Mac Girl About Town Lipstick Review

Mac lipsticks- £15.50 available here

I know- we've all seen and heard everything there is to know about Mac lipsticks, especially popular shades like this. But Girl About Town really is one of my favourite lip products at the moment, and so I thought I'd throw my opinion out there into beauty blogging land for what it's worth. It's been waiting ever so patiently for it's fifteen minutes of fame on the blog for over six months now, and so I decided today would be the day!

I don't live near a Mac store which is just devastating (cue the violins) and so I didn't have the chance to swatch this myself or see it in person before buying it. But I was definitely not disappointed when I opened it up- for a start it's bright fuschia pink, and so it can do little wrong in my eyes right off the bat. But it's much more than your standard barbie pink lipstick. It's described by Mac as a 'bright blue fuschia' and what it translates to is a universally flattering colour; whether you have cool or warm undertones or whether you have light or dark skin this shade will work. Girl About Town has been spotted on the likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Jessie J to name a few, and so it goes to show just how versatile it is and how it works with all different skin tones. I wear this shade for nights out as well as for a bright daytime look; it's long lasting too, making it an easy choice any time the mood for a bit of colour strikes.

Girl About Town is an amplified formulation meaning it's really pigmented and creamy. It fades evenly too, and so you're not left with patchy lips or that scary 'fades in the middle leaving a ring around your lips' look. The glossy finish is forgiving on slight dryness as well, unlike lighter shades which show up flaky skin like no-ones business. As with all Mac lipsticks it has an amazing vanilla scent, but is tasteless when applied to the lips- big bonus points for this because I usually dislike scented lipstick but I love this. If you're a fan of fuschia and don't own this yet you're definitely missing out, I can see why it's one of Mac's cult products!

  4. Perfect fushia! I allways find mac lipstick so drying though!

  5. Everybody is in love with this lipstick and I'm always intrigued on how it would look on me, but I'm just not sure if I'm brave enough to rock such a bold colour on my lips. I'm torn!

  8. Fuschia pink is my second favorite color to wear on my lips (after red) and I keep debating whether to get this or not. I love to be more bold with my lips than my eyes so this is definitely a product that I'd love to try out.
