Mac Cut a caper Lipstick

Cut a caper is one of those limited edition Mac lipsticks that people go crazy over and want to get their hands on.. No? Okay just me then! As soon as I heard this was being realised in the Heavenly collection I knew that it was going to be mine, I mean it is totally necessary to have about 6 similar sheer peach lip products in a collection right?

On the mac website it is described as a mid-tone peachy pink which I agree with and is a Lustre finish. I know people find this finish quite drying but usually I find it ok as long as I put a bit of lip balm on first however with Cut A Caper I did find it drying you can see in the photos it clings to dryness and it felt like I had a matte lipstick on ( not my favourite finish) but I’m going to put this down to the HORRENDOUS weather we are having as my lips don’t know if its summer or winter. One thing I did not realise with this lipstick before buying it is how sheer it is, to achieve the colour pay off in this photo I had to put about 3 layers on but once on it is a lovely colour. Overall if I am being totally honest with myself I did not need this lipstick and I prefer Mac’s Blossom Culture if I am going for a peach lip. I will wear this lipstick obviously as it is a gorgeous colour but I think there are ones very similar and less drying on the market :) Surprisingly it is still available on the website as this was tipped as a sell out but Mac have increased their prices to £14, cheeky sausages!

Have any of you been sucked into the Cut a Caper hype? What do you think of it?
