So I, like every other hot blooded female, went into Mac recently hoping that my local store would be one of the very few that had the infamous 'Velvet Teddy' shade that will turn us all into Kylie Jenner by applying a swoop of it onto our lips. Of course, it was sold out and will be for months. However the assistant did introudce me to my new love...
Meet the satin finish beaut that is, Spirit.
I knew I wanted a brown warm toned shade if Velvet Teddy was sold out and when she pointed me towards this one it was love at first sight. This might sound dramatic but come on girls it's a Mac lipstick, it happens! She paired it with both Stone and Chestnut lip pencils and I went for Stone, which to be honest I kind of regret but hey, it's an excuse to go back and purchase Chestnut!
The lasting power of this lipstick is one of the best I've tried and the colour stays true all day which is something that can't be said for other Mac shades I've tried such as Rebel and Cyber.
I feel this is the perfect 90's throwback shade and if you like me, were too young and missed out on the makeup looks of the 90's, how lucky are we that we get to recreate them 10 years later! Due to the satin finish of this product it doesn't dry out my lips in the slightest, however I would recommend applying some lip conditioner before hand as it can show up any dry patches and let's face it, that just isn't pretty!
As always, this lippy was €18.50 and if you purchase don't forget to keep the packaging for back to mac!
Until next time girlies, LolaRose xx
