YES. When you find your novelty lipstick addiction for the upcoming fall/winter season long before going on the quest… winning! ‘Eugenie’ from MacGBV’s collection will be my irreplaceable, oh so fierce ‘dark cherry with blue undertone’ bae for the remainder of 2015. This matte finish, harmonious in between of a wine and brilliant purple hue with a creamy, opaque base ensures to bleed into every lip line and truly lasts forever – four to six hours! What’s not to LOVE?! Well … Aside from the fact that the overall application leans more on the tedious end, Eugenie has fulfilled my temporary lipstick goals.
The beautiful packaging is definitely true to its swatch color and for a darker shade lippie I must admit that I am quite impressed with the duration of how long the color stayed in contact without any touch ups. With Eugenie its mandatory to prep your chappers with a trusty primer and/or of course a complimentary lip liner. I even go the extra mile of moisturizing my lips with a touch of lip balm (Nothing too extreme to take away from the overall matte texture from the lipstick) followed by outlining and completely filling in my lips with ‘Currant’ from MAC Cosmetics AND finally carefully painting Eugenie to my lips with either a wand or lip brush to ensure I’m staying in between my lip lines. Eeeeeek. We are so ready for fall!
I consider Eugenie as versatile and comparable to any red lipstick. Specifically in the fall/winter, I’m sure I will be able to transition this lippie from day-evening looks. Whether it be greys, blacks, leopard prints and occasional cobalt blues, Eugenie will be incorporated into my dark denim and over-sized fur vests days, sweater dresses and knee high boots looks AND even the formal sexy evening gown with sky high stiletto’s. The possibilities are endless … 😉
