REVIEW: MAC Girl About Town

Hello ladies! Nothing like a good lipstick to brighten up the day, is it? Girl About Town by MAC does exactly that and more.


Hardly an unknown shade, Girl About Town is a bright blue based pink with an amplified finish which is often described as a pigmented packed formula with the comfort of a creamy formula. Sounds like a winner to me! 



A must-have for any fuschia/bright pink lovers like myself, this lipstick is super comfortable to wear and wears superb until the 6 hour mark before fading to a gorgeous even stain. I wore this to work, (yes I wear my brights to work) and it lasted so beautifully even after a meal of french fries and some frozen yogurt that I skipped my usual post-lunch touch up! I'd say it easily is one of the longest lasting lipsticks I own even though the creamy layer of sheen may transfer a bit and fade, the color is pretty much there. It doesn't particularly feel moisturizing, but it is indeed one of the most comfortable lip colors to wear I've come across because the opaque formula doesn't leave you wanting to swipe over and over so you only need a little bit. 


The coverage for this lipstick is definitely no joke my friends, it is INTENSE. Below is a single swipe swatch.


To compare Girl About Town with a few similar shades from my collection, Medora's Full Fuschia is a very close dupe except that it is matte. Luscious Signature Lipstick in Raspberry is also similar but ever so slightly warmer and a touch duller. Wet n Wild's Cherry Picking is way too warm to be a dupe while Revlon's Lovesick has similar bright blue based fuschia undertones but is too glossy and has the tiniest possible bit of sparkles in it.



All in all, this lipstick ticks all the boxes for me, and ofcourse, there is that undeniably lovely signature vanilla scent of a MAC lipstick that makes this the perfect lipstick for a "girl about town".

LOVES:
-Scent.
-Coverage.
-Comfort.
-Lasting power.
-Sturdy packaging.

DISLIKES:
-Not easily available all over Pakistan.

My Rating:

5/5: A must-have! Sure shot repurchase if I ever run out!






You can however, order this MAC lipstick and much more, via MAC Addict on Facebook if you live in Pakistan. They have the best prices! If you really want to splurge, you could shop at Alfatah or any other re-sellers of MAC in Pakistan.
