If you're into makeup, like me, you've probably noticed how people have high expectations about every foundation they buy. It has to stay flawless all day long, feel light, yet give just the right amount of coverage. It has to blend well with your skin tone, have the right shade, and shouldn't clog your pores. When it comes to lipstick, however, it seems as if people don't really care as long as they like the color. In my opinion, they should. They really should care. Because a bad lipstick can ruin your look completely.
MY FAVORITE LIPSTICK: CANDY YUM YUM BY MAC COSMETICS!
Don't get me wrong: Color is important. After all, we all remember back in the day when teenagers used to wear dark (orange) foundation combined with a lipstick so light it looked almost white, don't we? Thank whoever's up there (or down below) we've moved on from that.
But even more important than color, is how it feels and how well it stays on. You don't want your lipstick to be too creamy, because the cremier the lipstick the shittier it is. A creamy lipstick usually don't stay in place for long. What you do want, is a harder lipstick. But not too hard - you shouldn't have to use force to get a hint of color. It should be somewhere in between: creamy, but not too creamy, and hard, but not too hard. It should be just hard enough to actually stay in place, and just creamy enough that it feels comfortable and easy putting it on.
I've tried close to everything, and I keep going back to MAC every time. There's just something about MAC that I feel like I don't get anywhere else.
