Hi loves, I hope you had much fun during the last few days and didn’t overspend in the sales! So far, I have splurged a little bit on shoes and lingerie but those are necessities right? I mean they’re a basic human right! Hehe, naughty splurges aside, today I have a quick little lipstick post for you featuring my current favourite lipstick. Do you find at different times of the month, year, you are always using the same lipstick over and over again? I do!
This is MAC Captive, described as a satin finish pinkish plum. I think it has just the right amount of darkness in the pink for this to be a staple winter shade. An easy shade to wear, it is really creamy and just glides on and it really suits most skintones. I find it works really well with my tanned olive complexion and when I’m stuck on which colour to wear I just reach for this. I have a couple more MAC plum shades in my collection but this one is definitely my favourite.
I love satin finish lipsticks like this, it’s basically a creamier version of matte lipsticks with a bit of a shine. Meaning the lipsticks have great colour payoff with one swipe without the need to layer on. I also find that they last a while, around 5 to 6 hours to wear. It doesn’t dry my lips out and is easy to apply without a lip brush. For someone who is looking for a winter shade without straying into the vampy deep reds and purples genre, I would definitely recommend try this shade out.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I would love to know what is your current favourite lipstick or lip product. Tanzina x
