To me this looks like a deep burgundy wine.I have very pale skin with pigmented lips.Straight from the tube it's just too much even through I love dark colors.I apply it lightly with a brush or rub it in with my finger and it looks like a nice stain that last for hours without bleeding or rubbing off on my teeth.
This a B2M selection. I allowed the SA to talk me into it so......I guess....nothing really wasted. It is a deep wine color that is wearable for me, NW45 DDD. But, I like a lighter color that give me an instant face lift (Ruby Woo). l love the texture of MAC lipsticks so my review is based on my personal perfernce in coloring. It's just not for me. It reminds me of colors worn by Black women during the 1970's.
I love this lipstick! Definitely not for the shy girl though. I bought this to go with my burgundy pencil and I saw it was used to beautiful and achievable results in the Derek Lam fall 08 runway show: http://www.style.com/beauty/backstage/022208BACK/ (good pictures)
I would be considered to have a 'gothic' style by most, so this was a must have shade for me. It's dark, it's dramatic, and best of all, it's not too strong for my violet red hair and green eyes. I like this color, but it needs to be reapplied often.. so I'll save it for rock concerts and shopping trips when I have time to pay attention to what I look like. Minus a lippie because it isn't all that lasting.
This was one of those "in theory" colors for me. In my head it gave me an edgy modern look but in reality... more of a wanna-be Goth vibe. Can't work it. What I end up doing is putting on balm then dabbing Media on it a couple of times for a tint. Heck, may as well wear lipgloss. Maybe it was made for the pale.
This was the first ever lipstick I bought from MAC and since it has become one of my staple products I have finally decided to write a review. Did not do this in the past five years as this product has always been there. This is for me the perfect color of cherry red. The lipstick give a totally different look when used MAT as it or wen a lip gloss is applied ontop. Cannot live without this. I have close to 20 different shades of red/cherry/burgundy lipstic but this one I wear at least once a week... HG
I like the effect, I love darker lipsticks but my thing is more intense dark cherry and this has too much purple for me but I like that it goes on matte and lasts F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I've had this for almost 2 years now.
The bullet tube looks chic and subdued but the cap can easily jog loose in a crowded bag. The color is true and can easily be tamed for scaredy cats but I probably wouldn't buy again just a little too opaque for me but a great buy all the same.
this is the PERFECT color for fall...especially with the dark lip trend. Love love love this color
This is a nice dark red color.It lasts for awhile.I just wish MAC's lipstick wasn't so expensive
I am jumping on the goth bandwagon with this lipstick. It is very similar to Chanel's Vamp with Media being a bit more burgandy. I am fair skinned, warm toned, dark hair. I feel like a goth chick with this lipstick, this could work at night but for a daytime lipcolor this comes out screaming. Sad to say, I returned it to the Mac counter. I wanted to love it just could not pull it off.
