MAC Fanfare Lipstick

My first MAC lipstick purchase, am I  a proper blogger now?

I have been lusting after MAC lipsticks ever since I decided that I should attempt to try and make more of an effort with makeup. They are the creme-de-la-creme as far as I understand and my very limited knowledge of beauty products was in no doubt when I entered Harrods to witness the huge MAC counter. 

It took me a while to decide on the colour, as naturally one has to atleast try several before buying! I settled with Fanfare, a baby pink with quite a my-lip-but-better tone & this is what it looks like.

I am a convert to high end beauty products already, as this lipstick lasts for hours. I talk quite a lot & eat non-stop, so lipsticks are truly challenged with me, but this lipstick stayed put much longer than any other I've worn before. Real stamina! 

What should my next shade be?

  2. I'd definitely recommend Modesty by MAC. It's in the same colour family, just a brown-toned wearable my-lips-but-better colour. It's also a Cremesheen and has amazing staying-power!

    1. Ah, well I have a South facing bedroom which means I get a LOT of light. Although through the winter, I obviosuly havent had any. So, I just take photos during the day at weekend, but I take them on a white sheet on my windowsill to get maximum light and then edit them, to brighten them!
