A nice, very deep shade of wine red. Nice cream finish, very flattering on many skin tones. One lippie off as it doesn't wear that well on the edges compared to other shades, and will stain your skin very easily. Was easy to remove from my acrylics.

Creamy red with a long-lasting, opaque formula. Very versatile and although it has cool undertones, will suit warmer skin types as well. Perfect for a classic, sophisticated look all year round.

Pros: can be worn in all seasons
suits all skins tones
flattering, clean-and-chic colour
dries very fast, long-lasting
Cons: consistency is very thin, more than 2 coats may be needed, depending on the desired result.

Overall happy with it, one of my staples. Will repurchase unless I find something similar with a thicker consistency.

My favourite OPI red. Very classy, yet eye catching bright red with warm undertones.
It gets over a week wear on acrylics with a top coat. Will definitely repurchase.

A bright sheer red for everyday use. Doesn't have the wow factor, but can easily be worn in the office, for a subtle, professional look. Looks lovely on warmer skin tones. As expected, the longevity is not great, and re-applying is necessary after a couple of hours. It leaves a nice stain on my lips. I have always received compliments when wearing this shade.

My everyday go-to lipstick. Perfect for work and all seasons. Doesn't dry out my lips.
Ideal for light, warmer skin tones (I'm a NC15-20) but I'm tanned at the moment (NC30-35) and it looks superb. I will buy it again and it will continue to be one of my staples.

Stunning colour, really flattering on many skin tones but unfortunately, too uncomfortable to wear as it it drying out my lips to the extent they crack and bleed.
I will definitely buy the same colour if it comes out in another MAC formula.

Disappointed. Although it has a lovely, summery scent in the pot, when applied it turns to a barely noticeable one. Although it claims to provide hydration for dry skin, it didn't come up to my expectations. The texture was harder to apply compared to other body butters, and the moisturising effects did not come up to the usual ones. I will not repurchase.

This brush gets a lot of love from me. I love smudging out my creamy eyeliners on the upper lash line with it. Its bristles are densely packed, so a light dip in the eye shadow delivers a beautifully smudged line, which can also be winged out. It's thin enough to line my lower lash line too. It can be used to apply eye shadow on the brow bone or the tear duct, although I have to say there …Read more
