My Favorite MAC Lipsticks: Angel and Plumful

Who doesn’t love MAC lipsticks? With tons of finishes, textures, colors, shades and undertones you are literally destined to find your perfect lip color. I really like MAC lipsticks and more often than not I reach for these lipsticks as they usually do not let me down.

MAC Lipstick ($17.00) is a lipstick with hundreds of hues. The iconic product that made MAC famous.

So simple as that. The first product I ever got from MAC, the beginning of my obsession with MAC and the my first love with the professional make up started with my first ever MAC lipstick. I got lost among different colors and finishes and I was surprised to see so many interesting products at once. Now I know what finishes are best for me and what colors suit my skin tone the most. And I already have my favorites among MAC lipsticks.

MAC Lipstick in Plumful Review

For a very long time I have been a fan of lustre finishes and lustres remain my favorite lipstick formula by MAC. These lipsticks usually have semi-sheer but buildable coverage and feel creamy and nourishing on the lips. MAC Lipstick in Plumful was my another lustre MAC lipstick. It is officially described as ‘blossoming rose-plum‘ and it is a cool-toned and darkened fuchsia rose color with very strong plum undertones.

This lipstick glides on smoothly and looks very glossy on the lips. It does not differ from other lustre lipsticks from the range in terms of wear time and formula characteristics. It is quite hydrating when it’s on. It goes on sheer in one swipe but you can easily build the color up to the desired opacity. It stays on for at least four hours on my lips.

MAC Lipstick in Angel Review

MAC Lipstick in Angel was quite a discovery of mine. Of course, I’ve heard so much about it but never actually swatched it before. It is probably one of the most famous MAC lipsticks out there, thanks to Kim K and her makeup artist. She’s used to combine MAC Angel lipstick and Nars Turkish Delight lipglossMAC Angel lipstick has a frost finish due to amount of teeny-tiny silver glitter it has, that translates into beautiful silvery sheen on the lips. Even though it is frost it is nowhere near metallic and looks natural on the lips.

It is not that sheer as the lustre lipsticks and seems to be more on a creamier side. It covers lips evenly in one swipe. The shade is described as ‘soft pink‘ and it is actually neutral light pink color with finely milled silver shimmer. It lasts on my lips for strong five hours steadily fading aways afterwards. This particular shade can easily suit many different skin tones as it is not particularly warm or cool-toned. Just a beautiful natural pinky shade.

These two lipsticks are my current favorites. I wear Angel on everyday basis and I grab Palmful for more dramatic looks. Both lipsticks have very good wear time characteristics, shades are simply gorgeous and I am quite happy with my choice.
