I haven’t posted about MAC products for a long while now; in all honesty I just am no longer enthralled by their monthly releases like I used to be – yes, I was that person who hovered outside MAC until opening time on the first Thursday of every month (little tip for you there MAC lovers) to be the first to feast my eyes on the new stuff. But it’s been months since a collection really made me listen up. Now the Beth Ditto release still isn’t really my style, lots of bright, out-there shades and a blush compact inspired by Mr Blobby; but it did contain a regular re-release that I am always tempted to purchase whenever it comes out – In Synch Lip Pencil. And you know what, this time I did!
I always find that lip pencils, especially those on the highstreet come in very dark shades, so it’s hard to come by a nuded pink one. So In Synch is exactly what I was looking for – a creamy baby pink with a hint of peach. It slightly nudes out the natural shade of my lips but doesn’t leave them too pale, meaning that I can wear it on it’s on or with a gloss or lipstick layer over the top. The matte texture makes it super long-lasting, I’d say about 5 hours or so of wear but can make it a little drying, so in the photo above I’m wearing it with a touch of By Terry Baume de Rose dabbed over the top. Another beaut of a combo I’ve found is it layered with the Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Orange Tulip over the top – nudey, pink, peach lip perfection!
MAC In Synch Lip Pencil is still in stock on the MAC website, I managed to pick mine up in my local store, so it’s not too difficult to get your hands on and it’s priced in line with their other liners at £10.50. Do any of you have this hanging around in your makeup drawers from a past collection, or fancy getting your hands on it? I think I’ll be using this quite a lot as a base for my nuder lipsticks, especially on nights out!
