Sweet! Every time I wear syrup, strangers stop to ask me what it is. Wait — that didn’t come out right. No, not corn syrup or maple syrup, although those are also great. I’m referring to pretty pink MAC Syrup ($14.50), a permanent member of the MAC Lustre Lipstick line.
Described as a cloudy pink on the MAC website, this hydrating, cool-toned lippie hides a hint of purple behind its shiny finish. I dig the way it looks, but my lips love the way it feels — not too thick nor thin. And it’s a great value, too, thanks to its versatility. It looks great with everything from dramatic smokey eyes to conservative everyday looks.
Syrup on my lips; MAC Blushbaby on my cheeks
As befits the name, Syrup sweetens the heck out of looks, especially eye looks featuring purple, blue, gray and/or black. I also like to pair it with pink blushes like MAC Blushbaby, Dollymix, Pink Swoon and Well Dressed.
Don’t worry about cavities, though, because it won’t cause them. 🙂 This Syrup just has a mild vanilla taste and scent.
