What a Blast!

MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil* - What a Blast! - £14

I have had this lip liner lurking in my collection for a while now, unopened and unloved purely because I am not really a lip liner kind of gal! However I couldn’t deny this gorgeous shade any longer so I thought I would try it out worn all over the lips as a statement lip colour. What a Blast! is unashamedly bold with bright orangey-red tones. I received this along with Good to Go lipstick after I attended the latest MAC Masterclass earlier this year and the two products are very complimentary when worn together. On the lips they almost give you the same colour payoff however What a Blast! lip liner is a lot more opaque with a powdery-matte finish.

Bright orange-red lips are such fun way to give you a fresh spin on the classic red lips which can look a bit dark and dated, especially during the sunnier months. The consistency of this lip liner is smooth and creamy and applies nicely onto the lips, but I would definitely recommend coating them with a balm before and after to help gel the colour together. The matte finish of What a Blast! can be a bit unforgiving on dry lips so it is imperative that your lips are primed and smooth before application otherwise the dense colour will only further highlight any flakes or dry patches. This is a really lovely liner and as the name would suggest, it stayed vivid and unfaltering on my lips for ages!

Are you a fan of orange lips?

You really suit bright lips! I'm not a big fan of orange lips, but that's just because my skin is too fair for it, looks great on you though. :) x
