MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Hang Up

This is yet another one of my birthday present reviews that I've just gotten round to reviewing. Hang Up is a MAC Cremesheen lipstick - a dark vampy red.







The colour looks like a very deep red in the tube. I was expecting it to be a similar colour to my Rockalily Man's Ruin lipstick from the tube colour, but it's completely different. It applies dark red but soon fades to a dark pink, which I actually prefer to the usual colour. It takes only a couple of swipes of the tube to become fully opaque, it's very well pigmented.

Hang Up - just applied. It's a bit darker than this shows.

Faded Hang Up - isn't it pretty?


This lipstick seemed creamier then the usual MAC lipsticks and quite a bit thicker, without feeling too heavy. However, it didn't last anywhere near as long as my other MAC lipsticks on me. Hang Up lasts around 3 hours on me before I need to touch up, or until I eat/drink.

The texture of this lipstick is lovely. It's very creamy, and doesn't dry out my lips at all.

Overall I love this lipstick, but I wish that the wear time was a little better. It's a gorgeous dark vampy shade and perfect for more dramatic looks.

This lipstick costs £13.50 for 3 grams.

Have you tried any of the MAC cremesheen lipsticks? What did you think?

  2. This is a really gorgeous shade. It's a very flattering dark. I don't find it too "vampy" for every day. :) x

    1. I'm an NC15 too, I don't think you can go wrong with any of those! I think Diva is my favourite over Hang Up, but I've never tried Media. Diva is lovely, it lasts a lot longer than Hang Up, and it's more of a burgundy. Hang Up is a more pink, and Media is a lot like Diva but has more purple tones to it (I hope that makes sense!) I'd definitely recommend going in store and having a good look. They're all lovely, I don't think you can go wrong. :)

    1. Diva is definitely more of a classic dark red. I had a comment on my blog suggesting that you could use a purple lip liner underneath Diva to make it look more like Media if you wanted to, which is something you could do if you wanted to add more purples tones to it! I really love Diva, it's my favourite dark red that I own. :) Let me know which one you choose!
