Pretty Fall Lips / MAC Syrup Lipstick Review and Swatches






Hi darlings! There is something so magical and special about fall and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite seasons. I just love the cozy evenings spent in front of the fireplace, leafs changing colors, the chilly mornings and the irresistible smell of my favorite Chai Tea Latte! <3 Beauty wise, autumn is also very exciting for me because it’s the time of the year when I change my lipsticks and nail polishes from brights to more nude, natural or berry tones. As for this season, I can definitely see myself wearing MAC Syrup (£15.00 / $15) loads because it is a gorgeous shade and if you fancy treating yourself with a new lipstick I’d say this one would be a great choice for autumn! :)

I picked up Syrup last winter after a quick trip to MAC. As I was playing around with lots of different shades I pulled Syrup out, thinking it won’t be anything special. Once I swatched it, however, I instantly knew I need it in my life. MAC describe Syrup as ‘cloudy pink’ and I’d say it is a gorgeous, muted mauve pink with slight berry tones to it. The lovely cool hues of this shade make it right up my street. As my skin has pink undertones to it, Syrup really compliments it beautifully. My mum’s skin though is more on the warmer side and Syrup looks fab on her too so if you have yellow tones – fear not! :) What I adore about this shade is that it is really versatile. It is perfect for an everyday wear with very minimal eye makeup on or you can wear it with a more dramatic smokey eye and it would still look amazing.

Being a Lustre lipstick, Syrup has a lovely formula and finish. It looks very shiny on the lips but it is not as pigmented as the lipsticks from the other MAC lines. I really don’t mind that though because apart from the pretty glossy finish I get, Syrup feels relatively hydrating on my lips. Now I am someone with super dry lips and I still need to put some lip balm underneath the lipstick so that it feels comfortable enough but it is so much better than many other lippies from MAC. If you are not a dry lip sufferer (I am madly jealous of you haha), I think you will definitely appreciate how soft and moisturizing this product feels on (many of my friends with normal lips swear by the formula). The good thing about Syrup is that it could be build up so if you are into more intense colors you can certainly achieve that with this little gem. I love that this lippie applies like dream. It is really creamy, glides on smoothly and completely it’s faff-free. Also, the product doesn’t accentuate any dry patches we may have on the lips, which is perfect. Syrup has a decent staying power and I need to touch up around the second hour mark. This may not sound like a lot to you but having in mind that I use balm underneath, I think it’s okay. :)

So if you are the type of girl who loves going with the whole nude / berry lips kind of trend for the colder months, Syrup is a great shade to add in your collection. It is a stunning color, which I feel like would suit everyone; it has a lovely creamy formula and gorgeous glossy finish! I absolutely love it and it is definitely becoming a staple in my makeup bag. I honestly can’t recommend this sweet as syrup lippie enough and I urge you to go swatch it asap! <3

Have you tried Syrup before? Which is your go-to fall lipstick shade?

Lots of love,

  1. Gorgeous! I've seen quite a few people talk about this shade. I think it would make a great MLBB for me, but a lovely daily shade all year round nonetheless! I love the lustre formula too!

  9. That's a really lovely color! I can see myself wearing it as well, specially now in the fall!! =D I love how you're honest in your reviews and always also mention the less good things that might make a product a "no-go" for someone!

  13. I'm not a huge lipstick person but I've actually had this one on my wishlist for a while-- it's one I always almost get, but never actually do because I talk myself out of it with how little I wear proper lipsticks! This post definitely makes me want to cave and finally pick it up though!

  20. I keep seeing reviews popping up on Syrup so I will have to go check it out the next time I go to the mall. It looks like such a stunning colour for Fall, and if it won't accentuate dry patches on the lips (aren't dry lips fun?) then it's definitely worth looking at!

  21. Syrup is a must-have! I just might get this with my Back 2 MAC stash :D

  22. I really like how it looks! Personally I don't really like pink shades of lipstick for me, but this one is some kind of old rose which reminds me of Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial in a way :) I think I might try to find this one haha!

    Lovely review as always :)

  25. Your reviews are always so thorough, really great :D And I can totally imagine this colour on you, it's adorable. I can quite imagine that as a colour for the winter-spring transition as well, it reminds me a bit of pink buds.
    And yeah, Chai time! I do need to go out and get me some on the next shopping trip!

  26. This is such a pretty colour. I thought I had enough Mac lipsticks, but apparently not! I've just repurchased creme cup and I was actually thinking I would like something a little darker, so maybe this is the perfect option!? xx
