I love this lipstick! It’s really easy to get a crisp line straight from the bullet with this formula. It never gathers or looks dry. It’s not moisturising, but it’s not drying either. I always prep my lips with MAC Lip Conditioner before I wear their mattes, blot my lips then apply the lipstick. After about 4 hours of wear I dab a tiny bit of Lip Conditioner over the top and that keeps my lips happy. I can skip that step without

On my NC20 skintone (I have neutral-to-warm undertones) it looks like a warm-toned red, super flattering and lovely. However on my NC40 friend, it looks straight orange (though just as lovely)! I was shocked to see it’s such a chameleon!

I got this as a Back 2 Mac shade, almost as an afterthought – and I am impressed! It’s crazy pigmented, and the shade is so flattering – much more so than I expected.

It can be hard to get a crisp line straight from the bullet, and one does NEED a clear line with a shade like this. The upside is, it’s so matte that I can go outside my natural lip line and it will stay there. It’s not drying or hydrating – I dab a little lip conditioner over the top after about 4 hours and I’m good.

It really creates a classic, pin-up look – AND it does actually makes my teeth look whiter (no, really!!).

Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

Works very well with my yellow undertones and smaller, plumper lips for an everyday colour that branches out a little from the everyday beige/pinky nudes. It remains subtle but effective in making my lips look great plus brings out my blue eyes!

Ravishing
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

I feel like this IS a pretty lipstick, and the consistency and colour in the tube is lovely. It also seems to look great on everyone else… but me!? It just makes me look a little alien (in a bad way – not a Scarlett Johansson way unfortunately) so for that reason, it’s a little regret in buying it.

Lustering
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Lustering has to be one of my favourite lipstick colours from MAC. It is such a perfectly pretty berry-pink (as opposed to a milky pink) that I just love wearing. My only complaint is that as it is a Lustre (not a Frost, as it’s described above), it is not all that long-wearing. But I love it so much that I can overlook that one flaw a bit, though I am always on the lookout for something like Lustering but in a more long-lasting formula.

This lipstick is creamy and very easy to apply. I think this lipstick is perfect for spring/summer and night time. I love pairing this up with a neutral eye to add a pop of color.

I decided to try out this shade because I wanted an everyday pink lipstick. This lipstick is nice and creamy. I have pretty dry lips and it doesn’t feel drying to me. This is my perfect nude pink lipstick.

I found that this shade washed out my skin, just too pale for my liking. Not very long wearing at all and found it to be too drying on my lips, so I would recommend a lip primer or moisturise lips with a balm of some sort. Heard so many reviews boosting this shade so wanted to jump on board and try it for myself, now regretting my purchase.

LOVE! Absolutely beautiful colour – runs much more purple on me than on Christines lip swatch. Doesn’t require a lot of reapplication – just after a meal but it does tend to leave a deep pink stain on my lips the next day.

A beautiful orange-red with a true matte finish. Once it is on it will stay for an extremely long time but it does take a bit to apply as it is a very dry finish lipstick. I suggest applying a thin layer of balm shortly before application.

From the photos I found online, I was expecting this to be a neutral, so I ordered the lipstick as well as lip glass. It was too pink for my complexion. I sent both back.

I’m totally in love with this shade for spring, it’s my perfect coral; not too pastel but not too bright and leans more towards orange than pink. Application and wearability are excellent like most MAC lipsticks, it’s moisturising and doesn’t bleed. It applies well and is opaque in a coat or two giving even coverage. The finish is similar to other MAC amplified formulas, creamy and opaque with a slight sheen to the finish. The formula feels lightweight and moisturising on the lips, it really is a dream to wear.
It will last a good few hours and has will cope ok with moderate drinking and eating, I’ve managed a coffee and a snack without loosing all colour or getting the dreaded outer ring of colour but it’s not a ‘long lasting’ lipstick so don’t expect miracles.
Another excellent MAC lipstick.

Flamingo was such a surprise—it looks SO orange in the tube but it’s actually really pretty pink with just a bit of coral as Christine says. I seriously never would have tried it if I didn’t see this review.
