A couple of weeks ago, I shared a recent haul with you lovelies, and one of the items I had just got my hands on was this gorgeous lipstick from Mac.
I'd actually never heard of the shade Craving before, so I was really excited to try it out when I stumbled upon it while browsing online.
Described by Mac as 'a burst of plum', for me Craving is more of a dusky berry/plummy pink. It's really creamy and applies evenly, wearing for several hours without drying out the lips. It's an Amplified Creme finish, which is my favourite Mac formula, for this reason.
This is a highly pigmented lipstick, meaning one slick is enough to give you an opaque layer of colour, and for me it's just the perfect every-day colour for Winter. I do love a bright lip, but sometimes they can be so much hassle to maintain throughout the day, especially if you're at work, and while I like nudes, they don't tend to suit me. Craving is a fantastic in-between sort of colour, being a muted version of my beloved bold berry shades.
Here it is swatched on my hand. I would say it comes out slightly duskier than it appears in the photo.
I've been finding myself reaching for this shade on almost a daily basis lately, making it a great purchase and for now, my favourite Mac lipstick for the colder months.
What's your favourite Mac shade for this time of year?
