MAC "Syrup" Lipstick Swatch + Review

MAC "Syrup" Lipstick
This Christmas my sister went above and beyond when it came to presents. If you saw my LUSH haul from last week (click here if we haven't seen it) then you will know that she got me some LUSH goodies for Christmas but she also surprised me with a MAC lipstick that I've been talking about for what seems like ages.Whenever we went to the MAC counter I would always talk about how much I loved the shade and she, being the fantastic sister that she is, remembered and went out to pick it up for me. And, what made the gesture even better, she got the lipstick by trading in all of her empty MAC packaging through the Back to MAC program. 

I know that she doesn't get to buy a lot of  MAC products (even though she loves to stop by the counter and ogle) and it really meant a lot that she was willing to sacrifice her chance to get a new lipstick for herself and instead got something for me. So, in case you're reading this Jenn, thank you. I love all of my gifts. You really knocked it out of the park. And now, enough blabbering. Onto the review!

MAC "Syrup" Lipstick
MAC "Syrup" is the prefect everyday, pinky-nude lipstick. I have been reaching for this shade over and over again since I first opened it up on Christmas morning. Even my parents--who ironically gave birth to two makeup junkies but don't really don't like makeup--are fans of this shade. It first caught my attention when Allison ( talked about this shade a while ago in one of her videos. It isn't a shade that, I think, a lot of people know about because its such an understated shade. But it truly is lovely and I highly recommend that you check it out the next time you visit a MAC counter.

Here is the color applied to the lips. As you can see its a lovely your-lips-but-better shade. It reminds me a little bit of the Maybelline "Warm Me Up" lipstick but "Syrup" is less nude and more pink. Like all MAC lipsticks, it retails for $15.00 and you get 3 grams (or .1 fl oz). It is a pricey lipstick but it goes on incredibly smoothly, with that familiar vanilla scent, and the beautiful lustre finish.

  3. GAH, the lipstick counter at MAC is like a candy store! sooo many yummy colors- i always want to buy like 5 but then that would cost me $50 haha. That color is super pretty- it's so light and fresh. That was an awesome choice! And I actually just moved from Seattle back to Chicago- we just missed each other, haha! :(
