And Twig was my birthday lipstick, which is really surprising that it's taken me this long to wear one of MAC's more popular shades.
When I first saw this, I thought it was easily a creamier variation to Velvet Teddy. It looks nude yet rich, but once swatched, Twig has a very different story. Instead of a glossy coffee colour, Twig has a subtle plum tone.
It doesn't look natural on my lips but I can imagine that on deeper skin tones this looks stunning.
I still adore the colour - it's somewhere inbetween a dusky rose and a simmered violet that is very eye-catching.
The finish feels like silky cream, has amazing colour laydown and lasts a surprisingly long time for a lipstick with a moisturising texture.
Colour Intensity: medium
Finish: creamy, moisturising, slight gloss
You'll like this if: you are looking for a plumful dusky rose that will look amazing on deeper skin tones
Perfect for: wearing daily / wearing with Becca's Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Guava Moonstone - this blush complements Twig so well
