Not my favorite lipstick, but I still use it from time to time
really pretty colour, nice smooth texture not too bold (which i hate) and goes well with a very dramatic eye ! 10/10 defonitley love it !!! :) good luck
this is the best pink shade for me. i use it on a daily bases it looks great with almost any makeup look. i would def repurchase this shade again.. looks best when you pat it on ur lips :)
I finally got my hands on Angel....i was a bit skeptical and wanted to get a dupe instead...BUT being a NC-42 i have to say that with a darker liner, and dabing it instead of smearing it, and adding a thin coat of a light pink or colorless gloss over makes Angel my favorite! and please take in account that i own TONS! of similar colors but i just love Angel....
I think that Angel is pretty when I apply a gloss over it but I am not a fan of it by itself. I find that most of MACs frost finish lipsticks can look really dull, and often times drying, if lipbalm is not applied first. I also have yellow toned tan skin, so I dont think Angel is very complimentary unless it is paired with something else. I also think it looks better in photographs than it does in person. Angel is pretty on some people, I think it just boils down to shade/finish preference and skin tone.
One of my go-to everyday lipsticks that I can just swipe on and go without too much fuss. Great pink that works well by itself or with a gloss on top. A must-have in my opinion.
My first MAC lipstick! Inspired by Kim K of course, so obviously I bought Stripdown liner. (used a drugstore dupe for the nars turkish delight by Revlon called Peach Petals)
LOVE this. People would comment on my lips, I do find though it is a look that requires you to be be reasonably made up (foundation, mascara, tiny smoke on the eye, bronzer/blusher) otherwise you can look washed out. I have olive skin (I think i'm about NW35, I use Chanel Vitalumiere in 40 for reference)
for those who want to achieve the Kim K lip, sticking to Angel won't suit most and there are plenty of other colours to suit different tones that will still give you a perfect nude lip. Angel is pink rather than nude, so if you solely want a nude lip, then this isn't it, unless paired with the complimenting liner/gloss.
I really like this color because it does give me the perfect pinky nude lip. Not too frosty either.
I honestly dont know what the hype was to make me want this lipstick so bad but when I FINALLY got my hands on it, I had mixed feelings about it. I'm not sure if it's the lipliner color I use with it or the fact that I prime my lips before applying it or if its the lipgloss that I put on over it, each day I apply this lipstick I feel differently about it.
Today I think I found the application that I liked the most since the day I bought this lipstick. I applied a cheap NYC Neutral lipliner to my lips, then applied the MAC Angel lipstick and over it I applied MAC Lusterglass in Baby Sparks (?). I really liked the neutral liner rather than the tan or hot pink liner. It really gave my lips a natural "just pink enough" look.
The price well, if any of you are familiar with MAC products you know lipsticks run about $14.95 (something like that) which is much more espensive than say a Revlon lipstick but is also much cheapter than any NARS lipstick or gloss. I'm not too fond of the price but the quality is good.
Packaging, I personally always liked the classic/classy look of the black MAC lipstick tubes, your opinion may differ.
Would I buy this again? I think I would, after I try out Snob though. That's next on my list. =)
So since beginning my makeup craze, this has been one of my go-to lipsticks. It just works with everything, the packaging is nice and sleek and for a higher end lipstick, the price is pretty reasonable compared to other higher end products. I love the colour and it's wearable on it's own or with a gloss. It doesn't make my lips chapped like Revlon Soft Nude. I notice that I tend to pick this lipstick up a lot whenever I have to rush out of the house or what not. Definitely becoming a HG lipstick. I would also definitely repurchase!
