M Is For MAC Lipstick #Syrup

Yes, I am a MAC lipstick girl and Syrup is one of my all time favourites. I've first seen it in one of the videos on YouTube and it looked so gorgeous on the girl (I can't remember who it was) that I went straight to my local MAC counter and got it. And let me tell you, it was exactly what I was expecting. Syrup is in the Lustre collection which is the one I go for the most. I would describe it as a neutral mauve pink colour, once applied it looks like my lips but better if that makes sense. It's a perfect shade for a neutral, everyday eye look but it works well for both, day and night. The texture of this lipstick is soft and smooth which makes it extremely easy to apply, and the pigmentation is pretty good too. Its got a glossy finish but it's not sticky like a lot of other glossy lip products are. It's also moisturising and doesn't settle into fine lines or dries out my lips throughout the day. However, if your lips are on the dry side like mine you mind need to put lip balm on first just in case. It's fairly long-lasting, I need to re-apply every couple of hours but that doesn't really bother me. The price is reasonable - £15, it's pretty much in-between drugstore and high-end price range. I would definitely recommend this lipstick, especially for this time of year as well.
