Trying Something New | MAC Instigator

Ok so I’ve got to be honest, this was a total impulse buy. And I didn’t even buy it in store, I bought it online. I’d seen these bold, dark shades on people and wanted to know if I could pull it off. If I’m completely honest, I’m still not sure.

The lipstick itself is gorgeous. It’s a dark plummy colour with a long-lasting matte finish and the usual MAC lipstick smell which I love, it’s just much darker than what I usually go for. I have two sides to me – sometimes I feel like a real girly girl, and sometimes I feel like a grungy tattooed sass queen and this shade is perfect for those days.

This shade is definitely long lasting and often I’m removing it before it actually comes off itself if that makes sense, but I do find that because it’s so bold it becomes harder to apply. I can sometimes end up with smudges and there’s very little room for mistakes, and it definitely needs a lip liner.

What do you think? Do you wear dark lipsticks? If not, would you ever try something like this out? I’m still not sure…

    Wow this is so bold! I’m sure it looks fab on you. I recently bought Rebel and I love the colour but I don’t always have the confidence to wear it.
