You know you got #issues when you spend 45 minutes choosing a lipstick. That's exactly what happened to me when I took in my empty containers to the MAC store and had to pick two lipsticks.
(L-R Double Shot, Verve)
Every lipstick I picked up I had - So what did I end up doing? Choosing two lipsticks that pretty much look the same. I am in to a very specific tone of lipstick at the moment, if you have read previous blog posts then you will know what I'm on about, if not then I'll tell you. It's the kind of lipstick that enhances your natural lip colour but the tone is a lot richer, warmer and earthier than a typical nude. It's a little bit more evident on the lips than my usual MAC picks of 'Modesty' or 'Spirit'.
First up is 'Double Shot', this lipstick is an amplified and as soon as I swatched it I was pretty sure it would be 'the chosen one' it's exactly what I set out to find and even though I don't usually opt for an amplified finish - For this tone, it works. It's the perfect Autumnal lip colour and I've been wearing it pretty much all week.
The other colour I picked, which I haven't yet worn is 'Verve' - The finish of the lipstick is a satin and while I don't have any pictures to currently upload of me wearing it, I will just say it's very similar to 'Double Shot' but has more of a reddish tone to it. No doubt I will be featuring this on a #FRIDAYFACEOFF soon.
I guess, for now I wanted to share my love for 'Double Shot'. I get a lot of comments on Instagram about lipstick so in the last week if I've worn a nude-ish/brown-ish colour it's probably THIS! I also saw a picture of Kim Kardashian rocking a gorgeous lipstick at the Givenchy show at PFW and it immediately reminded me of 'Double Shot'!
What are your favourite MAC lipsticks? In the moment at the lipstick counter my mind honestly goes blank and I never know what I want! So all suggestions are always welcome.
