MAC lipstick in Syrup

07. maj 2014


Hello my lovelies! Today I have another lipstick review for you... As you may have seen, there's been a lot of lipsticks featured on my blog lately - I went a bit lipstick crazy in the past couple of months. :) Anyhew... thanks to Aida (Lippie Hippie) I now own not one but four MAC lipsticks (thank you hunnie)! These are my first MAC products, I've never owned anything from this brand before, so you can imagine my excitement...





Aida is currently in Lisbon (enjoying the beach and warm weather, I hope) and they happen to have Sephora there (I really don't know why someone isn't building/opening one in our country as we speak), so she has access to wonderful makeup brands I'd die to get my hands on (well, maybe not die - kill someone perhaps? just kidding...). She came home for the Easter holidays and brought me a bunch of goodies along with her. I asked her to bring me two MAC lipsticks, but in the end I got four - she bought one for me as a birthday gift and grabbed the other one, because well... I think her words were: 'I couldn't leave it in the store, it had to come home with me'... and boy am I glad she did that. I absolutely love all four of them! Anyhew... Syrup was the one she bought me as a present for my birthday and it's the one I'll be talking about today.







At first I didn't really know what to expect from MAC lipsticks - I've heard that they can be a bit drying yet long lasting. I'm really not a fan of that, I much prefer moisturizing, creamy lipsticks that just need to be re-applied. When I applied Syrup on my lips it felt wonderful - it glided on smoothly, felt comfortable, almost creamy and even though I had a cold and my lips were a bit chapped, it didn't seem to stick to the dry 'patches' or 'enhance' them in any way. I was quite impressed... :)

The shade is also lovely. It's a luster so it has a lovely sheen to it and isn't as pigmented (as cremesheens for example), but isn't sheer at all. MAC describes this shade as a cloudy pink but I would call it a mauve. A gorgeous, everyday shade. Love it! I've seen this shade on Tanya Burr's channel quite a while ago and recently on Essie's (essiebutton) as well. I've lost count of how many times I've watched her video 'Top 5 MAC lipsticks' - it's because of her and her video that I've chosen the shades I did and I love them all, so thank you Essie! :D







I'm really happy with this lipstick - both the formula and the shade. I now own 4 gorgeous lipsticks from MAC, but I'm already lusting after some new ones, See Sheer being first on my wishlist. :) At 19 € they are a bit pricy but considering the shade range and the quality I think they are definitely worth it.


What do you think of this shade? Own any MAC lipsticks, which is your favorite?

  4. Tale odtenek je pa tudi na moji WL :) Drugače pa se meni njihove šminke tudi ne zdijo izsušujoče, niti tiste z matte finišom, ki jih marsikatera kritizira :)

    1. Ja, res lepo od Aide! <3 In ja, tudi jaz bi še šmink, ostalo me niti ne mika - senčke so predrage za to kvaliteto, pudri in korektorji mi ne dišijo od njih, mogoče kakšen blush, highlighter, to bi pa tudi bilo vse. :D
