I have always a gloss and nude lover, although red happens to be my favourite colour. But my recent experiments with red lip colour on bare eyes have bore awesome fruits (as in compliments dearies) and I am now in absolute love with the colour red on my lips.
A Limited edition from Mac, Charmed I’m sure is a part of the Marilyn Monroe Collection. And don’t we all love Marilyn and her suacy red lips. The collection, specially this shade, is sure to give you that. Incidentally, some of the reviews state that the permanent collection colour Runway Red is a similar shade. But I feel that this is simply a shade that would suit all skin tones, be it warm or cool.
First the packaging. The lipstick come in a special LE packaging with the autographed image of the Diva herself…. WOWOWOW! inside is the regular black bullet shaped MAC lipstick case.
This shade, Charmed I’m Sure is a deep blue based red. I often wear it as a stain on normal days and build up the colour with more swipes for the evenings out. On my hand as a single swipe too, the colour comes out awesome. And then, when I use it as my perfect red lip colour, it fetches me even more compliments. It does not bleed or settle into lines, which makes it the perfect red lipstick.
Now on the texture. The lipstick is creamy,smooth and matte and its superbly pigmented. One swipe is enough to give you a sexy colour and more swipes would definitely mean saucier lips… It has the classic MAC vanilla fragrance, which I so very love. The finish is creamy matte thus not drying the lips at all. On my lips, it stays for around 6 hours, after which it fades into a lovely stain that leaves your lips so kissably pink ;).
Complete colour only goes off when one uses a remover. Infact, I am yet to find any con with this colour….
Also, it would be a little expensive too.
ETM Edit* Looks lovely on you Tarz. 😀 I love pink-y reds. And you have got such a cute pout.
