Hey it’s G,
Today’s topic is …. lip and check duo.. A cream color by MAC for lips and cheeks. It works as a lipstick aaaaaand blush. To be honest I only use it as a blush, and I have to say I love it. I bought two of their cream color Relaxation and Have a lovely day. Relaxation is gorgeous light rose shade. While Have a lovely day is a light rouge color.
The product comes in a round black box. The box is transparent on top, so, you can see the color. MAC logo is on the top as well. This color duo is small but will last long because you don’t have to apply a lot of it.
The color is very pigmented a small amount goes a long way. It is easy to apply and very smooth, it glides on the skin. These two shades contrast well with my tan skin, I can say that I love them both and they are just the right colors for me. Also, you don’t have to apply a base, the colors will pop without the need of a base enhancement.
The great thing about MAC’s cream color is that it lasts long and looks natural. I would apply it once in the morning and I don’t have to reapply it until the afternoon. It gives the checks a nice morning pink glow! You know the kind of pink color you get right after you wake up.
What I don’t like about this product is that if you mistakenly applied a lot of it, it would be hard to remove. I mean when I first bought this cream color I didn’t know how pigmented it was or how long it lasts. So, I used a lot of it on my cheeks thinking it would fade away after a while but it didn’t. When I tried to erase some of it, it got a bit messy. So, be sure to apply on a little then spread it. I prefer to spread it with the top of my fingers, this way I get more control, but you can also use a beauty blender or any kind of sponge or a brush.
