MAC Syrup Lipstick

I will begin this review on a positive note by saying that this lipstick has a very nice vanilla scent like all MAC lipsticks. Also, as you can see from the picture below, the lipstick is a gorgeous medium true pink colour in the tube. The problem is that when I apply it to my lips it turns to a horrible purplish-pink colour with orangey undertones. I have very pale cool-toned skin and when I apply Syrup it makes my whole complexion look dull and tired. In addition to its unflattering colour, Syrup is much too dark of a colour for me.  This lipstick, which has a Lustre finish, is also very drying on the lips even when applied on top of lip balm. Its staying-power is also lacking as the colour becomes undetectable after about 30 minutes of wear. Needless to say, I regret this purchase from MAC. I purchased Syrup because I was looking for a lipstick that would give my lips a pretty, natural-looking rosy flush. The associate at MAC recommended this colour for me. I don’t think I will be purchasing another lipstick anytime soon.
My rating: 1/5
