MAC Lipstick in Syrup // Review


A few weeks back I was lucky enough to win Lisa's MAC Lipstick giveaway! I had a pretty good idea of what shade I wanted to get after Angelica from One Little Vice has been recommending this shade, Syrup, to me for a while now! When I first saw this lipstick I didn't think I'd ever own it, it looks really dark! I took the plunge anyway and I'm so glad I did, this is probably my favourite A/W lipstick now!


Syrup is a Lustre formula which is my favourite out of the finishes I've tried, the lustre formula is so creamy and light. This does mean the lipsticks tend to be a little sheer but being 16 means that I don't want a bold lip colour so this formula is perfect for me!

Syrup is almost like a cloudy plum shade, muted but the plum tones are still there. It is a bit of a your lips but better shade, just with a splash of plum in it. This makes it perfect for the colder months, the warmth of the lipstick isn't going to make you look dead though and I think it really compliments my pale skin.

Pigmentation wise it's similar to a well pigmented lip crayon, you can see the colour but it's almost like it is cloudy as your natural lip colour still shines through a little. I know this won't appeal to everyone but I'm not a fan of a bold lip so this is perfect for me, you can see the colour on your lips but it isn't loud or bright. As for lasting time again because of the formula it isn't great, this lasts maybe 2 hours on me but it doesn't bother me really! It keeps my lips feeling moisturised as well which is a plus in winter.

It is safe to say this has become one of my favourite lipsticks!

What's your favourite A/W lip product?

  1. I've never tried MAC lipstick before. I like the crayon-y effect though. Color looks pretty.

    1. Fair enough, if won't be for everyone, maybe MAC do a similar shade that is a bit bolder? :) x

  7. Ooh I love this colour! I'm scared of the bold lip and tend to gravitate to sheerer colours like this. Want! xx

    1. You sound a bit like me, I much prefer a quieter lip! The boldest lip colour I went is Revlon's Lip Butter in Candy Apple on select occasions, not very adventurous haha! Let me know what you think if you do get it! xx
