I love nothing more than a fab red lipstick. They are without a doubt, my favourite makeup items on the menu. I also like to vary them depending on the season or my mood. Feeling a little glam and seductive? I go for a deep red with a satin finish. Fun and flirty? A bright orange tone. In the winter, I usually tend to reach for darker matte colours. They look a bit more sophisticated against my paler winter complexion.
My choice of red this season has to go to Chili, another classic from MAC. It’s a rusty red – not too dark, or too light – and as matte as matte can be. Of course, the matte formula does make it a little difficult to apply and it can feel quite drying, but that does mean it will last all day through any hail, sleet or snow.
The reason this is perfect for winter is it has a really interesting warmish tone to it. Think red with a touch of cinnamon, almost like rusted copper. It just looks really flattering without being too out there. It’s also one of the few red lipsticks I feel truly comfortable wearing during the daytime.
My MAC collection seems to be ever growing… If you have any other suggestions for what should be next, let me know!
What do you think of MAC Chili? Is it on your list of possible lipsticks-to-buy?
