Quick Pics, Lip Swatches

Hmm, I still wonder if I should continue buying MAC lipsticks. Very nice colors and such, but formula does leave a bit to be desired, especially the lustres and frosts. Maybe I've gotten used to it though.

MAC Black Knight: (Style Black, cremesheen) Applied straight from tube

What the color really looks like in real life:
(definetly doesn't photograph well. Also, you must be very precise in coloring in lip line!!)
Dsquared2's Nude Rose (Lustre):
(apologies for weird angle of the lips...;x)

What do you think of the colors?


  1. Oooh, Nude Rose is so very pretty on you - must be a lovely everyday color. And wow, you got Black Knight too! Have you tried putting a gloss on top for a vampy lip?

  2. I love the Dsquared one, but I think that I have one that's like it so I won't be getting one. I like MAC lipsticks (I have a small palette) but I feel like I have some other lipsticks (that I bought for like, a dollar) that could rival it.

  3. Hey Catherine! It is! And pinker than High Tea too :) I haven't tried putting a gloss on top of Black Knight yet, I may do that for this weekend though!

    Hey Y! I agree, it's very pretty b ut definetly not unique.

  4. Nude rose looks stunning on you! I'm going to check it out as soon as it arrives here.
