Mac’s Girl About Town Lipstick (Review + Swatches)

The sun’s been out quite a lot over here recently and although we still have some cold and rainy days I can feel summer coming closer each day. I can’t wait wearing my bright sundresses and brighter lipstick colors. I’m definitely a lipstick lover and over the summer my personal favorite shades are bright pink and coral ones and Mac’s Girl About Town is my favorite out of them all.




Isn’t the color just absolutely gorgeous? It a really pigmented bright pink color but what I love about it is that even though it is so bright and intense it’s not all up in your face. You know what I mean? Probably not. But there are some lipstick color that are so bright and intense they are just too bright and irritating. I hope you can sort of guess what I mean.

Anyway.. yeah the color is just perfection to me. This is my ideal version of a bright pink summer lipstick. It has a bit of a blue undertone which makes it suitable for almost every type of skin color. From pale to super tan it will look good on anyone.  Another thing I just love about this lipstick is its texture, because it is so creamy and moisturizing. It gives your lips a shiny and healthy looking finish. It lasts relatively long, so you don’t need to check every hour and re-apply. Whenever I’ve worn it I’ve only had to re-apply once a day. It does fade after a few hours but the good thing is that it fades equally, so you don’t end up with stained looking lips, cause nobody wants that, right?




All I can really say is if you love bright pink lipsticks for the summer months this is the one you need! I always get pretty excited about my favorite beauty products but I haven’t been this excited about a lipstick in a while.

Have any of you ever tried this one? What are your favorite lipsticks for summer?

Hope you have a great Monday.

Hey lovelies! Though I usually prefer a more nude look I do like to add some color and sport a bright lip during the day every once in a while. Today I want to show you my how to rock that bright pink lipstick during the day. With Valentine’s day coming up I thought this would also be a cute look if you like to keep it on the low make-up wise. The lipstick I’m using in this tutorial is one of my favourites because it is a pretty bright color but not too strongly pigmented and very glossy, which is why I think it’s a good lipstick for an everyday look.

1. Start of with foundation.                                         2. Apply light pink pigments on your eyelids.

3.  Apply light eyeshadow along your brow bone for highlighting.

5. Time for mascara! I’m using the Big Eyes mascara by Maybelline. I like to use this one because it has one brush for the upper lashes and one for the lower lashes.
