I often shy away from bold makeup looks, but after seeing a swatch of MAC Lipstick in Dubonnet, I decided to buy it on a dare. Luxuriously pigmented and on trend, you really can't go wrong with this brick-red lipstick that flatters most skin tones. Here's what I love--and don't love--about this permanent shade.
A sleek, matte bullet dispenser makes this lipstick easy to retrieve and store. While some lipstick residue did build up around the edges of the bullet, it wasn't overly messy, and took only a few swipes to tidy up.
Although the color may be a bit strong for some women, this shade is the perfect lip for the winter months--being both deeply pigmented and creamy. I managed to apply this without lip liner and I never had any bleeding issues, even after eating a Korean Thanksgiving meal with my parents. Oddly enough, this color can look bright red or muted in photographs, when in fact it is a deep brick red.
|Glasses and Dubonnet are a match made in heaven.|
Although creamy, this lipstick stays put, and I was able to wear it without lip liner. Just a few dabs on the top and bottom lip should add a nice wash of color that eventually fades out to a wine-kissed stain.
Having worn this for about a week now, there's hardly anything bad I can say about Dubonnet; its rich, creamy base is a godsend for my chapped lips, while giving my lips that perfect, deep red color. I love it--and I would definitely repurchase it.
