This is a big rave review and I want to nominate it to being the best peachy-coral lipstick shade of 2012. Do you have a favorite peachy lipstick?
Mac's Gotta Dash Supreme Lipstick ($14.50 - 0.12 oz.), which looks as rich and soft and as shiny as a lip gloss has the lasting staying power of a regular lipstick. Not only does it last a long time, but it also feels amazingly smooth on and remarkably moisturizing and all this without the aggravating stickiness of a lip gloss.
This has always been my biggest pet peeve about lip glosses in general. You can NOT even consider going outside when it's windy with it on because all of your freaking hair will end up on your lips, then your hair will get all gooey and tacky... Argh! It's just nasty and you end up looking plain silly while it's happening, try looking sexy with 10000 hairs stuck on your lips...No.
Gotta Dash is a medium pigmented, semi Opaque Peachy NUDE, tangerine shade. In case you wondered, it won't make you look like a corpse, the color is simply too vibrant "in person" for it to look pasty on a person. I find that most death-like nude lipsticks tend to look like skin color, and no one on the planet has tangerine color skin tone. Go to the MAC counter and just test it out (isn't shopping for makeup a lot of fun? I can spend hours just swatching at a makeup counter - and this is so off topic lol).
I've heard about this color before and have seen the swatches in the past but I've never been truly impressed. And I will tell you right now that you wont be impressed with my photo's either.
But listen to me, this color looks 10000 times better in person. It's one of those unfortunate shades that doesn't show well in photos.
I don't mean that it looks bad or ugly, but that it looks like your typical nude shade with a hint of peach *snore*. This is the MAIN reason why I've been mostly "meh" about this lipstick in the past, but in reality it's phenomenal!
I've chosen to use a dark brownish nude lip pencil - Stila Contour 4 - with this lipstick because it makes my lips look fuller and I feel that it create more of a dimension to the lips with a shade like Gotta Dash. I applied it using my favorite lip brush - Royal & Langickel c601.

Surprisingly, this photo with flash is more of a true match than the photos I took in room lighting.
The grimace on my face is from all the fail photos I took tonight.
Out of focus look
Lip Pucker - No flashNone of these photo's showed the true beauty of this color *sigh*, and I seriously should have blended my lip liner better..
