As a generally impatient person, I’ve never been a fan of having to buy things online because however convenient it is, waiting for things to ship and actually arrive has always been a pet peeve of mine. That being said, I have made several exceptions to this, most recently several Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks, and of course Caitlyn Jenner’s Finally Free Lipstick by MAC.
I’m a huge fan of MAC., their Pro Longwear Cream Foundation has been the only thing that I feel like honestly covers my entire face and makes me feel good about life. So naturally, when I heard that Caitlyn was getting her own MAC lipstick, I bought it the second it was available. Aptly named, Finally Free, the Caitlyn Jenner color is a fairly dark pink which almost matches my natural lip color and is a creme rather than matte (which is almost exclusively what I wear). It’s actually a really beautiful shade that goes on like a dream, and because it’s not matte doesn’t dry out my lips as much as matte lipstick tends to.
It’s not really a typical color for me, it’s described on the website as a mid-tone rosy nude (I love a good nude lipstick, but this feels more like dusky rose). But I didn’t really buy it expecting it to be a typical color for me. It still looks good, and I’m very happy with it.
Also it’s for a good cause as 100% of the proceeds go to the MAC Aids Fund Transgender Initiative! 🙂
