Mac Feel My Pulse £15.50
I saw this and told myself it'd never suit me - So of course, I went ahead and swatched it onto the back of my hand. It looked less scary like this, a little more pink! As I applied it to my lips, I slowly fell for it. There is definitely space on my dressing table for a violet lipstick.
Thats how I'd describe it, A violet magenta shade with a slightly blue undertone of shimmer, almost similar to a frost lipstick, though this is a cremesheen. This shade makes a welcome change to pink and coral, and I think will look amazing alongside a tan (gradual tanner in progress)! It does apply more pink than it appears in the bullet, so its much more wearable than first impressions might give - I love it!
I'm not usually too fussed about Macs new collections - Mainly because there seems to be a new one every other week, though if I get pulled in its usually because of the packaging, oops! I recently had a clear out, and sold a tonne of stuff on eBay (send with Parcelforce if you want to save money by the way), so decided to be frivolous and try some new bits. The packaging on this lipstick is a boring, but sultry bronze, with a Nars-like velvet finish which is nice although didn't exactly grab my attention initially. Now I'm wishing I swatched the others too!
I didn't realise it'd cost more than a usual lipstick though, this cost £15.50 and I didn't find out until I got to the till. Its out of stock everywhere online, though there were loads of stock in my local Debenhams.
Have you tried anything from this range?
