#30in30 MAC All Fired Up

This was a total impulse purchase at the end of last month when I’d decided to do this series and didn’t quite have 30 new lip products to put together for it. I already had my eye on a couple of other but I needed one more to round it off and this was that one more. I’m a big fan of the retro matte formula’s from MAC but I don’t wear a lot of red.. mainly because it’s messy and can wear badly but this is SO nice. It DOES need touching up or it can wear away in a not so pretty fashion as you eat and drink but it lasts 10x longer than the average on me. I wore it to Sunday lunch and my parents and it barely budged through my roast dinner and the copious cups of tea that followed.

When I pulled it out yesterday I was very aware I’d only just shown you a matte red but- see here – (and here’s where I might lose some of you) it’s a totally different colour! That was very orange by comparison, this much more on the pink side and definitely the one I’d pick if I had to choose. As formula goes that one was VERY good for the money and if you’re pinching pennies it’s a great matte red but if you’re looking to treat yourself and like a very matte texture I don’t think All Fired Up will disappoint!

    I hadn’t even heard of ‘All Fired Up’ before! What a beautiful shade, and despite it being a matte formula it looks as though it leaves a very smooth finish on the lips. A lot of the time I struggle to reapply MAC matte’s though… they tend to go flaky. Is this any different? Might give it a whirl!

      I would agree.. if you leave it too long then I have to wipe a little before I reapply but if I keep it topped up it’s fine

    This looks amazing! And the wear time sounds very impressive as well. I don’t quite have the confidence to wear reds most of the time, but I’m trying to work on that!

    I love a red lip. A fashion that will never go out of fashion

    The shade looks quite similar to my MAC ladybug, but with a matte finish. Love it.
