MAC | Selfridges – £15.50 I never usually talk about make up on my blog, but I thought I had to fill you all in on the lipstick I’ve been wearing daily since I bought it! The ‘true dark red’ shade from the much anticipated Marilyn Monroe collection by MAC named ‘Charmed I’m Sure’. I absolutely love this lipstick. It provides an opaque coverage after one swipe and is very pigmented, so much so that it actually does stain my lips a little bit! If you go wrong when applying, I do recommend you have a make up wipe ready purely for this reason. It’s probably a good idea to use a lip liner to prevent any bleeding as well. Personally, I find that the matte finish is not drying on my lips at all; however there is slight pulling when I apply it at first, although that isn’t something that really bothers me all that much. Everyone has had their say on the packaging but I personally am not a big fan. Of all the images of Marilyn to use, the one on the box isn’t as flattering as many others and I’m not sure of it, really. I would have preferred to maybe have just seen her signature in the red perhaps, keeping it quite simple! If I’m not mistaken, Charmed I’m Sure is sold out online at the moment (boo!), but is available in store, as I had to get my friend Louise to go get it for me in the Carnaby St branch of MAC last week! You can also purchase the new collection from Selfridges (as I have linked above). I’ve heard a lot of good things about all the lipsticks in the collection, so I don’t think you would be wasting that £15.50, even though it is quite pricey. Hardly the most amazing review but I love this lipstick and you can see me wearing it here! Do let me know your thoughts on it. 🙂 I’ll be back to my usual outfit posts this week, woo! I do hope you’re all having a lovely Wednesday.
