MAC Girl About Town Lipstick


As a beauty blogger, I don't own that many MAC lipsticks. I have a few on my wish list and a few empties so that may all change. Recently I won Girl About Town in a blog giveaway - I don't enter many blog giveaways so it was a real surprise!

Girl About Town was also on my wishlist too so it was a huge fluke. I love this shade - its a a bright blue toned fuchsia in an amplified creme finish. Its not the most unique shade - possible dupes include Rimmel Kate Moss 20, Revlon Colorburst Fuchsia and Inglot 69.
Generally, I get around 3 to 4 hours wear out of MAC lipsticks and I do find them slightly on the drying side. The amplified creme finish have a creamy, pigmented texture. It's a slightly more moisturising finish than others and comfortable to wear.


Girl About Town is a beautiful lipstick. Would I recommend it? Well, if you're a MAC fan then yes but if you're just a fan of the shade, I'd probably opt for one of the cheaper versions. MAC lipsticks have recently increased in price to £15.50 each. I'm going to predict that next year they'll be £16. Yes they're cheaper than the likes of YSL and Dior but those are luxury brands and MAC is meant to be a mid-range brand. However you can get MAC lipsticks when you return 6 empties with the back to MAC recycle scheme.

  1. I don't own Girl About Town, but I think it's such a gorgeous shade! I have a KIKO lipstick that is very similar though. :)
    My fave MAC lipsticks are probably Rebel and Heroine- I love me some purples :D

  2. I've never bought a MAC lipstick before! Just don't feel like paying £15 for one! I'll definitely check out the cheaper dupes you listed as it looks like a fab colour! :D xx

  3. I can't believe how much MAC lipsticks are going up in price, they seem to raise them all the time. I think they're getting too expensive for what they are as the drug store ones are just as good. But saying that this is a really nice shade.

  7. Lovely post and pictures! Love this shade, I always pick it up when browsing MAC however my Rimmel Kate Moss 20 is far too similar xoxo

  8. Oooh this color is awesome. It's kind of a mix between a nice pink & a deep wine. But like you said, I may just opt for a cheaper version. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

  11. This is a great color! I agree with you about MAC's price point, though-- too high for medium and not quite in the right range for luxury. I like to try new shades in Revlon; and then when I commit, it's YSL or Tom Ford all the way!

  16. I am so so on MAC Lipsticks - I think MAC prices are blowing out and sometimes it's more about hype the quality (except on their shadows which I swear by).
    Like you there are a few on my current wishlist (Candy yum yum for summer, hello) but I am certainly not a Mac or die kinda girl.
    I like that this one is blue based, and appears nearly reddish in your swatch.

  22. Congrats on winning that giveaway! I find M.A.C pretty expensive, but I use Ruby Woo as my go-to stage makeup red. This colour looks lovely, but I'd opt for a cheaper version for sure.

  23. Pink Punch 107 from Maybelline is the best dupe for this lipstick!
