MAC Prabal Gurung Carmine Rouge Lipstick!

"I still remember my mother's vanity case, and how she would come back from work and sit in front the mirror to get ready. To this day I think of how that quiet, focused, trans-formative moment is so powerful for a woman," says Parabal Gurung, who wanted to create a lipstick that people would keep even after it had run out, just for the packaging, and that is exactly what he did with his MAC Cosmetics collaboration!


This limited edition offering from MAC, now forever sold out shade is a stunning red with a TON of pink under tones. The Prabal Gurung Carmine Rogue lipstick is a satin finish and applies like a dream in one richly pigmented swish, no pulling, no tugging, just amazing pigmentation! When it comes to the packaging, it is something I would cherish even if I finish up the tube ( I doubt, lol ), the only issue I have is the plastic-y inside of the tube. For $30 a piece, the equivalent of a luxury, designer lipstick, I expected that little part to be less plastic-y. The rest though, is a vision! The rose gold and indentations, ahh make the $30 truly worth it!

When it comes to the lasting power, let's just say, this one stays! It has brilliant staying power, on me it lasted a three course meal and drinks so that definitely get's a bucket load of thumbs up from my side! Even when it starts wearing off, it doesn't disappear in patches, ew lol, it leaves behind a pretty stain which I don't mind at all! 
If this were available, I would definitely recommend you guys pick up a piece! Here's an image of me wearing this, excuse the flash photography, this image is completely unedited :)


Until next time, tc
