I bought this lipstick a few months ago because I was on the hunt for a lipstick perfect for spring, and I also wanted a more pinky lipstick. This one is perfect! It is a beautiful mid toned pink that is so wearable and doesn't make you look like a little girl!
Here is the swatch on my lips, I think you'll have to agree it is gorgeous.
Lovelorn is a lustre finish, which along with cremesheens have to be my favourite formulation from MAC. I love how this applies as it is very smooth and it moisturises my lips. It has a nice glossy look but it doesn't look completely OTT. I never feel the need to apply a gloss over this either. Although it is glossy and smooth it lasts a good few hours. It doesn't last as long as some of their other formulations but it definately lasts a lot longer than drugstore lipsticks. This even lasts when I eat and drink, however if you want a really long lasting lipstick I would suggest the pro longwear lipsticks or the matte/cremesheen lipsticks as I feel they last a lot better than the lustre finishes. However this is beautiful and natural and I love the finish it gives. It does not dry the lips out, which is great as I find some of the other formulations and drugstore lipsticks are very harsh on the lips. Another great thing about the lustre formulation is, if you have mega dry lips like myself this lipstick won't cling to them and exxagerate the flakes and dryness it will disguise and moisturize the dry skin to leave it smooth. Overall this is a definite thumbs up from me and I would definitely recommend these.
What I love about MAC is they have every colour and formula under the sun and although these little beauties are priced at £13.50 I think they are worth every penny. i think the packaging is gorgeous & classy and I think they apply and wear amazingly Whenever I go and buy a MAC lipstick I never feel like I have spent too much, which is a nice feeling as I find it hard to justify some of my purchases sometimes.
I definitely want to pick up some more of these lipsticks as I think they are amazing!!
