beauty | mac 'syrup' lipstick

Mac 'Syrup' - £15
I introduce you to my first ever MAC lipstick in the form of 'Syrup' which is a lustre finish and is described as a cloudy pink/mauve. For me it's become the perfect everyday lip colour, great for any time on the year in my opinion, and I can't believe it's take me this long to finally buy it. In the bullet it doesn't really look like much, it's a slightly shimmery pink/mauve/plum tone that when on the lips translates into a semi-sheer 'your lips but better' shade. I also bought 'Plumful' at the same time as this and they are very comparable in appearance but on the lips this is much more of a softer, subtle lip colour making it much more wearable every day.

Having never tried a MAC lipstick previous to this I was unsure how the formula of them would be but I can now honestly say that this lipstick has one of the best formula's I've ever used. It's very easy to apply and is so creamy on the lips, while also having great staying power for a good few hours. One thing I absolutely love is the vanilla scent of these lipsticks which lingers for a really long time and I personally love that' some people may not though!

Syrup has quickly become one of my all time favourite lipsticks and I think I'm definitely going to be trying out some more MAC lipsticks for the great formula they seem to have. Any recommendations?
