MAC Sounds Like Noise

May 10, 2013

 MAC's recent collaboration with Paramore's Hayley Williams flew off the (virtual) shelves and from what I can tell, it's been a huge hit. I perused the items and found myself drawn towards 'Sounds Like Noise'. There was no way I could've pulled off wearing the coral eyeshadow, as pretty as it looked in the pan and swatches I'd seen. I don't have any matte lipsticks from MAC but I've only heard good things, so with that in mind, I had to get my hands on the Hayley Williams lipstick.

It's very pigmented, the kind of play-down-the-rest-of-your-makeup type pigmented, the colour is incredible, so summery and bright!  I didn't find it to be overly drying as I know matte formulation lipsticks can be, in fact I was quite surprised at how easy it was to apply. I know matte lipsticks can be a bad choice if you have chapped lips, but I've not had a problem! I think that may be down to my regular use of my LUSH lip scrub to keep my lips soft, as well as always carrying around at least one lip balm!
What do you think of the MAC Hayley Williams collection? Did you buy anything?

  2. It looks incredible on you! I'm a little gutted that I didn't pick it up now, I just wasn't attracted to 'orange lipstick' but now I've seen it in action it looks lovely. x

  6. That shade is stunning! I don't think I'd ever be bold enough to wear it though, I prefer a nude pink shade. x

    1. It's so pigmented too, it's amazing! I'd say go for it, as nice as nude shades are, with a simple outfit it would really work x

    1. Thank you! Do it :) If it looks a bit too bright, mix it with a nude shade for a more subtle orange? x
