MAC Ravishing Cremesheen Lipstick

I’m quite proud of my growing MAC lipstick collection, although there will always be room for more. I noticed that my collection is largely made up of pink and nude shades, which will naturally get a lot more wear than a shocking pink. I wanted some brighter shades for the days, where a nude lipstick will just not do. My first point of call for a brighter lipstick was MAC’s Ravishing.
I love coral coloured anything, so Ravishing looked like the perfect transition shade from pink to a more summery brighter colour. Everyone loves a Cremesheen, they’re so comfortable on the lips and require little to no lip preparation prior to slicking one on. The wear time of 2-3 hours isn’t ideal, but it takes seconds to reapply.
I really love the opacity of Ravishing considering it’s a Cremesheen finish lipstick. I was expecting it to be a little more sheer. I think Ravishing’s creamy peach shade looks great against my paler skin tone, although I expect it could leave darker skin tones looking slightly washed out. I was surprised by how comfortable Ravishing is, it’s almost like wearing a lip butter, it’s just so smooth. I had seen some reviews where there’d been mention of Ravishing emphasising any imperfections on the lips, but I have to disagree. It’s the perfect lipstick for those with dry lips, as it doesn’t highlight them at all. I absolutely love this shade overall, and think it’s definitely got me wanting to try more brighter lipstick shades. I really want to try maybe Costa Chic or Vegas Volt next?!

    Vegas Volt is beautiful, definitely more orange-y. I wrote a post about it. :) I’ve been wanting to try Ravishing, as I love all things orange and coral, and now I definitely feel like I need to add it to my collection. Great post! xx

    I love the colour but I don’t like Cremesheen finishes :(


    • Gemma T

      They’re a little sift, and last for such a small amount of time :( xx

  • Wanischa S

    I just swatched this in store the other day and I thought it it looks really similar to sushi kiss.
    I used to have costa chic but for some reason I don’t reach for it as much.

  • Amber Hunter

    This is such a pretty shade! Coral is so beautiful especially for summer and it’s a wonderful transition color like you pointed out!I think you would probably like Crosswires though I’ve heard for a frost Costa Chic is very nice as well!

  • Jess

    what a perfect sheer coral!

  • MirrorOnThe Wall

    I’ve had my eye on this for ages, it is just such a beaut! The Mac where I am will only sell it as part of a kit though, which comes with a lip gloss and pencil. I wouldn’t use the gloss, and seeing as the set costs about £60 over here I’ve given it a miss!
    I can’t stop using Coral Bliss at the moment though – perfect summery day-time shade. The ones in the All About Orange collection look gorgeous too.

    This is gorgeous! I prefer the brighter MAC lipsticks, although I get less wear from them…maybe I just haven’t found my perfect nude yet…

    I have been lusting after Ravishing for weeks, but I didn’t think it would suit my fair skin… I’m glad to read that a fellow fair lady loves Ravishing. Although I want it even more now… a MAC haul is in my near future! :)
