MAC Cremesheen Speak Louder | Lipstick Review

MAC SPEAK LOUDER | Lipstick Review

Sometimes people and blog readers asking me what lipstick I wear and the answer is that it's either MAC Speak Louder or MAC Lustering - both are really similar to each other. 

As I have been pretty clueless about make up until I started blogging and watching YouTube videos, I never knew what lipstick shade suited my asian skin tone. I used to go for red lipstick which never looked right on my yellow complexion but I could never pin point why.

I just wanted red lipstick because it was seemingly a "classic" colour to go for, I thought I can't possibly go wrong with a classic! Turns out the red just drew attention to how yellow I actually am... not a good look.

After trial and error, I came to the conclusion that the shade that best suits my skin tone was a fuchsia pink. I love coral and orange shades too, those work too, but not as well as fuchsia.

My latest MAC lipstick is Speak Louder which is a cremesheen formula. I have a similar one called Lustering which I would say is a sheer version of this but if I built up the colour with Lustering, I could probably achieve the same result as Speak Louder! I don't see it as a waste of money though, I'm always wearing lipstick and this seems to be my "go-to" shade!

Speak Louder looks really bright and bold on the stick but it is much softer in colour and is medium coverage upon application. MAC's cremesheen formulas are just as they say they are, creamy with a shine. It's easy to apply (unlike a matte finish) and the wear lasts a couple of hours.

This lippy can be built up for a more vibrant shade. If you like something a bit more subtle though, check out the Lustre formula range, they are light and sheer. I find MAC lipsticks a bit drying, that's the biggest downfall for me.

  10. I have the exact same skin tone and I wish I could wear red as well but I think pink definitely suits us much better. I LOVE the look of this lipstick, I might need to go and swatch this one! xx
