All about Spring.. Saint Germain MAC

Aww, todays weather in the UK was glorious and I can feel Spring coming!! As per usual the weekend consisted of more shopping. One thing led to another and I ended up in Mac (Shock!). 

I wanted a highly pigmented, yet wearable pink lipstick ready for what spring has to offer and decided to buy the Amplified Creme Lipstick in the colour Saint Germain. As with any lipstick I am always weary whether I will pull it off, but I have learnt that I just need to wear the right colours with the right makeup look for the day and just feel confident in myself!

As soon as I put this on I loved it! Its a gorgeous strong pink and the amplified creme formula makes its opaque and creamy. I admit, it is a little streaky and you must apply it in the correct way and maybe a couple of times for it to even out but that may be down to the pastel shade talking. 

I wore it for the first time today to work and immediately got a compliment from it!
 Overall it lasted pretty well though my lips are fairly dry at the moment so I probably should of used some lip balm and exfoliated my lips before hand to make it last and not go into the cracks. One thing I dislike however is that I find it hard to cover my entire lips if that makes sense... With many lipsticks I don't need a lip liner and if I go slightly over then it doesn't matter but I think I'll have to buy a light shade lipliner for this little one!

Overall I am happy with the Saint Germain Mac lipstick and know it'll be a lovely shade for Spring, however like many lipsticks I do think certain skin tones will pull this off better than others, mainly the palest of the bunch! 

Happy Sundays xx
