Blast from the Past... MAC Angel Lipstick

You know you have too much makeup when you go shopping and buy products you already have! Well that's what nearly  happened at the MAC counter at the weekend. I was looking for a new lipstick to add to the collection, and I picked up Angel. Angel was my first EVER MAC Lipstick. As you can see it's been well loved!


I haven't used it for ages. Partly because it has a lot of competition these days and partly because I'm being sentimental; if I used it all up, I'd have to throw it away. Angel is a soft, rosy pink. It's not quite a milky pink like creme cup (caparisons below) but it comes close. I think it has lilac undertones and there's a very subtle micro-shimmer. It yields a semi-opaque coverage with a frost finish. I wouldn't say it was overly frosty, more of a pearlised shimmer. It glides on smoothly and is fairly creamy. It was my go-to lippy for years. I always wore it on nights out with a smokey eye... a look that never fails. 



Apparently it's a Kim K fave and she teams it with Nars Turkish Delight Lipgloss, another product I own but hardly use.
Angel will always have a place in my heart, but these days, I'm more likely to reach for Creme Cup. The shade is very similar, but creme cup is more milky and I prefer the moisturising cremesheen finish.

What do you think? Any Angel lovers out there?

  5. Wow I never knew Creme Cup was so similar to Angel. For some reason I always thought it was more like Myth...maybe I'm confusing Creme De Nude . Anyway. I have to stay faithful to Angel. It is one of my all time fav lippies :)
