Today was a red day. Not just any red though, it had to be my MAC Red. If there is one colour that MAC do well it is a red. So, what sets this particular one apart from the rest? Well, MAC Red really flatters my pale skin tone as it looks like a pinky red on my lips. The finish is beautiful, it is lustrous but with a nice dewy finish.
I applied MAC Red this morning and it was still on at lunch time! Now, that is pretty impressive for a lipstick! It stayed put after eating and drinking various cups of tea…..now that really is special! I touched it up post lunch and it remained until home time. I did notice it was slightly wearing off in the centre of my lips by the time I got home, but the longevity is still pretty impressive. Sometimes when this happens it can look really messy but I could just about pull this fading off. This lipstick also made my teeth look lovely and white – I guess that’s another bonus to being a blue red!
As you can see from the picture above, I did not apply heavily – it was a work day after all, but at least you can see the diversity of MAC Red. Yes, it is a bright vibrant red and applied with a lip liner and heavier it certainly does create a bold lip. I however, opted to apply only using a lip brush and a much lighter touch and as you can see this gives a lovely finish.
So there we have it. MAC Red. The lipstick that got me through the first day of the week!
