Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well and have had a fabulous weekend! I have had quite an exciting weekend as my parents took me out browsing for my 21st Birthday presents! it is still a few months away but heyy it is always good to be prepared haha. It is only 107 days away...not that i am counting or anything haha ;)
MAC has always been a guilty pleasure of mine and have accumulated a nice little collection of lipsticks over the years, i am thinking about posting an updated collection if that is something you would like to see, so pretty please let me know :D my current one is HERE if you would like to take a peek lovelies.
Thought i would show you all yet another lip product i have re-discovered and loving right now. I was first introduced to 'Speak Louder' by a MAC makeup artist when i had my MAC makeover last year for my birthday. It was a shade which was a little outside my comfort zone as i usually opt for more subtle pink shades. Saying that, i absolutely loved how this looked on my lips and got lots of lovely compliments on it so instantly that made me feel so much better! I used to think brighter red-ish shades never suited me but that has completely changed now...especially as one of my all time favourite lipsticks is 'La Favourite' by Chanel!
Speak Louder is described as a 'poppy blue pink' and is a beautiful vibrant shade leading towards a pinky red with subtle blue undertones. It has a Cremesheen formulation which is one of my favourites that MAC offers. It glides on the lips like a dream and feels extremely smooth and creamy on the lips in comparison to Matte formulations which i find can be quite drying on me personally. I also find that Cremesheens last longer and does not dry out my lips or leave that pesky white mark behind when the lipstick starts to fade.
In the bullet it looks completely bright and bold but upon application it does appear to be more of a medium coverage which is easy to work with as you can create the desired shade you want, whether it being a slight tint to the lips of a full on vibrant bold lip combination.
Overall, i am really loving this lipstick right now and i feel it is a perfect shade to rock throughout the summer as it is fun and vibrant. I have just taken a peek through the website and see that the lipsticks have had another price increase...i remember when i purchased my first ever MAC lipstick and they were like £11.50 and now they are £15! Wowza...the price we pay for our makeup goodies haha.
Hope you all enjoyed this MAC lipstick review! I would love to know what your favourite MAC or non MAC lipstick is and if you have any recommendations for me! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!
