After posting my Urban Decay lipstick review, I got a couple of requests for MAC lipstick reviews. As they're my favourite, I'm very happy to write one up. At the moment I have two: Lady Bug and Ruby Woo. I'm a fan of a good red! I'm a fan of the MAC lipstick packaging. It's simple, nothing too flashy, but it looks attractive with the smooth rounded shape, and I can confirm that they take a good amount of beating without cracking. I always have one of these in my handbag, and I've never had any accidents- The lid has never fallen off and they've not been damaged at all. Inside, the bullet shape is the standard lipstick shape so it's easy to apply. Both lipsticks have the trademark vanilla scent that I've come to expect from MAC. Lady Bug The lustre of Lady Bug means it glides on easy and it leaves my lips feeling smooth and moisturised. The downside of this is that it transfers more easily than other MAC lipsticks. However, I find that MAC lipsticks stay put for ages anyway, so this still lasts a good few hours. When applied, the lustre gives it a subtle sheen and this makes it a great daytime red. It's not too bold, so it would be great if you're new to red lipstick. Lady Bug is my favourite red lipstick ever. It's so versatile- It works for any situation. When in doubt, I reach for the Lady Bug! Ruby Woo The famous Ruby Woo! I bought this online without swatching it in store purely because of the reputation. When it turned up, I was so disappointed that I put it in a drawer and forgot about it for a few months. It is super, super matte. I used to apply lipstick with a lipbrush and this was just not possible. However, when I succumbed to applying it straight out of the bullet, I fell in love. As I said, it's very matte. This makes it a little tricky to apply and it can be drying. However, once it's on, it stays on. For hours. Hours and hours and hours. It's a very bold blue-red so probably not best for retiring types but I absolutely love the vintage feel it gives. I'm so glad I gave it another shot! Right, let's talk about pricing. Yes, they're £15. Yes, they were £14 a few months ago. Look up inflation. I promise you the price is increasing in line with inflation. Unfortunately, they can't stay at £14 forever. Remember when chocolate bars were 30p? Exactly. Personally, I'm very happy to pay £15 for these lipsticks. They are by no means the most expensive lipsticks on the market and it's a very average mid-range price. For the quality of these lipsticks- the colour payoff, the longevity and the durability of the packaging- I think they are well worth it. I'm yet to find a high-street brand that I love as much as these.
