|Left to right: Syrup, Rebel, Crosswires and Chatterbox|
When I was in New York I wanted to get a few MAC things as they are cheaper over there and I managed to pick up two lipsticks - Syrup and Chatterbox. I have to say I really like their lipsticks, they are hydrating, pigmented and have such a great selection of colours and finishes.
I have 4 different lipsticks from different finishes but I have to say that I think lustre is my favourite. The Lustre finishes can be applied lightly and really help to moisturise the lips.
Syrup - Lustre
Syrup is my favourite out of the 4 and probably my all time favourite lipstick. It is soft, creamy and a lovely neutral/everyday colour. I have recently compared it with the L'Oreal Liquid Lipstick Molto Mauve once applied to the lips. Originally I was looking for Plumful but the shop did not have that shade and I spotted this one instead. It is a purple toned pink and absolutely brilliant!! I know I will repurchase this. I can wear it as an everyday colour and for going out with a smokey/full eye look.
Chatterbox - Amplified
I haven't worn this lipstick as much as I should have but it is definitely a summer shade and I plan to wear it more this summer. As it's amplified it needs a bit more care during application but is still creamy. It is definitely more pigmented then syrup but has an equally lovely colour. Chatterbox on me is a baby/barbie pink colour, although it looks brighter in the packaging.
Crosswires - Cremesheen
Cremesheens are quite a few people's favourite formula (I still prefer Lustres). This is a recent purchase and already I've been loving it. On my lips this is a coral red colour and again applies easily and leaves a good finish - a little glossy but not as much as Syrup.
Rebel - Satin
This is another newer purchase. I really like the colour although I need to be careful with the application as it is a dark and pigmented colour. When applied fully this is a deep purple colour, although if dabbed on sparingly it is a lighter pinky purple colour (much more purple than pink). I need to have confidence when wearing this and test it out when eating.
I am really enjoying the formula of the MAC lipsticks and the colours they offer. At the moment I am happy with my MAC collection and will probably wait until I have run out of some before I buy another one (although that could easily change!)
