Review | MAC Chatterbox Lipstick and OOTD

After a long first week of my last semester, I caught up with one of my best friends from school. I didn't have too much time to get ready, so a simple outfit with pink lipstick it was!

Foundation: BareMinerals Original (I'm giving this foundation a second try, I previously thought it broke me out. I hope it proves me wrong. You can read that post here). The foundation really does give the most wonderful glow.
Mascara: Covergirl Lashblast Original
Lipstick: MAC Chatterbox

MAC's lipstick in Chatterbox is a brightly hued and extremely pigmented yellow toned pink with an amplified finish. It's the perfect color if you want to go bright, but not "neon". This super creamy formula is really easy to apply, but it is easy to accidentally apply too much in one swipe as it is very soft. I didn't have an issue with it bleeding, but a lipliner may not be a bad idea!

The staying power is really good for being so creamy- most of it lasted through dinner! I will point out that once it wears off it leaves a "stained" effect on the lips. I wouldn't keep this as a "purse lipstick" since, again, it's really soft and would probably melt rather easily. Aside from that, it compliments simple make up well, and would go well with most skin tones. I can't wait to wear it more often in the spring and summer months!

And as for the outfit of the day,
Earrings: Tiffany
Coat: Guess
Leggings: J.Crew
Sweater: H&M
Boots: Bakers
Bag: Kate Spade (haul is here)

  5. Love that lipstick on you! And if the Bare Minerals breaks you out, you should try the Laura Mercier mineral foundation... from what I've heard, it doesn't contain the ingredient in Bare Minerals that tends to break people out!
