Review: MAC Lipstick in 'Hue'

Hi :)

I got back from holiday late yesterday so sorry I didn't post anything before now! Anyway, hope you haven't forgotten about me!! I seemed to have gained a few new followers since I've been gone which is great cos I actually thought I'd lose some!

The holiday was soooo nice, exactly what I needed, wish we could have stayed for longer! :(

Anyway, the main thing that I'm SO SO SO excited about blogging about is that at the airport on the way to Spain I made my first ever MAC purchase! I bought a lipstick in 'Hue' which is fairly raved about on youtube and blogs about being the perfect nudey pink to suit any skintone so I thought 'why not?' and picked it up for £11.85 as I was in duty free wooo :)

Sorry for the roughness of my face, no makeup on as I'm just having a post-holiday lazy day!

The first thing I noticed and LOVED was the scent of this, it's easily the nicest smelling lipstick I own. It's very sweet, reminds me a little of sweet popcorn. I know some people don't really like scented lip products but I love this, it's subtle but feels nice applied to the lips.

The packaging is sleek and compact which I love, it's going to look lovely in my makeup collection :)

The colour I'm not so in love with, it's alot more 'nude' than I thought it would be, I thought it would be slightly more pink so I'm not 100% sure if it suits me, it's slowly growing on me and I'm sure I will wear it :) I actually have been meaning to try out a more nude shade of lip colour, just hadn't planned on spending as much money to try one out! At the end of the day, I do like the colour, it's different to any of the other nudey pinks I own and I will wear it!

The formula is amazing, I love it. It feels so soft and moisturising to apply to my lips and the staying power is great. Hue is a glaze finish, but as I haven't tried any other MAC lipsticks I can't compare the finish, but I like the glaze finish looks fairly natural on the lips with a hint of subtle glitters but they're in no way over powering.

  • smells amazing
  • very moisturising
  • nice packaging
  • pigmented colour
  • a little expensive, but I think it is justifiable 
  • colour not exactly as expected, but that's my own fault for being rushed!!

Overall, I love this lipstick and I am glad I picked it up or I would be regretting it! I love the formula of this so that will definitely make me want to pick up more colours :)

Anyone have 'Hue'? Love it or loathe it? Any other must have lipstick shades from MAC? 

Thanks for reading!
