MAC Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Heart Hangover on my lips
Sure, I’ll take a salty caramel, but I think I’ll pass on the chocolate-covered bacon.
It’s a big seller, you say? Really…? Who buys it? Yeah, I guess I can see it as a novelty, mixing contrasts like that. I guess that’s also what MAC had in mind with the new MAC Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Lipcremes ($17 each).
I don’t know. Something about the mix of quiet colors and bold brights just feels right to me.
LOL! No, not like chocolate and bacon. Probably more like salt and caramel.
The hushed hues in You’re Perfect Already (a neutral pale pink) and Love Long Distance (a light mauve) look like they were made with lighter lovelies in mind, while bronzed beauties and darker divas might fall in love with lush, vivid Heart Hangover (a deep purple), Dear Diary (a bright neon pink) and BOOYAH!! (a bright orange).
If you’re new to the Pro Longwear Lipcremes, you’re in luck (here’s a review)!
They’re like the MAC Amplified lipsticks, version 2.0. Creamy, moisturizing pigments with a touch of vanilla flavor and scent, and they last all day long on me, even through drinks and meals.
