For my birthday in May my friend Joanne bought me two products from the MAC Hey Sailor collection. I haven’t had a chance to review these for you since I got them so I’ve finally made the time to. I couldn’t believe Joanne had been so kind and I was over the moon.
Firstly, I have to say my favourite thing about this collection is the packaging. Blue is my favourite colour so it’s always going to be a winner with me, but it really is great. I got a lipstick and a lip liner, which match perfectly. The Lipliner is a Pro Longwear in ‘Saunter’ and the Lipgloss is ‘Orange Tempera’. The lipliner is very nude and the lipgloss appears much darker in the packaging than it actually is.
The lipliner would be the perfect shade to match MAC lipstick in Creme D’Nude or Myth, after swatching the liner for the purpose of this blog, I had to really scrub to get it to come off my wrist, which just shows how long wearing it really is. The lipgloss is nude in colour and has a thick consistency. It is what I’d describe as a heavy gloss; the sort your hair would get stuck in and messy when windy, and the type you know you are wearing. I really love the colour of the gloss and the two products match perfectly.
If you’re going to wear this lipgloss, make sure your lips are well conditioned without any cracks, as this lipgloss shows up every imperfection on your lips. I think I would use this gloss on top of my favourite Creme D’ Nude, just to add another dimension.
