MAC Matte Lipstick in Sin

image

Lighter than Cyber, but darker than Diva, Sin is the newest addition to my Little Lipstick Family. There’s little use in me stating the obvious — I’m quite fond of darker lip shades as opposed to bright colours, or even nude shades. Sin is a matte finish, unlike Cyber which is a Satin finish; there is less movement on the lips, with (for me) longer wearability.  On my skin tone (NC45), Sin appears more of a rustic deep brown shade, as opposed to a burgundy shade. Though it is brown, there is a strong red undertone — which is why it pairs so nicely with Currant. Not to say that this would be unflattering on lighter skin tones, but for Women of Colour, this is a real winner because it enhances yellow undertones so nicely. For those of you who prefer a simple bold lip with no shadow — some liner and lush lashes will work just fine. For those of you like me, who feel a warm eye pairs well with…well…almost everything. I’ve been using some of the shades in my quad as my go-to complementary pairing. Though this is a matte finish, it isn’t drying. Still ensure that you’ve scrubbed the dead skin off your lips because if you haven’t, they will be even more pronounced — no fun for anyone involved. Last thing, promise. Since this is such a deep shade, ensure that you line your lips when wearing it so that it doesn’t look sloppy. P.S. I apologize if you’re unable to see the caption on my last 3 posts. I have no idea why this is happening; trying to fix it ASAP! 😦
