MAC Dark Side Lipstick Review, Swatches
Today I’m going to review the very first product I got from MAC, “The Dark Side” Lipstick. Its an amplified cream lipstick.
Where did I buy that : I got a chance to go to Macy’s during my official US trip and was so happy to see a MAC counter there(A brand highly recommended by my manager. So sweet of her.. 🙂 ). When you call it make-up , the first thing that came to my mind at that time was lip-sticks :P. As I had gone there with a family friend (guy) I didn’t want to spend much time choosing the shade .. I just asked the MUA to help me out and she picked the Lipstick in “Dark Side” and a complementing Lip gloss(forgotten the name). I just tried it on my hands and picked it (Donno for what reason on this earth I did that :(..)..
I use make-up occasionally (2-3 yrs back) and that too never loud. “Dark Side” is a deep burgundy colour. I was super excited and tried it as soon as I reached my hotel. I was shocked to see how dark the colour looked on my lips(I was so stupid, not to make out from the name :'()
Here’s are the swatches :
I would directly go on to the PROs and CONs of the lipstick
What I like about MAC Dark Side Lipstick
1. Very creamy. You can wear it on its own without a lip balm
2. Doesn’t fade so easily. The shine might reduce after a couple of hours , but the color stays .
3. It doesn’t settle in the lines of the lip(I have a lil deeper lines).
4. It doesn’t dry out the lips.
What I don’t like about MAC Dark Side Lipstick
1.The shade. It is way too dark for me (I was not able to carry it)
2. I felt it made me look older than I’m. General problem I face with dark shades
3. Need to line the lip to avoid the color from bleeding.
Would I recommend it :
If you are game for dark shade and can easily carry them, then you can give it a try. Else stay away from it. Though I would recommend you to try in store before buying (to avoid regretting like me :()
Learning from this : Never buy a lipstick before trying it on your lips 😀
Have a great day !!
