MAC Lip Pencil in Soar

Autumn may have just started, but I already found a perfect makeup product for my lips, one that I intend to use all season long: MAC Lip Pencil in Soar.

MAC lip pencils always guarantee a smooth and non-drying application, but I have to say that “Soar” is exceptionally creamy. It really glides on like a dream and doesn’t flake or dry out my lips like some of the drugstore lip liners tend to do. It’s pretty long lasting as well; I would say that after about 4 hours is when I usually notice that the edges are slowly becoming “blurry” (“Soar” is a “regular” lip pencil by MAC, their pro-long wear lip pencils last even longer).

“Soar” is a beautiful, neutral, mauve-y, dusty pink color. It’s definitely a bit similar to Whirl, but a bit closer to my natural lip color, which I looove. I’m convinced that this shade would look great on almost anyone. It looks beautiful on its own or when paired with pinks, nudes, soft reds or even just a regular lip-balm. It’s just one of those colors that’s highly versatile. I especially like using it with Velvet Teddy by MAC or a bit of a lip gloss/lip balm, for an everyday, natural look.

I think that my love for this lip pencil is actually becoming quite annoying. I reach for it almost every single day and refuse to use anything else. I noticed that I get like this especially when it comes to lipsticks, when I like something I just use it for weeks, nonstop until I eventually grow bored :| (I don’t see myself getting tired of this one anytime soon though ;) ). Does anyone else have the same problem?

    It looks great on you! I love the colour, its beautiful!
    Yes, I do the same – that’s why I can’t do favourites every month, I’m a total person of habit and will use the same routine for ages, until I switch completely to another routine that I use for ages!
    Though, this is a colour that can be understood why it can be used for a while! <3

    Absolutely in love with your first photo Paula! You really are such a goddess ;) Everything from your dazzling eyes to the pretty twinkly backdrop go lights to your flawless hair and make-up. A perfect showcase for the gorgeous “Soar”, you are most definitely doing MAC more than proud you babe, you :P

    It’s amazing that Soar is so dreamy to apply and really has such longevity :) And I love how it is so striking, impactful and enhancing yet at the same time has toned down, casually cool vibes about it. It looks gorgeous against your beautiful skin-tone Paula, and those eyelashes? GIRL CRUSH!

    I’m definitely the same with lipsticks, I overuse and overuse and then realise there are a ton of others I’ve forgotten all about hehe ;) Trust me! <3

    Sometimes when a prodcut gets a loooot of hype I usually avoid it lke the plague till the hype dies down lol. And so I had avoided soar for the longest time! It really is a gorgeous colour tho abd looks so amazing on you. Its on my to buy list :) one thing i did notice is the penail was pretty dry everytime i swatched it in store but that may be because they had left it open :(
