Since starting StyleByCat, however, I've found that I've become braver in trying new looks that stray outside of my comfort zone. One of my recent favorites has been fuchsia. Thanks to you guys, I actually went out on a dinner date with fuchsia lips...and it was great!
I've become obsessed now. For the past 3 weeks, I've been on the hunt for a MAC lipstick called Girl About Town. Not for the faint of heart, Girl About Town is a rich, highly-pigmented shade that's a hybrid between fuchsia and hot pink. Velvety in finish, it's an incredible, mega-watt color that can nearly be described as neon.
After being disappointed time and again as it's been sold out everywhere for weeks, I was finally able to get my hands on a tube today after the MAC store in Berkeley received a new shipment.
The formula is extremely smooth, applying effortlessly and evenly straight from the tube. It feels weightless and moisturizing on my lips and pleasantly has the faintest scent of vanilla cream soda.
While these photos aren't bad, they don't quite capture the impact and intensity of the true color in real life. My lips are still poppin' though, don't you agree? I promise this won't be one of those impulse-buy lipsticks that end up collecting dust at the bottom of my train case in 3 weeks. So much fun! I want to wear it every day!
