Wait — did we just get our wires crossed? If that tube of hotness up there is MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Crosswires ($14.50), I think we did.


But in the best possible way. πŸ™‚

This creamy pinkish orange lippie looks faboo complementing cat eyes, and it’s been one of my favorites for years. Try it on its own, or layer it beneath peachy pinks like NARS Orgasm Lip Gloss or MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass (eight more days!).

    Books, huh? Well, I just got some RPG books (role playing games, like old school Dungeons & Dragons) based on The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher & Dragonlance (by the makers of D&D), so I want to read those. I also have to read the newest Dresden book & finish the anthology. I’d like to reread the Game of Thrones books, in anticipation for the newest one coming out & to prep for the HBO series (I have to wait for the DVDs).

    Not sure how much I’ll want to read because I have to go through & purge a ton of my books from my apt & storage anyways. I have about 2000+ (mostly sci fi & fantasy) mostly from books sales. I used to read all the time, but the last couple of years I’ve haven’t read much and I miss it.

    You have the coolest giveaways! Thanks so much.

    I prefer to use just the tube of lipstick and my middle finger. It works well if you want a semi-matte or stained look as opposed to a heavy wash of lipstick.

    I use a lip brush when precision is key, like when I were MAC Russian Red.

  200. Jessica Leigh says:

    My favorite lipstick right now is Carthage by Nars. It’s perfect for summer!

  201. amy says:

    I luuurve my Retractable lip brush from Sephora, and this lipstick would be a great companion for it ; }

  202. Caitlin says:

    This color is so hot right now… maybe even hotter than Hansel. Books wise I’m currently in bed with “Sloppy Firsts” by Megan McCafferty. I’ve read it a ga-zillion times but what can I say… its like a security blanket: happy, familiar,and a wee bit angst-y.

  205. Melody says:

    I wanted to buy this a couple of months ago but I got Ever Hip instead. I don’t think they’re anything alike! Ever Hip comes out kinda dull on me. I think my favorite lippie s Viva Glam Gaga. I just started wearing it again.

  206. Marie says:

    I really liked your article about Vancouver. I’ve been wanting to g there for years! But its so far.

    this is such a pretty color πŸ™‚ a girl can never have too many red lipsticks, right? πŸ™‚

  213. I’m just getting into makeup but I’m already sooo addicted! I spent all day watching tutorial videos, and I long for some luscious lipstick! (PS I twittered too. πŸ™‚ )

  214. Georgia says:

    My favourite lipstick is another beautiful coral – MAC Fresh Salmon. Sadly, that baby was limited edition with the Spring Colour Forecast and is on its last legs having snapped off several times (I find MAC lipsticks are the worst for lippie-snappage)…

  215. Laura says:

    Right now my favorite lipstick is the Dior Addict lipstick in Garconne, but I love MAC lipsticks too!

  216. Gwendolyn says:

  223. After your fabo review, I need this lipstick! I adore coral and have never tried this one. Two books you have to read, Karen–The Help and The Bird Sisters–they are both truly exceptional books in a different way.

    Hiya Karen…It has been a while since my last post and have missed out on so much here. I would just die without my MAC around. I so love everything about their products. I so wanted some Hello Kitty when it came out, but was not able to get out to get some. I love this color… I currently have Ruby Red and wear it for special occasions…. It is not one that I could wear everyday, but would if I could… I currently use MACs Mauve or Frost with a clear gloss, when not out glammin’ it up and trying to be subtle. It was mentioned to me though, that I should give Pink Treat Cremestick and Cultured Lipglass a try when out in DRAB… The girls think it is pretty without being too much… Anyway, hugs and hope you have a safe trip back….

  227. Sarah says:

    This would be fun on my paaaale skin

    My current favourite lipstick is Revlon Colourburst in 75 peach. So beautiful and wearable for the summer. But reds are fav for the night.

  231. Victoria says:

    I love the color. I’m more of a tinted lip balm kinda person, but this might just change my mind!

  232. Kate says:

    Yay! Giveaways!! Haha I have a Bare Escentuals lipstick in a deep berry (Berry Cordial actually) that I love!! I`m no lipstick expert but it goes on so nicely and lasts well (and natural ingredients!) plus the colour complements my skin tone so well! I`m quite pale and often have trouble finding a lip colour that doesn`t look shockingly out of place. Can`t wait to try MAC Crosswires!

  240. Analy says:

    My current favorite lipstick is Snob from MAC πŸ™‚ perfect when using colorful eyes

  241. Y. says:

    sometimes i use a lip brush…it helps to spread gloss evenly

  242. Lisa says:

    What a killer shade!

  243. Liz! says:

    Glad your weekend in Vancouver was fun!!! This shade does look quite pretty. I’m not a lipstick gal, but I just might have to swatch it the next time I’m at my MAC counter!

  244. Donna says:

    I’ve only owned two mac lip products in my life and they were both beautiful colors but I lost each of them. I’ve been so disheartened to buy new mac products because I don’t want to lose them again. I love mac lip products though.

  245. Maria says:

    I want a tube of Crosswires so badly! I hope I win.

  246. Janet says:

    My favorite lipstick right now is Ruby Woo. I really like the matte texture but I might have to try this.

  255. laura says:

    well I’m pretty much a book nerd. so I have A LOT of books I want to read, however Ill tell you the best book Ive read this summer, its a romance novel called “His Eyes” by Renee Carter and its about a successful teen who loses his sight and this girl has to take care of him, its beautifu because the book is really deep and after reading this i firmly believe we should all fall inlove with our eyes closed..Ill leave the synopsis for you guys..

    Amy Turner’s about to graduate from high school and all she wants is a job. Actually, all she wants is to find a way to pay for college. Amy certainly isn’t looking for love when she answers an ad to baby-sit a boy-she just needs the cash. But the job has a catch: The boy is blind…and he’s her age.
    Tristan Edmund may be hot, but he doesn’t want Amy’s help. Or so he thinks. After being blinded in a horse show-jumping competition, Tristan spends his days in the dark, refusing to accept his disability. Much to his annoyance, Amy bursts into his life and drags him into the light. But just as the two begin to see something in each other, Tristan’s beautiful ex-girlfriend shows up. Will the temptation be too much, or will Tristan choose the girl who really sees him.. yeah it may be a lil bit cheesy but its a must read:)

  262. Christine says:

    I always had a “Psshh whatever” attitude towards lip brushes, you know, why even bother with them? Of course one day one came with a set and I picked it up one day just for laughs, and to my shock I saw a difference in application! Now when I have the time and inclination I always use a lip brush, but if I’m on the go or in a hurry I’m not above using my lipstick straight out of the tube :-).

  270. Stephanie says:

    MAC Impassioned, although I have not been giving it enough love lately. I have become addicted to the Revlon Colorburst lipglosses. They smell so good that I am on a feel good high for 20 minutes (smells just like vanilla beans – not the sugary vanilla cookie smell of MAC). Too bad the smell does not last, though. It is gone once it goes on the lips πŸ™
