MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

Yep, another MAC Lippie. This time, in the form of the brightest lipstick in my entire collection. MAC's Girl About Town is a lipstick I've heard so much about, so when I seen it at the CCO York for £10, I grabbed it without even really looking at it. 

Girl About Town is a deep, fuchsia pink and is an Amplified Creme Formula, which means it's super pigmented and opaque in just one swipe. This is an absolutely beautiful lipstick with a gorgeous, creamy formula, and have seen it look amazing on so many people, but as I very rarely wear lipsticks this bright, I'm finding it really hard to get used to. I've worn it twice so far (both evenings), and got a shock every time I looked in the mirror. I know it sounds daft, but I'm the same with bright reds. I think I can cope with a bright red/pink if they're really sheer, but because this is so amplified it's just scary. I always feel like I don't suit them, so I shy away and go for more subtle pinks/corals. Saying that, give me a bright orange and I'm all over it. Strange. I'm not gonna give up on it though, as I think I need to conquer my fears! Both times I've used this, I've noticed that the lasting power is fantastic, it only really fades when eating/drinking and even then it does so evenly and leaves a nice stain behind.

What do you think of Girl About Town?
