Here, Twiggy Twiggy! (MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig)

I like the natural look so I go for neutrals or nudes when it comes to lip color. In as much as I would want to go out wearing bold and bright colors, I cannot really muster up the courage to do so as I don't want to get the same kind of look I usually give when I see people wearing something outrageous, more so, with make up. Anyway, enough blabbing. So here's the latest lipstick addition to my mini mini lippy collection - MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig. Pictures!!!



It's a pretty warm neutral pink-brown shade that looks very natural - another MLBB. It's kinda similar to MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo, only this one has more brown and Cosmo is pinker. I'm not sure if I'd like the Satin formula in as much as I liked the Amplified Creme one as it is drying, based on most reviews I read on MakeUpAlley but I always apply lip balm before any other lip product anyway so I haven't experienced any dryness so far. No chapping or flaking as of yet. This color is great for everyday makeup and looks prettier when topped with a gloss. It complements my warm skintone and doesn't scream I-am-wearing-lipstick and looks really natural. It's like my lips only with a little more tint. My mom agreed that it works very well for my skintone and said it's a pretty lipstick too. Overall, I am liking it so far.

Swatch

Uneven application on the upper lip, I know. :P It looks dark on the hand swatch but turns to a pretty warm pink-brown color once on the lips.

I am a happy girl. But gah! When will this lippy phase ever end?

Happy Saturday! :P

  4. Cha, I apply 2-3 layers of lip balm before this one. :P

    Oh no, first the blushes, then mascaras, then eyeliners, and now lippies. Gah, the joys of being a girl and the pain our wallets have to endure. :D

  13. this is my first MAC lipstick and I will never regret buying this. The perfect dupe for this is Fashion 21 Mystical Mauve.

    MAC Satiate is also a must try :)
