Review: MAC Reel Sexy Lipstick.




I spied this lipstick in the MAC store in Glasgow a few weeks ago and just needed it instantly. The queue was massive and I wasn't sure if I should be buying more from MAC as I had just bought some things from the Hello Sailor collection, but I couldn't get this lipstick out of my head. 
In the end, Jordan said to me if I really wanted it then I should buy it (my boyfriend is the worst) and I did and I haven't looked back. 

Reel Sexy is from the Reel Sexy collection, it's an Amplified finish and is described as a light, bright coral. I already have the 'Watch Me Simmer' lipstick from this collection and it's also an Amplified finish. Reel Sexy is the most beautiful coral lipstick that I own, it has the right amount of warm tones and is so flattered. It's highly pigmented whilst still creamy and moisturising, and although it's rather bright, the way I apply it is to tap it on my lips to get a little less colour so it's just a hint of coral.

I absolutely love this collection, I have two of the lipsticks, the Magenta blush*, Lightscapade MSF and Private Screen Cremesheen Glass*. I may review more of these in the coming weeks, but for now I have to say that if you can get your hands on Reel Sexy (it's sold out on MACs website) then you absolutely must! 

What do you think of Reel Sexy?

  2. I love this colour. Been searching for a 'coral' in the MAC range and was swaying towards 'Lady Danger' but this looks a lot lighter & brighter. Perfect <3

  16. I seen this colour last week and although i thought it was lovely I passed over it because it looked really 'loud', and im really not a fan of loud lipsticks, but seeing your swatches I may be tempted to take a trip to MAC at the weekend x

  21. That shade looks gorgeous on you! I'm not to sure a coral would suit my more tanned complexion but maybe I'm just being a bit of a scaredy-cat.
