All about it
It is formulated to define, showcase and give the right kind of shade to the lips. The shade is very pretty and muted (subtlety in lipsticks is a rarity – all the more reason to go grab it ASAP! ). It has a reddish-taupe brown colour, has a smooth matte finish, great pigmentation and lasts long too! This one is under the same genre as Velvet Teddy and Whirl by M. A. C but the unique factor in it is its reddish-brown tinge. It doesn’t ever look or feel like you’re wearing too much makeup – the lipstick is light and gives your lips a soft look.
It’s a “Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! ”
What kind of skin tone does it suit?
This lipstick is relatively versatile. It has a good balance of warmth and coolness in it which makes it a standout product. It will look great on people with light to medium skin tone; also looks good on the warm skin and cool pale skin tones. People with naturally bright skin type will also look good on applying this.
Points to keep in mind and Accompaniment:
1. The prepping stage – This is the important bit. To make sure your lips aren’t dry, keep them well moisturized from before by applying lip balm or lip oils. MAC’s Fruit Of Passion scrub can also be used – it effectively moisturizes and exfoliates.
2. The makeup – The smokey look essentially goes well with this. The outer crease of the eye can have a dark brown or dark purple tinge and various gold tone eye shadows will go well in the inner corner of the lids. Have a peachy pink or slight orangey blush-on. Either gold or silver highlighter on the cheekbones adds the right amount of sheen. It’s always good to go bold on the eyes when the lip shade is nude, so apply liner and if not liner then any type of liner definition will be good besides eyeshadow. You could also use a pencil liner smudged with black shadow.
