If you didn’t get a chance to get the MAC limited edition Haute Couture lipstick but still want to try a black lipstick, no worries. Here’s a much cheaper alternative.
The above picture is without a flash and below is with a flash. The bottom swatch is the initial swatch. The top swatch is after I applied a few layers to make it darker.
Granted it’s not a matte, however, if you want to make it matte, just add a transparent powder on top. 😉 This lipstick is creamy and glides on very smoothly. Below is a picture of it on my lips without a flash.Here it is with a flashIt starts off sheer but is totally buildable, so the more you put on, the darker it gets. This is great because it makes it easier to wear. It doesn’t start off extremely dramatic.
This lipstick should be around $4 and could be a lot cheaper if on sale. I actually got it from CVS when they had Wet n Wild products on sale buy 1 get 1 1/2 off. It was regularly $3.49. I bought two other lipsticks from this collection that I’ll review in another post.
I like it. Can’t say that I’ll be wearing a black lip a lot, but I’m sure I’ll pull it out every now and then. Just as I stated with MAC Punk Couture, I’m sure Pagan Angel will be pretty when layered with other products like glosses, glitters, and pigments.
