Smoke on the water
Today, I've got a post about what I think is a very daring lipstick to wear. MAC Smoked Purple. It's got a matte finish, and it is a little drying. I really did not expect this as I already own one of MAC's matte lipsticks which is also my favorite lipstick ever: Rebel and that isn't drying at all.! But that aside, I never thought a lipstick could make such a statement.
Although the lip swatch shows it up more of a brown purple lipstick, it's actually more black based. I kind of like to think of as a lighter version of a permanent marker colour. Weird description, but it fits. As the lipstick is quite drying it does take a bit of a build up to cover your entire lip area. It also lasts for over 6 hours easy without it budging and that's without any lip liner.
