We all love a MAC limited edition lippie, and their Hey, Sailor! collection for this summer is no exception! As well as the lipsticks, we’re also eyeing the nail laquers, in this season’s hottest shades of cherry red and tippex white…

First things first… the packaging is a real eye-catcher! The graphic blue and white stripes are the perfect addition to a summer makeup kit – nautical, fresh and fun – with a hint of luxury from the gold lettering. We chose the shade Sail La Vie, an orange-toned red. As much as we love Morange, it’s sometimes hard to be taken seriously when you’re rocking a tangerine lip, so we’re excited to see a mid orange-red that is daring enough to count as orange, but wearable enough to look chic! It really is that tone right between red and orange, so it flatters the skin by making it appear warmer. It’s a satin finish, which we found to be between a matte and crème, so it’s really smooth and comfortable to wear, as oppose to some of the mattes which can feel quite tight and drying. It’s also more flattering on the lips, as it gives an ever-so-slight sheen, which makes them look less flat than matte formulas. As always, it’s got MAC’s signature vanilla scent, which matches perfectly with Lipcote!

As you can tell, we love this lippie! The colour is cool but wearable, and the packaging is so gorgeous we want to whip it out for touch-ups (unnecessary when you’re wearing Lipcote)!
