Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! Hope you're all well, unlike myself! I'm just sitting in my pink, fluffy dressing gown nursing off my nasty freshers flu. What better way to spend the day blogging? I thought I would post a second time today, as I really need to catch up with my blogging - that and, I just couldn't RESIST telling you all about my new favourite lipstick. My 'September Lipstick' would have to be the infamous Angel by Mac. This is a baby pink colour, but also looks slightly nude. Let me tell you this, this lipstick is AMAZING. Not even joking. Last month I raved about Mac's 'Creme Cup', yet in comparsion - I think I might actually prefer Angel. Although, people would say that Creme Cup and Angel are really similar. However this particular lipstick is the perfect shade between pink and nude, without looking too baby pink like Creme Cup does. It suits the colour of your own lips, but adds a little extra oompf! Excuse the slightly scuffed packaging, as you can tell, it's already been really well loved.
This Mac lipstick is a 'Frost' type, and what that does is basically give off some moisture and a slight shimmer to the overall colour. It's not glittery or really shiny, it's just the perfect blend of matte and gloss. Because of that slight sparkly/shimmer it has to it, when the light hits your lips it looks absolutely fabulous. A simple way to describe Angel, is that it's basically your own lips, but better.
As you can probably tell by the way it's worn down a little bit, I've been constantly non-stop wearing this beauty, who wouldn't?! In all honesty, I think it suits the majority of people, it's so easy to wear and adaptable for both night and day. However, the only down side to this, would be that after a few hours you would have to re-apply it, but that's the same with many other lipsticks out there. On the up side, it's so moisturizing, and doesn't dry up on my lips which is always a good sign. I'm also really loving the pigmentation of this product, the first swipe of it is really sheer, but you can actually build it up to the amount you want.
Below are just a few swatches of what Angel actually looks like on the skin. For some weird reason my hand looks really weird and discoloured! Not sure why, as it doesn't in reality! So just ignore that ;)
But as you can see, as I mentioned earlier it's the perfect mixture of a gloss and matte finish, that little shimmer really makes it. You can buy Angel from your local Mac counter in Debenhams or Harvey Nichols for £15. I would rate this product 4 out of 5. I would definitely recommend and I would re-purchase as I've been using it as an everyday lipstick.
What do you guys think to Mac's Angel Lipstick?
Do you love it as much as I do? Or do you even loathe it?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
