MAC Fanfare Lipstick Review

Hello everyone!

I’m currently running on three hours of sleep, so you’ll have to bear with me if I make any misspellings or grammatical errors. This is seriously the most tired I have ever been. I feel like my brain is going numb.

Nevertheless, I wanted to get something written today. I decided writing a review would be easy enough for my incoherent brain, so today I will be sharing my thoughts on a MAC lipstick in the shade “Fanfare.” This has been a pretty popular color for a long time, and happens to be the first MAC lipstick I ever tried.

Details:

DescriptionA lipstick with hundreds of hues. The iconic product that made M·A·C famous (per MAC’s website)

Color – mid-tone yellow pink

Price – $17

Packaging:

The first aspect I’d like to discuss is the packaging. While this doesn’t have anything to do with the product itself, I think it’s an important feature to discuss. Most people in the beauty community have polarizing opinions on MAC’s lipstick packaging. I, personally, have things I both like and dislike about it. My biggest issue with the tube is that it doesn’t display the color on it. This can be frustrating for people with larger makeup collections, who have to open every lipstick to find the one they’re looking for. However, beside that drawback, I genuinely like the packaging. It’s sleek and simple.

Rating: 3.5/5

Texture/Consistency:

I don’t think I’ll be able to stress how creamy this lipstick is enough. The formula is incredibly long-lasting and moisturizing. Normally when I apply matte lipsticks I need to use a balm first. However, MAC’s “Fanfare” is a product that works entirely on its own.

Rating: 5/5

Pigmentation:

“Fanfare” is a wonderful light pink color that works perfectly no matter the season or time of day. I use it quite often with my daily makeup looks because it is so versatile.

Rating: 4.5/5

 

Consensus:

Overall, I am very pleased with MAC’s “Fanfare.” If you’re searching for a subtle, creamy lipstick to complete your daily look, I would definitely recommend giving it a try. MAC lipsticks may be a splurge, but they’re a good one. I adore them.

 

Thank you so much for reading. I’m off to sleep for a thousand years.

Sincerely,

(A very tired) Paige
