Mac: Saint Germain

Yes. I admit i do have a bit of an addiction to lipstick-buying.
If im bored, i will buy a lipstick.
If im sad, i will buy a lipstick.
If i happen to find myself in Superdrug on my lunch break, i will buy a lipstick.
If i have a spare fiver, i will most probably buy a lipstick.
 If i have a bad day at work, i will most definitely buy a lipstick.

I have a thing for pink lipsticks in particular. Infact, most of my Mac lipstick collection is pink. And the most recent addition to this collection is "Saint Germain", carefully chosen by my mother for a Christmas present. 
Ohh, she knows me so well.

I have been wearing this non-stop since i got it. Nude-pinks are my favourite 'go to' lipsticks for everyday wear so this one has very much earned a spot in my daily make-up bag. If you're a fan of Mac, you will know that their lipsticks differ in finishes (i usually opt for the 'Creme Sheens' simply because they are more moisturising and don't dry out my lips). Saint Germain is an 'Amplified Sheen' so the lipstick is extremely pigmented. The colour goes on so well and provides a really intense 'pop' of colour that a lot of lipsticks don't - basically, one swipe of this and your lips will be PINK.AS.

[Mac's swatch off their website]

The colour is a mid-tone pink, with undertones of purple. It's such a good shade to opt for if you want your lip colour to be noticeable but not over the top. If you have tried Mac's 'Speed Dial' and liked it, then i find this one to be very similar - but with a bit of a purpley-barbie-pinkish twist :)

Me wearing "Saint Germain". It had worn off a little by this time however it does last foreverrr. It goes on quite thickly and the colour is quite obviously pink to begin with, but you can build it up for more of a statement lip if you so do wish. I promise you that if you get your mitts on this, your lips will be extremely pink and lovely :)

Whats your favourite pink lipstick?
Im open to any new suggestions..
(and i will most probably buy them next time im bored..
or sad..
or find myself in Superdrug on my lunch break..
or have a spare fiver..
or have a bad day at work..)

Would just like to add - i'm having muchos trouble with my comments at the momento with both my blog, and all of your blogs - if i don't reply then im not being ignorant - my comments boxes just do not exist right now.. :( If anyone is a computer whizz (of which i am not) then please let me know how i can fix this... in the most simple-ist of terms, please :)
