MAC Ravishing Cremesheen Lipstick Review / Swatches

I’m quite proud of my growing MAC lipstick collection, although there will always be room for more considering they have such a diverse lipstick collection, which they are constantly adding to.

I noticed that my collection is largely made up of pink and nude shades, which will naturally get a lot more wear than I would a shocking pink. I wanted some brighter shades for the days, where a nude lipstick will just not do. My first point of call for a brighter lipstick was MAC Ravishing Lipstick £17.50.

I love coral coloured anything, so MAC Cremesheen Ravishing Lipstick looked like the perfect transition shade from pink to a more summery brighter colour. Everyone loves a Cremesheen, they’re so comfortable on the lips and require little to no lip preparation prior to slicking one on.

The wear time of 2-3 hours isn’t ideal, but it takes seconds to reapply. I really love the opacity of Ravishing considering it’s a Cremesheen finish lipstick. I was expecting it to be a little more sheer.
I think MAC Ravishing creamy peach shade looks great against my paler skin tone, although I expect it could leave darker skin tones looking slightly washed out. I was surprised by how comfortable Ravishing is, it’s almost like wearing a lip butter, it’s just so smooth. If peachy tones like this aren’t flattering for your skintone, you could consider MAC Modesty Lipstick, or MAC Creme Cup lipstick.

 I had seen some reviews where there’d been mention of Ravishing emphasising any imperfections on the lips, but I have to disagree. It’s the perfect lipstick for those with dry lips, as it doesn’t highlight them at all. I absolutely love this shade overall, and think it’s definitely got me wanting to try brighter lipstick shades. I really want to try maybe Costa Chic or Vegas Volt next?! Do you have any recommendations at all?! I prefer a Cremesheen finish and pinks and coral shades…
