Today I am bringing you my Cherry Culture haul. I was so nervous and didn’t know if this order would ever come because I waited over a month for the goods to arrive but they all arrived safe and sound! It’s all NYX cause I’m NYX obsessed atm except one Milani lip product – fruit punch (heard so many bbloggers rave about it so I had to try it!).
So its Monday morning so I thought I would share with you my MOTD/FOTD. I don’t usually wear makeup to work but I have started to wear makeup more recently cause I have so much makeup I need to use up before! So today I created a white/silver and pink smokey eye look with a corally/pink lip.
So today I am reviewing M.A.C’s Saint Germain Lipstick. Now this is the first M.A.C product I have ever purchased and the only one I own to this day. I had heard so many good things and when I tried it on at the shops I simply couldn’t resist not buying it. In Australia M.A.C is ridiculously expensive so this baby cost me a steep $36 which is the most I have ever paid for a lip product but I don’t regret it at all I love this lipstick!
(As you can tell I use this a lot as there’s not much left! This is is on my lips)
It’s a bubble gum pink which is bright and fun! For me this is my perfect clubbing lipstick cause it super bright and it has great staying power. It’s one of M.A.C’s amplified cream lipsticks which means it build able which I love about it, so I can dab a bit on if I want to wear it to work or layer it thick to get a brighter pink.
(please not this is not my image just one I found from the net which shows the colour better)
In terms of packaging M.A.C does an amazing job so no complaints in that department. I love how its vanilla scented, smells soo yummy! Saint Germain is definitely one of those colours though that you will either love or hate and I just happened to love it. It goes with my skin tone and doesn’t make my teeth look yellow which is what happens to a lot of other people who use this product so that’s good. I will without a doubt repurchase this product but I will wait until I go to USA in Feb as I can pick it up for $15US which is less than half of what we Aussies pay!
Overall this is a great lipstick with awesome pigmentation, a super creamy texture and great long lasting power!
(And it matches me top! Boy do I have my shit together today or what! :P )
Have you guys tried this lipstick or what is your favourite lipstick from M.A.C? Any suggestions of lipsticks I should pick up for when I go to America?
Australis has an awesome new lip product out at the moment called Velourlips Matte Lip Creams. This product has the best colour payout ever! Its basically a liquid lipstick which leaves a soft matte finish.
There are 5 shades available, PA-REE (nude), NY-CEE (red) and MAL-I-BOO (neon pink), TOK-I-O (purple), RIO-D (coral).
I only bought MAL-I-BOO to test out but I will definitely be going back for more :).
The colour is amazing, its that perfect bright pink lip! I find it makes my teeth look extra white as well. I just love it :)
Being a matte lip product they are a bit dry feeling. But on the flip side the colour is going to stay over there evenly and not slide around your lips. for MAL-I-BOO I applied 2 coats so I did have to build it up to a colour I was happy with but its still wearable with only 1 cost.
In my opinion, they are the perfect night out lip colour as you don’t have to worry that the colour will transfer onto a glass or move around on your lips. The bad thing about that was that I did need to use Lush’s lip scrub to remove the product. So it did get a bit messy in the end, but totally worth it.
Will definately be going back to purchase the rest of the range :)
Here is me wearing the amazing product :)
Have your tried out this amazing product? Leave me your thoughts :)
This is just a quick face of the night (FOTN) from Saturday night that I just wanted to share with you quickly. For eyes I used ‘Suspect’ from the Naked 2 palette on my Sigma eyeshadow brush. The face was Napoleon foundation stick in look 2 (great full coverage makeup for a night out clubbing), the lips were Saint Germain by MAC and lashes were Wispies by Creme.
Let me know if you like this look and want me to post more similar ones in the future :)
