MAC Cosmetics is the one makeup brand that when I see a counter for it, I run straight for the lipsticks and start swatching all of them immediately. I think they are kings/queens (I’m not labelling) of lipstick making. Because of my love for their lipsticks I tend to add one to my collection each and every time I find a MAC counter-which isn’t often as I live in Waterford & the closest counter is up in Dublin City.
My latest addition to my MAC Lipstick collection is the shade Smoke Purple which is a fairly famous shade as it’s the shade that the singer Lorde uses as her signature colour. I love dark and rich colours on my lips so whenever I’m going to spend 20 euros for a lipstick, I’m going to choose a colour that I will wear quite frequently. Smoked Purple comes in the iconic MAC bullet packaging, like all the other lipsticks they do, and is a member of their retro matte formulated lipsticks.
The colour is simply the most gorgeous deep vampy purple that, even though it’s a retro matte, is very comfortable on the lips and suits most if not all skin-tones. I personally love applying MAC’s Nightmoth lip liner on under it as this colour, because of how dark it is, can be a small bit patchy when applied on the lips just on it’s own. Nightmoth is literally the same colour but in lip liner form.
Please let me know what your favourite MAC Cosmetics lipstick is in the comments so I can add it to my list of lipsticks to pick up 🙂
