Oh Ever Hip, how I wanted to love thee. Now don't get me wrong, I do like ever hip, hence my four star rating, but its definitely not a love-love relationship here. The way I feel for ever hip is the way I feel for cherry jolly ranchers, one of my favorite candies, certainly not my favorite flavor. But twas not the shade of this beauty that set me off my rocker, as you can see its a wonderful creamy peach/pink/coral lipstick, a shade type that almost always sets my heart a-flutter. No, it was the texture of this lipstick that makes me reach my other lipsticks instead. Ever Hip is slightly more tacky on my lips than I anticipated it to be, so I find I don;t wear it as often as I'd like as it exacerbates any dry bits. It's a shame really, I do love the shade to bits and pieces. I wear Ever Hip when my lips have been moisturized and exfoliated, and if I was more inclined to regularly care for my puckers, this baby would have gotten a 5.
I LOVE ever hip. I have two. Definitely the lipstick I'm going to keep reaching for this summer. Hope mac repromotes it next summer so I can pick up more
As everyone else has stated, Ever Hip is a lovely peachy coral. My problem with it is purely with the formula- it's sheer and a little streaky. I find I need to wear a coral lipliner with it to make the color even.
I got this from the second round of release from all the hype and at first I was sorely disappointed! It settled like crazy and it sat in the drawer for months! Then I purchased Oak liner for another lipstick and decided to use Ever Hip over this on a whim and it's the most beautiful nude/peach on my lips. It really brightens up my whole face, makes my teeth whiter and really pulls together a really dark smoky eye look. I recently purchased an Elizabeth Arden primer and no more settling on my fine lines. For ref I'm NC 42 with really pigmented lips and this is the only nudish lip I can pull off so far. The lasting power of this sucks hence only 4 stars.
MAC needs to make this colour permanent. It's a great, fresh, summery color with brings a pop to your look. I love the cremesheen finish, it makes my lips look perfect.
I love this colour for my skintone (NC30). This coral shade is better for me because it's pink/peach toned rather than an orange toned one. Being a creme-sheen, it is very creamy and semi-opaque with two swipes and has a smooth consistency. It's a nice wearable colour for the day-time and has a slight glossy finish. I wished they would include this in their permanent line!
I got this with the Fashion Flower collection, and I really wish I had gotten a backup! It's a light coral/pink color that looks gorgeous on a lot of different skin tones. It's a really versatile color that works with neutral and dramatic looks.
My first ever lipstick from MAC. I will definitely be buying more. I wish mac would make ever hip permanent - it's gorgeous! I was a little concerned that it wouldn't suit me as I have pale skin with cool undertones and I've seen pictures where it looks gorgeous on women with darker skin/warm undertones. But it looks great and really warms up my face. It seems like it could suit most skin tones. I have a feeling I'm going to be living in it this summer, because I'm in love!
EDIT- While playing around with my makeup I discovered a dupe for this- the Topshop cream blush in neon rose, used on lips, is very similar to ever hip in colour (a little darker though) , but obviously not similar in texture as neon rose is cream to powder finish and looks like a stain on the lips. Adding any coral-toned lipgloss on top will make it look really pretty :)
Overall very happy with the lipstick. Got it online on the first day of release with the Fashion Flower collection and lucky I did as this sold out on the UK site that same day! Subtle, pretty colour that is appropriate for work and going out alike. The only downside is that it doesn't do teeth the most justice with a tendency to make them look a little yellow but it works with my pale complexion well.
i wanted to try something else other than baby pinks and bright pinks so i got this soft coral color, i really love it! it brightens your complexion and it gives a nice kick when you have all neutral makeup :)
