MAC Lipstick in Lovelorn | My First MAC Lipstick!

After months of asking about MAC Lipsticks and MAC in general I finally took the plunge and purchased my first lipstick. I was constantly being told how amazing they were but I put off purchasing over and over again.

I was set on purchasing Blankety for a while but after looking at other colours I knew that the one for me was lovelorn and so I finally did it and purchased my first MAC lipstick.



Its a lovely wearable pink and a everyday pink. Its a lustre finish and I really like it, I used to love matte finishes and hated any kind of shine on my lips but I've started to like them even more.





I have pretty pale skin so this is very true to the real colour, this is it at its full intensity, I love the lustre finish as you can build them up to your liking.



I love it on my lips! I think it really suits me and compliments my skintone. I'm glad I bought such a wearable shade as I will get a lot of use out of it.

£14 is a lot for me to spend on one product but this was a treat for me. I treat that I am really glad that I bought! The next shade I'm after is Hot Gossip which was in my first spending ban update.

This lipstick is pigmented and feels lovely on my lips. Lustre finishes are very well known for not lasting too long compared to other finishes. This isn't something that bothers me too much as I don't mind re-applying. I know it can be frustrating but personally its not a big deal for me. It lasts about 3 hours on me but does not survive food. Again this is not something that will stop me from buying more lipsticks from MAC.

It has a lovely vanilla scent to it which I've heard a lot about. I love this scent and can't stop smelling it!

Overall I think I am a MAC convert thanks to the lovely ladies on twitter, thank you for convincing me to buy it!

Thanks for reading,
Shona x
