MAC Yung Rapunxel Lipstick
MAC Yung Rapunxel Lipstick

Purple is a Vamp

MAC Yung Rapunxel Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep plum” with an amplified finish. It’s a dark, vampy purple with red undertones and semi-opaque color coverage. Urban Decay Apocalypse is slightly redder. MAC Fervent is purpler. MAC Smoked Purple is more opaque, so it appears darker and the red undertones are subtler. NARS Train Bleu is more opaque, slightly darker.

It’s a collaboration color with Azealia Banks for Fashion’s Night Out. I just received this yesterday afternoon, and MAC’s website is really the only place the majority of people can access it (it is available at all NYC MAC stores, however)–right now, it says out of stock, but it also says “shipping soon” and allows you to add it to your bag.  It looks a bit more like a stain, because it’s not totally opaque, but it also looks somewhat uneven.  The consistency is creamy and thin (feels a little like a glaze in that regard).  It lasted five hours, and it did stain slightly.  MAC’s lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

I'm not keen on the unevenness of the color when applied; it's interesting to see this type of color in a slightly less intense way, but the unevenness hurts the end result.
