There are three MAC lipsticks in my collection at the moment, which are Velvet Teddy, Whirl and Sin. I have already posted a little review on Velvet Teddy a long time ago, which you can read here, and I'm planning a review for Sin as well!
But for today, it's all about Whirl!
As you all know, MAC lipsticks are up there in the medium priced section of makeup products and with €21.50 for the lipstick and €17.00 for the lipliner it's still a burden for my bank account! This time, however, I didn't have to spend any money on these as they were gifted to me by my lovely friend Vanessa and my boyfriend!
Of course I'm just as impressed with this lipstick as I am with Velvet Teddy, though, with this one, and also with all my other matte lipsticks, I always use a lipbalm before applying it.
I find it a lot more comfortable to wear a matte lipstick all day long with a lipbalm applied beforehand!
The shade Whirl is a pink-brown nude that I think is very suitable for an everyday makeup look! I especially like how this looks with my skintone because I'm quite pale and this shade adds a bit more warmth and colour to my face!
The scent hasn't really changed either and it still smells of vanilla – yummy!
The lipliner, however, didn't satisfy me that much when I first used it. It's not as creamy as I always thought MAC lipliners would be but after I had warmed it up a bit, it was much easier to use and a lot more comfortable to apply to the lips.
Due to the exact same names of both products, it's obvious that they go perfectly together! I also saw a few other beauty bloggers combine the Whirl lipstick with the Spice lipliner or a few other different shades, but I just wanted to have a lipstick and the matching lipliner in my collection for once! Maybe I'll get my hands on one or two other lipliners from MAC someday to combine with my lipsticks!
For next week, I have planned a review for Sin as well, which I just love as much as my nude shades!
What's your favourite MAC lipstick shade? Maybe I can spot a new favourite! x
