I love this lipstick! Matte finishes are my absolute favourite, and the darker the better! Such a beautiful shade the honestly doesn’t seem all that intimidating to wear out of the house. It’s just the right amount of vampy without appearing too gothic, for those who aren’t going for that look. Forever gutted that it isn’t permanent, but so happy I picked it up when it was available. It wears for a good amount of time, and does withstand eating and drinking to an extent, but inevitably inner-lip wear does occur. I gave it a 4/5 because for some reason or another it smells pretty gross. I don’t know if it’s limited to the one I bought, but it definitely does not have the sweet vanilla scent associated with MAC lipsticks.
If anyone wishes they could get their hands on it then try out Nightmoth Lip Pencil by MAC because it’s almost the exact same shade. I love wearing them together.
Prince Noir is a deep, dark burgundy with red undertones and subtle shimmer. This shade has a matte finish. The color coverage is opaque, and I can see that this would would have a tendency to bleed around the edges, particularly if you find you are prone to that (I am not, but it did bleed a bit on me). It reminded me of a better quality Chanel Maniac. Make Up For Ever #49 is much purpler.
