Review: MAC Reel Sexy Lipstick.

I spied this lipstick in the MAC store in Glasgow a few weeks ago and just needed it instantly. The queue was massive and I wasn’t sure if I should be buying more from MAC as I had just bought some things from the Hello Sailor collection, but I couldn’t get this lipstick out of my head. 
In the end, Jordan said to me if I really wanted it then I should buy it (my boyfriend is the worst) and I did and I haven’t looked back. 
Reel Sexy is from the Reel Sexy collection, it’s an Amplified finish and is described as a light, bright coral. I already have the ‘Watch Me Simmer’ lipstick from this collection and it’s also an Amplified finish. Reel Sexy is the most beautiful coral lipstick that I own, it has the right amount of warm tones and is so flattered. It’s highly pigmented whilst still creamy and moisturising, and although it’s rather bright, the way I apply it is to tap it on my lips to get a little less colour so it’s just a hint of coral.

I absolutely love this collection, I have two of the lipsticks, the Magenta blush*, Lightscapade MSF and Private Screen Cremesheen Glass*. I may review more of these in the coming weeks, but for now I have to say that if you can get your hands on Reel Sexy (it’s sold out on MACs website) then you absolutely must! 

What do you think of Reel Sexy?

  • I love this colour. Been searching for a ‘coral’ in the MAC range and was swaying towards ‘Lady Danger’ but this looks a lot lighter & brighter. Perfect <3
