Review: MAC Saint Germain Lipstick


Hello lovelies!
When i posted my first Week In Photos (which had a great response thank you so much!) Phoebe asked for a review of the MAC Saint Germain Lipstick, so this is for you hun! 


Saint Germain was if i remember correctly, the first MAC lipstick i ever owned, bought for me by my boyfriend around 2 years ago! I got this one a couple a weeks ago as a back 2 MAC! 

It is quite an intense bubblegum barbie pink so what i tend to do is wear a balm underneath, usually a Sleek MakeUP Pout polish and it sheers the colour down ever so slightly. 
It has an amplified finish which means it is quite bright and opaque, although i still find it to be quite moisturising, especially if you have a balm underneath like i do. You can change the intensity and a quick swipe will leave you with a pop of colour, whilst you can also go extremely bright and build the colour up. 
Swatches
Saint Germain Lipstick is available from MAC Cosmetics for £13.50.

Is this a lipstick that you own? 

Any other lipsticks you would like to see a review of?

  1. This is such a pretty colour but its really bright like you say. I once did a bridal make up and the girl and her mum insisted on wearing this lippy ha xx

  3. I like this but it's not my favourite! I think it makes me look like a bit of a prostitute :P blonde hair + bad fake tan + this = not very nice :P I've seen it on brunettes though and it's bloody stunning xxx

  4. I don't own it but it's been on my wish list a while now. It is quite 'out-there' though!

  7. Light lipsticks look so chapped and awful on my lips, think it might be the formula of the lipsticks though because my lips are in pretty good condition, maybe i should try MAC!

  9. I think this would be a bit too bright for me (I'm boring and play safe with neutrals most of the time!) but it looks nice on you x

  10. Thank you so much for the review - I've been umming and ahhhing over this lipstick for a while now, but I'm going to take the plunge and pick it up next time I go to MAC. Great idea to use a balm to sheer it out a bit too :)

  11. Pink can be such a hard color, as I've been looking for a soft, lovely, light pink that works on fair skin. I might have to give it a shot but you're right, it's quite brite so it may not work on me as nicely as it looks on you!

  12. I can't wear bright pink lipsticks they just emphasise the redness in my skin!

  20. I like it, but I wouldn't buy it. I'm pretty content with my NYX BLL - they have plenty of great barbie and bubble gum pinks.
