MAC amplified creme lipstick - craving

This Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a MAC voucher from Lewis, what a good egg! He said after the Saint Germain incident that he didn't want to choose anything for me, at risk of me hating it so opted for a voucher instead. The only thing about gift vouchers, is that they seem to burn a hole in my pocket. To the point that I even thought about running to Debenhams on my lunch break on boxing day, but eventually decided against it after seeing the volume of crazy people floating around. The next available opportunity I was out voucher spending and one of the things I picked up was MAC craving lipstick.

mac craving lipstick review

I have to say I am totally in love with this lipstick! Craving is described as having a 'burst of plum' although I find it comes across a lot pinker than I expect plum to be, but still has a nice berry undertone. This is perfect if you are looking for a nice winter shade that isn't too dark.

As it is an amplified finish it is very creamy to apply and amazingly pigmented too. The texture doesn't feel drying at all either which I love especially for a winter shade. My lips seem a lot plumper when this is on too, which is always a bonus! 

I have to say I have been wearing this everyday since I purchased it, I think it has become a new winter favourite! Have you tried craving?
