The Sultry Season: MAC Smoked Purple Lipstick
MAC Smoked Purple Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, dark reddened purple. It’s not exactly the purple you first think of, but I find myself always gravitating back to using the word purple to describe the color. It’s incredibly dark, certainly vampy, and it packs quite a bit of color. It is a little on the dry side, though nothing overwhelmingly dry (a la Ruby Woo), so do take care and prep lips by exfoliating them prior to application.
Is this the right purple for you? Would you wear it?
The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.
