New MAC lipstick: CB 96





This is the newest addition to my MAC lipstick collection and if I'm honest, I didn't feel like I was that spoilt for choice when I approached the counter. I usually go into MAC and think I want every single lippie and eyeshadow but recently, nothing has really jumped out at me. However, I had a few bits to back to MAC and I really wanted a new addition and this was a colour that had consistently jumped out at me upon every visit to the counter, so I thought, what the hey, it's free, let's do this.

This is also a lipstick I very rarely, if ever, hear about. I can honestly say I don't think I've ever seen a blogpost or youtube rave about this shade. Upon googling I'm sure I would do, but at the time of this post...nothing. 

What really jumped out about this shade to me was the fact that it's slightly orange but under the guise of a really bright red. It's a frost finish which, controversially, is one of my favourite finishes and has a really beautiful gold sheen to it. The thing I love about frost finishes is the depth it adds to your lip colour, the fact it's metallic really creates a 3D type effect to your lips and basically, just jazzes it up!

If you have a love for red lippies and feel intrigued about an orange base, I'd highly recommend having a wee swatch of this on your next MAC visit.

PS. When the hell did MAC lipsticks become £14?!

Until the next post,

Love, love, love,

  2. It looks gorgeous. Orangey red - could that almost be peach? I have a thing about peach at the moment! A bit out of my price range though, but I dream of having a MAC lippie one day. Lovely to find your blog!

  3. I am a MAC girl through and through! This shade looks gorge on you, i'd be afraid to buy if for me, for fear that it's be too sheer with my skintone. Looks so summery and pretty
