Mac Lipstick in Cut a Caper (Lustre)




Yay I got it!

As you probably know, I included this in a beauty wish list a few weeks back, stating that it was coming soon and I needed to get my hands on it! Well hey presto! Here I am. This is my third or fourth Mac lipstick and i just fall in love with them the more I use them. 

Cut a Caper is from the Heavenly Creatures collection and is sold for around £13.50 which I really don't think is a price to grumble at for a high end lipstick. When you get to the likes of YSL that sell theirs for around £23.50, and you find that Mac is just as good, you take it without question.

The Mac lipsticks always look flawless and creamy and compliment my lips instead of looking dry and lacking beauty. As you may remember, my post a week ago was about the Collection 2000 Apple Blossom lipstick. I am sure you can see there is just no comparison to the finished look of the lipstick. This one just gives off a perfect sheen. It lays on the lips effortlessly and most importantly, it doesn't wash me out.

Speaking of colours however... The photo shows it a little bit more muted than it is. I would say that this is a coral pink/orange type colour and it definitely has some vibrancy too it. Clearly in the sunlight it mellows the colour but in the darker light and shade it can look quite daring and bright. Definitely something I am not use to... but I learned to love very quickly.

It's crazy to me that only earlier this year I was a lipstick newbie and had steered clear of it for a long while because it felt very drying. It seemed that I should have got back into it sooner but now I have I am enjoying discovering all these fabulous shades.

Do you have any recommendations for great lipsticks that you love? Let me know in the comments below. I am back from holiday tomorrow so I shall be able to reply to all of your lovely comments then :)
