MAC Lipsticks GALORE!!

Howdy-do, my precious cupcakes.

I got a suggestion from a few lovely followers to do some reviews. Specifically, on things that I got from a recent haul here.

The two lovely followers were beautiful Ashley and Olive, who were requesting lipstick and eyeshadow reviews. (Be expecting a lot of reviews in your future!) ;}

Soo, I took my three brand-spankin’-new MAC lipsticks and decided to swatch and describe them in detail.

First off, is sexy and red-hot Lady Danger.

First, the color is gorgeous. It’s a lovely orange-red with a matte finish, very classic and vivid. You can get rich color in one swipe, so pigmentation is no problem. Neither is staying power…this stuff sticks. (AND stains!!!)

Now, guys, this is a matte lipstick. If you have dryer lips, this will cling to those icky bits of dead skin. So, I suggest exfoliating and putting on a lip conditioner before you use this!

The next time you’re at a MAC counter, try this baby on. You won’t regret it!

Second is flashy Girl About Town.

This, in comparison to “Lady Danger”, is a thousand times more buttery. You can also build up the color, depending on if you want a sheer or opaque look.

Also, I loooove the color; it’s a medium fuchsia with blue undertones. On an olive-toned girl, it just makes my skin glow!  A cream/gloss finish isn’t half-bad either. It just looks so yummy on the lips!

LAST, but not least, angelic Creme Cup!

To be honest, this doesn’t swatch too well, but it looks amazing on the lips! It’s not your average boring nude, it’s a milky, sweet pink that won’t wash you out.

I can totally understand the hype on this one. If you want a “My Lips But Better”, or MLBB shade, try this one! It’s light and buildable, perfect for everyday or to pair with a smokey eye.

Staying power could be better, but I don’t mind reapplying this one. It’s so moisturizing and creamyyy. :}

Anyway, that’s all the lippies! I hope these reviews were helpful, and I apologize for keeping it brief.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’d be glad to get back to you!

PEACE!!!!! <333

MAC Candy Yum Yum, Y’alls!!

Hello my darlings!

I recently bought some MAC lipsticks in the mail, and the legendary “Candy Yum Yum” was one of them. Let me tell you…it is CARAAAZAYY-bright!

I mean, HOT DAYYUM look at that bullet!

It’s glowing FRICKIN’ neon!

..how is this supposed to look good on my face?

I got a HUGE recommendation from Tyme The Infamous on Youtube, who raved over this lipstick.  Of course, she was a woman of color, and it looked great on her.

However, it is nearly neon. On some of us, chances are it’ll look pretty strange.

As you can see from the swatch, it is an intense hot-pink with a purple undertone. It’s supposed to be a matte formula, but it’s more like a velvet finish that isn’t too drying.

In Tyme’s words, “It’s like MAC pigment on the lips.”

When I put it on, I was expecting to feel so glamorous! But the sad thing is…I’m not sure if the color works on my skin.

IMG_2987I mean, it makes my lips look really full…

But what do you guys think?

OVER ALL: This is a fun lipstick and will add great variety to your collection! I suggest you try it on first, though, because it looks different on everyone.

If you’re a darker-skinned girl, chances are it’ll look STUNNING on you!

P.S: Sorry for slacking off and not reviewing this for a while. Everything’s a bit hectic right now.

Love you guys and talk to you soon! Pinky-swear.

See ya, Curly-Fries.
