Yet another lipstick entry... For those who are getting tired of it, I apologize. But this lipstick accumulation was what kept me busy (and sane!) while waiting for Baby Selene in the last weeks of my pregnancy.
For today's entry, I'll be featuring a shade that has a cult following mainly because it's one of Kim Kardashian's signature lip color — MAC Angel. This plus the NARS Turkish Delight lipgloss (which I will be reviewing soon too!) are her go-to lip products for that Kim K nude lip we see her wear everywhere.
MAC Angel is a soft pink that is very versatile and can be worn by fair, olive and dark-skinned beauties alike. Although on my swatch above it doesn't register as such — it actually is a blue-toned light pink with some micro-shimmers being a MAC Frost finish. It isn't too bright that screams 'look at me' nor too pale that speaks of zombie apocalypse. I actually love the shade for daytime wear as well as for a romantic dinner date.
I find its texture more forgiving than Creme Cup. Although it does have a tendency to stick to dry patches and even to dryness you didn't even know you had, I find it applies smoother and appears healthier on my lips than the Cremesheen finish which is just a nightmare when I have bad lips for the day. Wear time is minimal as it is easily wiped off being a little glossier compared to the other MAC lipsticks.
Final thoughts? One of the lipsticks I will definitely repurchase when I do run out.
