The Perfect Summer Red | Mac Relentlessly Red

Isn't this just the most beautiful Summer lipstick ever?! If you saw my recent Mac Haul then you'd know that I fell in love with this and picked this up with the Back 2 Mac scheme. If you aren't aware of what the Back 2 Mac scheme is, basically if you return 6 empties you then receive a free lipstick. Amazing right?! Never bin your empty containers ladies! I did originally have my eyes on Ruby Woo but when I saw Relentlessly Red I just knew I had to have it! This is such a gorgeous pinky-red which is almost neon, it just screams Summer, with cool undertones so it makes your teeth look ultra white - bonus! This is such a unique colour and is so flattering for all skin tones. Whether your pale or tan this just looks absolutely gorgeous and really does give that instant wow factor. As with all Mac lipsticks, the pigmentation is on point, one swipe of colour is all you need so you know that this lipstick will last you a long time as you need to apply hardly any. In the photo above I swatched it ONCE! This is a retro matte formula so bare in mind that it is pretty drying so a lip balm is essential. I probably wouldn't be able to wear this every single day (as much as I'd love to!) as it probably is the most drying of my collection and after a few days of wearing this I've found my lips are very, very dry and are in need of some TLC! The lasting power of this is pretty good, I normally tend to find that I need to apply some more around the 4 hour mark. The only grip I have with this lipstick is how it wears away, it just isn't even. Even without eating and drinking it wears away around the majority of your lips leaving you with a nice ring, so this probably isn't the most ideal lipstick if you're going to a restaurant for a first date! But I love this so much, applying it 3 times a day really isn't a problem as it's just so bloomin' gorgeous!

If you're a regular reader of my blog, then you'll know that for everyday I play it safe with pinks and nudes but guess what? I actually wore this lipstick for WORK! That's how much I love this and how confident I feel with it, I have honestly finally found my perfect red!

What's your favourite Mac lipstick?

  4. I am super jealous of people who can wear red lipsticks, I just don't suit it with my strawberry hair! Such a shame as this shade is so pretty!
