and the banker never wears a mac

 As well as becoming a Lush girl, I think I've also become a MAC one. When the lovely Corinne told me I'd won her House of Fraser gift card I decided to finally try some MAC lipsticks. They obviously aren't the most expensive make-up product out there but it did feel like a splurge I wouldn't have otherwise done. However, after actually owning these, there's no going back. I can now even understand people who only use MAC, haha. So glad to be wearing these, even when only staying in and reading about the Secret Services (which is basically what my life is right now).

 The first one I chose to get is Morange, which is a lovely orange. I wouldn't actually mind it being even a brighter colour, but it is really nice for everyday wear; lovely and creamy. At the moment I'm more drawn to darker shades, so I'm looking forward to spring and wearing this all the time!

Like I said, I'm more into dark colours now, like Film Noir. This is definitely what I've been using the most lately. The perfect dark lip, I'd say. Most of the time I like to keep the rest of my make-up simple and light with this, but don't mind going for a more gothic or grunge look either.

What about you, do you love MAC and what's your favourite lipstick at the moment? I'm curious, haha:-)

That orange shade is perfection on you. I would love to be able to pull off such a vibrant lip! I like MAC but my total faves are ELF <3
