Following on from yesterday’s lipstick, today’s is another from my MAC Mini Lipstick snowball set that I picked up in the airport on my way over to London. I came to spend the weekend with my family as it’s the last weekend I could fly before bump arrives in the New Year!
Yesterday’s shade, Love Buddy, was a soft pink shade which was fine but I didn’t love it. Today’s shade however, I absolutely adore! Dangerously Red to me, is really more of a pink than a red; it has a gorgeous raspberry undertone and is fabulously bold and bright. I love shades like this at any time of year, but they are particularly nice on a dull and miserable winter’s day when you want to brighten up your makeup look.
The finish once again is matte, and as you all know by now, I just love MAC matte lipsticks. I put this lippy on in the morning and only needed to reapply it a couple of times throughout the day. It leaves my lips feeling soft when I wear it, and the full coverage is just perfect too.
For me, MAC mattes are just creamy enough to not dry out the lips, and the rich creamy texture is very smooth which makes application so easy too. It is blendable, moisturising and definitely one of the better mattes on the market in my opinion.
Usually a MAC lipstick will set you back €20 so these mini’s are a great way of trying out some shades for a lot less money if you’re not sure about what kind of shade or formula you like best. They also come in a super cute silver sequin bag which is the perfect accessory for the silly season!
