Maybelline has just introduced their new permanent line of Color…
Edgy and bold, MAC’s latest collection called Punk Couture is made just for us badass Bs. I didn’t grab much this time around, just 2 of the matte lipsticks: Instigator and Studded Kiss. The other lipsticks in the collection are Punk Couture (a cool dark purple) and Hautecore (a matte black).
L-R: Studded Kiss (2 swipes), MAC Fixed on Drama (retro matte), Melt 6Six6 matte lipstick (see my review here)
Not too dry, easy to apply. Super gorgeous!
Instigator: Another stunner. Warm, deep and dark eggplant in a creamy matte finish that won’t quit.
L-R: Instigator (2 swipes) vs. MAC Cyber
Only 2 swipes and this beautiful deep purple is on even and opaque.
Me and my little instigator, Kurt.
Final verdict? I LOVE these lipsticks. They apply very smoothly, don’t feather and are not drying at all like some mattes. Although they are somewhat similar to others in my collection, I don’t regret the purchase at all.
Luckily some of my fellow beauty bloggers reviewed these lipsticks a few weeks ago and I was able to avoid the other two lipsticks (Hautecore and Punk Couture) that were said to be very patchy and dry.
