After the London bloggers meet up event the other week, I paddled through the rain to get to Covent Garden so I could pick up this lipstick. I tried it at Edinburgh airport in May and decided I wanted it but they were sold out.
It's Craving by Mac and it's a dusky berry sort of shade
The colour probably looks truest here on the back of my hand, although I'd say it's still darker than this in real life
My first lip swatch - hello trout pout! Don't lips look funny close up?!
My camera has really made this come out so much lighter than it actually is. For a better swatch, have a look at Temptalia. I'd say her swatch on the hand is pretty true to life although it's still coming out lighter in her lip swatch than I think it really is.
Craving is an amplified creme which is possible my favourite finish on a Mac lipstick as it's not at all drying, goes on really easily and looks a little bit plumped. It also lasts quite a while on my lips too.
I'm slowly building my Mac lipstick collection and although they are a bit pricey, I really love the quality and the finishes. I just can't wear cheap lipsticks now, they just don't glide on as nicely or have such good shades.
What do you think? Are you craving it...? (sorry!)
