MAC Salute! is a neutral peach with an amplified finish. Amplified finishes from MAC are by far one of my favorites.
…but this shade in particular? Not one of my favorites. This shade and my skintone are not BFF’s and to be honest, I had high hopes. Really high hopes.
It’s yellow based and I’m yellow and well this shade makes me feel socially awkward.
But I swatched it for you anyway! It does my lips no favors. Every imperfection, every line, it all shows. It’s a little sheerer than I expected, but a mess on me nevertheless.
This shade is better suited for someone of a cooler skintone, definitely not good for ladies like me with yellow or golden undertones. I am very against forcing a lipstick to work for you when clearly it does not. No liner, prayer or skin bleach could help me.
You can pick this lipstick from the Hey Sailor Collection for $15.50 at maccosmetics.com
Really, you know what this lipstick made me feel like…. you guessed it, Tyrone Biggums. If by chance you don’t know who I am talking about, it’s just best you walk on by….
