I received a parcel in the post last week and opening it , I felt quite excited .
There is a reason for being so excited , it was MAC , in there was a lipstick which I had been wanting to try but not yet braved myself to give a go.
Girl About Town
I seem to have heard a lot of recommendations on getting this lippy , but looking at swatches on the web , it looked a little bold and deep pink for my usual liking.
Determined to give it a try , I opened it up and applied it to my lips in an honourable way , I do not know why I seem to take care with applying lipstick, but when it comes to lipsticks such as MAC , I tend to swipe it smoothly , gently and almost sensually , taking care not to over use it .
Strange I know but I think I am just a great fan .
Cost - £15.50
Can be bought from - MAC Cosmetics website
For me using bold colours on the lips is for fun and those special occasions and with this shade it seems , I feel a little braver bearing my all in this on my outings .
What MAC say about the Girl About Town -
MAC describes “Girl About Town “as Blue Based Fuchsia with Amplified Cream finish.
My thoughts on the Girl About Town -
Girl About Town really is a true blue - based fuchsia tone almost with a tint of purple in there .
I think I am quite fair skinned and was surprised that this suited me to be honest .
The packaging for this is the same bullet style as the regular line , vanilla scented like all MAC lipsticks and twist up lipstick with that click for security in closing.
This amplified lipstick is very creamy and glides on my lips so smoothly, leaving a lovely semi- matte look .
I do not find that it nags on dry skin at all so this is going to be perfect even in winter for me.
I have found that this lipstick has amazing staying power, especially compaired to the creme cup , myth and angel shades I have found myself wearing a lot lately .
I find it leaves a stain once it has settled on the skin as well, meaning this is a long lasting shade. In fact this has lasted all day on my lips , a first I have to admit for any lipstick.
I am loving this shade. The amazing pigmentation of Girl About Town leaves a fabulous opaque look on the lips with an amazing coverage making my lips look a little fuller than normal . (I need the help with that top lip definition and this does the job ).
I will be wearing this day and night , this seems to be one of those shades that are although bold, seem pretty for wearing through out the day , it will definitely be taken away with me in my beauty bag for my wedding anniversary next month .
I find myself re applying lipsticks often but with this , just one swipe on the lips and I feel confident the colour will stay . This is going to last me a while for sure , I think I have found my new bold lipstick .
Do you like this shade, have you tried it?
I would totally recommend it if you have not yet.
