MAC Hey Sailor Collection Sail La Vie Lipstick

I love MAC's lipsticks. I know, I know. MAC is a huge Worldwide brand name and has a massive cult following. It's pricey, it's elite in it's own right and it has a certain stereotype attached to it in regards to customers. And yes, I cannot deny, the first purchase I made (a match-master foundation in shade 4.0) was a little bit biased by all the hype associated with MAC. But I don't regret joining on the MAC bandwagon at all and love all of the items I have.

The thing I have the most of from MAC is lipsticks. I now have seven MAC lipsticks and I adore each and every one of them. And last week when this new 'Hey Sailor!' collection came out I was smitten! I love anything nautical, being the daughter of a Navy man and with several nautical themed tattoos, it was obvious I was going to be unable to resist the seduction from this new collection. The packaging is more my style to many of the collections MAC have had over the years plus it's fun and great for summer.

The new 'Hey Sailor!' collection has eyeshadows, pigment loose powders, lipsticks, mascara, kohl pencils, lipglass, liquid lip balm, lip pencils, powder, blush and nail lacquer! The only thing I really buy from MAC now is lipsticks so the first thing I looked at was of course, the lipsticks! The new collection holds four lipstick shades in 'Salute!', 'Catch a Sailor!', 'Sail La Vie!' and 'Red Racer!' and the one which caught my eye the most was 'Sail La Vie' which is a red with slight undertones of peach and orange. And so off I went and bought it!

As always with any MAC lipstick I purchase, I wasn't disappointed when this landed on my doorstep! I was so excited and happy to open it and it really lived up to my expectations! The packaging is perfect and I'm in love with the shade itself. Admittedly, it isn't as orange based as it appears on the MAC website swatch, but it's still a lovely shade and I find it very similar to my 'Lady Danger' red lipstick, also from MAC! I would love to add a couple more to my collection from this new nautical themed, beautifully packaged collection, but we shall see!

  5. I've always wanted to buy Mac because I always end up wearing my friends Mac make up when I see her and it's so nice! I adore lipsticks too but can't bring myself to spend £14.00 on a lipstick as I'm on a tight budget and I like to buy lot's. But I should go for quality rather than quantity really! But nothing bad about trial and error right? But that shade is gorgeous and really makes me want to get it, ahh! xo
