I had always imagined I would get my first MAC lipstick when it was time to do my first back to MAC. That was not the case. Me, my mom, and my sister were already at the mall and my sister had it in her that she was going to get a MAC blush. Because I love makeup and trying things, I decided I had to get something from MAC, so obviously I wanted a lipstick.
I was thinking quick as my mom was getting impatient with us (she's not a fan of makeup) and the only color shooting out at me was Syrup! I knew that Lily Pebbles loves that color so therefore I needed it as Lily has similar coloring to me so I knew I could pull the color off.
First swatch was quite the experience! I didn't know what to expect at all. It's a lustre so I knew it was going to be shiny, but I wasn't sure of how opaque it would be on me or even how it would feel!
It felt nice and smooth and I could tell that it wouldn't be very drying. It lasts 3ish hours, and fades beautifully. So all the things I look for in a lip product are met, so I fell in love straight away. Oh and a little warning that this color doesn't look the same on every person. I could have sworn that it was a purpley-pink nude. On the bullet, it's more pinky-purple. On me, it's lighter than the bullet.
All in all, I'm so happy I finally have a MAC lipstick, and it's a lip color I know I'll get a lot of use out of!
