mac girl about town lipstick review

This lipstick has been living in my stash for a good few months now. I don’t even know why it has taken me so long to use it! Every time I look at it, I end up putting it away and using a red or purple shade instead..naughty Emmy.

Now I have actually gotten round to wearing it I must say I am in love and it is definitely my go to lipstick whenever I am off out! I am slightly annoyed at myself for not picking it up before, that will teach me for not using things straightaway.

MAC ‘Girl About Town’ lipstick – £15.50

Girl About Town is a bright fuchsia pink that really brightens up any makeup look. If you was to search for an ‘in your face pink’ then this is exactly the colour that would appear. It is so vibrant and makes me smile every time I wear it. I find that it is more of a going out colour, although it is quite a nice statement paired with neutral makeup in the daytime too.


This is an amplified finish which explains the boldness in colour, even after the first swipe it is nice and bold. It glides on like a dream without pulling at all and doesn’t bleed or smudge, which is a bonus especially after a few Malibu and Coke’s.


I prefer this on me with a tan a lot more than when my skin was paler, as it looked completely off colour. I have to apologise for my hair in this photo too, this weather has made it go all sorts of crazy! MAC amazes me again, as always!
