These are the lipsticks I picked up from the Mac is Beauty collection. When I saw what the names of the lipsticks that I had picked were, I was amused. What must the planning meetings be like at Mac one wonders.
In the past, I would always have gone for the bright and opaque shades, but as I am trying to give a bit of variety to my lipstick collection this time I choose both a formula and a shade that I would not have chosen before.
Make Me Gorgeous is a wonderful addition to my corals. It is a gorgeous coral that leans pink in the Amplified formula. It has a sheen and very good opacity.
Diva-ish is also an Amplified lipstick. Even though I have quite a few bright pinks and fuchsias, I could not resist this bright darker intense fuchsia.
Catty is the lipstick that defies all my previous choices: it is in the sheerer Lustre finish and it is a light pastel pink! This is my step outside of my comfort zone. I can not say if it has been very successful as I have yet to wear it. There you go, all my good intentions wasted for now!
Call The Hairdresser! is perhaps my favourite. While it is also a sheerer Lustre lipstick, I find that this warm corally lipstick has become the perfect everyday shade. Very flattering!
It is very easy to spot what shades compose my comfort zone: corals, reds and fuchsias while I tend to shy away from pinks, lavenders and nudes.
What is your comfort zone? Do you dare step out of it?
