MAC tropical taboo lipstick – lady at play

Sometimes I really don’t think Lewis helps me with my makeup habit. He got paid and offered to get me a new lipstick..Who am I to say no?! Well actually I was being good and i did at first but he insisted, what a gem! 

I’m not usually much of a coral fan, I tend to lean slightly more towards the pinks and reds, but once I swatched this I knew I had to have it!

Lady At Play is a beautiful peachy coral with lovely salmon hints to it. It is described as a ‘mid-tonal cool tangerine‘ although I would say that the colour leans more towards the pinkier side of coral as opposed to tangerine. This is the first mineralize rich finish that I have tried and I would say it sits quite similarly to a cremesheen finish in terms of moisturisation. I do feel that you don’t have to layer it up as much as a cremesheen to get as much of an instant opaque colour though. The lipstick is very pigmented and swipes with colour straighaway, but can still be buildable if needed.
The bullet of this lipstick is slightly larger than normal, so I did find it a tiny bit trickier to apply. Once I got used to it though, it was a piece of cake although I had to straighten up the edges with a lip brush, noone wants lipstick like the joker now do they?

This is a bit more pricier than your average MAC lipstick, but I am putting this down to getting more product than normal. An average MAC lipstick contains 3g but a mineralize rich finish contains 3.6g so I think this must be the reason for the difference.

I think this is an amazing colour for the summer and I can’t wait to show it off on holiday! After trying this lipstick I now think I may be becoming a coral person! 

This lipstick is part of the Tropical Taboo range and is available from Debenhams here.
