The Duty Free Lipstick



As I walked through LHR T5 as I left for Barcelona I was more than aware that I needed NOTHING, especially in the fragrance/cosmetics department.. BUT you know that never works out right? 

No surprise I end up at MAC Swatching away, picking up every colour I'm drawn to, then to realise I already own it! I then spotted Amorous, now I'm not going to lie it's a pretty 'safe' colour, I don't want to say 'boring' because lipstick can NEVER be boring - ha! I kid you not. Anyways..back to Amorous - The colour is a dusky pink it reminds me quite a lot of MAC Soar lip liner which is one of my favourites. This is definitely one of those colours than enhances your natural lip colour and I really like it, I wore it pretty much all week in Barcelona. It's almost cranberry in colour and although it has the tendency to look quite brown based on the lips it has quite a strong blue/mauve undertone. Amorous is one of those lipsticks that could work for everyone; whether your'e fair and it appears a little bolder bolder or you have a warmer complexion and it's more of a nude - I love it! 


Amorous is a Satin Finish and although I prefer a matte lipstick I've been enjoying the hydration from the formula, I also find this stains your lips so beautifully. I'm not going to lie it is a little bit of a mumsy colour but I like it - I actually put it on my mum yesterday and it looked amazing on her! 

I'll feature this on my face properly SOON, here's a candid shot in the mean time! Not quite sure what's happening with my hairline haha.. That's what happens when you try to straighten your hair after it being up all day! 

Have any of you tried Amorous?

Lots of Love
