I've tried many lipsticks and most just never seem to stay more than a couple of hours on my lips - MAC lipstick does! I am a fan of the satin finish, plumful and brave are my favourite colours. I wore brave a lovely natural colour on my wedding day and only needed one touch up. There are so many shades and finishes you are bound to find one that suits you. The bullet shaped casing is simple, and I love the form. The only downside is in NZ this lipstick is much more expensive than it is when I first purchased in the UK! It does last though so I would still repurchase.
