Good morning everyone! If it’s not morning where you are, then have a happy whatever-time-of-day-it-is. Gather ’round so we can discuss MAC’s Magic of the Night lipsticks!
I only picked up 2 shades of the 4 in this collection, but there’s a good reason! I counted, and I already own 381,474 hot pink and deep plum lipsticks (barely an exaggeration ?). The two I purchased were Please Me and Evening Rendezvous, a soft peachy pink and a mid-tone neutral purple.
Purples have been one of my favorite lip colors for awhile. They’re different enough to give your look an edge, but wearable enough for almost any occasion. Evening Rendezvous is particularly pretty, because the neutrality of the shade gives it the ability to be worn with cool and warm eye looks. It’s very smooth and pigmented, and the finish is more satin than matte to me.
Please Me is a gorgeous warm pink that is so beautiful with gold or bronze eyes. It’s a little more sheer than I expected, but still a great contrast to all the cool pinks and nudes on the market lately.
This morning, I’ll be picking up some things from the Ellie Goulding collection, so watch out for more reviews coming soon!
