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.

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.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in a Squeeze Tube!

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I did notice that the tube is very… squeezy.  There’s a lot of give to the tube, and you’ll need to squeeze it with some pressure to squeeze out the product.  This isn’t a criticism, because it allows for more precision and less waste; you won’t squeeze out too much.   I just received this tube on Friday, but I did not experience any separation in this tube (which is my annoyance with Too Faced Shadow Insurance) — can’t tell you for sure, since it’s likely a new tube and all that.   But so far so good!

I’m sure the packaging change (or at least the availability of it–again, still waiting to hear more information) is a welcome one for a lot of UDPP fans.  I was never bothered by UDPP’s original packaging, but I’ve also never been near finishing one!
