In my defence, I bought this lipstick from Mac’s Marilyn Monroe range for my mother, rather than adding to my own (ridiculous) collection (with the caveat I could try it, of course)! As a pink, it’s not really the kind of colour I usually wear, tending not to suit them. I made an exception for Pure Zen in this range because I wanted a new daytime lipstick – but this lipstick is certainly not in that category!
I have to say I really liked Love Goddess for a change, although it didn’t work as well as reds do with my warm skin-tone.
- Strong, striking colour
- Colour lasts well
- Feels nice on
- Stains lips (although some people might want that!)
- Although the texture is nice, it’s drying – a problem I find with a lot of Mac lipsticks
- Like all of the lipsticks in this range, it costs £15.50…
- Doesn’t really work that well blotted down – the colour goes a bit patchy
