It just flew to the top of our wish lists...
Ahh Pinterest. Whether we fancy browsing beauty, home décor or food, it’s our favourite destination to go for inspiration, ideas and general procrastination.
When it comes to makeup inspo, Pinterest always delivers and leaves us itching to run out to buy and try heaps of new products and experiment with shades that we’ve stumbled across – we’ve all been there!
One lipstick in particular has been crowned the most pinned lipstick on the site, which is a pretty big deal considering just how many stunning lipsticks and swatches there are on Pinterest.
So, what lipstick can’t people stop pinning?
It’s MAC’s Watch Me Shimmer, which is an absolutely stunning fluorescent pink coral shade.
Watch Me Shimmer is the type of bright, statement colour that would look UNREAL on a huge spectrum of skin tones and would be the perfect summer shade… how good it would look in selfies next to a colourful cocktail?!
We’re admittedly not surprised this lipstick has become a bit of an internet sensation, but we do have some bad news to share.
You might want to sit down for this.
Watch Me Shimmer was a limited edition shade originally released by MAC in 2012 * sob *.
It did briefly return to stores in 2015, but has since been off the market, with no signs of coming back any time soon.
Will we ever stop being haunted by the limited edition makeup we never bought?
Luckily, for every widely loved lipstick, there is a similar dupe, and here are our recommendations for if you want to recreate the gorgeous shade that is Watch Me Shimmer…
