Winter Colors: Lipstick 1: MAC Hang-up

I am in love with this rich, deep shade. It is Deep berry red with some shimmer that goes wonderfully with my skin tone, though the shimmer is undetectable on lips. This is a great color to pair with a neutral eye look.

How to wear it?
I press it on with my finger and dab it on my lips in the summer and spring for a berry stain, and layer it up in the winter for a deep berry look.
As Cremesheen lipsticks can be a little drying, it is better to layer lips with a lipbalm(10-15 min) before applying lipstick and blotting it off.

Standard black MAC packaging. Sleek bullet shape.

It goes on very creamy & doesn't feel dry on my lips. It is opaque in one swipe.

Vanilla (same as other lip products from MAC)

Staying Power:
Lasts a good 4 hours on me (w/o eating-drinking) on its own.  It leaves a nice berry stain once it fades.

Can be worn as a lip stain.
It is not drying on lips.
Do not feather around lips.
Fades with a stain soothe color remains on the lips.

Too dark for light skin tones.

Retail Price: $14

Will I repurchase: One is enough I guess
