'Of Royalty' - HG Pink! ♥

This lipstick is from the new MAC Fabulous Felines collection. I got this as a Back to MAC so completely free :) It is the PERFECT pink. I normally have to tone down or warm up lipsticks with 'Myth' lipstick but 'Of Royalty' is best worn alone. It is a cremesheen formula which I normally find to be not very pigmented...however - this is very pigmented. It is the perfect baby pink colour which looks stunning with smokey eyes or just as a nice daytime girlie pink lipstick. It feels moisturising on the lips and doesn't dry them out and is very buildable if you want a more intense look - for a softer look simply dab on your lips lightly and top with a lip balm. I have warm skin with olive undertones and was initially worried that this may be too cool but it is does not have blue undertones like other MAC pink lipsticks, e.g. Snob, Saint Germain...I have heard that 'Of Royalty' is like a more pigmented version of 'Gaga' which is a lustre formula. I am going to try this with 'Underage' lipglass too as I think this would look gorgeous. I have been searching for years for my HG pink lipstick/gloss and I really do think this is it. The only downside is that it is Limited Edition which is so frustrating! I'm pretty sure that this will be very popular too so will sell out very quickly. I have previously been wearing 'All Styled Up' which is very similar to 'Of Royalty' but has more blue undertones so I needed to warm it up using 'Myth'. This was also LE...I think MAC need to make these LE lippies permanent thank you please :)

Next on my lipstick wishlist is MAC 'Impassioned'...which is a gorgeous bright pink coral. This will look stunning with understated eyes and pretty pink cheeks :)
