Hello my gorgeous ladies 😀
I know I know I have been away for quite some time and have not contributed that much to MAC madness as expected. :-/ Trust me I have been more antsy than you! But…never mind now that I am back with a bang to clog the whole of ETM, 😛 today we have another *cult* shade from the MAC lipstick stable. ^_^ Tons and tons of dupes for this shade have already been reviewed here but the real thing? Uh-huh..I had to barge in like captain planet and save the day ! *those who don’t know who he is never mind -_- * sooo… the gorgeous Girl About Town 😀 err no come back you are mistaken. :-/ I am not praising any girl. :-/ This is merely the star today. *_* MAC Girl About Town Lipstick.
What MAC Says:
MAC describes Girl About Town as a *bright blue fuchsia* in an amplified finish 🙂
990 INR *permanent collection*
My take on MAC Girl About Town Lipstick:
Well time to face the truth! Frankly I was never crazy about this color! In spite of being so hyped and raved I was definitely not lusting after it as I thought I had its dupe, Revlon lip butter Lollipop
*not IMO. Please google and see how many bloggers claim it!* but the first time I swatched it, I was blown away and decided of course it was not the dupe! Duhh -_- so well yeah I had to have this Girl About Town. 😛
The lipstick comes in a regular black MAC packaging with a silver tube and sturdy cap which makes it very easy to carry around. 🙂
The texture is of course the most popular amplified crème so extremely smooth, creamy and easy to apply without any tugging or patchiness. 🙂 It does not accentuate dryness or fine lines of lips at all and gives a creamy kissable pout. 😉
The color MAC Girl About Town is so known and famous already that I guess its futile to praise it anymore. 😛 but you know me ! so I will. 🙂 Girl About Town is apt in being described as a blue toned fuchsia, but though it sounds scary for warm skin tones I assure you I have never seen such a unique and universally suitable bright fuchsia! I have seen each and everyone rocking this shade! It totally brightens up my complexion and lends my face a happy glow. 🙂 It is just one of those essential pick-me-up shades which all of us need. 😀
MAC Girl About Town Lipstick lasts gracefully on lips for almost throughout the day and easily survives small snacks and drinks which is saying a lot since this isn’t even matte! It fades into a bright pink tint which does not look patchy or eeww and I kind of sometimes like it more than touching up. 😛 It does not dry out lips at all. 🙂
The pros of MAC Girl About Town Lipstick:
- Comes in the usual classy and travel friendly MAC packaging 🙂
- The texture is amplified finish and is smooth, creamy and soft, easily applicable without hassles.
- The color is a bright, blue based fuchsia which looks smashing on all different complexions and acts as an instant pick-me-up. 🙂
- The color lasts for 5-6 hours easily and leaves behind a hot bright pink tint on lips. 😀
- Does not dry out lips!
- Does not emphasize fine lines or dry patches of lips. 🙂
- Yummy MAC vanilla fragrance 😀
The cons of MAC Girl About Town Lipstick:
None at all ^_^ am completely smitten 🙂
My rating: 5/5 *_*
Do I recommend?
When there are soo many dupes in the market from so many brands for 1 single lipstick shade its got to be damn good right 😉 and it is. 😀 It fulfills all expectations; texture, lasting power, awesome color
and oh yes its from MAC ^_^ and for us MAC maniacs I believe that is the bottom line-ensuring that we leave even exact dupes and lust after this MAC Girl About Town Lipstick
. 😛 BTW, I accidentally stumbled across the dupe- NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Addis Ababa
! It is the same on my lips and I looked up my pics and could hardly find any discrepancy at all. 😀 Lip butter lollipop though similar is of course not the same. -_- The Inglot ones I have not tried so can’t comment!

My LOTD with MAC Girl About Town Lipstick! *in daylight without any balm or gloss*
Now that I am back, expect the rest of the month to whizz by singing MAC MAC and lusting for more 😉 Till the next post keep glued here and stay gorgeous! Mmuauhh <3ETM Edit* The lip swatches. <3 :* Inglot 69 is an exact dupe of MAC Girl About Town Lipstick. I have swatched them together. 😛 But oh well a MAC is a MAC is a MAC. 😛 Lovely review as always Agni. 🙂
