Where Have You Been All My Life? MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Crosswires
For someone who has been addicted to MAC lipstick for about 20 years (yes, I’m that old), I am always a bit surprised to find MAC lipsticks that I haven’t owned at one time or another. For some reason, I have never noticed Crosswires. I’m kind of sad that it took this look for us to be introduced because I am in lurv!
This is one of the most perfect lipstick colours I’ve ever owned. I love corals and pinks and this to me is the best of both worlds! It is one of those lipsticks that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it on my lips – oh yes, come home to mama indeed!Crosswires caught my attention when I saw Estee on Essie Button talk about it. After her video, I had it on my list of must-investigate. The other week when I was looking at the All About Orange collection at the counter, I wasn’t having any luck with the other lipsticks and remembered Crosswires. I’m so glad I remembered!
During that shopping expedition I also picked up Royal Sunset blush from the All about Orange collection, and I must say the lipstick and blush are a match made in makeup heaven.
I pair both the lipstick and blush with bronze on the eyes and voila, I’m done. I think both are very wearable and could suit many skintones. Unfortunately I think Royal Sunset is sold out (I picked up the last one at my counter for example). But Crosswires is worth a look if you’re looking for a wearable coral pink.
Have you tried Crosswires or come across the lipstick that you wished you knew about sooner?
