MAC Twig


Go back a couple of years, and I'd have been your girl for all things MAC lipsticks, but after recently visiting a counter, it seems that I may have been out of the loop for longer than I thought, as there were a fair few shades that I'm ashamed to say, I'd never heard of.

My latest MAC addition, Twig, is a lovely tone for this time of year and perfect if you're looking for something with a 90's vibe, which seems to be very much the trend right now.

Perfectly easy to wear for both day and night, I imagine Twig would fall between the natural, slightly more mature "your lips but better" shades and those vampy tones that are always huge during Autumn. It's described by MAC as a soft muted Brownish Pink, and that's pretty much spot on.

It's probably not the best match for my skin tone, and if I'm completely honest, it doesn't do much in terms of complimenting the Whiteness of my teeth, but for days when I want to wear something a little out of my comfort zone of the usual Peachy hues, but don't want to rock anything too bold, this is a really great option.

If like myself, you're really into lipsticks, you'll know that Kylie Jenner lips are a huge thing at the moment and completely to my surprise, Mike actually commented "are you wearing a Kylie Jenner lip?" this afternoon, and do you know what? I guess I kind of am- unintentionally, I swear! It's very similar to the kinds of shades she's been wearing with her over lined look and if you're on the hunt for something similar but haven't quite found the right one for you, this could be worth trying.

Satin in formula, Twig is creamy on the lips and has great longevity. It's super pigmented and so doesn't need any building up and over the day, it fades to a nice natural tone on the lips, so it doesn't need too much attention.

Available from MAC and at counters in the likes of House of Fraser and Selfridges, Twig costs £15.50.

  1. At the moment I am loving MAC lipsticks. I recently purchased Kinda Sexy, Creme in your Coffee, and Patisserie but after seeing Twig I wished I would have purchased that one as well.
    Thanks for introducing and reviewing this one!

  12. I am OBSESSED with MAC lipsticks (I have an ever growing collection of them) and Twig is one of my favorite one at the moment. I also love wearing it on top of MAC Faux (which is also a great one on its own)! xo
