Whether I have made it obvious on here (ClaireySweetie) or not, I am someone that loves to both support and take part in initiatives, sporting events, bakes and sales of specific products etc. that raise money for important causes, whether that be big national/international campaigns, or locally with friends, family and colleagues. I am a big fan of MAC makeup, but rather than go mad in stores, I am quite selective with what I purchase, selecting products that I truly feel will be a welcome addition to my collection. Of course that doesn’t mean I don’t do the odd spontaneous buy, but you get what I mean.
Long time readers of my blog will be familiar with my two posts that I wrote last year about/involving Caitlyn Jenner, first of her announcement to transition (here), and secondly of the Vanity Fair cover that she revealed her new image (here). While we could argue all day about her privileged decent into becoming a woman, the awareness she has raised for the transgender community is huge and cannot be disputed, and her collaborating with MAC, continues the message of support.
“Caitlyn Jenner has fearlessly shared her transition with the world. Her new M.A.C lipstick, Finally Free, champions all ages, all races and all sexes. The full RRP less VAT will benefit the transgender community in the UK” -MAC website.
While I am a sucker for purchasing lipstick (aren’t we all!), Finally Free -a mid-toned rosey nude- is beautiful and I would argue a real asset to any collection. As a matte lip lover, the cremesheen formula makes for a welcome change and leaves lips with a gorgeous (erm,) sheen to them upon application. I have tried the lipstick with and without the additional of lip liner and while I personally prefer to wear lipstick with liner, it works just as well without.
It’s always a risk purchasing online exclusives when you haven’t seen them before, but reviews of MAC’s Finally Free lipstick put me at ease, and for those familiar with the various MAC formulas, should be comfortable with what they are purchasing. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Finally Free and have no doubt it’ll become an every day staple nude.
