I have two Mac Liquid Lipsticks and I’ve also bought some cheaper branded liquid lipsticks so I could see the difference. Today I tried Ess-Presso and Quite the standout.
Here is a swatch
I love with Mac lipsticks that they dry so quick within two minutes it’s set. My only problem is you need to make sure that you don’t make a mistake as it’s hard to rectify.
Trying on the lipsticks I wasn’t so sure about Ess-Presso it came out brown on my skin but on my lips it was a different story, it looked more like a black lipstick. I was more impressed with Quite the standout I think it suited my skin tone more. I did go into Mac and ask for an Orange Red colour as that is the colour that suits me (everyone has a red that suits them).
Here are some photos of the colours, another thing getting the lipstick off was a pain but I have found a good oil based makeup remover is perfect. I’m using Garnier Micellar Oil Infused water and it’s pretty good, if anyone has other products they can suggest let me know in the comments section.
Here are the results of the lipsticks please excuse my face it was literally baking outside and I had forgotten to use my Fix Plus.
Also I’ve noticed my frown lines between my eyes are becoming permanently etched (I frown a lot). I have been using Nip/Fab products but also any suggestions would be helpful as I would rather preven than cure. Ciao xxx
