You all know by now how much I love MAC lipsticks. To me, it’s what MAC do best and while there are some shades that wouldn’t be to my taste, nearly every lipstick I’ve tried from MAC, I have liked or loved.
Today’s shade, Crosswires, is a kind of muted coral shade. It’s not bright like most corals, but has more of a caramel undertone to it which really grew on me the longer I wore it. I love the subtlety of the shade; it’s bright enough for a Summer or holiday lip, but it’s also not too dramatic if you want a more neutral or relaxed look.
Cremesheen finishes aren’t my favourite MAC finish, but I still like them nonetheless because of the soft, sheer glow they give the lips. The pigment is on point as always, and the colour pay off is also great, even though it has a slightly sheer finish.
Lasting power isn’t as great as their creme or matte finishes, but is still pretty good and this one held up very well, particularly in the Tenerife heat which was a pleasant surprise. I thought the heat may have a melting affect on the lippy but it didn’t at all so that’s definitely a bonus if you’re still to head off on holiday.
