MAC Hey, Sailor! Lipstick; Sail La Vie - Review


I'll admit I'm a sucker for packaging and the MAC Hey, Sailor! packaging is about as appealing as they come. The adorable red, white and navy, nautical theme runs throughout the entire product, even down to the gorgeous shade of red on the inside of the box. 

I got the shade 'Sail La Vie' which is a rich orange toned red. The colour reminds me a lot of Rockalily's Mae Hem but a touch deeper. 

It's highly pigmented so I had to be really careful with the application otherwise I was at serious risk of looking like a child with a lollipop addiction. The depth of colour is amazing, really strong and solid but not overly brassy. It made my teeth appear whiter and as silly as it sounds, it made my pasty skin look brighter! I tend to find with bright shades that they leave my lips a touch dry but this was incredibly moisturising. It gave my lips a pleasant sheen without being glossy or shiny. 

I put it on at around 11am and it survived my non-stop nattering with my mother-in-law, a pink of diet-coke and lunch. It needed slightly touching up after lunch but I was seriously impressed with it's durability. (And the fact that it stayed on my lips rather than smeared over my face whilst eating hehe!)


  • Cute packaging!
  • Moisturising
  • Rich colour
  • Fairly good durability
  • It's a bit pricey at £14 but I'd expect to pay that much for MAC. 
Have you had anything from the Hey Sailor! collection?
