Yikes, sorry for over-posting today, but I can't wait until tomorrow since these are selling out pretty quickly.
I've caved in and got one thing from MAC's To the Beach collection, and duh... it's a lipstick. I should feel ashamed at this point and stop obsessing about lipsticks. I've noticed that every time I get really stressed or annoyed I go out and get a lipstick. haha.. so yeah, today wasn't a good day for me :p
I was originally thinking of buying "Beachbound" and/or "thrills" along with lazy day, but none of them really appealed to me. Beachbound is definitely a beautiful pale peach lippie and I understand why everyone is going crazy over it, but it just doesn't fit my face. I tried it on and it DOES look like I literally went to the beach and had a mouthful of sand. My lips look too grainy and dusty-dirty looking, even though the lipstick is a glaze. It brings out the yellow and redness around my mouth (old acne scars and such) and makes my mouth area all dirty and weird.
But nonetheless, here's a small swatch of beachbound along with lazy day and one of the lipglasses.
Okay, enough of beachbound - let's get on to Lazy Day.
Lazy day is a Lustre finished lipstick described as a light dirty blue pink by mac. I think it has a bit of a grayish hue to it too. It's more on the smokier pink side than bright and light.
It's hard to see with the naked eye, but this lipstick has a bit of silvery flecks in it.
A lot of people assumed that it was similar to Lady gaga lipstick or Angel, but I think it's neither. If you look at the tube, the color looks almost identical to Angel, but when you swatch it it's totally different. Lady Gaga doesn't even get close to Lazy Day's color.
I think the closest match I can get with my lipsticks is Aloof from MAC (discontinued). Aloof is super sheer but Lazy Day is even more! All swatches were swatched three times on the back of my hand and you can see how sheer Lazy Day's pigmentation is.
Let's see how it swatches on the lips. It's definitely not a "stand out" pink. I had to swipe and swipe over and over again on my lips to get the color going.
Ha, sorry - I didn't have any makeup on and wasn't in the mood to take pictures with my glasses on. But as you can see it's a very subtle pink color that's not as bright or neon as Gaga or other light pink lipsticks.
The texture is extremely creamy and isn't drying at all. The only problem is the weak pigmentation. And because of that I had to pile on a lot of lipstick, which resulted in the lipstick sliding around. So when I talk or open my mouth - the lipstick would have a line of goo across my lips. :( not good.
Other than that, if you like light pinks that aren't screaming for attention - this could be a great lipstick. :)
If you like brighter, bolder colors - you should pass on this one.
