MAC Modesty

Hello there,

Sometimes there are lipsticks that come into your life that you haven't heard of on any twitter chats or any blogs and sometimes those lipsticks are some of the best.

Recently I found one of those hidden gem lipsticks and today I thought I'd share it with you all.

On the MAC website it is described as a "muted neutral pink" which doesn't do it justice. This lipstick to me is a pinker version of MAC Blankety ,which is a lipstick that has a soft spot in my heart as it was one of my first ever MAC lipsticks.

As it is a Creamsheen, this lipstick applies nicely, has no drag to it and leaves the lips with a good layer of a creamy opaque colour. 

I absolutely adore this lip colour and I think it deserves more love out there. If you are a fan of nude lip colours, you need it, if you are going to be a bride soon and don't want an overly pink lip, you need it, if you are a lipstick obsessive or MAC collector, you definitely need it. 

Overall, this is a lipstick that you all definitely need in your lives. What do you think of this lipstick? Do you own it? 

Lots of Love,

Crazy about Lipstick Tag

Hey there,

So I was planning to put up another Lipstick post this weekend, however I haven't really been wearing lipstick thanks to a cut in my mouth and a little bruise I've got by my lip that I got whilst at work this week. So instead of leaving this week without a blog post I thought I would post a tag. I found this tag on YouTube and I thought that it would be a good one to do.

1. How many lipsticks in your collection?
Please don't make me actually count. I have 50 MAC Lipsticks, 24 other "high end" lipsticks then 7 narrow muji drawers full. Let's just say A LOT.

2. How old were you when you started wearing lipstick?

I don't know the exact age,I wore lipstick since about 15-16. But I wasn't as obsessed as I am until about 5 years ago.

3. What lipstick that you can't live without?

Hmmm... This changes often. Maybe a nice neutral like MAC Faux or Twig.

4. What lipstick do you use to stand out?

Anything that has a bold colour stands out in my village. I do love MAC Rebel and Urban Decay Anarchy when I want to stand out.

5. What were the lipsticks that you bought ?

Erm all of them...apart from a few I've won through giveaways.

6. What lipstick did you regret buying?

MAC Viva Glam Nicki II. I think I got caught by a sales ladies that day.

7. What is your favourite lipstick at the moment?

MAC Faux OR the pairing of MAC Snob Lipstick and Soar Lipliner, which I blogged about HERE.

8. What is the most expensive/inexpensive lipstick that you have ?

Most expensive are my Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks, which are £23 and inexpensive is the Natural Collection Lipsticks, which are £1.99.

9. Do you like, love or addicted to lipstick ?

Well, I have a lot of them as you can see, I don't think that I have enough PLUS I have a blog completely for Lipsticks. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted.

10. What lipstick that remind you of special someone ?

 Estee Lauder Pure Envy Lipstick in Desirable reminds me of my oldest friend as I wore it as a bridesmaid for her wedding.

I tag everyone who is reading this. Link me down below if you take part.

Lots of Love,

MAC Soar and Snob.. a dream team in the making?

Hey Lovelies,

Like most people out there, I'm a big YouTube fan, I probably watch more YT than television nowadays plus I have my own YouTube Channel which I post on twice a week so most of my life is on that site.

Whilst watching one of Lorna from Scared Toast, she mentioned a MAC pairing that I had not considered before. She mentioned putting MAC Soar Lipliner underneath Snob Lipstick.I bought Soar Lipliner recently thanks to the Kylie Jenner effect and Snob is a lipstick I've had for a while but hardly wear because it's quite light and blue toned.

I decided to try out Lorna's lipstick duo recently and I liked the results so I thought I'd share it with you all.

Soar Lipliner Left,Snob Right

The pairing together leaves a gorgeous deep pinky nude, which reminds me a bit of a more opaque version of  MAC Faux Lipstick. The deep tones of the Soar lipliner deepens the pale baby pink of Snob however the blue tones of Snob gives the final result a slight purple tinge to it. I'm so delighted for finding out about this pairing.

What do you think?
Lots of Love,
