Hello my loves,
I blogged recently about MAC Reel Sexy lipstick in my recent MAC Haul however i promised i would do a more in depth review of it and as i am true to my word, here it is!
MAC Reel Sexy lipstick was released with the recent Reel Sexy collection and i must admit it was the only thing that i actually fancied from the collection. I do believe that this collection was released in the UK before the US (Surprisingly!) so swatches of any of the products on the internet were few and far between so i purchased online without seeing any pictures and really just going by descriptions!
Boy did my gamble pay off! Reel Sexy is described by MAC as light bright coral and has a Amplified Creme finish. This lipstick was instantly opaque and bright and went on my lips with ease and didnt take much effort to apply. This lipstick definitely leans more peach than orange as i tend to find that lipsticks with too much orange in do not suit my skintone. For instance, Watch Me Simmer, a orange lipstick that came out in this collection and looks stunning is way too bright for me to pull off.
The colour itself reminds me very much of Costa Chic without the shimmer or frost finish. As it is an amplified finish it is bright but in my opinion beautiful. It feels gorgeous on the lips, isnt drying in the slightest and i find it to be quite moisturising and so creamy.
This is one of the most gorgeous lipsticks i own and i am so glad i picked it up. I have quite a few MAC coral and peach shade lipsticks in my collection (mostly limited edition ones) but currently this is by far my favourite.
I believe that this is currently sold out online but the Reel Sexy collection is still available in stores so you may be able to get it still.
Did you get anything from this collection? What are your feelings towards orange lipsticks?
