MAC Hot Tahiti Lipstick Review and Swatches

I want to introduce you to one of my favourite lipsticks, MAC's Hot Tahiti. It's happily part of their permanent collection and it's a glaze texture which means it's got a lot of shine to it and only a touch of colour, compared to the other MAC lipstick textures. 

Hot Tahiti is described as a soft reddish-coral. It's a sheer berry colour, a little plum, a little cranberry, a little rose, and a little wine. 

It's a very wearable shade for both warm and cool skin types. The texture, as with most glaze lipsticks, is slick and it goes on very smoothly.

It goes on sheerly but can be layered to increase the colour.

Swatched - one layer.

Swatched - multiple layers. 
Here it is on my lips:

One layer.

Multiple layers (app. three).
If you're curious but apprehensive about wearing red lipstick, this is one to try. It's very easy to wear. 

Grade: A+ (because I love love love it!)

  1. This shade suits you perfectly! Red lips are a bit bold for me but I do love MAC lipsticks
