Syrup is wonderful when I want to do more intense eyes- nude lips just don't work for me, but Syrup gives the perfect soft slick of colour and shine.
The shade is a cool-toned pink with slightly mauve undertones. The texture is lovely- so light and moisturising, with a glossy, almost wet finish. Easy to wear, and I don't even need a mirror to apply. continued >>
The Lustre lippies are my favorite l/s in the MAC line. The Satins, Mattes, and Frost are too drying for my lips. I got Syrup, my third Lustre, and I really thought it would be too faded pink on me. The color description on MAC.com says a "Cloudy Pink." On me, Syrup is not a cloudy pink at all, but a pretty lavendar that goes well with Plum l/l (with the l/l lightly applied). It also feels very light and creamy on the lips. I am glad I got it because I had been wanting it for a while. Now, I want Hug Me.
The new Lustre lipsticks look moist and feel great on the lips. I bought Syrup, a "your lips but better" shade. It looks great with lavender eyeshadows- it has just a hint of berry-mauve to it. I am a PPP w/pink undertones, and this is a very pretty, very wearable shade. It makes me want to try more of this kind!
Mac lustre lipstick in Syrup is one of my can't live without it lipsticks. This lipstick has a real nice sheer moist feel to it on my lips, in the prettiest shade of mauvish-pink. I use this color both alone and on top of other lipsticks that are "my lips but better" but have a little bit too much brown in them. Other people have lipsticks go fuschia on them -that never happens to me but alot of lipsticks I buy look pinkish-brown (emphasis on the pink)and then turn orangish on me. I have very fair pale lips so I'm not sure why this happens. Regardless Mac's syrup is the answer to that problem and just a really nice medium mauve lip color to use on any day.
great feel, great colo. cool-based mauvey-pink. Looks perfect with"defined" liner. This actually stayed on , and left my lips moist. I love these lustre listicks.
This is a really pretty sheer mauve rose shade that looks very soft and natural on my lips. It adds a pretty shine and feels great on.
Although I like this shade and texture of these new Lustre l/s, I probably won't but anymore. I do like Syrup though, feels nice & smooth, easily buildable. It's one of my "Lips but better" shades.
This will definitely be a staple for me. I love the Lustre lipstick formula, esp. for everyday wear .... glossy, moisturizing, just enough pigment. Syrup is a lovely, wearable pinky-rose-mauve. If I want to kick up the color a notch, I put a stain on underneath, but it is lovely alone too.
I was nervous about this color because Hug Me was an absolute disaster on me. It turns out that I had nothing to worry about. I arrived home late this evening to find a little package from MAC on my doorstep containing the Syrup Lippie. The color is a sheer mauve w/ some slight pink tones (YMMV depending on your natural lip color). This just accentuated my lips and was shiny and moisturizing (shocking for a MAC lipstick). Some have described this as a lilac/lavender color and I do not find that to be true at all. When I think of lilac I think of the Nico Lipglass and this is nothing like that. Picture a very, very sheer version of the Lovechild Lipglass without the gold shimmer and you have this color. Very pretty. However, if you like a lot of color on your lips than pass this one bye.
A pretty summery violet pink glossy lipstick. I like the texture of the Lustre lipsticks - they are sort of wet feeling, not sticky, probably because of the silicone base. I'll definitely get more of these.
