In love with Lovelorn

MAC Lovelorn lipstick
I was already in love with MAC’s lustre finish lipsticks, but my latest find, MAC Lovelorn lipstick is totally swoon-inducing. As someone with cool, pink undertones in my skin and quite a lot of pink in my lips, I find pink lipsticks tricky. Its hard for me to find pinks that don’t look totally crazy on me, with something like MAC’s Angel being one of the few exceptions.

Lovelorn is cryptically described as an “emotive blue-pink” (um, what colour is “emotive”?). It’s basically a light, cool-toned pink with slightly mauvey undertones that looks very natural on fair skin, which is really hard to find.

  5. It’s so funny you saw “emotive” because I had to look up a MAC blush in Well dressed and they described it as “immaculate pink.”

  7. I’ve not heard of Lovelorn but I’m not too into pink lipsticks, I just don’t find them that flattering on me. But I with your colouring, I can imagine this would be lovely!

  8. Very pretty! I find it really hard to pull of blue toned pinks though so I like to stick to mauvey shades. This colour may have swayed me 😘

  11. Ooh that’s pretty! Emotive obviously means mauve. I doubt I’ll be able to pull this one off, but I love it!
