When it comes to makeup I'm pretty game to give anything a go. I'm not afraid of a smoky eye or a bright lip, but I have to admit this lipstick scares me.
MAC Smoked Purple is the newest and darkest addition to my lipstick family. In the bullet it looks almost black, but once applied you can see that it's a deep (real deep!) purple.
Smoked Purple has a matte finish which is my favourite finish out of all the MAC lipsticks.
Being so dark this lipstick was quite hard to apply and you definitely need a lip liner with it as it does bleed.
I'm still summoning up the courage to wear this out of the house. I cant help but think if I was blonde I could pull it off better, at the moment I look like I'm auditioning for The Craft.
I did try it with minimal eye makeup, I'm talking only mascara but that was not a good look. I am determined to make this work though, so if you have any tips please share!
