MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Dreaminess – £20
available in stores and online

I remember a time when it only cost a mere twelve English pounds and an hour of indecision to pick up a MAC lipstick. They were the days! Now their latest range of must-have shades are a cool twenty pounds which makes me wince slightly and reconsider my makeup priorities…but sadly you can’t deny that they are incredibly pretty with a beautiful consistency. Damn you MAC! The Mineralize Rich lipsticks are a whole new kettle of fish lipsticks with a 77-Mineral Moist Complex (fancy!) that nourishes the lips with maximum moisture all with a light-weight, non-sticky formula.

Dreaminess is described as a soft cool pink cream, but I think it leans more towards the mauve-purple end of the spectrum. (Think Snob lipstick but slightly pinker and more wearable!) Yes the colour is gorgeous but I think the real selling point of these Mineralize Rich lipsticks is the texture, coverage and long-wearing formula that sets them apart from the rest. The texture is creamy and glides on perfectly. The finish could be compared to a cremesheen as it leaves your lips with a near opaque colour and a glossy sheen. I applied a generous layer this morning and it lasted considerably well until lunchtime without going dry or wearing off. I love this shade a lot, in fact I don’t think I own one similar, and like the new style packaging that offers a chunkier bullet but still retains that distinct vanilla ice cream scent! Lovely.

Have you tried the MAC Mineralize Rich lipsticks?

    The name is so fitting! Love this colour so much and I'm not usually a fan of purple tones. .

    I had a similar shade in a matte form from MAC and it remains the only lipstick that I did not lose and actually ran out of. I never finish a lipstick all the way to the applicator! Anyways, I love this color and the sheen finish. Great post! I really like your blog 🙂

    Wow thanks for the review on their mineralized lipsticks! I've always been a little reluctant to try them but now after reading this I may just have to hop on over to my Mac store and try one! Thanks !:)

    this colour looks great, I have tried a few of these lipsticks and they are a pleasure to wear!

    Although its £20 (super expensive) it's well worth it, looks gorgeous on! xx

    Ooh it's lovely, perfect shade for summer. Suits you Milly!

    What a gorgeous colour! I also really like the look of the finish it gives. However, I do miss MAC lipsticks being a bit cheaper too.

    I haven't tried that range from them yet but now I think I will! And what a gorgeous shade; it really is a more wearable alternative to snob and I'll probably be checking it out.
