You can be ashamed of me once i’ve admitted this but up until about a year ago I had never owned a MAC lipstick. I know outrage in the blogger world but in all honesty before then lipstick was something I rarely wore.
Red is always an ahhh moment for me, I am never too sure if it suits me but pink nudes however I discovered do. Kylie Jenner made these two here famous and well I am glad she did because for the last year MAC Twig lipstick & Soar Lipliner have been my go to combo all year round.
They match perfectly, the lip liner gives prefect definition and creates a fully plumped look before filling in with Twig. I had heard that some people found MAC lipstick to be drying but I haven’t yet. I now own 5/6 shades and all of them sit nicely on the lips, not too drying but of course not hydrating either. They glide on well and the colour lasts for the best part of the day as it slightly stains the lip and the lipliner gives the lipstick a good base to hold onto.
I was going to get Whirl lipliner instead as its supposed to be the match for Twig but for me this combo just works better. Had this lipstick and lipliner thang not gone completely viral I may have never became a lipstick convert. I think its quite a 90’s style look but I’m a 90’s kid so its acceptable in my books because its revived and the whole idea of recycling the good makeup trends is the same as in fashion and its creating a whole new era where all the best bits through time are at one.
Overall I would give them a 5/5 which for a lipstick loather to lover is pretty darn good. Don’t get me wrong you wont get me in a purple lipstick out in public anytime so but subtle and chic wins the poll for me.
What’s your MAC combo? Do you have any great dupes?
