Mac Hot Tahiti – Luscious Red for Fall!

I have always been a shy girl when it comes to wearing reds and have to admit that I got my first red lippie just last year. Yup, only after I started beauty blogging :) Well, I have bought a few since then but none of those managed to make me shed my inhibitions and wear red more frequently. But the good news is I’ve finally discovered my prefect red in Mac’s Hot Tahiti. Now if you’re like me, I say you have to try this one… there’s so much to love about this lovely lipstick! Read on…

Mac Hot Tahiti

When I saw Hot Tahiti up close for the first time, I was immediately skeptical as it looked too dark in the tube, “Not for me”…I thought. But I am so glad I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised that it looks fabulous on the lips!
Mac describes Hot Tahiti as a Soft reddish-coral but I don’t see a lot of coral here -it’s a soft rosy wine red with a moist, slightly glossy finish that makes my lips appear fuller. One swipe gives you a sheer rosy color and with a bit of layering, the color deepens into a lovely berry red to give you naturally flushed, red lips.

Several swipes

The creamy glaze formula slips on easily and doesn’t dry out my lips so I can easily skip lip balm or gloss (although it’s not as moisturizing for winter months). It really perks up my complexion and makes me feel pretty everytime I wear this color. I get an average wear time of around 2-3 hours without eating or drinking which is just fine. Also, it fades evenly leaving a nice stain.

Hot Tahiti is a natural looking easy-to-wear red that is as appropriate for office as for a night out. It’s one of those lippies that would flatter just about anyone without looking overdone. And since fall season is all about lush, berry lips, you gotta go with the red trend!
