So if you read my rather large New York Haul, you will know that whilst I was there I picked up a MAC lipstick in the shade New York Apple. I’m not gonna lie, I basically bought it for the sentimental value of buying a lipstick with New York in the title whilst in New York! However, since owning it, I feel like its a shade that definitely doesn’t get enough love and I wanted to share with you guys why you should add it to your collection!
Firstly, this is a Frost finish lipstick which I would normally avoid like the plague! I always associate frosty lipsticks with elderly women and it always puts me off. However, this has a really lovely finish. The frost element almost makes it look like it has more of a sheen rather than being all out glittery. I would liken it to a cream sheen finish but with a bit more pigment which I find perfect. So if you want to dip your toe into the world of MAC frosts, this may be the one for you to try first!
Now onto the colour. This is such a lovely berry toned red shade which I feel would look lovely on all skin tones. From pales skin ladies like me, where it will be more of a pop of colour, to darker skinned ladies where it will be more of a light flush, this will look gorgeous on everyone. It is a very universal shade. MAC describe it as a ‘muted red with pink shimmer’ and I guess thats quite apt. Their swatch on the website is more berry toned so if you mix those two descriptions in your mind, you’ve probably got the shade dead on.
For today’s look, I went quite simple as i’m revising but I also wanted the lipstick to do most of the talking today. I just paired this with quite a neutral eye and a bit of eyeliner and plenty of mascara and I was good to go. In terms of wearability, I would compare it to my lipstick in Brick-o-la as it is more of a muted colour so isn’t too in your face but packs enough of a punch for neutral haters like me! I even like my neutrals to be a bit wow so this ticks all the boxes for me. Let me know what you think, is this something you would pick up or do you already have it?
