Lipstick Loveliness of the Week – MAC Stone.

Mac Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Stone – £15.50.

I have loved Stone as a lip liner for as long as I can remember so when MAC Cosmetics decided to introduce the new matte lip collection and include Stone as a lipstick in it’s own right, I did a little squeal of excitement. I got my backside up out of bed, got the laptop out and logged straight on to the MAC website where I bagged not only Stone, but the much coveted Whirl as well. Why the hell not eh? Stone is described by MAC as a ‘muted greyish taupe‘ and it is exactly that. I have read on a number of reviews that Stone leans more towards the warm side but I found it to be a little cool on my lips. It appeared to be more of a medium brown in the bullet but I found that it defintely leant a bit more towards grey once applied and I absolutely adore the colour. I was worried at first that it might not match my skintone but I need not have worried, I adored the shade even more once I was wearing it. It did taking some getting used to though as it is quite different to the majority of lip colours I wear. The colour payout was phenominal which is pretty standard with the majority of MAC’s lipsticks which is why I am hoarding quite the collection. Teamed with the Stone lip liner, the lipstick had some incredible staying power to accompany the colour – it lasted on my lips for around 5 hours before settling in to a nice stain. I did find the finish to be more semi-matte than fully matte but in my opinion that is a bonus if anything, as it wasn’t as drying as the usual matte formula from MAC. I would still definitely recommend a fair bit of lip preparation before hand to get a nice even finish – get the lip scrub and lip balm at the ready folks! If your looking for a gorgeous shade for everyday wear this Autumn/Winter then I think Stone is definitely worth a swatch or two. It is a beautiful colour.

Do you think Stone deserves a place in your make up arsenal throughout the colder months?
