Other than the RiRiWoo which was a total impulse buy since it’s limited edition and the packaging was lush this is the first MAC lipstick I’ve bought in AGES.. over a year maybe. I picked it up in London a couple of weeks ago. I had a list an stuck to it (good girl) but one I really wanted and didn’t think would suit me was New York Apple.. my friend bought it while we were there and it looks SO good on her that I now REALLY want it.. ESPECIALLY cause we’re in New York NEXT MONTH!! Excited? Me? Uh.. YEAH! Anyway.. I’m shopping this evening and will be in the vicinity of a MAC counter so you never know.. it may feature in the series before the end.. gorgeous Christmas red.
Moving on to the colour at hand.. not strictly festive but very much an Autumn/Winter shade and whereas many of the lipsticks I’ll be showing you over the 12 days are very bold I wanted to offer a couple of less in-yer-face alternatives. I wouldn’t necessarily wear a bright red lip to work but this is perfect. A lustre finish so sheer and glossy, nowhere near as dark as it appears in the tube so don’t be put off. I had a couple of lipsticks on my list but when I got to the store they were all so similar I decided on this one and am so pleased I did. A great everyday plum.
