MAC Faux Lipstick... Don't Tell the Others, but you're my Favourite!


I probably say this (I definitely think it) every time I buy a new lipstick, but you're my favourite!

I absolutely adore this colour. I feel like it's the one I've been looking for... without even knowing it. I have a terrible habit of going to the MAC counter and being drawn to the lipsticks I already have.  Angel and Creme Cup are two of my all time favourites, but lately I've been craving something slightly darker, less pale pink and more, (I cringe at myself for saying this)... Kylie Jenner-ish!

MAC Faux (Satin) £15.50 here is a neutral medium pink with a hint of mauve - I feel like it's a darker, non-frosty version of Angel. Similar to syrup but less plummy. It sits in the same family as Brave, Twig, Mehr, but lighter and a little less brown.


The Satin lipstick has a creamy demi-matte texture, it glides on easily and lasts for absolutely AGES! You know me, I love a cremesheen, but they have to be touched up every five minutes. Satin's go on and stay on. Super pigmented and completely opaque - the colour you see in the bullet it the colour you get on your lips. I love it so much I used it for my sisters prom make up... the perfect compliment to a dramatic smokey eye.

  1. oh this shade is gorgeous! I understand completely about being drawn to shades you already own, I was at the Mac counter last week trying to decide on a lipstick and I kept picking up shades I owned already thinking they were innovating new shades!

  2. I've been the same recently, for so so long I've put off the whole Kylie Jenner lip trend, I just didnt want to fall in that stereotypical copycar category but unfortunately something has led me down the path and I'm loving it, I purchased pink plaid to ease my way in, then fan fare and now I'm feeling this is my next one to try! It makes your lips look so plump too!

  13. Hi Claire, I know I'm late to the 'Faux' party! But I just bought this ... Can I ask what liner you pair with it?

    Thanks
