I finally bought my first MAC lipsticks.
For a total lipstick junkie, it was crazy that I had never even been in a MAC store. When Scott and I went, he was like, “You really haven’t been in here before? This is so you.”
I knew exactly what shades I wanted to try on, and headed in a few weeks ago despite my fears of an unhelpful artist (I read so many horror stories on Reddit before heading to my local Domain Austin shop.) I tried on Cyber, Rebel, Russian Red, Ruby Woo, Candy Yum Yum, and St. Germaine.
I ended up loving Cyber (left), Russian Red (middle), and Candy Yum Yum (right). Scott actually thought that I had made up the name Candy Yum Yum, since it sounds like something I would say anyway.
Candy Yum Yum is my favorite of the bunch, since it’s an obnoxious neon hot pink.
All three of the lipsticks apply amazingly and last all night. It is such a serious upgrade from Revlon and my beloved NYX lipsticks that it’s hard to go back. With my old Wet N Wild or drugstore lipsticks, I would certainly never walk out of a restaurant post-meal with lipstick still in place. I wore Cyber to my favorite burger place and that dark, vampy color stayed put the whole time!
Russian Red, pictured below, is just amazing too. It’s a gorgeous application and glam color, although it’s even wearable in the daytime. It reminds me of Gwen Stefani.
