Friday Favourite #2 MAC Dark side

5 Jul 2013

I been falling into a major makeup rut recently tending to opt for the same base, eyes and lip combo every single day. I think we all get like this from time to time, life gets in the way and lets be honest, there are more important things in life than worrying what lipstick you're going to wear tomorrow!
However, because of this I've found that I was letting some of my favorite products gather dust in my make up bag unused and unloved. So I have decided to make a conscious effort to dig these little beauties out and start falling in love with them all over again! Starting with this lipstick, MAC's Dark side.
Dark side is described as a deep burgundy and I would completely agree, It is an amplified finish - a highly pigmented colour which is moisturising and doesn't dry out the lips, I think I would say this is my favourite lipstick finish from MAC as it's creamy without being too much and because the colour is so intense you only need to apply a little bit meaning it will last longer, win! 
I find the colour to be so versatile and appropriate for both day and night time. My favourite way to apply is straight from the bullet either tapped on the lips for just a light wash of colour or applied all over for a more intense evening look.
One of my all time favourites and since rediscovering It has made a swift transition in to my everyday make up bag!
