Whoops, I bought two new MAC lipsticks. Let me explain–I can mostly restrain myself to one MAC lipstick at a time, but I went shopping with Jodi, and she tried on MAC Craving Lipstick, and it was just so pretty, I had to try it on too, and then I had to buy it even though I’d already picked out MAC Fast Play to take home. I didn’t want my lipsticks to be lonely, so I kinda needed both. Right?
MAC Craving Lipstick has an amplified finish, which is super creamy, pigmented, shiny and basically all around gorgeous on the lips. This shade is a plummy pink, that’s perfect for fall, or any time of year, especially when you only wear neutral shades like I do. If anything, this shade is bright enough to be a bit outside my comfort zone!
I love how evenly MAC Craving applies, it just glides on perfectly with opaque colour in a single swipe. It also feels creamy on the lips, with a nice shiny finish. It’s the kind of lipstick that honestly makes my lips look nicer than they are, and the best part is the lasting power is pretty good too! I find it lasts about 4 hours, and it feels comfortable on my lips the whole time.
Honestly, I might be a convert to the Amplified finish because MAC Craving is definitely longer lasting than the Lustre finish, like MAC Capricious, which is usually what I pick up. If you’re wondering, MAC Capricious is more plum, sheerer, and has a hint of shimmer to it. I definitely needed both. The second shade I picked up the same day, MAC Fast Play, is also Amplified and I’ll have a review of it posted soon.
Honestly, there are some MAC lipsticks that get a lot of hype, but the brand has a ton of shades and MAC Craving is one I hadn’t even heard of before Jodi picked it out. I’m absolutely in love though, I think this raspberry plum is a going to be a shade I reach for a lot and if your lipsticks are getting a little lonely, I definitely recommend checking out MAC Craving.
Also make sure to check out Jodi’s post featuring MAC Craving here–I didn’t want my blog post to be lonely either, so we are both sharing this shade today!
