These are some of my favourite MAC lipsticks. I feel these lip colours are amazing on darker skin. Some of these may not necessarily go well with your skin tone but I guarantee at least 2 of these colours will work for you. PS they are in no particular order.
Wet n Wild LE Fall 2015 MegaLast LipsticksYou guys should already know I am a huge Wet n Wild fan. They're one of my fave drugstore brands and the reason why I probably love lipstick as much as I do today. So needless to say when I know there's a new collection out I make it my business to track it down. And Fall is always very busy because we get the Fall Collection along with Halloween followed closely by their Winter/Holiday collection. And right now all three displays seem to be popping up at the same time. I just posted about the new Halloween Collection so figured I should get a move on posting my swatches of the Fall Collection.Swatches of the Fall 2015 LE MegaLast lipsticks on dark skinWet n Wild Celeb Sighting on dark skinWet n Wild On The Ave on dark skinWet n Wild Coffee Buzz on dark skinWet n Wild Vintage Vibe on dark skinWet n Wild Photobomb on dark skinWet n Wild Nightcap on dark skinNow here's comparisons swatches of the limited edition shades, which are marked with an asterisk (*), to current permanent shades.Comparison swatches L-R: Purty Persimmon, Celeb Sighting* & Stoplight RedCeleb Sighting is an orange red and as you can see it falls between the bright orange Purty Persimmon and Stoplight Red, which is blue-based.Comparison swatches L-R: Cherry Bomb & Photobomb*These two shades are the closest among all the comparisons. Maybe that's why their names are even similar. However, Cherry Bomb is deeper but they are close enough that if you miss out on this shade it's not the end of the world.Comparison swatches L-R: Coffee Buzz* & Vamp It UpCoffee Buzz is a blackened brown based plum while Vamp It Up is a blackened purple. I thought these were much more similar seeing them in the tube. I don't usually go for such shades. In fact, Vamp it Up is one of my least favorite purples but Coffee Buzz is actually one of my favorites from this collection.Comparison swatches L-R: Cherry Picking, On The Ave* & Sugar Plum FairyComparison swatches L-R: Vintage Vibe* & Sugar Plum FairyThese shades are very similar but as you can see Vintage Vibe is deeper. But it's not a big loss if you miss out on Vintage Vibe since Sugar Plum Fairy is permanent. Just add a deeper lip liner and it will be pretty much the same.Wet n Wild LE Fall 2015 Mega Last LipsticksPin me!All MegaLast lipsticks are matte or rather semi-matte as that's a more accurate description. I don't review them individually as far as wear time because I have found them all to be the same with very few exceptions. You get the advertised four hour wear time (maybe a little less) on these and while that may not seem long compared to Mac mattes the price difference more than makes up for this in my book. Plus the pigmentation just can't be beat for $2-3. These lipsticks are always my first recommendation to anyone looking to try out lipstick or a new shade. You won't be disappointed and if somehow you are, which I seriously doubt, then at least you didn't waste a lot of money.Happy Hunting!Follow me for the latest updates: Instagram | Tumblr | Twitter
Spirit is one of my favourite shades to wear at night when I'm not feeling anything bright. It is a darkened beige-brown with a satin finish. Instead of the classic dark red lip for Fall and Winter, I find myself gravitating to this more often than not. Because of its neutral undertone, it compliments all skin tones. It is comfortable, long wearing, and fades nicely without gathering in the corners. A brown lipstick may seem odd or scary to try, but I highly encourage it as you just might surprise yourself!
Why pros love it: "Whirl is a tone of pink that would naturally occur in a fair to medium-dark skin tone," says MAC senior artist Regan Rabanal. "It's almost like a pink latte. The lipstick works for everyone because of its depth and likeness to hues that naturally occur in the skin. When used on deeper skin tones, it turns to a lighter neutral, pink shade. "
Ariella: "I thought it may be too dark for my skin, but it's surprisingly flattering! It's not your typical color, but it still makes your lips stand out in a natural way. I don't wear lipstick often, but I love how comfortable I feel in this one."
Whirl is a classic, and I remember my mom was obsessed with the lip liner all throughout my childhood. She bought the lipstick when it came out, and I wore it once. It was so much darker than I thought it would be! At least on my skin tone anyway (printer-paper white). 2b1af7f3a8
