Review: MAC Snob Lipstick

Snob has been on my list of MAC lipsticks I need to try for a very long time now. I recently did a little MAC haul so I decided that it should finally be crossed off. Snob is described as “light neutral pink” but to be honest it's more of a lilac toned pink. It's quite a powerful shade and if worn wrong could look terrible. When I first used this I applied a full coat to my lips and I looked like a barbie doll gone wrong. 

After that experience I've come to find that the best results with this lipstick are when it is dabbed lightly on the lips and combined with a lip balm, this leaves a really pretty more subtle colour on the lips and is much more wearable. Snob also works really well if you mix it with other lipsticks, I love adding a bit on top of my favourite MAC lipstick 'Faux' as its quite a dark nude so it brightens it up a bit.

As Snob is a satin finish it is quite matte but has a bit of added sheen so is slightly less drying on the lips. I was really impressed at how long this lipstick lasted on my lips, I only had to re-apply after 4 hours and during that time I had been eating and drinking!

Have you tried snob? Do you like it or is it too Barbie doll pink for you?

  1. I agree! This lipstick wears really well. I love the colour, but I have to be carefull not too layer a lot on or it becomes too much!
