MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Lipcreme So Very Good

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Lipcreme 
 So Very Good

Hi everyone, I apologize for not posting in a while. I have been busy working and I had an interview at college for a Makeup Artistry course yesterday. I had to do a project for the interview and it took me a few weeks to finish it as I wanted perfection (as usual..). 
Fingers crossed I get into the next practical interview! :)

MAC's So Very Good lipstick is a creamy plummy brown. It has a slight shimmer in it which doesn't show up very much once applied and also has a hint of red. The application was flawless and I only needed one application as it is very pigmented. It lasted for over 7 hours but I then reapplied. After so many hours of wear, I was surprised my lips hadn't bled or dried out, thanks to the formula!

 This pairs beautifully with a toned down brown smokey eye.
This is my first pro longwear lipstick from MAC and I have loved it so far. The biggest difference is the shape of the lipstick and tube. It is circular in shape and some may find this challenging to apply if they have thinner lips.  

I give this lipstick an overall rating of 9.5/10! It's a tremendous score for a terrific lipstick.
Anyone thinking of buying a pro longwear lipstick should go for it as this has done me proud.

MAC Magenta Lip Pencil

MAC Cosmetics 'Magenta' Lip Liner

This colour really pulled me in. 
It is a beautiful purple-pink shade and can be paired with MAC's Girl About Town, Rebel, Impassioned & Heroine. I have personally only used this lip pencil with Heroine, but the combination is stunning. It applies smoothly and prevents the lipstick from bleeding. It lasted for 5 hours and needed a little re-application. The great thing about this lip pencil is if you struggle to find a lipstick to pair it with, you can apply the pencil all over instead. I found it neither drying nor hydrating. The texture is soft and the application of the colour is opaque.

 I have many other MAC lip pencil's but this one is by far the boldest colour I own. It can be quite an intimidating colour if you are just starting to use lip liners, but if you are looking for a fushia type pencil to pair with a new lipstick, I say go for it. I always try and use a liner to stop the lipstick from bleeding and to get the perfect lip shape. I would give this lip liner 7.5 out of ten. I do really like it for it's bold colour but I am just not that greatly impressed. Also, having to reapply it after 5 hours just isn't ideal if you are out and about.

MAC Dangerous Lipstick Review - Perfect for Spring!

 +MAC Cosmetics MAC Dangerous Lipstick

I just had to try this lipstick. The colour was screaming at me to pick it. It's true colour is red, but applies mostly orange and the lipstick being a retro matte didn't put me off.

A lot of people find retro mattes too drying and hard to apply, but once you have it on you forget the pain of having to apply it. This lipstick lasted for 6-7 hours without having to reapply. The colour payoff was gorgeous and once again the smell never fails to impress. 

I can't believe how long it's taken me to try an orangey-red lipstick. I was truly surprised as to how much I love it! It is also perfect for spring time and will look great in the summer too. It is easily paired with a soft eye to focus attention on the lips, and paired with a dark smokey eye is also beautiful and not too much!

My overall rating of this lipstick is 10/10! I know the application isn't as easy as other finishes, but the end result is too gorgeous not to give it a perfect ten! If you're looking for a new spring time lipstick to add some colour, this is just what you're looking for!

I hope you enjoyed my review :)

And a big thanks to my great sponsor!
