005: Lined with MAC Soar. 

I know what you’re all thinking and yes you are right. I am a rubbish blogger and I need a slap on the wrist and maybe one across the face too. *inserts long defensive statement about how I was so busy and never found the time to blog* 

But I am back, and I am back with a holy grail in the form of Mac Soar. Yes you will have all heard about it thanks to the whole Kylie Jenner hype and most of you will have tried to order one and failed as MAC was always out of stock! Similar to me until a few weeks ago when I managed to get hold of it and ordered 3 (yes 3!!) as well as making my mum and 5 friends order 1 each (MAC should totally pay me for advertising and enabling people!) 

I will upload a better swatch tomorrow 🙂

On to details of the product itself- Soar is a gorgeous rosey brown shade, the perfect my lips but better colour that can be used by itself or with a lipstick (I use Mac Brave) on top to give the illusion of fuller lips. It is drying on the lips and does drag which is a bit of a pain but this can be avoided by prepping and exfoliating the lips beforehand. The drying formula also adds to the longetivity of the lip pencil as it literally does not budge once applied and it lasts up to 8 hours wearing it without eating and 4 hours with eating and drinking without touchups- as someone whose lipstick comes off as soon as they walk out of the door, this sort of lasting power is amazing! 

Priced at £12.50, it is not the cheapest lip pencil out there and for those of you looking for cheaper alternatives,  Rimmel’s Eastend Snob is a great dupe. If it is within your budget-do not wait and order one now (use the code MACTREAT at checkout for free next day delivery and a sample) whilst it’s still in stock. I can assure you that this will be one purchase you won’t regret and will fast become one of your firm favourites! 

As you can see in the picture, after falling in love with Soar I ordered MAC lip pencils in the shades Spice and Whirl as well as Velvet Teddy lipstick- I am the ultimate Kylie wannabe. 

Have you tried Soar or any other MAC lip pencils?? I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments! 

Peace and love xo
