Beauty | Mac Mocha Lipstick.

 A lipstick for true coffee lovers!! After sampling a few brown toned lipsticks over the festive season, I just so happened to fall into my local Mac store, picking up this satin lippie along the way... Well there's worse things that could happen, right? All jokes aside, I'd wanted to treat myself after working every hour under the sun over Christmas time, and I thought what better way than with a new Mac lipstick! Woop!

I've only just had my eyes opened really to brown toned lipsticks - I don't know why it's taken me 25 years to try them - Maybe I was a scaredypants, who knows, but i've found them and I bloody love them, there's no looking back for me now! Mocha seemed like the perfect shade for me to go for as it's predominantly brown toned, however it also has a slight hint of a peachy pink to it meaning it's a really wearable shade. I'm quite pale (wahh) and I think it suits my skin tone well, however I think this would look just as lovely on olive or darker skin, it's such a versatile shade.
As with all Mac lipsticks, this satin finish is a force to be reckoned with. The product is creamy & feels nourishing on the lips, and not in any way drying. Sometimes with more matte finished lip products they can be difficult and harsh to apply, but this one goes on with one quick swish. The pigmentation on Mocha is amazing, you get a really decent colour coverage with one swipe of the product. It is however buildable, if you're going for a more dramatic night time look. It's no secret that Mac lipsticks have an incredible staying power & this one is no exception, facing dinner & drinks with absolutely no problem whatsoever! I can't think of a bad word to say about this product! It's going to get some serious wear out of me this year.

I'm loving brown toned lipsticks at the moment & really want to extend my collection, so if you have any faves I'd love to hear them. Pop your answers in the comments below & I'll be sure to check them out.... Now, who's for coffee?

Thanks for reading. Claire.x

  3. I absolutely adore that colour darling! You look stunning (as usual) in that shade! I'm always quite fearful of berry shades and I'm not too sure why, I'm definitely going to try and take a leap of faith soon and give the berry shades a little go, they all look beautiful!

    1. Ohh! Thanks Amie!! :-) Yeah, try something a little different - I bet you won't regret it!! X

  4. I love a good brown lippy, this one comes across a lot lighter than I expect it too though. But I guess if you can build it up you can make it a lot more darker. Do you know if they have any matte shades that are similar to this? I'm not a fan of satin lipsticks at the movement for some reason!x
