MAC Originals LipsticksThursday, January 10, 2008
See those lipsticks? They are perfect. They could not be more perfect. Therefore, you all must buy them, but not before I buy myself a backup tube or two, especially of that pink one on the left!
First, these are MAC Lipsticks, which means I need say no more. They are highly pigmented, have very little scent/flavor, apply easily either straight from the tube or with a brush and best of all, they feel hydrating and are long lasting. The colors have great depth and truly are fantastic. That makes them typical MAC lipsticks, since all MAC lipsticks are like that.
However, these two shades are perfect!
That pale, pale somewhat matte looking pink lip? Incredibly easy (and flattering) with Utter Pervette, the pink shade on the left. MAC describes this as a Soft Pastel Pink, but it isn't just pink, it has a touch of nude in it to prevent your lips from looking like you used Pepto Bismol as a gloss. I have nothing against Pepto, but I don't think it's a flattering lippie.
As well, something about spring always makes me want to try a coral lip. This is not good for me, since I'm much more cool toned, and most corals have a bit too much warmth to make me look good. In comparison to the coral, I look dead or at least very anemic. Again, not a flattering look. Sandy B is the peachy pink on the right, and this is the perfect compromise for me! The added pink brightens my face, and I get a touch of peach which fulfills my coral-ish lip craving. This lipstick is a frost, but a few coats with a little blot afterwards seems to cut down the frostiness to the level where it adds sheen but doesn't look like I belong on Dallas or Miami Vice.
I know what lippies I'll be reaching for over and over this spring.... Do you?
