(MAC Young Rapunxel with Nightmoth liner)
Fashion Night Out 2012 gave us lots of offerings. MAC gave us Young Rapunxel lipstick, a limited edition, smokey purple promoted by newcomer rapper, Azealia Banks. The dark lip is on trend for Fall (again).
Strictly a collector's purchase, I ordered with reservation. I've tried the dark lip look. Most dark lip colors look, well, just dark on me.
Was this color worth adding to my collection?
I saw swatches online that I wasn't as impressed with, but I'm always hopeful that MAC's new lipsticks will take on their awesome new matte formula. (It's a matte formula that is stiff without being drying and cakey.) Young Rapunxel is an amplified cream, another formula I'm fond of, but this isn't the creamy, opaque amplified cream I'm used to. It was more sheer with slip; not my cup of tea especially with a dark color. I already own a dark, vamp color with application issues. This was not worth adding to my collection.
Disappointed. Besides, you see a nice, rich, purple color on me because of the yellow flash used to take the picture. It appears to be a generic dark lipstick in person. If you missed out on this color or have skipper's remorse, don't be too upset. MAC's liner in Nightmoth is a dead ringer for the shade. There are also numerous shades that are dupes of the color..a simple Google search will show proof. I wish the tube would at least have had Azealia's signature or a special FNO 2012 packaging. That would have been cool!
Did you buy this color? Do you love it?
