January Blues…


MAC ChatterboxI am not a big fan of January. Christmas is over and I’m left with the sad task of packing up Christmas decorations and a few extra pounds on the hips. Here in Ireland the weather also gets cold and miserable and daylight is gray and gloomy once December is over. The fact that I like wearing dark colours (my wardrobe mainly consists of black and gray pieces) doesn’t help at all and this is why I recently dug out all my spring and summer lipsticks to bring a bit of brightness and colour into my life. I completely forgot that I have MAC Chatterbox stashed away and seeing it just made me so happy that I’ve been wearing it all the time lately.

Chatterbox is a gorgeous neutral pink colour, maybe somewhat on the cooler side. It looks absolutely gorgeous on pale skins but it would suit most skin tones really. I love this shade of pink, it reminds me of flamingos for some reason. It is quite a hard colour to describe, I would say it is a milky neon, if that makes sense. It’s not too bright but also definitely not dull. Chatterbox is an Amplified lipstick (what MAC call this particular formula) and comes out very opaque and pigmented. The formula is nice and creamy though so will not dry out your lips.MAC Chatterbox

Have you got any favourite pick-me-up lipsticks that make you smile?

    Beautiful colour! Do the MAC Amplified formulas stay on for long? I can’t think of any amplifieds in my collection!

      The Amplified formula is very highly pigmented but it’s not matte, it’s slightly creamy so it would not stay as long as a completely matte lipstick. With the Amplified lipsticks you can do a stain on your lips by applying the lipstick and really working it in with a brush and then blotting the lips. After that you can just top up a bit from the lipstick bullet and the stain you made should stay for a good while :) hope this helps xxx

    That looks really pretty on you but I tend to find the Amplified formula quite drying on my lips xo

      I usually wear matte lipsticks so the Amplified ones are like lipbalm to me ;) I suppose it depends on the individual lips x
