MAC Lipstick in Syrup: Review + Swatches!

Today I'm sharing one of my go-to everyday lipsticks this season, MAC Syrup.  I've heard people talk about this color for years, but for some reason have completely ignored it during MAC visits until now.

I picked up this color a few weeks ago and have found it is a lovely medium pink with a touch of plum to it, making it perfect for fall!

Syrup has a lustre finish, which I like because it is a little sheer and has a sheen to it.

This lipstick is about the same level of darkness as my natural lip color, so it gives a really natural effect while still polishing my everyday look.  It also makes my lips look nice and hydrated, which I like!

MAC lipsticks retail for $15 and can be purchased wherever MAC cosmetics are sold.  Remember: if you bring six empty plastic MAC containers (compacts, bottles, etc.) to any MAC location, you can swap for a FREE lipstick through their Back To MAC recycling program!  This is how I have snagged about half of the MAC lipsticks I own! :)

The verdict: I love this, and totally recommend it!  What is your go-to lipstick these days?

  1. Gorgeous colour!:)

  2. I've been loving all the lipstick posts Allison! Keep up the great work :)

  3. Macs brick o la is my go to. And when I want to amp it up I layer nars scandal on top. For my medium skin tone, it's my go to combo to look put together. Scandal is for when I'm running out the door.

    I feel like syrup would be beautiful with a dark eye as opposed to a nude lip as it gives natual color without washing you out

  4. Syrup is my favorite lipstick of all time, and I don't feel like it gets nearly enough attention. So glad you're giving it a moment in the spotlight!

  5. I love Syrup! It's also Hilary Duff's favorite lipstick too!
