After a particularly disappointing attempt to find the lip product for me at the drug store recently, I finally decided enough was enough, bit the bullet and went to Mac. I came out with 2 cream sheen shades - modesty and fanfare. Fanfare is my preference of the two as it adds a bit more colour to my face. Brightens everything up a bit! It's just a really, really pretty pink - I must be quite warm toned as the more blue based pinks just don't seem to work for me but this really does. Great for everyday. I tried on 'please me' which is apparently the matte version of this and I found it way too obvious I didn't like it at all as an everyday lipstick. I also found it really hard to apply. I love the finish on both my cream sheen colours and I find them very comfortable to wear, especially compared with my drug store disasters! I reckon they last about 2 hours, if you don't eat in that time! But they smell so good and I enjoy reapplying them so the comfort is worth the need to reapply for me personally. I have no other formulas to compare it to but I think cream sheen will probably be the one for me as someone with quite dry lips. These are not the colours all the bloggers rave about, but I'm an office girl and if I'm gonna spend ¬£15.50 on a lipstick I want it to be one I can pick up any day of the week! I must have tried on about 8 different shades and most of the ones that have a lot of hype around them just plain didn't suit me - I'm taking to you Creme cup and velvet teddy!! Lipstick is such a personal thing. So go in store - swatch them - try them on - and definitely give some unsung heroes a try! I'm definitely a Mac lipstick convert I'm already researching what one to get next

This paired with Milani Luminoso blush and L'oreal Infallible Amber Rush is sooo pretty and soft! Perfect for daytime use or to add a touch color to your face. When this lipstick reached half way down it began to melt and now it wants to fall off its holder :( I didn't leave it anywhere in the sun I'm sure so the only other thing I can think of is that this is happening because of its semi-soft very creamy texture. I possibly would still repurchase because this is the softest girliest pink I like. I don't go for girly looks very often but Fanfare is just too cute to pass up.

First of all, I bought MAC Faux and I loveee it. But for my medium asian skin, Faux is too nude, the color is too light and makes my face look ordinary. But Fanfare is just great. I love the pink color with yellow undertone. It makes my face look brighter and fresher. It is not the very bright pink like Pink Nouveau or Flamingo, or St. Germaine, or Candy Yum Yum.It's like the lighter pink version of Girl About Town. It's like Faux, but with deeper pink, and definitely not a nude one. I love love love it. The price is acceptable, the packaging is so elegant (as expected of MAC), very moisturizing (because it is Cremesheen), and it's just so making your face look more alive.

This is my number one wear-to-work lipstick! It's a subtle and gorgeous mid-toned pink that looks natural without being a nude. It provides a nice subtle pop of color, while looking simultaneously sophisticated and girly. It has a good wear time (though it does require touch-ups after coffee, meals, etc) and the formula is not too drying. It goes perfectly with multiple different types of makeup looks and outfits. Now that I finally have it, I can't believe I put off purchasing for long because "did I really need another pink lipstick?" Yes, apparently I did!

I just LOVE this lipstick! It was one I had initially overlooked as there isn't too much hype about it. I'm so glad I tried it! It is perfect for the day or night, in the office or out and about. I own 18 MAC lipsticks and this is in my top favourite 5 - the other favourites being Mehr, Cosmo, Velvet Teddy and Viva Glam V. This one is so versatile and although amplified creme is my favourite finish, I quite like the the finish of his lipstick. This lipstick really deserves more recognition! Always try before you buy and don't just purchase the shades with the hype surrounding them. The shades I have discovered on my own (with the exception of Velvet Teddy) suit me much better than the ones the bloggers rave about like Rebel or Syrup - two lipsticks that really do nothing for me! Try Fanfare, you won't regret it!

This was my first Mac Lipstick and it left me very happy and I didn't think of it as a waste of money. It's definitely one of my favourites as its so creamy and pigmented, I find that it lasts a very long time on your lips and doesn't dry them out at all. I don't need to apply lip balm underneath this as its so moisturising already and glides on very smoothly. I like my lips either glossy or matte, I prefer how it looks that way instead of leaving these types of lipsticks alone. To make mine matte I gently cover the lipstick applied with a tissue and blot it with some loose powder on a brush over the tissue. It transfers the powder making the lipstick matte but keeping it still moisturising. I rather do that instead of getting matte lipsticks because they're usually very drying. :)

This color is nothing short of amazing. It's pretty bright and will catch everyone's attention. I have medium skin tone and this color is so flattering. Reminds me of a better version of NYX tea rose, which was my favorite until finding this. Mac's formula is far better.

I'm in love with fanfare! Hands down, my all time HG. It suits my skintone, it's make my skin brighter and I got tons of compliment wearing this baby. It ends up with pink with little bit of glossy finish. I don't like matte so I love the cremesheen for mac. Besides fanfare, I also have cosmo and ravishing. They are lovely too, but I just falling in love with fanfare more

I'm not usually one for pink lipstick, but Fanfare has totally changed that. It's a medium coral-pink cream that suits my NC25-30 skintone beautifully. I like the Cremesheens a lotóit's probably my favorite MAC lipstick formulation as it has good lasting power, excellent pigmentation, and has just the right amount of creaminess. Will buy this forever!

I absolutely love love love this lipstick. I'm currently around Nc40 and this is my go to pink lipstick. The thing is, in the tube it looks dark coral. But on my brownish lips I comes out as one of the most flattering dark pink colour with a hint of coral. It's highly pigmented and applies smoothly, and the cremesheen finish is great, just apply a smidge of balm first to combat dryness. It wears off evenly which is always a plus. Highly recommend this.
