I've found the perfect bold pink lipstick. It's called 'All Fired Up' and it's a retro matte lipstick from MAC. It has the perfect amount of warm yellow tones to flatter my pale skin. I'm not a huge fan of blue-toned lipsticks (reds or pinks) as they just wash me out and make me look ill. All Fired Up looks like a reddy-pink on most people. On myself I think it's a true bright fuchsia, (see photos below) but what do you think?
As someone who is addicted to nudes and mauve-pink lipsticks, All Fired Up is very 'out there' for me. It's one I'll be saving for nights out and pairing with simple eye makeup. Maybe this one also calls for an all black outfit; which shouldn't be difficult for me as 90% of my wardrobe is black. A bold lipstick can save you from a bad hair day and make a no-effort day look more put together.
I've read a lot of reviews about this lipstick, most people find it tricky to apply and a little drying but I'm glad to say I haven't had either problem. Of course it's not as easy to slap on your lips as a lustre finish in a natural colour, but with a bit of patience it goes on well. It has the potential to reveal dry cracked lips in the winter but during the warmer months I'm not finding it drying at all.
My MAC lipstick stash is growing. Have you added any bold or daring colours to your collection?
