MAC Crosswires

August 05, 2013

I recently visited a local MAC counter with a bunch of empties to participate in the 'back2mac' scheme. I came away with a lighter bag and the lovely Crosswires.
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in 'Crosswires'* - £15

Crosswires is a cremesheen formula (one of my favourites) so it applies really easily and is moisturising too. It's a pinky/peachy coral and a little different to the shades I normally go for. I saw Estée wearing this in  a recent video, swatched it and I was sold.

One of the empties I returned was a cremesheen (creme cup) and I wore that almost daily for a good while before rationing it. Crosswires lasts well on me, I'd say a good 4 hours or so before I'd need to reapply it, unless I've been eating. I've only found the Amplified Creme formula lipsticks to last longer and Chatterbox is my go-to lipstick if I'm going out to an event and don't want to be reapplying while I'm there.

What do you think of MAC lipticks? Do you like Crosswires?

  5. This looks like a beautiful colour. I'm super impressed that you managed to empty 6 products and one of the was a lipstick. I'm ashamed to say I don't think I've ever finished a lipstick!
