Review | MAC & Topshop Lipsticks | Blogmas Day 18

7 sleeps until Santa!

Recently I have become obsessed with lip products – being a beauty blogger has undoubtedly made me change my mind and fall in love with these gorgeous things. Basically, what I’m trying to say, is I blame you all for my lacks of pennies and excess of lipsticks.

Topshop Lipstick | Innocent & Topshop Lipstick | Beguiled

I’ve never really had the opinion that Topshop makeup products would be any good. I’ve always felt that it’s just another one of those extra things that the store could add on and make a few extra quid from. Boy – was I wrong! I really should listen to people when they tell me not to judge a book by it’s cover! I am in love with these bad boys. My first purchase was ‘Beguiled’ , a berry shade which, although I never thought would look good on me or suit me, is now one of my favourite go-to lipsticks. It’s so moist and lasts a great length of time before needing another coat. The second is a more girly colour of lipstick. Again. I never thought that this would be a shade that I would go for – As much as my Dad may call me Barbie, I most definitely am not into that ‘Barbie’ look. However, coming across this gorgeous pink shade completely changed my mind. It’s a gorgeous colour and with the same formula (I presume) as Beguiled, I had to pop it onto the counter and make the cheeky purchase.

MAC Creme Sheen Lipstick | Fanfare

 My first ever MAC product. Can we just appreciate how pretty this colour is please?! I was so excited when I first slid my debit card into the machine and punched into those four numbers that secured this product as my own. Walking out of the shop with my MAC bag in hand and new lip product in my clutches was a great feeling. The lipstick itself is amazing – sorry, I know that’s a rubbish description, but for my first MAC product, I was not disappointed. I bought a ‘Creme Sheen’ lipstick in the shade ‘Fanfare’, it’s such a great formulation and so far I haven’t found it to be too sticky or too dry at all. It has a great ‘shelf life’ (as I like to call it), which is great for me especially, because I always forget to reapply throughout the day!This may be my first MAC lipstick, but it most certainly will not be my last.

And it wasn’t! Merely days after writing this post originally I did the naughty – I bought another one. Ladies and Gentlemen, from Nicki Minaj’s collection – Viva Glam. The most vibrant pink colour I have ever seen and have ever tried. I absolutely love it. I was so shocked that this colour suited me when I tried it on in Debenhams at the MAC counter. Again, this is a great lipstick which stays on quite a while even without my (new) beloved LipCote (review coming soon) and it is amazingly pigmented. It’s such a great shade to wear and I feel like such a Barbie when I’m rocking it (hello, Disney Princess / Barbie dreams?!) I was right about MAC, these will definitely not be my last lippies!

Which is your favourite brand of lip products?

      It is such a lovely colour, as I didn't think I was so suited to darker tones, I find it hard to style but i am a lover, i must say! Xx

    I adore MAC lipsticks, and Fanfare is a lovely colour. I love Snob which is a slightly paler frosty pink!
