When I heard that Mac were releasing a Star Trek collection I just had to check it out! I looked at the fantastic range of out of this world makeup and I decided to buy the LLAP (live long and prosper) lipstick. I knew a lot of other people (particularly girly Trekkies) would be interested in the product as well, so I have written a helpful Mac LLAP review.
I would describe the colour as a shimmery rose gold/bronze. Mac describes the lipstick as a frost which means it has a sparkly finish to it. The lipstick isn't as pigmented as some other Mac products but I still really like the colour on its own or as a layering colour. Initially I was worried this shade would look too cold on my pale skin but once I applied it I actually thought it worked well and created a really pretty Autumn/Winter look.
Mac are famed for their top quality products, so I had high expectations for how this lipstick would wear and I wasn't disappointed. As soon as I applied the product it felt very moisturising and creamy. This product is fairly long lasting and didn't smudge even without lip-liner.
As Autumn is now upon us, frosty bronze colours are coming back into fashion and this lipstick is perfectly suited for the season. I would wear this lipstick with either bronze or warm pink eye-shadows, reflecting the autumnal colours of nature. Team this with a pink blush and you're ready for a pumpkin spice latte and a leaf fight!
Let me know in the comments what you think of LLAP or any of the other beauty products in the Mac Star Trek collection, as I would love to hear your views.
