Mac Speed Dial Lipstick

Tuesday, 24 September 2013


I have always been intrigued by M.A.C products. With the great reviews, huge variation of products, and the amazing colour range, I have always wanted to try out some of their make-up. But, the high prices always had me thinking to myself, 'Do I really want to spend £15 on a lipstick?' and 'Is it really worth it?', but in the summer of 2013 I finally caved in and bought my first ever Mac Product. A lipstick! As you know if you read my London Visit and Haul post I visited London for the first time ever, and it was one of the most incredible places I have been in the UK. The buildings and the sights were amazing, but most of all I enjoyed the shopping - who doesn't? 

I visited the M.A.C store in Covent Garden and I was amazed by all of the make up, I just wanted to purchase everything. I probably spent nearly 25 minutes swatching lipsticks over my hands repetitively to decide on which colour I wanted to purchase - which was every single on of them, but 7 wet wipes later I finally decided on which colour I was purchasing. I chose 'Speed Dial'. You may be wondering why I left this post so late, but I was waiting to thoroughly test out this lipstick first before reviewing to give you my honest opinion. 

Speed Dial is a gorgeous pink colour, that is not to bright, but not too subtle. It looks lovely with any outfit or any make up look. It is perfect for anytime of the year, even in the colder months. This lipstick has a gorgeous scent of cocoa butter, and it extremely kind to the lips. By kind, I mean extremely nourishing and moisturizing. The lipstick cares for your lips, but also looks fabulous on them. The lasting wear for this lipstick is around 3/4 hour mark, then all you need is a quick dab and your done. Perfect if you are rushing around on a busy day and don't get a chance to check over your make-up. 

Overall, M.A.C lipsticks are defiantly worth their money if you are looking for a brilliant, long lasting lipstick which are offered in various colours. And they are also worth their money if you just want to be a bit naughty with your bank and indulge yourself. If you have been looking at M.A.C lipsticks but have been redundant to purchase one, Just Do It! (Good old quote from Nike there). I promise you, you will not be 100% disappointed with your purchase, you will 100% adore it!
