Review: MAC Girl About Town

A couple of weeks ago I received some delightful news that I was one of five winners of Amy's (The Pretty Vain) blog giveaway! I was over the moon when I saw the congratulations email - I hardly ever win anything so when I do I'm ecstatic, this is probably the second or third giveaway I've ever won. So I would just like to say a big THANK YOU to Amy! The amazing prize of this giveaway was the choice of any permanent MAC lipstick that you desired. It was a difficult choice, but I ended up choosing Girl About Town as it has been high on my wishlist for quite some time now, oh and you can never have too many bright pink lipsticks right?!

MAC's Girl About Town has had so much hype within the beauty community for quite some time now, it has also been on my wishlist for the same amount of time. There's just something about bright pink lipsticks that make me want to have them!

Photobucket

Girl About Town is an amplified creme lipstick. MAC amplified lipsticks are quite creamy and shiny, and can come in different finishes (e.g iridescent shimmer or a pearl finish). Amplified lipsticks also have the same colour payoff as the matte and satin finishes. 

Photobucket

Segregating away from the average bright fuchsia shade, Girl About Town is the perfect mixture of a deep pink and a blue toned magenta shade. Depending on the lighting it can also be mistaken for a berry colour.

Photobucket

Being an Amplified Creme lipstick it is obviously extremely creamy and effortlessly glides onto the lips. Because it is such a bold and eye-catching shade, it is important for you to make sure your lips are in tip top condition. This means exfoliated and moisturised 110%!

I do find that it can be a little slippery on the lips so I like to wear it on top of a natural lip liner, otherwise I need to constantly check in a mirror to make sure I don't have lipstick on my chin!

For me, Girl About Town is the perfect for the party season and I cannot wait to wear this gorgeous colour when headed out! This is certainly going to become one of my favourites for the summer season. 

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you're all having a lovely day! If you haven't already entered my giveaway - do so now! Only 4 days left until the contest will end! Also, I would just like to say a big thank you for all your support throughout this year. I wish each and every one of you a happy new year - stay safe and have fun!
