I have had this lipstick for ages, but it has been hidden away in my drawer not seeing daylight. I started to get a little bad with make up and lost my blogging mojo a little bit, but as you can probably tell I'm backkkkkkk.
I actually got this as part of MAC's Red Red Red collection (shows how long it has been hidden away, whoops!) but have only just started to use it more recently. I've found since having turquoise hair, I have to be a bit more careful when it comes to red's as some can make me look a bit washed out.
5 Alarm is a lustre finish and like others feels very moisturising on the lips. I found this more like a balm than a lipstick as it only very slightly tints the lips an orangey toned red. I didn't find the colour lasted too long on me either, after about 2 hours it had completely gone away.
I wouldn't say this is my favourite red lipstick from MAC as I prefer a bit of a bolder colour but its nice on the days I just fancy a bit of colour.
Have you tried this lipstick, what are your thoughts? ♥
