I've been on a bit of a red lipstick kick lately, and found myself perusing the MAC counter for something vampy the other day. I came across the color Dark Side, and as soon as I swatched it, I knew it was just the shade I had been looking for!
Dark Side is a deep purple-toned red with an Amplified finish. I love deep reds with purple undertones, and against my fair complexion this definitely makes a bold statement.
I like the MAC Amplified finish because the color is opaque and the finish has a nice sheen to it. This keeps it from looking dry on the lips.
On my lips, this is definitely dark. Very vampy, very bold, so perfect for this season when I want a statement lip. I don't have a lip liner on in the photo below, but I will certainly be wearing a liner with this lipstick, as I don't want this color bleeding around my lips at all.
MAC lipsticks retail for $15 and can be purchased wherever MAC cosmetics are sold. They have a slight vanilla scent, and no discernible taste (in my opinion).
What do you all think of this lipstick? Do you like wearing dark vampy colors?
