It's no surprise that MAC is one of my favourite brands. However, I feel that in regards to liquid lipsticks, MAC were a bit late to the game. They finally released their own line of liquid lipsticks in January of this year. Seeing as I saw a lot of mixed reviews of these on Youtube and on other blogger sites, I admit I was a bit skeptical on whether I would take the plunge and buy them.
Last week, I stumbled across a MAC counter, and ignoring the voices in my heart to keep walking away, I couldn't resist and I ended up walking away with one of these babies in Feels so Grand. It is a deep true red, which I think would suit a great variety of skintones. I looooove the colour.
Let's just first start off with packaging... although I feel that MAC could have done much better, I still appreciate the fact that they wanted to keep the same style as with their usual lipsticks (the bullet cap). And, honestly I think it's growing on me.
The pigmentation of this liquid lipstick is to die for and I also love its finish. It applied like a dream, and with just one swipe, it was very opaque. Even though it's matte, it's not sticky to the touch and it dries fairly quick. The daw foot applicator gives you a lot of control, allowing for a great and precise application. Although it is matte, it will still feel comfortable on the lips and not too drying. The staying power is pretty good as well, keeping in mind that you might have to reapply after food (especially the greasy kind) and drink.
What I wasn't too keen on was the reapplication of it. There were times when throughout the day, I had to touch up especially on the centre of the lip (this is pretty normal for me) but on so doing, it seemed to crumble on my lips, making them look extremely dry. Therefore in the case that you have to reapply, I would suggest taking it all off using a makeup remover wipe and starting over again.
So, would I suggest buying it? If you're willing to go to the trouble in order to reapply, then I would definitely recommend this product. Personally, I like to leave this for days when I know that I will only be out for a few hours, therefore not having to touch up at all (because I'm super lazy :P)
