• MAC Girl About Town - you beaut // review •

The combination of googling endless swatches and 
me being a little daring with my lip colours recently 
has led me to MAC's Girl About Town.

A simple, natural make up looks needs a pop of colour, and this lipstick just does the trick. This pink, almost reddy shade is a perfect match for my pale complexion - it brightens it up my face but doesn't look too overdone when I'm wearing a sheer covering of foundation and a coat of mascara. I can get away with it for day time - just - when I pat it onto the lips creating a sheer wash of colour, but it's also perfect for evening as you can build the colour with two coats, and it won't look patchy. 
I think one of the reasons this lipstick is so popular is that it has blue undertones, making your teeth look whiter. I have to admit, I don't really concentrate on my teeth as they're pretty white anyway so I haven't noticed it myself, but I will make a conscious effort to look out for this next time! MAC Girl About Town is an amplified finish  and as you can see in the photo above (sorry for the veiny hands!) it's so pigmented. This is just one swatch of the lipstick and the colour payoff is incredible. It leaves a glossy finish, the colour sticks around for hours and is the perfect Spring pink. The best bit about this is that I tested it last week what I went out for sushi and I was eating lots (and lots, and lots...) and the lipstick didn't leave that dreaded lip-liner effect, where it had worn off in the centre of my lips. The colour just sort of faded all over my lips and didn't go patchy. It was amazing, and I was so surprised to find this out when I got home 5 hours later!
I really recommend this lipstick if you're going for something a little brighter, but want something to sheer out, too. 

Have you tried this lipstick? What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
