MAC Lipstick || Lusturing Review+Swatches

Hey Beauties...
If you read my What I Got For Christmas post, you may remember that I received two MAC lipsticks, one of which was MACs Lustering. This one Oli bought for me, which I picked out myself. I hadn't really seen much or heard much about this shade before which is one reason I was drawn to it! Another reason was because I wanted a nice light colour, as most of my MAC lipsticks are fairly bold.

Lustering is a Luster finish which means it is very lightweight, with a nice gloss and shine to it. Luster finishes help keeps the lips hydrated and smooth, so perfect for those colder months when our lips seem to be a little dry. 

The application of this lipstick is more like a balm then a lipstick. The colour pay off I would say is a nice pigmentation but does come out quite sheer due to the amount of gloss in the product. Unfortunately this does mean that the lasting power of this lipstick isn't as long as some of my other MAC lipsticks, I found that eating and drinking can remove almost all the product. However that doesn't really bother me too much if I'm honest.

As you can see the colour is a gorgeous sweet baby pink, and I found it to be slightly buildable too. I think this colour would suit anyone and has quickly become my 'go-to' lip colour if I'm unsure what to wear.

Overall I really do love this shade and the finish and highly recommend it! I think it is a perfect everyday shade.

Have you tried Lustering before? What are your thoughts on it? Leave me a comment below.

Much Love
