Hands Up for MAC Crosswires

Another lipstick?? Gosh, what can I say..I love lipsticks. I should probably change my blog name to!

haha.What do you think?

So there are so many bright lipsticks out there, but this one is quite different.

It's bright, but not quite. - HEY! that rhymes. :)

I know I reviewed this months ago on this blog, but I will dedicate this post for this particular lipstick- Say hello to..... Ms. MAC Crosswires.

I wore her(MAC Crosswires, YES she is a girl!) for three consecutive days already and got loads of compliments on it. Compliments are always good. :) In fact, I went to a MAC counter to purchase the Viva Glam lipglasses(Cyndi and gaga) and one girl asked me what lipstick I was wearing. I answered "Crosswires" and the girl looked confused and asked what brand it is. I replied "Oh..MAC!" Then, she bought two MAC Crosswires.

I do not know if it's just me, but I haven't heard anyone rave about this lipstick.

Hello, it's gorgeous!
MAC Crosswires on the left and MAC Viva Glam Cyndi on the right.

Is this a dupe? I think so.

MAC Crosswires is just glossier and has more coral and pink and less red. I love them both.
It is coral, it is pink with a golden sheen, pigmented and best of all it is a cremesheen. Crosswires is not too bright like Show Orchid, Impassioned, or Vegas Volt, but still it has that bright shade that I'm looking for. It is a cremesheen, so it has that creamy look that I love because my lips won't look dry at all. It does not wash out your face, but instead it lights up even if you put the most natural looking make-up - just like what I always do.
I love these kinds of lipsticks because I'am a neutral girl, so a bright lipstick will give my face a little somethin' somethin'. :)

Here is a photo of a bare-faced girl. No make-up at all, messy hair with MAC Crosswires lipstick.
Yes, I included a shot with my glasses on. :) it worth the rave? What is your favorite bright lipstick?
