This summer MAC’s Hey Sailor collection has really delved into the bright lippy trend in a big way! The lippies I tried out were bright, well pigmented and just… well, really pretty! Even the ones that leaned toward orange worked for me, which was a bit of a shocker for my pale and cool toned skin.
Sail la Vie is a bright mid-tone orange that shocked me! It actually works with my cool toned skin! This is amazing, usually this is not even a remotely flattering color for me. It turns out that everyone can jump on to the orange trend bandwagon!
Send Me Sailing is a “bright yellow red” that looked more like a pink-red to me. (I seriously wonder who comes up with some of these descriptions over at MAC sometimes, they seem far off to me?) This is a shade that I’ll definitely be picking up, it looked great on my skin and will be perfect for this summer’s bright lippie trend as well as an alternative to a red lip for fall.
Rivera Life is a bright tangerine that probably would look amazing on my sister, the (natural) red head. It worked on me too, but wasn’t my favorite.
I know that lip liners are great for making your lipstick look professional and last all day, but I fully admit that the lazy girl in me frequently skips this step!
Saunter is a perfect pale beige/nude shade for pale girls like me. It will work with pretty much anything.
If you’ll be picking up any of the red/orange shades from the Hey Sailor collection definitely grab a Throw me a Line! liner. According to MAC this is a true red, but really on me it comes across as more of a tomato with some orange in it. It’s a great match for some of the lippies in this collection.
