I feel bad telling you this week has been crazy, but the truth is, I’m usually pretty good about posting regardless of a little bit of crazy in my real life. This week, between catching up on everything (still) and a visit (still) from my mom from Montreal, I’d definitely behind on life and blogging. I’m also making an effort to be more social, so I’m about to head out to trivia again tonight but I have just enough time to tell you about the stunning MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Cantonese Carnation.
I’m pretty obsessed with the classic MAC lipstick but I’d heard great things about the Huggable lineup when it was first released in limited edition and I have been really curious to try it ever since. I did test out the Lip Gloss version (here) and those are great, but I like this MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Cantonese Carnation even better!
The packaging of the MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Cantonese Carnation is a dark grey with a flat top, and the lipstick itself also has a flat edge to it. Cantonese Carnation is a rosy red with a golden sheen. It has a delicious MAC vanilla scent! The MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Cantonese Carnation is semi-opaque, it applies evenly with a natural translucency to it. The lipstick has a firmer texture that really does hug the lips, while feeling moisturizing and very comfortable and lightweight to wear.
The MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Cantonese Carnation lasts about 3 hours on me, lightly longer than a MAC lustre lipstick does on me, and leaves behind a very slight stain. Although I tend not to reach for shades with as much red in them as this, it has a great formula, and as always, I’m eyeing up some neutrals.
If you’re looking to pick up a new lip colour for summer I highly recommend checking out the MAC Huggable Lipcolor range. This limited edition formula is flattering and comfortable to wear and with the bonus of added wear time? I have a feeling Cantonese Carnation will not be the last shade I try from the range!
Have you tried the MAC Huggable Lipcolors before?
