The new Love Me Lipstick collection from Mac come in a range of 24 shades and it has something for everyone. I was instantly drawn to Coffee & Cigs (absolutely obsessed with the name!) and here is why!
Formula, application and pigmentation
This is a weightless argan oil-infused lipstick that delivers an instant hit of powerful colour and all-day moisture in a luxurious satin-soft finish.
It is a very creamy but not overly shiny formula that is super comfortable and nourishing especially during the colder chapped lips weather.
It is easy to apply, the bullet shape is perfect for a precise application.
In one swipe you get an even application and a smooth finish and it smells deliciously sweet.
This comes in the classic shaped bullet we all know Mac for but with a stunning twist.
It has a metallic ombre spray paint effect both on the cap and the bottom of the bullet. The effect is loosely indicative of the colour of the lipstick itself which is helpful picking out the colour you want especially if you’re in a rush.
It is small, sleek, travel friendly and has a luxurious weight to it that I love.
The lid gives a satisfying click when it is securely closed.
Swatch and colour
Coffee and Cigs is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a satin finish and is a permanent lipstick.
I do find that it does react with your lips, changing the tone slightly depending on who is wearing it. It can seem more warmish brown on some while having a more of a rich berry tone with others.
It is flattering on a wide range of skin tones which is great.
I don’t have a lot of lipsticks and I am quite picky, but this formula is beautiful, the colour range is stunning and it is so nourishing which I am obsessed with.
It is pricey at £17.50 a piece but with Mac now widely available in department stores and online you are more likely to find it on offer.
Choose a colour you love and will get a lot of wear out of because the formula is a no-brainer!
