As I mentioned in my MAC Lipsticks post, Sophisto is the odd one out in my collection. I won it in a giveaway when I first started blogging and it was actually my first ever MAC lippy. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this, when I first got it I didn't like it but after swatching it on my lips it doesn't look too bad when I have a bit of a tan.
Looking at the actual stick it is a berry red/pink colour with what looks like gold glitter in it but you can't really see the gold in it upon application. To be honest the colour payoff isn't great and to get a good lip coverage you need to spend a bit of time evening it out. This could be due to it being Lustre formula as my other MAC lippys apply really well.
It doesn't last very long to be honest, maybe a couple of hours at the most but I do wear this sometimes on nights out because going to reapply a bit of lippy is part of the night out in my book!
If and when I run out of this, I won't be repurchasing but it's nice to have a bit of a variety of lip colours because most of mine revolve around nudey/brown colours.
I shall leave you with a lip swatch :)
