(L-R) Gosh Shocking Coral, Mac Watch Me Simmer ( both taken in natural daylight)
I'm sure many of you have seen and read about Mac's Watch me simmer from the new Shop, Shop, Cook, Cook collection. It seems to be the lipstick to have from that collection and being a sucker for coral's and for Mac I got sucked into the 'hype' ( I don't like that word but can't think of a better way to phrase it) of this lipstick. Also the packaging had something to do with it, whenever there is different/limited edition packaging I'm easily swayed! Now this lipstick like Viva Glam Nicki seems to wear differently on everyone, on some people this lipstick seems very orange/bright coral where as on me it leans more towards a pinky coral.
Now me being someone who doesn't waver from their comfort zone, when I was trying this lipstick on I did think I had something similar. It looked very similar to Gosh- Shocking Coral a lipstick I wore a lot on my holiday last summer, holiday is normally the time I feel my bravest and wear corals rather than pinks ha ha ! When I compared them together they looked very similar, keeping in mind my lips are pink as it is, which is why on me both of these lipsticks turn up more pinky coral than orange and in my eyes look so similar. The Gosh lipsticks are £6.49 and Shocking Coral is in the Velvet touch range, so if you are struggling to get your hands on Mac's Watch me simmer or want something similar I recommend checking it out at your nearest superdrug :) What do you think?
