MAC LIPSTICK AND LIPLINER REVIEW + 500 FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY

How I Wear has been running for almost two years now, and I'm so happy to have reached 500 followers. This time last year I had around 150 followers and no comment interaction on most of my posts. I post because I enjoy it, not just because I want to gain a big following, but it's always nice to see your work and content being appreciated. That wouldn't be possible without you guys and your continued support, so as a little thank you I'll be giving away two MAC lipsticks and a MAC lipliner of your choice. The giveaway will be UK only, and ends on the 18th March.

I love MAC lip products; their lipsticks were the first 'high end' beauty item I ever purchased, and looking for reviews online was what led me to discovering the world of beauty blogs and YouTube. The products pictured above are my current favourites, lipstick in 'Plumful' and 'On Hold' and liner in 'Brick'.

I first mentioned Plumful and Brick in 2013, and despite not loving Plumful straight away, I repurchased and now wear it almost every day. Plumful is a sheer dusky pink lipstick, with purple undertones. It's a Lustre finish, and so is quite sheer, making it the perfect everyday 'not-nude' option. On Hold is a pretty rosy pink, and it's a Cremesheen finish which means it glides on easily, and has a beautiful glossy and pigmented finish, which isn't at all drying on the lips. Brick is a deep red liner, and is creamy enough to be worn alone or under lipstick, and gives a darker intensity to reds, which I find really suits my skin tone. 

Which shades would you pick if you won? Let me know in the comments below.

  2. I'd love to try Ruby Woo and Please Me in the lipsticks! Redd lip liner is by far my favourite too :) On hold looks great, but I think Plumfull might be too dark for my skin tones.

  4. Congrats on your latest milestone! Really good work and testament to the fact you blog because you enjoy it, not for easy quick wins in gaining followers. Well done :)

    Ooh I have not purchased a MAC lipstick in SO LONG so would love to treat myself to lipsticks in Lady Danger and Velvet Teddy, with a lipliner in Soar. Want to see what the hype is all about.

    Thanks - fingers crossed!

    1. Thank you Lily.. Soar is a great liner, constantly out of stock though! I've never tried Velvet Teddy but there is so much hype around it that I feel like I should! x

  5. Im not sure which ones I would choose. I always go in with something in mind and leave with a different one. I quiet like the new Miley Cyrus shade.
    Im looking for a peachy colour at the moment but with a matte finish :)

  6. Congratulations! :) That's such a great achievement :)

    I'm so indecisive about MAC lipsticks but I'd love to try the classics, either Lady Danger or Ruby Woo, and then maybe the infamous Brave or Velvet Teddy, or a brighter colour for Spring. I always find myself browsing for swatches for hours!

    Congrats again :) Amy xx
