MAC LOVELORN LIPSTICK (LUSTRE) REVIEW

December 7, 2010 § Leave a comment

MAC LIPSTICK

LOVELORN (LUSTRE)

 

DESCRIPTION: Light to medium cool toned pink lipstick that is not too over the top.  Moisturizing finish.

COST: $14.50 USD $35 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those wanting a light blue toned pink lip. Would look great with smokey eyes.

APPLY WITH: Lip brush (316) or straight from the tube.

REVIEW: I purchased my MAC lipstick off the MAC website. I was looking for a nice light pink shade and decided on Lovelorn. I have also heard many great reviews about Lovelorn.

MAC lipsticks come in different finishes (E.g. frost, matte, cremesheen) and Lovelorn is a lustre finish. Lustre finishes give your lips a nice light sheen of color and are not too drying. Lustres, along with cremesheens are my favourite MAC lipstick finishes because they are somewhat moisturizing.

Lovelorn is a beautiful light to medium blue pink color. Light pinks do frighten me sometimes because i’m afraid they will make me look washed out, but Lovelorn looks absolutely gorgeous with my pale skin.

OVERALL: Lovelorn is absolutely beautiful. My HG light lipstick. Looks great with neutral looks and is also great paired up with intense eyes. Would definitely recommend!

MAC SPEAK LOUDER LIPSTICK (CREMESHEEN) REVIEW

December 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

MAC LIPSTICK

SPEAK LOUDER (CREMESHEEN)



DESCRIPTION: Bright blue pink lipstick.

COST: $14.50 USD $35 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those looking for a creamy bright dark pink lipstick. I would not recommend this if you are looking for a natural colored lipstick or are afraid of bright lipstick colors.

APPLY WITH: Lip brush (316) or straight from the tube.

REVIEW: I purchased my MAC lipstick off the MAC website. I chose Speak Louder because it looked like a really vibrant bright pink color that would be perfect to wear on special occasions.

MAC lipsticks come in different finishes (E.g. lustre, matte, frost) and Speak Louder is a cremesheen finish. Cremesheen finishes, along with lustres are my favorite finishes because they are quite moisturizing.

Speak Louder is a really gorgeous bright blue pink and goes on very smoothly. It doesn’t take much product to develop a really bright color.

OVERALL: I think this is the pink version of a “bright red” lipstick. Such a gorgeous bright pink color to wear when going out or clubbing (or during the day if you’re brave!). I recommend this if you are looking for a really bright pink lipstick or if you like bright lipsticks and are not into reds.

MAC SPEED DIAL LIPSTICK (CREMESHEEN) REVIEW

MAC LIPSTICK

SPEED DIAL (CREMESHEEN)

DESCRIPTION: Creamy medium blue pink lipstick

COST: $14.50 USD $35 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those looking for a creamy bright blue pink color.

APPLY WITH: Lip brush (316) or straight from the tube.

REVIEW: I purchased my MAC lipstick off the MAC website. I chose Speed Dial because it looked like a fun bright pink color.

MAC lipsticks come in different finishes (E.g. lustre, matte, frost) and Speed Dial is a cremesheen finish. Cremesheen finishes, along with lustres are my favorite finishes because they are quite moisturizing.

I find that this color comes out different on everyone (Unless MAC has changed the formula). I’ve seen on some people it comes out a nice light pink and on others it comes out bright almost hot pink. Because my lips are pigmented, Speed Dial comes out a really bright almost hot pink color.

OVERALL: I love the creaminess of this lipstick because my lips get a little bit dry. I also really love the bright pink color. I think during the day I will apply this lightly to give my lips a hint of bright color and apply more heavily when I’m going out.

MAC BOMBSHELL LIPSTICK (FROST) REVIEW

MAC LIPSTICK

BOMBSHELL (FROST)


DESCRIPTION: Bright rosy pink with shimmer.

COST: $14.50 USD $35 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those looking for a  light to medium bright pink color. I would not recommend this product if you have dry lips.

APPLY WITH: Lip brush (316) or straight from the tube.

REVIEW: I purchased my MAC lipstick off the MAC website. I chose Bombshell because it looked like a fun bright pink color.

MAC lipsticks come in different finishes (E.g. lustre, matte, cremesheen) and Bombshell is a frost finish. I find frost finishes a little drying and can sometimes make any dryness on your lips appear more obvious. Therefore, I always apply a little bit of lip balm to my lips before I apply the lipstick or a little gloss afterwards.

I think Bombshell is a cute summery girly pink color. It reminds me of a color the Victoria’s Secret girls would wear.

OVERALL: I think the color is gorgeous! The downfall with this lipstick is that the frost finish just doesn’t sit properly on my lips and can emphasise any dryness. I don’t think I will purchase again, not because of the color, but because I’m not a fan of the frost finish. If you like frost finishes, then I would definitely recommend because the color is pretty.

MAC LIPSTICK

SWEETIE (LUSTRE)


DESCRIPTION: Medium colored plummy rosy pink lipstick. Gives lips a hint of natural looking color.

COST: $14.50 USD $35 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those looking for a sheer natural color that goes with any look.

APPLY WITH: Lip brush (316) or straight from the tube.

REVIEW: I purchased my MAC lipstick off the MAC website. I was looking for a pink shade that was very natural and decided on Sweetie.

MAC lipsticks come in different finishes (E.g. frost, matte, cremesheen) and Sweetie is a lustre finish. Lustre finishes give your lips a nice light sheen of color and are not too drying. Lustres, along with cremesheens are my favourite MAC lipstick finishes because they are somewhat moisturizing.

I love the color sweetie because it gives my lips a tiny hint of color and makes them look healthy.

OVERALL: I just love how this color looks on my lips! And I love how the lustre finish doesn’t dry out my lips. Sweetie is now my basic natural everyday lipstick HG. I would definitely recommend and buy again!
