Hi Everyone! I was in Helsinki over the weekend and had accumulated enough empties for a Back To Mac (there's no Mac counter where I live, boo) so I was delighted to pick this baby up. I must say it wouldn't be a colour I would usually go for, but I thought why not try something different when it's for free? I'm trying to break away from the nudes a bit and be a bit braver with my lip colours.
Crosswires is a cremesheen formula, which I really like as it's not too drying and generally easy to wear. I found photographing this quite a challenge, the colour kinda changes in different lights and I can't quite put my finger on what it even is. Mac describe it as a "clean pinky orange". When I first tried it on my lips, to me it looked neon pink, but I guess that's just because I don't often do "coloured" lips haha. In the pictures below it came out a lot more sheer looking than I thought. It also looks more orangey in the bullet, but comes off more pinky on the lips. It has the classic vanilla scent that all Mac lip products do, which I love.
Please excuse the state of my hair, I was not having a good selfie-day today haha. I think this a perfect spring/summer shade, I'll probably be wearing it more so just dabbed on the lips with my fingers for a more subtle stain.
Have you tried Crosswires? What's your favourite springtime lip colour?
Much Love xxx
