MAC Toxic Tale is one of my go-to lipsticks on lazy days. It’s really easy to swipe on because of its Satin finish and creaminess. It doesn’t tug and doesn’t rest on the lines of dry, chappy lips. It’s very pigmented and has full coverage. It lasts hours and leaves a stain. It budges a little when eating/drinking. The shade is a bright coral that leans red.
I absolutely love MAC’s formula for their Mineralize Rich lipstick line. If I had to pick only one lipstick formula, it would be that, hands down. Like my first Mineralize Rich lipstick in Style Surge, Elegant Accent still boasts of its amazing hydrating formula that stays up to 6 hours. I don’t know what words to describe this lipstick except, ‘buy more’ and ‘horde’.
Since I’m about to empty my Style Surge lipstick, a coral pink shade, I have decided to pick up Elegant Accent, a warm rose shade. My favorite of the two is still Style Surge but Elegant Accent comes as a very close second.
I have found my newest favorite lipsticks! MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Style Surge wins the best lipstick ever (yet) while Apres Chic takes number two. Both are so awesome for daytime everyday wear.
They are sooo close to each other and can be considered as dupes of the other. They differ slightly in shade as Mehr leans to a neutral pink with a litttttle hint of mauve while La Raffinee is more Mauve-y pink. Also Mehr tugs a bit when applied because of its matte consistency while La Raffinee applies smoothly because of its velvety finish. Don’t be fooled though, as La Raffinee is more drying than Mehr (I can’t fathom why). I suggest applying lip balm underneath.
If you find lipsticks too thick and plain and lipglosses too sheer, sticky, and lacking ‘real’ colors, you may want to try MAC’s Sheen Supreme line. It offers semi-opaque coverage, perfect for a little casual and light lip colour that’s STILL fun and pretty.
