Swatchtime: MAC Ablaze Lipstick

4/22/13

I'm definitely going through a lipstick phase, I'm not sure why, but it's there. Anything bright and colourful goes when I'm looking at all those lipstick bullets. 

This particular lipstick is a super bright and very pigmented strawberry orange, meaning an orange with pink undertones and so it't not a true orange. I'm so excited to wear this for summer, it's pretty long-lasting and really shows up on even my medium-pigmented lips! 






I've worn this for one [girls] night out and even after a few drinks and some shots the colour remained on my lips, albeit it was more of a stain. Since the lipstick is a matte texture, it didn't make a difference to me whether or not it was freshly put on (since there is no glossy look) or a few hours (and drinks) later. You can always put a clear gloss on top (as many girls do) if you love the colour and want a glossier/ more satin finish. For reference I have NC30 skin, and it really complements my olive and yellow/golden tones without washing me out. Ablaze is part of the Fashion Sets collection from MAC and as far as I know I think it's limited edition, but if you ladies have other info, please comment below! 

What do you girls think of the colour? Have you tried any of the other products from Fashion Sets collection?

    1. I think it would be super bright but also very fun on you, if anything you can go for something more rose-y :) Altho it's a collection so I'm not sure if it is still in-stores! (MAC always had a new collection every few weeks)
