The Find: My Favorite Hot Pink Lipstick (for Spring)

I may be getting ahead of myself, wishing for the spring during this gross winter NYC weather. However, I happened to come across my favorite hot pink lipstick while packing for Jamaica (I’ll finally be out of this weather!)

The Details

Perfectly named “Girl About Town”, this MAC lipstick is creamy, giving a bit of balance between matte and shine.

How I Used The Color

I layered my lips with the EOS moisturizer about 10 minutes before applying the lipstick. I didn’t use a liner here, but for a very sharp look, you can line with one of their Pro Longwear Lip Pencils. Otherwise, you can pretty much build the coverage as much as you like. Blotting after about 2 applications will create a sexy stain, perfect for an everyday spring look.

How Long Does The Color Last

You’ll have to re-apply ever-so-often. For me, I re-apply about every hour.

Where Can You Buy It?

MAC Cosmetics for $16.00.

    I dig Hot Pink Rage by Milani and for a matte bold pink Fuschia Fierce by Red Kiss.

      I love Milani products. I’m hoping to get them in a few reviews soon!

  • Right now I’m currently obsessing over Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks in Bauhau5 and Mother and MAC Fashion Revival. These are my go to pinks! I usually a red girl, but I’m starting to love pinks more and more!

      I need to try her liquid lipsticks. Are they drying?

      And thanks for commenting!

    Flat Out Fabulous by MAC is my first foray into hot pink.

      I love that color too. It’s more “everyday” than “Girl About Town”. -Melanie
