Hey guys, it's been a while! I'm not going to make a big song and dance about blogging again like I usually do because I always say I'm going to keep it up and I never do. So this time I'm just going to do my best and see how it goes. And I'm going to jump straight in with a make-up review because I wouldn't even know where to begin with telling you what I've been up too for the last year or so!
So I went shopping with my friend Bekah a few months ago and we ended up at the Mac counter. At this point I had never purchased or tried out a Mac product before, usually always opting to be cheap and easy and with Mac lipsticks having a £15.50 price tag I always assumed it wouldn't really be worth it.
I'd recently purchased a Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in the colour '10 Rouge Buzz' and completely fallen in love with the colour, but I felt that the longevity wasn't good enough. When I saw Macs 'Lady Danger' the colour was pretty much identical, and I have heard a lot of good things about the quality of Mac so I decided to give it a go and I am glad to say I am totally converted!
I am a huge lover of red lipstick and probably wear it 6 out of 7 days a week. I feel like this product is ideal for me as the colour is shockingly bright (maybe too bright for some) it's matte not glossy and it lasts all day which is another major factor for me, as I am usually busy rushing in and around university and don't have time to reapply!
After spending about 2 months wearing Lady Danger without any other variety whatsoever I thought I would treat myself to another Mac lipstick. This time I opted for 'Candy Yum-Yum' because I have always been a huge fan of the bright pink Barry M lipsticks, 62 and 52 (i think) The colours are amazing but always tend to dry my lips out. Candy Yum-Yum is pretty much the same shade, perhaps slightly less shocking but the texture and application is so much better. I also purchased a lipliner in 'More to Love' to go with this. I think it cost around £14. The lipliner applies so well and blends in with the lipstick perfectly.
I am so pleased with my purchases and considering I have worn each of these lipsticks pretty much everyday since I bought them, I feel like I have definitely gotten my moneys worth and £15.50 seems reasonable for the insanely good quality. I will definitely be trying out more Mac products in the future!
