For those who've never tried MAC lipsticks and have heard of their distinct scent, yes, they do smell like vanilla cupcakes. Ngghh.

My one and only MAC lipstick is finally getting some screen time on my blog. This light warm peach-coral is a cremesheen formula called Sunny Seoul. I confess that the cute name is what prompted me to get it. 

Other than the name, I thought the color would work well on my skin tone and hair color at the time (black-brown) but it seems to look slightly odd with my bleached hair now. Or I might just be overthinking it.

Because it has white/silver shimmers one would think the texture to be gritty but that isn't the case here. The shimmers don't compromise the "creme" texture of it. In fact I don't feel the shimmers at all. The lipstick is indeed creamy but a little draggy and tiny bit waxy in my opinion.

It stays on for at least 2-3 hours with light (conscientious) eating and occasional drinking, it is a cream. I found that my lips tended to get drier as the hours passed. According to reviews this seems to be the case with this particular formula of MAC.

Here I am wearing it with a straight winged liner and again tons of highlighter. I only tapped the lipstick and then blotted a little to make it look little more natural. 

Compared to the swatch on my hand it appears a little lighter on the lips when applied full-on even before blotting. I quite like the slight sheen it gives making my lips seem moisturized and soft.

It retails for around Php 1000 here ($23 - $24 depending on the exchange rate and where you get it), a big amount when compared to the US price (~$17) as is the case with most imports. So I suggest buying online from sellers or personal shoppers.

That concludes my review. Have you tried any MAC lipsticks? What are your thoughts on MAC cremesheen lipsticks?

  6. What a beautiful shade! I love MAC and wear their lipsticks more often than any other. I haven't tried this particular shade yet, but really want to, as rosy shades are usually my best bet when it comes to pinks. I just bought MAC's Party Line for the first time a few weeks ago and am smitten with it. If you like pink with just a hint of burgundy in it, I highly recommend that shade.

    Big hugs & many thanks for your lovely comment on my "I woke up like this" post today. Have an awesome weekend!

  7. I think Sunny Seoul would be super matchy-matchy with your current hair! Hahaha :)) I've always wanted to try this shade, but already have a tooooooooon of lipsticks, so I'd rather shell out the money on a foundation. :)

  12. Still looks pretty weird I think but I'll take that compliment! Hahaha. The only light pink that I really liked on my lips was this Watershine one from Maybelline. The name escapes me...

  13. This looks jeje bright on me :[ But it looks good on you, even in this hair color (yes, you are overthinking it.) I used to be a fan of cremesheens but I like color so much now, so I'm matte all the way :D
