MAC Cyber, the newest addition to my lipstick collection
MAC Cyber* | £15 buy here
The beautiful Nafisah from bamblingsofnaffy very kindly bought me MAC Cyber for my birthday, and I'm SO grateful! I've wanted this lipstick for so long.
The thought of such a dark lipstick used to scare me, but since I've been blogging I've become more confident in myself and I'm always trying new styles.
This lipstick is a gorgeous dark purple colour and I got so many compliments from people informing me that I really suited it. I've worn this a lot actually since I got it, in fact it's been in my handbag since I got it!
I apply lip balm before I apply this, as I do with any lipstick. I also use a lip liner to stop 'bleeding' as it's much more noticeable with a dark lipstick. It lasts a good few hours before it needs topping up which is about the same as my other MAC lipsticks.
I did find that you need to add a few strokes before it really gets dark, which is okay I guess as it means that you can build up the colour and stop it at a shade that you'd like, rather than going straight to dark.
I don't have any other satin lipsticks from MAC so I was unsure of what the formula would be like with this. It's a lovely creamy formula which is slightly shiny on the lips, but as it's a dark colour I didn't really mind that.
What do you think? Do you like dark lipsticks?
