MAC Lovelorn lipstick

Hi loves,
So I completely forgot I even had this lipstick... and I've just remembered how much I love it! I found it all sad and lonely at the bottom of a handbag which was shoved in a drawer somewhere. Don't you love finding treasures in handbags you haven't used in a while?! Anyways, thought I'd just do a little swatch type of post for you guys :)

As you can see, it's a Lustre finish - which I love. Lustre's are really moisturising and go on so smoothly, plus you don't need a gloss because they all give a lovely sheen. It's a pretty bright pink, which wears well. I love lipsticks that when they've worn off a bit, they leave a slight stain... which this does really well.

This is what it looks like when it's first applied, quite glossy and it's a shade of pink that's really going to suit everyone. The MAC website describe is as an 'emotive blue pink' which I think it pretty spot on... blue tones are great because they make your teeth look whiter.

This is the lipstick after a couple hours of wear - plus drinking and eating! Obviously the gloss has faded, and the colour has changed a bit... but it settles into a really nice darker pink. This lipstick gets a thumbs up from me... as do all of my MAC lipsticks, I'm yet to find a bad one! This used to be available for £12.50, but MAC have put their prices up to £13.50... come on MAC that's a bit silly isn't it?
