M.A.C Frost Lipstick - Angel Review

It has only been a month since I introduced my very first MAC lipstick into my life and now I already have another one oops!  The first one Creme Cup which you can read about HERE is a shade I really really like.  Then Cohorted announced that they had a MAC lipstick that I quite liked the look of and before you know it, it had arrived.

The newest addition to my MAC Collection is Angel, a frosted lipstick, meaning it is less creamy looking on the lips I am told.  It is described as being a soft pink shade and for me, it is actually quite similar to Creme Cup.

The first time I used this lipstick I found it to be quite sheer looking, but it is one of those products which is buildable, so you can keep on applying it until you are happy with the finish. The one thing that did confuse me is that I didn't find it all that frosty, infact once on the lips, the texture was quite creamy, more so than I had been led to believe it would be. It also has a slight vanilla scent, not something I usually like in a product, I would go as far to say that it is one of those scents that I really really dislike, but within this lipstick it is tolerable and not too overpowering. 

I also like that with this lipstick you can wear with just a BB Cream or a full face of foundation, it seems to so far fit every aspect of the make-up look I choose to wear, which more often than not is a natural look.

I have mentioned that Angel is quite similar to Creme Cup and here you can see the two together with swatches. I did have photos of me actually wearing the lipstick, but deleted them instead of uploading them, so I need to get a nice sunny day to repeat the whole process.

Angel, like Creme Cup has a good wear time in it, I find it lasts around 3 hours, obviously depending on what I am doing whilst wearing it, which on the whole is really good. When I first got Angel, I wasn't totally sold on it, I didnt think it suited me or my skin tone because I have dark blonde hair and am quite fair, that said, I persevered with it and find that I actually have started to wear it more, it isn't a lipstick that would be in my top 5, but it is one of those lipsticks that I do wear and do like.

I do still have my MAC Lipstick Wishlist as before which includes:

Do you own Angel or Creme Cup or indeed any Mac Lipsticks on my wishlist?  
Are there any you recommend?


  1. I really want to try Angel as it looks so pretty! My only MAC lipstick is Hue and it is the most beautiful nude and I have struggled to find anything quite like it so I recommend you try Hue next!

  2. What a coincidence, I was literally thinking of writing a comparison review of these two lipsticks too! Absolutely love them both and you're right, they are quite similar.
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  3. Everyone raves about MAC lipsticks so much, i really need to invest in one.

  4. I bought this from Cohorted too and was SO disappointed as it highlights dry patches on my lips even if I've exfoliated. Shame as it is such a gorgeous shade x

  5. I use creme cup in my pro kit and it's such a lovely wearable shade for most - ANGEL looks absolutely gorgeous too, I have seen it before but never purchased. xx

  6. I have 8 MAC lipsticks in my collection now! Haha... Hue is lovely - but I find it doesnt necessarily suit everyone.

    My all time favourite MAC lipstick is Rebel - it's not an 'everyday' colour, unless you're happy to make a statement, but it's beautiful.

    I also bought Patisserie the other day, and I have to say, I'm slightly disappointed with it! :( Xx

  7. I did try and warn you, once you pop your Mac cherry you can't stop :)))
