I’m a sucker for a Mac lipstick, and even more so for anything Disney. So… when Mac released the Maleficent collection that had been hugely anticipated by pretty much everyone, I NEEDED THE LIP STICK. Of course, I missed grabbing my mitts on it online, and didn’t seem to get a chance to get to Debenhams in Chester. We ended up going to the Trafford Centre, which just happens to be one of my favourite places. First stop, Selfridges Mac counter which is the BIGGEST beauty counter ever, I could have done with a Sat Nav to navigate my way through the counter, it’s staff, and the annoying girls wanting to speak to them. I however, found they had the lipstick in stock, had a party in my head and then stood directly in front of a member of staff faffing around at the desk in an attempt to get her attention. It worked, she grabbed the lipstick for me, placed it in that beautiful yellow Selfridges bag, I paid and I was one happy little blogger.
Now, the packaging isn’t as mesmerising at that of the Alluring Aquatic collection, but I like that it’s simple, pretty dark and even mysterious which I think it rather fitting.
The shade is called True Loves Kiss which I love. It is describe as a clean bright red, and as I’m useless when it comes to describing colours, theres a picture of me wearing it below. I’d say it’s a medium dark red, which I love!
I don’t find it drying on the lips, it applied smoothly with no tugging on the lips, and like with most Mac lipstick, it lasted a good while. Overall, I’m happy I managed to get my hands on it, and if you need another red lipstick in your life (you can never have too many), you need this!
Did you pick up anything from the Maleficent collection?
