Favorite Lipsticks – MAC Brick-O-La

Looking for a lipstick that adds a pop of colour, but doesn’t completely take over your look? Ladies and gentlemen I present to you MAC Brick-o-la.

MAC has a number of different finishes in their lipstick range. I love their Mattes and Cremesheens, but I also love their Amplifieds (also known as Amplified Creme) – one of which is Brick-o -la.

A beautiful brick-y (hence the name) red, this lipstick is perfect for daytime wear. It’s not a powerful red, but instead has a bit more of a brownish berry tone to it.


It’s not one of the more well known MAC lipsticks, but trust me, it’s a powerhouse. This is one of those lipsticks that is worth carrying around with you. It’s THAT good.

It work well on my medium deep skin tone. When you first apply it has quite a glossy finish that then gradually moves to be a bit more of a satin matte finish. The colour stays on your lips for aaages.

In New Zealand, where I live, MAC lipsticks retail at $40.

I’ve inluded a couple of pics of me wearing Brick-o-la with different outfits and on different days – just so you can see a bit of a comparison.
