MAC All Fired Up Lipstick

MAC All Fired Up MAC All Fired Up Lipstick

A little while ago I was extremely lucky and won give away held by the lovely Julie over at Raining Cake, thank you so much Julie! One of the items I received was a MAC Lipstick in the shade 'All Fired Up' which at the time was one that I hadn't really heard much about. Being still quite a novice to MAC I was extremely excited and couldn't wait to try it out, particularly because it was a matte finish which was one of the finishes by MAC that I was really quite keen on trying having only ever really delved into lustre finishes.

All Fired Up is a retro matte finish and is described as a bright fuchsia which I think fits it perfectly. In the image above the exact brightness of this shade has failed to come across a bit which is a shame however there is nothing to stop you swatching this in store to see just how bright and indeed beautiful it is. I would say that All Fired Up leans towards a more red tone fuchsia rather than a blue tone which adds some overall warmth to my complexion. For me because this is a matte lipstick I had to exfoliate my lips and prep them with a bit of lip balm beforehand because my lips are always a bit on the dry side. In terms of longevity I found that this lipstick remained in place for a good number of hours, I'd say roughly four or so and even then there was a stain left behind which seemed to wear relatively evenly.

This lipstick is slightly drying but it's something that I can more than cope with and like I said before with a bit of lip balm beforehand you're pretty much covered. I'll be honest and say that deep down this would not have been a shade I would have picked for myself (because I'm a complete wuss and pick safe shades) however I'm super glad that I was able to try it as I'm so incredibly fond of it and now find myself wanting to try a few more matte shades from MAC; any recommendations?

Once again thank you so much to Julie for this lipstick! If you haven't checked out her blog before then do so, it is lovely!

    1. Thank you Ana. It's a lovely shade, a lot bolder than I would normally go for but you can easily mute it down xx

  2. Oooh it looks so pretty on you Amy. It looks a lot more wearable on the lips than it does in the bullet, well maybe less bright at least :D xx

  7. This is such a pretty color! Im always hesitant to try out fuchsia lipsticks because I just think that I'm way to warm toned for them but this seems like a really wearable option.
