It's only a matter of days to go until the wedding day now and as the countdown begins I feel like some secrets can slightly be revealed. Although most of the big details like my dress, venue and catering will be shown after, I wanted to reveal the one thing that doesn't need to be a secret, the lipstick! I finally bought the one lipstick I've wanted since I heard of MAC... Angel!
Angel is part of the 'frost' finish range which means it is a medium pigmentation with a shimmering gloss finish. I already own three MAC lipsticks and although they are all beautiful, they've never been the 'perfect' colour. For years I've been on the search for a light pink, not nude, not orange toned, lipstick that complimented any look but suited me. I'd heard of Angel many years ago as it was one of those trends that went around the blogosphere and at the time I just didn't get round to trying it.
During my bridal makeup trial, my makeup artist had all the mac lipsticks I could dream of trying and I instantly asked for Angel. This was the perfect bridal colour to me as it was natural, creamy and wouldn't ever look too bold. I love that it has a gloss finish as it doesn't dry your lips out which is a big no for photographs!
The colour is a muted pink and would suit anyone but as a blonde with very fair skin, it looks perfect for the 'my lips but better' or 'nude pink'. Although MAC lipsticks have become rather expensive as the years have gone on (I swear they used to be £12) and now retail for £16.50 [LINK], I knew I had to buy this so I could top up my lipstick on my wedding day.
I had a Debenhams voucher to use up so it was actually a little cheaper anyway. I now feel like I have the perfect lipstick for my wedding, and if you can't have your favourite lipstick then, when can you?
