There are very few lipsticks that compare to MAC lipsticks for me, and of all the many MAC shades I’ve tried over the years, I love nearly every single one. It’s rare that I don’t like one, and today’s shade is another example of that.
Hang-Up is a rich plum toned shade, very similar to two of my all time MAC favourites, Rebel and Dark Side. In fact, I would say this sits right in the middle of those two shades; it’s not quite as purple as Rebel, but not quite as dark as Dark Side.
It has everything I love in a lipstick; intense pigment, great colour pay off, a rich tone, good lasting power and a lovely finish. Cremesheen finishes aren’t my favourite of the MAC finishes, but they are smooth with a very slight sheen gloss, and give your lips a lovely pop of colour no matter what the shade.
I’m not sure that it could replace the love I have for my two favourite berry shades as they have a special place in my heart, but I do love it and will definitely be reaching for it a lot once my challenge is over.
I don’t know about you but I love rich tones like this for Autumn and I’m very excited that we’re heading into the cooler months. I’m usually a Summer girl through and through, but this year for some reason, I feel very ready for Autumn to arrive so you’ll be seeing a lot more shades like this over the coming months!
