So last week MAC had finally launched their limited edition Giambattista Valli lipsticks in Australia! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been waiting for the pink one ever since I saw it online from other countries that had got it early. The packaging is super cute and I couldn’t say no to an all pink lippie! ๐Ÿ˜›


The packaging is just gorgeous! It’s a classic MACย box packaging but with a flower background and GIambattista and MAC logo ๐Ÿ™‚


On the top of the packaging and the bottom of the lipstick there’s the sticker of the shade’s name ๐Ÿ™‚ I have chosen the colour “Bianca B”


And inside the box packaging is super cute too! It’s got a pink interior ๐Ÿ˜› It’s such a beautiful shade of pastel pink!


Viola! The lipstick. I love looking at a freshly cut lipstick, it makes me feel bad for using it because it won’t look like that no more haha ๐Ÿ˜› For the price breakdown, it costs $40 which is $4 more than a regular lipstick for $36 and you get 3g of product which is a standard size!


There are also other shades in this collection,ย 5 in total including the pink ๐Ÿ™‚ There is also aย soft orange, raspberry pink, classic blue red and a blackberry shade! I think all these shades are wearable, however some of the colours most people would have something similar in their kits. So I gave the other colours a pass since there are many dupes for them! ๐Ÿ˜› Though I don’t have a shade similar to Bianca B, so it was another reason why I got it.


It’s swatch time!! ๐Ÿ™‚ This lipstick has a matte finish, so it can look drying once applied on skin. You can see that above ๐Ÿ™‚ On the left side I had appliedย 2 layersย on top. On the right I had appliedย only 1 layer. So this lipstick is buildable in colour ๐Ÿ˜› As you can see, this shade of pink is quite bright, it’s like a pastel pink leaning towards the white side. It definitely looks more lighter than how it looks on the bullet! Quite misleading ๐Ÿ˜› But I don’t mind hehe.


This is how the colour looks directly applied on my bare lips! You can see it’s highlighting my lip lines haha. I do know it won’t look so bad with some lip balm underneath, then have some lip liner to help smooth out the lip lines. You can see that difference below ๐Ÿ™‚


This is a look I wore with Bianca B ๐Ÿ™‚ The lips look so much better after prepping it instead of applying the lipstick directly on bare lips! It’s such a gorgeous shade and for sure it will look even more amazing on tanned and dark skin ladies because the shade will stand out ๐Ÿ™‚


If you are wondering about my skin tone, I am “Punjab” in NARS Sheer glow, “4” in Armani Luminous Silk, “20” in Chanel Perfection Lumiere, and NC25 in MAC Pro Longwear foundation ๐Ÿ™‚ I stay this shade during most of the seasons unless I get tanned in Summer which I usually go a shade darker ๐Ÿ™‚


Hope you guys like my little short post on the lipstick ๐Ÿ™‚ When I went to purchase this from the MAC counter at David Jones, city counter, all the other shades were sold out except for this one and the red! ๐Ÿ˜›
