MAC Saint Germain

A little while back, I said how i'd never tried a MAC Lipstick... They are now one of my favourite beauty products! 

The first 2 colours I purchased were 'safe' colours that I thought would be ideal for everyday wear (see which colours I got here) but then I spotted a few bolder colours that tickled my fancy and that's where things started getting complicated. I didn't know which ones to choose and then when I came across Saint Germain, I knew I had to have it! 

Saint Germain is a very Pale Pink colour and leaves a Matte kind of finish on your lips. I'm not one for glosses so I like this effect but you could easily apply a gloss over it for a more shimmery pink colour. I love the statement it makes when you have a natural face of makeup then bold, pale pink lips! It's bright enough to be seen but not too in your face. With the lipsticks I have so far from MAC, none of them dry my lips out unlike other makeup brands, which to me is the most important thing! It stays on for a good few hours too and even after drinking/eating, it still stays put, although a quick touch up would just liven the colour back up again! 
My overall impressions of MAC as a Brand are really good and although i'm not a passionate buyer of MAC products, the products I do own have served me well and I do look into buying more, when I have the money to do so! 

Rather than buying off MAC online though, I purchased this through Debenhams as I got 10% which made it a little cheaper and they also offer FREE DELIVERY when you are a BeautyClub member... This is saving you another £2.95 compared to the MAC site as you have to spend over £30.00 to get free delivery with them! 

Have you tried Saint Germain? What do you think of it!?
