For today’s Simply Lippy choice I’ve chosen one of my oldest favourites: one that has been part of my makeup collection for many years now, and more years than I can even remember!
You may have read my Day 15 post on how MAC Rebel was one of my first dark lipstick purchases, but today’s shade came even before that. I’m pretty sure I bought this for the first time about ten years ago but that could be a slight exaggeration. Let’s just say it’s been a very long time!
Anyway, the lippy is a MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass and the shade, Whoops!, is the most wonderfully, bright coral colour. Yes, it’s not a shade I would normally opt for in Winter, but the weather has been so lovely and sunny the past few days, and after all my neutral shades so far this week, I really wanted to add a strong pop of colour to my makeup today.
The Pro Longwear Lipglass formula is incredibly long lasting, and the colour pay off is insane! I mean, it’s perfect. The finish is a high shine gloss which can sometimes affect lippy longevity, but this lippy really doesn’t disappoint. And that’s probably the reason why it’s been a favourite of mine for so long now.
Although I don’t tend to wear glosses as often as lipsticks, I love that you can easily build your colour with glosses too. Whether you want a light or strong application, both are very easy to achieve by layering, especially with this product.
In the photos the colour does look a little more orange than coral, so I’ve taken one photo with flash and the other without flash to try give you a better idea.
