MAC Hautecore Lipstick ($15) is launching for Black Friday on November 29th, 2013 at maccosmetics.com so if black lipstick is your deal darling here’s your chance to grab a unique shade of it.
MAC Hautecore Lipstick is what MAC calls a true matte black. I dunno if you remember last year’s MAC Grey Friday Lipstick but it turned into a wearable shade that was very versatile.
MAC Hautecore Lipstick isn’t as easy to wear for myself. I think Noel would rock it like a boss but I look like living dead girl with it on. It’s a darker black but it has cooler undertones to it with a creamy texture that isn’t dry or less than smooth on lips (even my drier lips which are chapped at the moment it took well!). It isn’t quite fully opaque as a single application and I could still see patches of my lip’s natural pigmentation so a few layers need to be applied for the best intensity and opacity. It does migrate and feather a bit…mind you I tested it while I was sitting behind my desk for a few hours and it seemed to like creeping over my upper lip line during that time.
You can actually apply it over or under other shades to intensify them or get a more vampy look. This especially works well with red lipsticks and glosses. Under red lipstick it’ll intensity the color and give a more vampy finish but I also noticed that it was messy to layer with and didn’t always have the best results and the shade would end up look less than smooth.
Black isn’t my personal shade of choice but I know dozens of people both online and in real life who could rock this hardcore and beyond. Unfortunately, that person isn’t me.
If you’re one of the few who looks incredible in black lipstick you’ll be happy to know the MAC Hautecore Lipstick will be online only at maccosmetics.com on Black Friday starting midnight for a limited time.
