Hi Beauties! Back at the end of last year, my parents kindly bought me a few MAC lipsticks back from their trip to New York and I've just realised that I never did a full review of each one. Now that I've had a couple of months to properly test them, I thought it was about time I showed you all of them!

Girl About Town is possibly one of the brightest lipsticks I own and I often look past it in favour of a nude lipstick, but recently I've been really loving it and think it suits Spring make up so well. Girl About town is a beautiful blue tones fuchsia shade which is great as it really helps your teeth to appear gleaming white. It comes off as a deep raspberry colour which is just so pretty for this time of year. 

Girl About Town is an amplified creme lipstick which means that it has a lovely creamy formula, but it really does pack a punch colour wise. As this is such a bright lipstick and I usually shy away from brights, I just pat a little of this on my lips then spread it across so it has more of a sheer finish, or just mix it with a little lip balm, but it's just as beautiful if you go for the full on fuchsia look. 

Have you tried Girl About Town? What are your favourite MAC lipsticks? I'm always looking for recommendations!

    1. Thankyou Gemma - that means so much as I love your blog photography! It is quite bright an intimidating, but if you dab it on then spread it out with your finger it's a lot more sheer and wearable :) xx

  12. I had a look at this lipstick at the MAC store yesterday! Really a gorgeous shade!
    You might like MACs Cosmo - it's a lovely "my lips but better" pinkish shade :) I got it as a christmas present from a friend - and it's actually my first ever MAC lipstick! I just reviewed it on my blog!

  15. Mac is the best! I love how it's so rich in color and really pigmented. Plus, it doesn't smudge right away! A little expensive but every penny's worth the product!

    Great swatches and review!

  16. Girl About Town is one of my favourite Mac lipsticks and I actually took it on holiday with me. At the moment I'm loving two shades from the Playland collection which was released last week in the US, can't wait to post about them.
