MAC Après Chic

MAC Après Chic Lipstick
I'm not a big MAC follower, mainly stemming from a reaction I suffered to either an eyeshadow or eyeliner during my early teen years, but I do dabble into the vast world of MAC on occasion. After I saw the promo pics for the Après Chic collection, I knew that I wanted to pick up something.

After scouring the internet for product descriptions, and (once the collection was released) reviews and swatches, I decided to grab the cremesheen lipstick that gives the name to the collection. MAC describes Après Chic as a "pinky brick red." That description seems quite fitting--I would describe it as being an orangey-pinky-red.

Après Chic is a beautiful, and unique, colour--it is a warm shade, but it works with my cool skin. If you are one who likes to wear a bold lip that is still natural looking, and not too bright or garish, this shade might be right up your alley.

The cremesheen finish gives a slightly glossy or at least shiny finish to the lips. It applied very easily and smoothly, and so far, it isn't the slightest bit drying on my lips (always a plus during the winter months, especially). It is sold out on MAC's website, but I ordered mine from Nordstrom.com, who has free shipping and fantastic customer service! And the $15 price tag is a lot easier to swallow than some of the other lip products I have my eye on at the moment *cough*Burberry Lip Mist*cough*!
