Hello my dears! I am back! After such a long time, I’ve been busy and it has been raining non stop here so I couldn’t take photos.
Anyway, I’ve never tried MAC before, for some reason I just didn’t buy any of their products but I do know that everyone raves about them. My sister asked me if I wanted to have her friend buy some in the US so I said why not and of course, me being me, I just had to have a bright color for my first MAC lipstick.
Onto the review.
From their website:
Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street…or at sea! Packaged in blue and white stripes, it’s a match to everything Hey, Sailor! Limited edition.
Can I just say how pretty the packaging is? I really like the blue and white stripes.
So I got the shade Sail La Vie which is a vibrant red-orange shade that’s perfect for summer or for a pop of color.This is a satin finish and I find it to be creamy, long lasting, and very pigmented and it applies like a dream! I also really like it because it doesn’t have shimmer. (I’m not a fan of shimmery lipsticks).
Let me tell you, the first time I tried it, it ruined all other lipsticks for me, like I said, it applies like a dream!
Scent wise, it smells like your typical lipstick but it’s not too strong.
Without and with Sail La Vie.
As you can see, my lips are deathly pale, that’s why I prefer brighter colors on my lips as opposed to nudes (though I really like them!)
I have no photo of my full face with the lipstick because I’m not going out today and it’s pointless to wear makeup at home, plus I haven’t gotten any sleep yet, I was up all night playing Tekken at a friend’s house.
- Great product
- Long lasting
- Applies easily
- Pretty packaging
- You get your money’s worth
Sadly, Hey, Sailor! is a summer collection and the products are limited edition, but I would definitely buy some more MAC products just because this lipstick really wowed me.
So I had dinner with my friends last night, and before we all went to my friend’s place, us girls decided to do a little shopping at Etude House. We didn’t have much time because the mall was already closing.
I got an eyebrow brush, Surprise Essence Concealer, Dear Darling Tint and 55 Kissful Tint Chou. I also got a freebie pencil for reaching a certain amount on my purchase.
I’m so annoyed that I grabbed the wrong shade of the Kissful Tint Chou, I was supposed to get #1 but I grabbed #4 by accident!I realized it AFTER I opened the lip tint. It’s a pretty shade, but I already have it.
I’ll probably review the concealer and dear darling tint when I have time since I haven’t tried it before.
Hope everybody’s doing well!
