Mac Hot Gossip

Hey you beauties,

let’s welcome the newest family member to my Mac lipstick collection . It’s a beauty, ain’t it? Lately I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with mauve lipsticks. Since I’m a blonde I tend not to wear crazy bright pinks too often because even though they suit me quite well I don’t want to look like a barbie doll and unfortunately people are so quick to label you. Anyway.. totally getting off topic here. I love mauve toned lipsticks because to me they are the perfect neutral pink nude shade you can wear every day. It goes with a lot of make up looks, so when I came across Hot Gossip I just couldn’t help myself and had to get it.

Hot Gossip is in a Cremesheen finish, which I quite like because it feels very moisturizing on my lips and since mine tend to dry out that’s always a plus for me. Now the color is just a dusty pink mauve shade, which is absolutely gorgeous. I think it’s such a flattering shade and I’m head over heels for it. I think I’ve worn this almost every day since the delivery man brought it to my house and I know I’m going to get so much use out of this lipstick.

I think it’s a shade you can wear all year around and it really does go with so many looks, especially rather neutral ones. Since I’m more of a neutral girl by day this is such a perfect shade for me. The only downside I have with this lipstick is that it doesn’t last as long as some of my other Mac lipsticks. But I mostly go for mattes and they definitely tend to last longer on my lips than more creamy formulas. It still lasts a good deal but I don’t mind having to reapply one in a while. And at least it fades away evenly and doesn’t leave your lips looking like a mess, which is always a no no for me.

Basically as you can already guess from my review I’m very happy with this shade and I’n glad I decided to go for it. I love how neutral it is and I think it’s quite a flattering shade for my complexion. If you’re looking for more of a mauve/dusty pink shade you can wear every day and which is easy to pull off go I’d totally recommend this.

Would anyone be interested in reading a Mac lipstick collection post?

Thanks for reading!

Much love,

Sophie

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.

4. Apply a taupe eyeshadow along your eyelid fold, outer V and the waterline to bring definition to your eye.

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.

6. Apply a light pink blush.                                          7. Finish of the look with your favorite pink lipstick
