I received a Mac gift card for my birthday last year, I’m actually quite shocked I held out this long. I was actually waiting for Mac to put out something that really caught my eye and spoke to me until I obsessed and dreamed about it. Oh the mind of a makeup addict! And I missed out on the Punk Couture collection(I’m glad I did because I have enough dark lipsticks).
Mac usually puts out some really nice lip shades for spring and summer. I bought Red Balloon and as you can see it’s not quite red, at least on my lips. I LOVE Mac’s Amplified finishes so this was a no brainer to me. I really wish they had more Amplified because the finish gives excellent coverage and silky smooth. Sigh… I really like this lipstick although I’m sure it can be easily duped. This is a perfect Summer color that is bright, but not in your face bright, and the lipstick stays on the lips for a fair amount of time, like most Amplified finishes.
This is a Saturday look I did, not really crazy about the eyes but I wanted to play with and test my Kryolan eye palette.
