MAC Fanfare Lipstick

MAC Fanfare lipstick is the latest addiction to my collection and is one I chose from a blogger competition win. I had swatched it a few times in the Covent Garden store and decided that as I wanted it, I might as well ask for it with my win.

My growing collection of MAC lipsticks consists mainly of pinks such as Angel, Creme Cup and Viva Glam V so it is probably not that surprising that I have added Fanfare and love the look of Lovelorn, Syrup and Please Me - none of which I have bought (yet).


Fanfare is best described as being a light salmon pink shade lipstick with a slight coral undertone. You will find this lipstick in amongst those with a cremesheen finish. So texture wise it is really creamy formula which is quite smooth when applied as it glides right across your lips leaving behind a wonderful shade of pink. 


The one thing I dislike about Creme Cup as a cremesheen finish is that if you have dry patches on your lips, it clings to them, so I can only wear it or feel comfortable wearing it when my lips are in really good condition.

Texture wise Fanfare is smooth and pigmented and on me it has a staying power of around 3 hours before it begins to fade, but as with any product like this, I am one of those people who applies lipstick regularly throughout the day. During those three hours it is more than likely that I will have had copious glasses of water and probably 1-2 cups of green tea, so for a 3 hour stay, I think it is actually quite good. 


As a shade, it is one that I really really love. It looks lovely on its own or with a gloss over the top, something else from MAC which I am a bit of a sucker for. I personally feel this is a daytime lipstick and it is one I wear for work all the time, though for an evening, you could wear it as it is buildable.

Priced at £15.50 it is quite pricey in my opinion but it is a lovely lipstick and I like the shade, plus I won it and I am super chuffed with it.

  6. That's a great colour and three hours staying power is not bad at all. I think it is a bit expensive for me though.

  9. A lovely shade and a brilliant brand, but I know what you mean if your lips aren't free of dry skin lipstick can look awful especially darker shades :)

  13. MAC colours are great. I do love this one, but no lipsticks last on me more than about 20 minutes!

  14. I'd definitely steer clear of the creme based one - I have trouble finding anything to stay on my lips for more than 20 minutes!!
