Lately I’ve been drawn to darker lipsticks, especially those with grey undertones. Which is why I am so happy to have picked up MAC cosmetics “stone” lipstick and lip liner.
Stone lipstick by MAC is a cool, grayish hue with slight purplish hints. I am loving the color in the tube, and even more once applied. In my opinion, it’s not too dark; so for those of you intimidated by dark lipsticks, give this one a try, you might be surprised at how it looks on you! Another thing I like about stone, is it looks as though it can be very flattering on all skin tones.
It applies very smooth, with a matte finish. It’s staying power is pretty good, you will need to reapply after eating, but since it’s a dark shade traces remain on your lips; and it doesn’t simply fade away for no reason. I was able to drink my morning cup of coffee and keep my lipstick on entirely. I also strongly recommend buying the matching lip liner. Same shade, so you don’t have to go trying to find a liner that matches. The lip liner also applies smooth, and does what it’s meant to do. Keep your pout nicely lined, and keeps the lipstick from bleeding out.
Overall, I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. Check out my pretty pout above 😉 It is not drying on your lips, being that it’s winter that is a big plus. It leaves your lips looking smooth, and the color!!! It has quickly won a place as one of my favorites.
So, if you are trying to figure out to buy it or not, I say go for it. It’s definitely not a light color, but it’s also not too dark. I’d like to say it’s a pretty neutral shade, somewhere in the middle, that is flattering for all. Is this one of your favorite MAC shades?!
