MAC | Raspberry Swirl Lipstick

Last week, I popped into my local MAC store in the hope of buying a new lipstick. I was browsing the shades and swatching them on the back of my hand when the sales assistant appeared. I told her I was looking for a pinky nude shade and explained that I already had a few MAC lipsticks. We swatched a few more and it was a decision between Lovelorn or Raspberry Swirl. She ended up putting Raspberry Swirl on my lips, which is a bright blue toned pink and straight away I really liked it. So I ended up buying it (I know what your all thinking, this doesn't look like a 'nude' shade and you would be right!)
But it wasn't until I got back to the car and whipped my mirror out to have a look that I decided that I actually wasn't that keen on it and seeing as my parking ticket had nearly expired and I didn't want to put any more money in the machine, I drove off with the lipstick still in hand.
When I arrived home, I took the lipstick out and started to try out different ways to wear it. I have found that lightly dabbing it on the lips and applying a nude lip gloss gives a much better finish then swiping it all over. Wearing it alone and all over my lips makes it look very pink and barbie like which I'm not a fan of.
Raspberry Swirl is described as a 'white blue pink' with a cremesheen finish. I really do like MACs cremesheen lipsticks but with this one however I found it quite drying and it does make your teeth look a bit yellow which I'm not too keen on.
So, I am still in two minds whether to keep it and make it work or sell it? Hmm.. decisions decisions!?

Raspberry Swirl is from the Baking Beauties collection and costs £14. You can view the lipstick and collection here :)

Do you own Raspberry Swirl?
