Mac Lipstick - Stone and Whirl | £15.50 | Link |
Recently Mac added 12 new lipstick shades to their permanent collection. The colours are all Matte or Retro-Matte finishes and I had to pick up Stone and Whirl. The Whirl lip liner is constantly sold out due to the popularity Kyle Jenner brought to the colour, so when I saw that Mac were releasing it as a lipstick, I knew it had to be mine.
Stone - Muted greyish taupe brown
Whirl - Dirty Rose
I ordered both lipsticks online, I'm an avid Mac shopper so kind of knew what to expect as I own both of these shades in lip liner form but when I opened Stone, I was worried. It looks dark brown. How was my fair, Casper skin going to pull that off? Then I swatched it and I'm pretty sure I heard angels sing in the distance. It's going to be perfect for Autumn/Winter, especially with a grunge make up look. It does pull a lot more 'greige' once applied and I really like it.
I like Whirl, it's nothing special and it's certainly not a dusty rose, it's more of a nude brown with slight pink undertones on my skin tone. I'll definitely wear it because it is a lovely colour, I just have a lot of other similar lip colours in my collection.
What can be said about these lipsticks is for a matte lipstick, they're not overly drying and I found them both comfortable to wear...I do wear liquid lipstick quite a lot though, so a matte lip doesn't bother me. They have pretty good longevity, and Stone especially is a unique colour. They're both bringing back the 90s and I'm a fan.
Would you wear Stone and/or Whirl?
