Mac Speed Dial

Hi and a big hello to you all. Hope everyone is good :) Today my post is dedicated to the sweetest pink lipstick in my collection.

Yes its Mac! And she goes by the name of 'Speed Dial'


Speed Dial is a cremesheen formula which gives a creamy sort of milky coverage with a slight gloss to the finish... Not talking a lip gloss effect here, think more of a matte lippy with a slick of lip balm over it .


In my opinion (which is based on nothing scientific) Speed Dial is a cool toned pink, with a gorgeous golden shimmer running through it. The colour pay off is fabulous and is almost opaque on the lips. The gold isn't glitzy nor does it give a pearlised or frosted effect so it is super wearable through the day. 

Mind because of the finish its staying power isn't that of a matte, so to keep that colour popping, prepare to reapply in maybe 3 or so hours. No lip brush needed :)


L- One swish                                            R- Two swishes intensify colour

Next two pictures are almost definitely unnecessary facial close ups! So be kind and use a sort of squinting technique when looking :)


Photo above is 2 coats of Speed Dial with no blotting. 
Photo below is after blotting (and lil sneak peek of nostrils too!)


As I'm a total fanny scatter brain I forgot to take Speed Dial out on my travels the day I debuted it... So here's me 6 hours post application... A very faint wash of colour left, rookie error!



So in a shell of a nut, Speed Dial is probably my 'go to' day time lipstick as I cannot seem to pull off nudes! Its light fresh, girly and ever so pretty.

Anyone else got it? What's your favourite day time shade? I need to expand my collection :)

Looking forward to reading and replying to your gorgeous comments 

Love

  1. I adore 'Please Me' by MAC- a similar shade but slightly lighter and with a matte finish :-) I did a review here: http://olivia-ellen-wears-words.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/mac-lipstick-in-please-me.html X

  3. Love this shade! I'm not into nudes either I just don't think they suit me and look weird as I have quite pigmented lips! I always go for a berry tinted pink or more of a deeper pink but this looks like it's a really wearable colour without going too bright but being more summer appropriate that a berry! I'm loving MAC sweetie at the moment xx

  6. I'm like Jessica above and massively cannot pull off nudes either - having really pigmented lips is a blessing and a curse haha! Fingers crossed I'd be able to pull this one off, it's such a gorgeous colour :)

    1. The plus side of pigmented lips is that we can rock a slick of Vaseline or a clear gloss no problems!!!xxx

  13. A very pretty. I haven't tried a Cremesheen finish yet. I like my lipstick opaque but Speed Dial looks quite pigmented.
