When I was in MAC the other day I was drawn over to the lipstick stand and I was randomly picking up lipsticks and swatching away on my hand until my hand looked like I had some sort of new illness that left pink, nude and coral swatches on your skin! I noticed that I picked up the same lipstick 3 times and swatched it - that only means one thing.. I have to buy it, so I did. Anyway, as you've probably guessed that lipstick was Politely Pink which is a lustre finish.
I didn't realise until I got home and put it on how much of a colour match it was to my actual lip colour. The base colour is pretty similar to my lips but with it being a lustre finish is has the most beautiful shine to it that can duplicate the effect of a lipgloss. I really hate wearing lipgloss to work just because I can't have it on me to top it up and my hair always gets caught and it's really annoying when I can't just pop to the toilet to fix it so I tend to go without. However, this lipstick gives the sheen that I would want from a lipgloss all in a lipstick!
I know some people are really put off MAC lipsticks because they are forever increasing in price but I think they're nice for the staple colours in your collection! I really love this lipstick and I would recommend everyone to go and have a swatch or even have a look at the lustre range if you are after the lipgloss effect!
