MAC Mineralize Lipstick in Elegant Accent

Sunday, 14 April 2013

Hi everyone! I'd firstly like to apologize for the lack of posts this week. Been doing work experience for my course which meant doing work for a festival interviewing bands etc which was really fun, plus I got to meet Bastille who I love! Music stuff aside, I wanted to review a MAC Mineralize Lipstick because I haven't actually seen any reviews of this since they came out but they are really, really nice! I actually have two shades - Elegant Accent, a pretty pink and Lush Life which is a bit like Rebel but in a glossier form.


As I said before, I got the shade Elegant Accent which MAC describe as a 'mid-tonal warm rose cream'. I think I would agree with them, though on me it is slightly more of a baby pink than a rose shade. Formula wise, these have to be one of my favourite formula's (if not my favourite) from MAC followed by amplified, matte and lustre! These are by far the most comfortable finish for me, they are extremely lightweight to the point where it feels like a lip balm. Don't let this fool you though as these provide a very decent dose of pigmentation and moisturization to the lips and can be built up a lot if you do have a lighter shade. The finish has a shine to them but nothing glittery or overpowering in my opinion.


Then onto the packaging. I absolutely love it, not only does it look sleek but it has a magnetic closure which I think really adds something to the design. The only slight downside to these lipsticks is that they are £20, £6 more expensive than the normal MAC lipsticks. However, it is worth noting that these contain an extra gram of product so with the other you are paying over almost £5 per gram of product whilst these would work out as £5 so it's not too disimilar. 


Overall, I'd highly, highly recommend these lipsticks. Don't let the lack of reviews put you off, they are the most beautiful formula and finish and I will definitely be picking up more when I eventually use some more of my lipsticks I'm not so keen on up! I'd love to know your thoughts if any of you have tried these?! Also, please let me know any requests of posts you'd like to see! :)

  7. These sound like they have a great formula, it's a massive shame about the price, but with MAC what do you expect.

  11. I hadn't heard much about these at all...
    To be honest the higher price does put me off as I'm a student, but I'd still love to pick one up if I have £20 spare one day :)
