Toronto’s Pearson airport (for any curious non-Canadians) is basically the main hub for travel in Canada. I fly through here changing planes practically anytime I travel. I was returning from British Columbia last week when I discovered a MAC store had recently opened there. Not having a MAC store anywhere near where I live, I was ridiculously excited by this! lol.
I spent half an hour of what would have been an otherwise tedious stopover chatting with the very nice and friendly sales assistants and trying on lipsticks. In the end, I was good and only left with one new lipstick (mainly because I had recently placed an online order which I correctly suspected was waiting for me upon returning home). I discovered Syrup, a super pretty Lustre lipstick, which is my favourite type of finish out of all the MAC lipsticks.
(Sorry about the creepy clawlikeness of my hand in this swatch pic)
MAC describes this shade as “cloudy pink”. I would say its a cool toned, purpley-pink. It looks a little more mauvey-pink on me, but I think it might be one of those shades that looks more pink or more purple depending on your skin tone. It has that sheer, glossy, hydrating finish that I love about MAC’s Lustres. It feels so nice on the lips.
So…what was waiting for me when I returned home? Check in with me again for my next post to see swatches and reviews of some MAC limited edition lip products! 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by ❤
