Lips: MAC Watch Me Simmer

13 June 2012


I've been feeling a bit stressed out the last couple of days with work/money etc so that's why I've been a bit rubbish with replying to questions, comments and blogging in general. So I thought today I'd post about a bright, happy product that I've been really enjoying lately!

This lipstick has been in a couple of collections this year and is sold out on the MAC online store, but I managed to grab it off of the Selfridges website last week. I normally ignore MAC collections as they don't really appeal to me, but I saw this on Melanie Janes wishlist and instantly wanted it. I paid a stupid amount for next day delivery and have worn this pretty much every day since.

This is an amplified formula which I love because it's just so creamy and glides on to my lips. My lips are quite dry at the minute because of the recent bad weather, but this doesn't show that at all, it just has a really smooth, satiny finish. The colour is a really pretty bright pinky/corally shade, it's the brightest lipstick I own (I'm normally a nude girl), but I really think this is the perfect shade and I'll definitely brave a few more brighter lips now!

Of course this has the standard MAC vanilla scent which is delicious, and comes in the usual sleek packaging (its so diddy!). I was pretty impressed by the lasting power of this - I'm usually reapplying lipstick every ten minutes haha, but I go for a few hours before I even check up on this.

If like me you don't bother with MAC collections I'd definitely recommend you check this lipstick out, it's such a pretty and wearable colour and will bring some sunshine in to these horrible rainy days!

  5. i know how you feel, girlie. i've been VERY stressed out with work and money -- so much so that i've made myself really sick, so much so that i can't work, and then i stress out more because i can't make any money. it's a vicious cycle.
    i usually don't follow the MAC collections either, but i really love this lipstick! actually, i don't usually wear bright lipsticks either. i'm a very neutral sort of gal. but if i'm ever in MAC any time soon, i'll definately have to take a look at this.
    good luck with your stress situation! hope all else is well :)

  14. Great blog and gorgeous color! I love MAC lipsticks. They are super pigmented and long wearing. I suggest the color "snob". It's a mauve-y (is that even a word) color and it look really nice on a lot of skin tones. Please check out my blog if you get a chance? I'm just starting out and need some critique(: Thank you! -Jordan
