MAC Syrup Lipstick






Choosing a MAC lipstick - one of life's hardest decisions. I'm sure you'll feel my pain when I tell you how many hours I spent watching YouTube videos and reading blogs when choosing my 5th MAC Lipstick. When you're spending £15.50 on a lipstick, you've gotta make sure it's one you'll get a lot of wear out of. My other 4 lipsticks from MAC are all cremesheen formulas, so I knew this time I wanted to branch out and try a different finish to see how I got on. I took to the interweb and after two of my favourite bloggers/youtubers (Lily Pebbles & Essie Button) both spoke of their love for Syrup, I decided it needed to be mine. 

MAC's Syrup is a Lustre formula, which means it's sheer with a glossy finish. I find it really moist on the lips and not uncomfortable in the slightest. MAC describe this lipstick as a cloudy pink, but I'd say it definitely has a mauve/berry undertone to it aswell. This is definitely one of those 'my lips but better' shades and I can see why it's so popular. It's perfect for everyday and gives my lips that little bit of something with added sheen without being in your face. It feels ultra moist and hydrating on the lips, but as it's a Lustre, it's not as pigmented as other MAC lippies and doesn't have the longest wear time (1-2 hours max). It can be built up for a more intense look if needed and it doesn't fade in patches like some lipsticks can so the wear time isn't a deal breaker for me.

If you're in the process of searching for a new MAC lippie and you love the natural glossy pinky-berry look, then look no further. It should suit most skintones and think it's one everyone should have in their collection.

  17. Haha I have to agree it can be so hard to choose a MAC lipstick, but this looks gorgeous :) My only gripe with Lustres is that the lack pigmentation which means I’m always re-applying :( Fab review hun!

  19. I've been so desperate to try a mac lipstick, but it's too overwhelming as they're many gorgeous lipsticks available! If I was to get one, I'd want one I could wear regularly which isn't too bold, but is noticeable at the same time.. Maybe I'm picky with lipsticks?! Anyway, I've not heard too much on this lipstick. Syrup, such a cute name! The swatch is gorgeous, it looks so natural, like a natural lip colour but better? Such a great review, thank you for sharing this gorgeous lipstick! x
