(Please ignore my slightly vacant expression - I realised I have never posted a full face for a swatch!)
Looking at myself wearing it I know it is quite bright but for some reason it just doesn't seem bright in a 'look at me!' way, and I think that's why I like it. It sits on the fence between a big bold lip and just a nice pop of colour. It also applies really well and I actually prefer it to some of MAC's popular formulas! It's quite creamy but without being greasy - it's very 'comfortable'!
I also need to say I love the packaging - I think whilst the box itself looks a little bit old and dated, I love the simple design of the lipstick itself. Glossy black with a tiny gold band engraved with Elizabeth Arden. So cute! And when you pull the lid off it has the satisfying bit of pull - hopefully you all know what I mean by this and don't think I'm crazy...
P.S don't forget to follow my blog on Bloglovin' - I keep getting people following me as a person but you need to follow the blog itself to get updates! :)
P.P.S - I'm currently in the difficult process of moving to Manchester this week so updates might be a little bit slow. :( Sorry!
