MAC 'Brave' Lipstick Review!

I do love a good lipstick! About 4 years ago I purchased MACs satin 'Brave' and after a few months decided the colouring just wasn't for me, and slowly started to push it to the back of my makeup drawer. About a year and a half ago, I discovered the lipstick again, and fell back in love with it!




This lipstick is a satin finish, and I always think that satin finish falls half way between a matte and a glossy lipstick. They look quite matte on the lips, but they don't have the drying feeling that generally comes with a matte lipstick. They're definitely my favourite finish of lipstick and I try to get all of my lipsticks like this. It seems to be quite long lasting, and will sometimes stay on for 3 or so hours in the morning before I eat lunch. I received a couple for my birthday and Christmas just gone so I am well stocked up for now! Something I have noticed about MAC is their ever rising prices. When I bought it originally, it was only £13, and now, the lipsticks have gone up to nearing £16, so a £3 price rise seems to be quite a lot for 3/4 years.



Something I do dislike about this product, however, is the thickness of it on the lips. It feels very heavy, and almost cake-y once dried and can feel quite uncomfortable if you're not used to it. I think I would like it better if the formula was lighter, however the staying power wouldn't be the same.

Overall, I would recommend this lipstick to anyone who was looking for a good pink-y nude shade. It's definitely my favourite lipstick I've ever had!

Have you tried any MAC Lipsticks? Which is your favourite?
