Guys, guys, guys!
I have been rebelling lately!
I have had NO time for pretty corals, pinks or orange lipsticks this summer.
I’ve been all about dark vampy lips, don’t ask me why…I JUST HAVE ALLLLRIGHT!
Now with that disclaimer out the way I would like to introduce you to my newest addition.
MAC’s Smoked Purple lipstick.
You would have seen me wax lyrical about this lipstick in my Summer Beauty Lush List post, however I had actually planned to pick this lipstick up at IMATS but distracted myself and brought Diva instead, doh!
I managed to rectify my mistake and in the rain I made my way to the MAC in Covent Gardens to pick up this lippie and mannnn, was it worth it!
Smoked Purple is a matte gorgeous creamy blue toned aubergine purple which works well on many skin tones. It actually applies lighter than the colour shown from the bullet
I applied this lipstick with MAC’s Nightmoth lip liner as it does not disturb the actual colour of Smoked Purple too much.
As you can see from my pictures below you have to be careful when applying this product (you have to respect the fact that it is a MAC matte and not as simple to apply.)
With the swatches below I had actually blotted my lips and had not re applied the lipstick which is something I should’ve done as to not make the lipstick look so patchy.
I’m also planning on buying myself a lip brush, eeek
(bare with me peeps, baby steps yeah!)
Seriously guys, I FREAKING LOVE THIS COLOUR!!!
It is so unique but yet very wearable, I want to wear it all the time!
Smoked Purple is available on the MAC US site however for my UK lot this is a pro product which you can pick up from all pro stores.
I don’t normally tell people to go and buy lipsticks, but this one is definitely one I would push people to buy.
I LOVE IT!
What do you think about vampy lips for the summer?
