Besides my well documented love for coral, I do love a good pink lip, especially in the summer.
There are a few standout colors that have been gracing my lips again and again during this warmer weather, and quite a few of them are MAC.
The first shade is Impassioned, a beautiful warm pink that really brightens the face and just screams summer. It is an Amplified finish, meaning it provides a good amount of pigment with a teeny bit of shine, but it has great lasting power over all.
A more classic pink is MAC’s Girl About Town, which is a straight up, blue toned pink that packs a punch. This lipstick is one of those teeth whitening ones and absolutely makes for a stunning summer color. This one too comes in the Amplified formulation, which again is a happy medium between good staying power and comfortable wear.
Finally, we have a real stunner called Relentlessly Red. Despite its name, this one pulls extremely bright and warm pink on my (very pigmented) lips. I picked this up when it came out with a limited collection, but it has been made permanent ever since. The formula here is Retro Matte, which in fact, is one of the most matte formulas I have ever tried. This means that you do not need to reapply this lipstick for hours and still have amazing payoff, but it is also very drying on the lips. Make sure to use a heavy duty lip balm underneath and you’re good to go.
So there you have it, my favorite MAC Pinks. I do have a few other great pinks in my collection, which I want to talk about a bit more in depth, so stay tuned!
