This the first mac lipstick I have ever bought and I am so glad I did. I love mac for there simple yet classy packaging. This lipstick is in the shade 'Lovelorn' and it is a beautiful mid tone blue based pink, the first swatch above is one swipe and the second is the colour built up quite a bit. Although this shade is in a lustre finish it actually gives a pretty good colour pay off. The shade lasts about 2-3 hours on me and fades to a light pink, it's not the longest lasting lipstick but I love it so much I don't mind re-applying! I think this shade would suit most people and if you have been thinking about getting it I would highly recommend you do!
