Mac Dubonnet

30 April 2013

I actually picked this lipstick up a while ago after learning that Scottish Ballet had used it as the lip colour for Alice in their production of Alice in Wonderland, but despite it being an on-a-whim purchase that had no real reason or thought behind it other than it was used in Alice I've got so much use from this gorgeous lipstick and if I ever use it up I'll definitely be repurchasing.

It's an amplified finish, and I find it to be quite moisturising on the lips because of this, though it can bleed out a little after a while if you don't use a lipliner and as you can see it's not the bright, retro red of the matte Russian Reds, it's a much darker brown-red, very vampy, sultry, bond girl-esque, perfect for lingering in dark corners in a full length gown waiting to seduce a Colin Firth shaped man in a suit. I've read a few reviews of this on other blogs and it seems to suit a variety of skin tones right through from see through pale like myself to the opposite end of the spectrum. 

Overall this would definitely make it into my top 10 Mac lipsticks if I were ever to be put into the horrible position where I had to chose, and I don't have a bad word to say about it.
