Reds, berries, plums and vampy lips are always on trend whenever we reach Autumn and Winter. I've always envied girls who can pull off a bright red lip, as I find it very glamorous. I don't know if it's because of my skin tone, but I find most reds a bit too OTT on me. However, I finally found the perfect red/berry lipstick.
Mac Hot Tahiti is a beautiful "soft reddish coral", as described by Mac. I'd personally describe it more as a reddish / berry toned lipstick. It's got a glaze finish, so it's fairly sheer, but still with a great colour pay off.
The formula is very soft, smooth and glossy. It goes on creamy and feels very moisturising on the lips. It's not as long lasting as other finishes like satin or matte, for example, but like any other reddish lip, it leaves a subtle stain on the lips, which means there's no need to reapply it that often.
I think Hot Tahiti will suit the majority of skin tones and it's a great lipstick to go for, especially if you are, like me, a bit scared of full on reds.
