MAC Sandy B Lipstick Review

Hi everyone!

One of the most recent lipsticks to be added to my collection is Sandy B from MAC. Now this isn’t really a shade that I would normally be drawn to as I usually find myself reaching for the more pink shades out there. However, I have been willing the horrible winter weather away and as soon as I saw this lipstick I thought it would be a great one from summer when my skin is slightly more tanned and I want a more bronzed goddess look!

Sandy B is a peachy pink colour with a frost finish and a subtle gold shimmer running through it. I really love the shade of peach but I haven’t been using it as much as I thought I might and that’s mainly due to the golden shimmer it has. When I’m wearing it I just feel it’s a bit much for everyday, especially when you’ve had it on for a while and the colour starts to fade leaving just the gold behind.  I also find it a bit drying with it being a frost finish which isn’t great for my already dry lips. Having said that, it does have great staying power and lasts a good few hours before I have to top it up and you can tone it down a bit by adding a gloss on top.

Overall, I do like this lipstick but I don’t think it’s ever going to be one of my favourites. I think it will be one that I use a lot on holiday and when the weather is warmer but not as much in the colder months.

Have any of you guys tried Sandy B? What did you think of it?

Thanks for reading xx


  1. It's a really nice subtle colour but I see what you mean about it probably looking nicer in the summer.

    Yeah it is a lovely shade but I think it's the gold shimmer that makes it more summery. I'll probably wear it loads on holiday :) x
