Lipstick Review: Girl About Town

MAC Girl About Town lipstick

I have been building up to try more out there pinks. While I was in MAC innocently picking up a new foundation to replace one that had finished (see I do use things up!) I somehow ended up by the lipsticks.

Girl About Town has been on my wishlist for some time now. I decided to bite the bullet and just buy it. It is now my favourite lipstick and it gets alot of queries on nights out because it's so fabulous!

I adore their lipstick packaging

From the MAC website, they describe Girl About Town as a bright blue fuchsia. It has an amplified creme finish. This means they are creamy (moisturising) and well pigmented.

Before I apply Girl About Town, I first use a lip pencil to fill in my lips. This helps the lipstick last longer and prevents it from bleeding down your face. Not a good look!

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a photo of this lipstick on my lips because of the new lighting situation that faces us in A/W!!

The best I could is a swatch on my hand. I meant to a get a shot of it on my lips the day I was taking all these photos but shur! Distractions.

Just looking at my swatch above, I can actually see what MAC mean by bright blue fuchsia. I can see the blue undertones.

I absolutely love this colour. It is my favourite lipstick. My number one. My go to on nights out. I'm not brave enough to wear this during the day. I stick to corals or lip balms. I need to man up!

This is my second MAC lipstick and I have already added a third one :) What are your favourite MAC lipsticks or any other brand for that matter? I also love Rimmel lipsticks.
