Product Review: MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

     I'm having second thoughts if I should just make a swatch post or a review about this product. Since this is my first MAC lippie, I'll base this review on my first impressions. Anyhoo, I really wanted to have this MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick a year ago when I saw gorgeous swatches of Girl About Town from GT forum. But this lemming took so long because every time I have extra money to buy makeup, I feel guilty splurging on high-end ones.

     Yes, for a cheapskate like me MAC Cosmetics are a way to high for my budget. I'm drooling over those pretty shades of lipstick from MAC whenever I pass by their counters. I'm very happy when my cousin from the US came home for a vacation. She asked me what "pasalubong" I want and without a doubt, I said MAC Girl About Town. So here it is, my first MAC lipstick in action! I Will not blabber too much because of my excitement to show you the gorgeousness of this shade ^_^

MAC Girl About Town

According to

     Girl About Town is a popular shade for a reason--it looks amazing only nearly every skin tone. It's bold, bright, and vibrant. It will add oomph and brighten your face with little else needed.

Here it is, Girl About Town on my lips under natural lighting. My apologies if the photo is a bit blurry. Pardon the messy application. Macro fail :(

MAC Girl About Town

What I like: 
  • The packaging is simple and I love that it's color black. 
  • Really pigmented, goes opaque on my lips. 
  • The texture is creamy and applies smoothly on my lips. 
  • The scent- sweet but not overpowering. 
  • It doesn't dry my lips. 
  • Lasts 6 hours on my lips. 
  • There are a batch and manufacturing date printed on it. 

What I don't like: 
  • It's a pain to remove, even if I use my trusted eye and lip makeup remover. 
  • Pricey for a cheapskate like me and for those beauties on a budget.
  • NOT Available at MAC Counters. The SA said it's only available to specific continents. (Please correct me If I'm wrong). 

Will I repurchase? Yes if there's a budget. I also want to try other shades like Russian Red, Morange, and Up The Amp.

     I give this a 5/5 rating! The perfect shade of hot pink it is. Just apply your favorite lip balm underneath so that you'll still be sure that this will not give you dry lips. And before I forgot, If you want to have this kind of pink but you're on a budget I think a good and affordable dupe is N.Y.X. Lip Cream in Addis Ababa. I made a review here, you can check it out and see the difference. 

What's your favorite MAC lipstick shade? Thanks for sharing! 

Good Times!~
