Review: MAC Lightly Ripe Lipstick

This is a review for one of the lipsticks in MAC's August 22nd Cult of Cherry collection, Lightly Ripe. Of course, like 99% of what MAC brings out, this is LE.

Formula: This is in MAC's lustre formula, sheer but with two swipes you can get the full color. It's not the most moisterizing formula, still quite drying. I recommend exfoliating your lips first, since otherwise it'll feel very gritty on lips with the dead skin cells balling up.

Color: MAC Describes this as 'sheer midtone pink' which I suppose is good. However, it's definetly a warm pink, which I really like. It gives me healthy regular looking lips for the times when I wake up and my lips are pale.

Comparisions: In my opinion, this is the warmer version of MAC Party Mate, also LE from Mac's May Naughty Nauticals colection. While they're very mlbb, Party Mate is cooler and has silver sparkles, while Lightly ripe is rosier, berrier and has faint golden shimmer.

Packaging: This comes in MAC's regular gunmetal bullet packaging, which clicks on securely with a snap. It's not the most ingenious or fancy but it's nice and simple.

Price: 14.00 (or 15.50 now with tax) is not bad at all considering more and more lipsticks are 18-20s and even 34$ (YSL...).

Scent: This is scented lightly with Vanilla, like most MAC lip products. I can't smell it unless I'm turning my lips up to sniff though :P.

Lasting Ability: This easily lasts a few hours on me, however, due to the sheer nature it will need to be reapplied after eating.

How it looks on me:
