MAC – Watch Me Simmer

I’ve been lusting over ‘Watch Me Simmer’ for so long now. It was a part of the February ’12 CookMAC Special Edition Collection and is long gone from the stores now. I finally found it on Ebay for only slightly higher than retail (which is $14.50) and I knew I had to get it!

Watch Me Simmer is a bright & spicy coral shade with a pink undertone and has a super pigmented finish. It’s the perfect summer shade but I think it’ll transition well into the colder months since it will bring a pop of color to an all black outfit. It’s also very creamy but I still suggest to moisturize before applying.

What do you think about this color? My only con with this shade is, if you over apply – your lips will literally glow in the dark by how neon it can be….. therefore, apply with caution!

As with all special edition shades at MAC, once they are gone – good luck trying to find it again. So I did some research and I found a perfect dupe that also is a lot more affordable.

    This is one of my favourite summer lipstick shades!

      I have seen a few of them on Ebay recently but for about $40+ which I think is way too expensive for 1 tube of lipstick but I guess people are paying that price that’s why they are marked up so high.

        Oh wow!! Well I use Revlon lipstick which is awesome so I won’t pay as much as $40 lol but maybe they’ll bring it back for the winter or something! 🙂

    Great with your skin tone. Plus your lips are perfect plump, that helps! Lucky.
