It’s nearly the end of March so I thought it was time for my second lipstick of the month post. Last month I chose a liquid lipstick by Gerard Cosmetics (you can read the post here) and I still wear it all the time. As you might have guessed from the photo above the winner this month comes from one of my favourite brands for lipstick, MAC. A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Vienna with a couple of friends and while I was excited for the holiday, I was also excited about duty free shopping! I didn’t go to the MAC counter with any shade in mind, but after swatching
a few lots of shades I decided on Dubonnet.
Why It’s Lipstick Of The Month
Dubonnet is an amplified creme formula (my first MAC lipstick with this finish) and I’m really impressed with it. The colour is bold and pigmented and the lipstick looks creamy with a little shine. The only downside to the formula is that because of the creaminess it can smudge more easily. The wear time is good though, as with a lot of bold shades, and it stains the lips a little, meaning the colour fades evenly. I also like the fact that it’s a shade of red. Recently I’ve been quite safe with my lipstick choices (I’m definitely a nude lipstick fan), so it’s nice to step out my comfort zone with this shade.
Have you ever tried Dubonnet? Do you normally buy red lipstick shades or do you stick to more neutral colours?
