MAC Ellie Goulding Lipstick in 'Only You'Saturday, 2 January 2016 19:52
For the longest time I have lusted over the limited edition lipsticks on MAC's website, but I could never quite justify taking the plunge and buying one. Whenever I did decide to buy one, they'd usually have sold out! I was very lucky this week to find that the Ellie Goulding lipsticks were available and I quickly decided to order one.
I'm a huge Ellie Goulding fan and her new line for MAC features lipsticks, glosses, eye shadow palettes and more. I can safely say that everything looks beautiful and the shade names follow themes from her songs, which I just love!
There were two lipstick shades to choose from- a beautiful warm pink shade called 'Without Your Love' and a gorgeous muted coral called 'Only You'. I plumped for the latter shade as I thought a muted coral would be a safer bet for a wearable everyday shade. I wasn't disappointed! It looks like quite an opaque, bold coral in the tube but translates as a sheer wash of colour on the lips. The Cremesheen finish means it glides on easily and feels comfortable to wear. As it is fairly sheer, it doesn't last all day, but this shouldn't be a problem with regular touch-ups.
The packaging is simply beautiful. The box it came in was black with the rose gold Ellie Goulding logo and the inside of the box was metallic rose gold. The tube itself follows the same theme, with a glossy black finish. The highlight for me however is the embossed Ellie Goulding logo on the lipstick itself- it makes an already special product feel that little bit more luxurious!
You can purchase this gorgeous lipstick from MAC's website here for £17. I'm a huge MAC lipstick fan to begin with, but I think this special little lipstick has taken my love to a whole new level!
