Lip Swatch: MAC So Scarlet Lipstick

Hi everyone!! My first exam is in the end of the week, and if you have an idea of what med-school is like, well one week of revision is not enough! And that is why I haven't been posting much lately, since I've been studying last week. Although two weeks of work isn't enough either, I'm trying my best lol. Thank you everyone for the good luck wishes! I hope this week goes well for you all. Here's a lip swatch of one of the most gorgeous lipsticks I've ever had my lips on! :) xx


I've regretted not buying So Scarlet lipstick when the MAC Cult of Cherry collection was out, so when I finally found it for a good price on eBay I decided to grab it. MAC So Scarlet an amazing red lipstick. A dark (but not too dark!) blue-based red lipstick, with a creamy amplified creme finish. It is gorgeous, probably one of the best red lipsticks in my collection (along with Russian Red of-course)!

For a product picture, a swatch, and some ramblings, read the rest of the post!




Do you have this lipstick?
Would you wear this shade? ♥


And oh, I just had a peek at the swatches of the upcoming MAC in Lillyland collection! (and I'm dying inside lol) There's just so many pretty stuff coming out, and I'll have trouble choosing! I really want to get Resort Life lipgelee, and 3 cremeblend blushes: So Sweet So Easy, Joie-de-Vivre and Florida - and you can even use these on your lips! But MAC costs precious money too which is why I'm a bit :( about it. Ah well. The new MAC collection doesn't come out in the UK for another 2 weeks so I hope I'll be able to save a bit.

Have any of you checked out the MAC in Lillyland collection yet? ♥

  1. I do like the creme blushes from the Lilyland collection.

    My interest in makeup just started last year so I only have like 2 lipsticks at the moment and about 5 lipglosses. All of them are like pale pink/nude.

    I like this colour on you...I think I might just venture out of my comfort zone and try out a darker colour. :)

  9. Really pretty, but not sure I'd dare to wear that colour myself... I usually got for nudes or pale pinks :)

  10. @Goldyrocks- Nudes and pale pinks are the safest colours to wear~! I usually go for those myself, but I do wear reds for special occasions :)

  15. WOW that lipstick is pretty...

    I've been DYING to get the new MAC in Lillyland blushes, but right now I'm so incredibly broke I can't even afford the school supplies I so desperately need (printmaking paper costs 200 dollars a roll...yikes!).

    Luckily, I should be getting some money in around the 20th. When I do get around to purchasing, I so wanna get Joie de Vivre, Florida, and Optimistic Orange.
