A cool-toned pink lipstick with a Satin finish. In my opinion, 'Snob' by MAC cosmetics is a true barbie pink colour and it has been on my wishlist of MAC lipsticks for quite some time. I finally caved and purchased this lipstick full priced at the makeup counter on a random shopping day out in which purchasing a lipstick was definitley not on the agender at all seeing that I have a hoard of lipstick back at home already.
I have always been a huge fan of pink lipsticks anyway so it wasn't difficult for this one to slip into my collection accidently. This is my first Satin finish lipstick by mac so the formulation was a bit on the unfamiliar territory for me. It is pigmented and easy to apply although it can be a little drying and cling onto any existing dry patches you may have, so I advise you to exfoliate your lips well before using this lippie. When I swatched it on my hand, it was an amazing pretty pink colour but I never realised it was so barbie pink on my lips. The wear was comfortable and it didnt feather or fade that quickly nor did it dry out my lips like some lipsticks do.
However, one thing that you have to be aware of, is that it does have a tendancy to make your teeth appear yellow-toned so if you have an issue with that, then maybe this shade isn't right for it. I also found that it made my skintone look more dull and yellow which I am suprised myself as to how much difference a liptick shade could make.

I apologise for the poor quality of the picture of my face shot. I actually forgotten my camera for the day so I had to resort to using my iPhone 5 but hope you guys can see the look that I was going for. I opted for a subtle smokey eye using my Narsissist palette which I thought was perfect for that muted eye look that looks both classy and wedding guest appropriate. The shadows were also very easy to blend and complimented my skintone nicely. The contoured look worked wonders for the professionl photos taken as it emphasised on my facial features making it more multi-dimentional. I didn't bother with lashes and it was quite hot and humid and I didn't want to worry about my lashes lifting or coming off. I did choose to use a convenient lipstain which was great as there were alot of drinking and eatting involved so matte lips were a definite no no. My make-up lasted throughout the day and night thanks to my rimmel stay matte powder and I really had a great time.
What kind of look do you usually go for when being a wedding guest?
