Mac Speak Louder Lipstick


A lot of lip reviews this week! Another one coming up next week (Revlon Lip Butters). 

When I went shopping last week I decided to head into Mac in Brown Thomas and treat myself to 'Impassioned' but unfortunately it was sold out. Not too sure if it's just because Cork is a smaller store or it's getting incredibly popular down this part of the country! Anyway hope it comes back in soon.  I was not to be disappointed, I eyed up the mac up artists and decided on one that gave me a big smile and asked how she could help me out. (Yes this made a huge difference compared to some that try to avoid eye contact!) I asked for a similar colour, and also inquired whether it would suit my colouring. 

I'm known to keep neutral with my lipstick/colours so this was a step forward.

I bought both a lip liner in Beet and Lipstick in Speak Louder (cremesheen). 

I first filled in my lips coming from the outside and shading in a little up the lips. I shaded with my fingers, but you could use a small sponge. I was told to bring the liner up the lips as this helps keep the pigment in your lips for the day. I would normally just line the lips and not shade in, so I was delighted with this new tip.

I then glided the new lipstick on, It is a cremesheen lipstick, which would be my favourite mac lipstick type, as I find it keeps the lips moistened and tends not to dry as quickly.

Love my new edition to my Lipstick collection.

  4. love that colour so much! might have to get it. could you explain that tip for lip liner the woman gave you some more? x

    1. Of course..normally when I line my lips with lipliner I tend to draw a simple outline around my lips, the mac up artist told me to forget that method and after drawing a line around my lips to shade in with the side of the pencil (the chunky side) and then get your finger tip and blend in.. Basically so that 60% of the lip is pigmented with the liner as to have a staying power of colour for the day.

      Hope that helped a little xx

    2. perfect! thank you, will definitely give this a try!x
