MAC Patisserie Lipstick

I have gone through a few phases with my everyday lipstick choices, there was the dreaded concealer look lip, the light pinks, the corals and now I have settled down and am opting for a more “my lips but better” look. I have been chopping and changing from a few different lip products the past couple of months, but the past few weeks there has been one lipstick that has constantly in my handbag and that is MAC Patisserie. This has done its rounds on the beauty blogs the past year, and while it was always something I admired it never struck me as a lipstick I needed in my collection.

I did eventually pick it up since I wasn’t really happy with any of the other options I was using and thought that since this one has been so raved about that it was definitely worth giving a go. MAC Patisserie is a Lustre finish, I only own one other Lustre from MAC and that is Hue which is a well loved lipstick in my collection. These lipsticks feel lovely and moisturising on the lips as well as giving a lovely wash of colour. They wouldn’t be the longest lasting formulas of lipsticks in the MAC line up but I do like the finish that they give, so for me they are worth the extra few top ups through out the day.

The colour is almost the exact colour of my own lips, so it really enhances that and adds a nice shine to them. I would describe the colour as a dusky rose shade, perfect for everyday but also looks amazing at night with a smoky eye. I have been loving wearing this with my NARS Doucear blush and a small bit of brown shadow on my lids for everyday.

I am currently on the hunt for MAC Velvet Teddy and can’t seem to find it anywhere! If you have any suggestions for any dupes please let me know and I will be sure to check them out!
