MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Whirl – £15.5o.
Another week, another lipstick… Ahh the life of a lipstick hoarder, more lipstick than sense. Now we all know this one, don’t we? Oh yes! The lip pencil turned lipstick that took the world by storm once Kylie Jenner stepped out with her plump pink-brown pout and named it as her shade of choice. Ahh, Whirl. It was released as a lipstick earlier this year along with Stone (another lip pencil turned lipstick) as part of MAC Cosmetics ‘The Matte Lip’ collection and it has been a much welcome addition to my lipstick collection. I bloody love it. Whirl is described by MAC as a ‘dirty rose’ and it is definitely a dark, slightly brown tinged rose shade and it is right up my street. I live for these kinda lip colours y’know. I did own the original lip pencil first and boy, that took me forever to track down but I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the matching lipstick. It is a rich, fully opaque colour that glides effortlessly and evenly across the lips without any tug or pull. It wore really well for at least four and a half hours. Like most matte lipsticks from MAC, the formula can be slightly drying and sadly this lip shade is a little on the dry side. I would definitely recommend some lip balm and lip scrub pre-application to get the best looking lips. Whirl has quicky become my go to shade for daytime wear during this time of year – it is a truly beautiful colour that would look great against any skintone.
Did you instantly rush to buy Whirl after the Kylie Jenner frenzy too?
