The Scarlet Season: MAC Classic Dame Lipstick

MAC Classic Dame Mattene Lipstick ($14.50) is a semi-matte shade of creamy, opaque nearly neutral ruby red. It’s a bright pop of red with a superb formula, and it really is a shame that MAC hasn’t made the Mattene formula (and its lovely shades!) permanent. This shade is certainly fitting to its name–Classic Dame–and it reminded me a bit of Chanel’s Dragon. The semi-matte finish gives the color a bit of glossy sheen without adding any frostiness, and it also makes it moisturizing but still hugs the lips to give you several hours of wear. Anyone else remember Classic Dame and wish they’d make it permanent?

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!
