But anyway, I put it on and I decided to review it on here because it is one of those rare Mac products that are permanent and you can actually purchase them any time, rather than having to rush to the counter on the day of release in fear of it selling out.
Mac Hot Gossip is a cremesheen finish and is described by Mac is mid-tone pinky plum which I guess is about right. I'm not an expert on Mac lipstick finishes, but cremesheens are supposed to be more creamy than lustres I think, and Hot Gossip is definitely creamy and feels really nice on the lips. It is well pigmented and lasts for a good 2-3 hours on me or even more if I'm not eating/drinking. I love this shade, it's just so flattering and I love the subtle sheen it has.
Mac lipsticks are £13.50 and you get 3 g for your money which is the lower end of lipstick weight (most are usually 3.5 g aren't they?).
