Review | MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig

Friday, 19 June 2015


MAC Twig

I received a MAC gift card for my 21st and after much deliberation over what to get I chose their Satin Lipstick in the shade Twig along with a few other items. I decided to pick Twig because it swatched as a beautiful browny pink, and despite the fact that it's a satin finish it wasn't overly shiny which I liked as I tend to prefer a matte look on my lips.

Unfortunately I found that the colour didn't translate as well onto the lips as it did when I swatched it, it's a lot paler and pinker on my lips and I honestly prefer the swatched shade, but it's still a perfect colour nonetheless, one that could work for every occasion whether it be a wedding or just a normal day at work. I'd consider it one of those 'My Lips But Better' shades that every girl needs as a staple in her makeup bag.

The formula is creamy and applies easily as you'd expect from a MAC lipstick, although though it's a satin finish it lasts well even without using lip liner underneath. The only other fault it has is that it does start to slightly dry out my lips after a few hours, but that's nothing that a quick swipe of lip balm can't fix. On the plus side it also has the trademark MAC smell to it, a soft vanilla that's oh so sweet and makes applying lipstick even more enjoyable.

Despite the issue with the swatched colour being different on my lips, I really love this colour. I do tend to find that MAC lipsticks are a little out of my price range but this is well worth the investment as it's a great every day nude that I can see myself getting lots of wear out of. Do you have this lipstick yourself? What other nude lipsticks do MAC do that you love, I'm debating trying out Mehr or Velvet Teddy next but I'm worried they might be too similar to the shades I already have. Maybe I should branch out and go for something brighter!

  5. I really want some more too but I'm trying (and failing) to ban myself from nude shades so I can't decide what to go for!
