MAC Raspberry Swirl Lipstick


When I saw that there was a lipstick called “Raspberry Swirl” being released in MAC’s Baking Beauties collection, I knew I would purchase it before I even saw it. Why? Because it’s the name of a Tori Amos song, of course! Since this lipstick is currently restocked on MAC’s website, I thought this would be a good time to show some comparisons and an overall review.

Raspberry Swirl is a cremesheen formula, so it is very creamy and soft. I love cremesheen lipsticks, and my HG lipstick is in this formula (Creme d’ Nude). Raspberry Swirl is easy to apply and glides on the lips; it is very creamy and comfortable to wear.


The color is unique compared to other lipsticks I have. It is a cool-toned, milky pink, described as a “light white blue pink”. A lot of people have compared this to MAC’s Saint Germain, but I don’t have that color, so I can’t compare! Temptalia claims that SG is “a touch purpler”. While I have several cool-toned pinks, the milkiness of this one sets it apart from other shades that I have. It is wearable, which some milky shades are more difficult to pull off.

RS2This lasts for a few hours on me and like any lipstick lasts longer with a lip liner. I would actually recommend wearing this with a lip liner since it is so opaque.

As for the color, this is totally my kind of pink! It’s girly, feminine, and just plain pretty!
