Lovelorn and Loved Up: My Introduction to MAC

Today I opened my mail and had a small (rather large) squee to myself. Lovely Emma from Em's Mixed Bag  had sent me a MAC lipstick! I had won her giveaway a couple of weeks ago and the prize fabulously was your pick of a MAC lippie. I went for Lovelorn. It's such a nice pink and a really everyday colour. I think Emma ended up getting herself Lovelorn as well so it is a really popular versatile colour.

Gorgeously wrapped from Em





This is it in daylight, in my little backyard with the pug running around my heels. It's a really gentle pink.

I think it's really pretty. Em had said to me that I'd love the MAC lippies because they were so creamy. I have to say she's right. My last (and first) lippie post where I tried out my first lipstick I was pondering how to keep it on. I also remarked how stressful it was worrying about the dark colour coming off leaving me with dark liner. You were all wonderful and by giant consensus have told me that lipcote and a foundation/primer will see me good. Thanks guys. This colour doesn't need it which is fabulous. I'm a bit worried now, I think this may be the start of a lipstick obsession. Uh oh!

You can check out Emma's blog here Em's Mixed Bag she's lovely so do say hello.

Mac lipsticks are the best! This is so pretty, I'm such a sucker for pinks. This will completely set you off now..

OMG I love it! I've never given my lips much thought before I'm a big Too Faced Extreme Lip Injection fan but since I've been lipsticking I've noticed shape a lot more. *Blush*I think this is starting a bad trend! lol

DawnieP said...

This is my first one and I have to say it's lovely and creamy. There is also a ridiculous amount of shades!

Oh MAC!! I'm a big MAC fan. You can't go wrong. If you love the lipstick you have to try the eye colors. They have a great line. Their Lipglass is awesome too :) Can you tell I really love it?haha

Ooh that is a gorgeous colour, definitely going on my wishlist! I bought my first MAC lipstick a few months ago, and I'm in love. They're so creamy and long-lasting - I want one in every shade!
