One of my favourite sets from Julep isn’t a nail…
If you’ve seen me in the past week or so, this is what has been on my lips: MAC’s Men Love Mystery, one of the newest additions to the permanent collection of matte lipsticks.
Described as a lavender violet, this purple lipstick sits right in the middle of two of my favourite lipstick shades.
Compared to Up the Amp, it’s a bit deeper/darker and compared to Strong Woman, it’s lighter but in the same shade family. I’d say this is very close to Riri Boy from the first Riri lipstick release.
The matte formula is just like most MAC mattes: creamy with a bit of shine but mostly matte. I’d say this is an even truer matte than some that I’ve tried. It wore well for quite a few hours (I reapplied halfway during the day). It left a bit of a stain behind but not too bad since it is a blue-based purple.
Side note: MAC has increased their lipstick price to $20 CAD, $17 USD. (check it out)
