In theory, a great idea. In practice, sore lips and subsequently, poor application here n there (apologies!).
I don’t talk much about MAC here but I do appreciate the incredible variety that MAC delivers. The Back To MAC program arouses a lot of interest in MAC lipsticks so here is some inspiration! Additionally, five solid minutes of me tilting my head like a lunatic. Enjoy ;)
Arm swatches will appear here soon
