Mac Antique Velvet Lipstick || Review

Mac Antique Velvet Lipstick
My lipstick tastes are changing! Don't get me wrong, I love Candy Yum Yum and Viva Glam Miley Cyrus as much as the next person but recently I've been reaching for much darker, vampy shades - think Rebel and Mehr.  It's probably the time of year but I definitely have a lot of love for these colours lately. Recently, I saw a girl in New Look wearing the most beautiful dark browny, red shade and I had to know what it was; it's Antique Velvet by Mac FYI. My boyfriend kindly bought it for me for Christmas and i'm in love.

This is definitely a shade that needs a lip liner, Mac Burgundy goes perfectly to ensure that it stays on all day and doen't bleed out of the lines. I've found it best to apply the liner, then use a lip brush to pack the colour on to the lips, finally applying the lipstick straight from the bullet once the colour is nearly opaque.
I have super pale skin and I personally think this shade suits my skin but I've also seen lots of tutorials on Youtube of people with darker skin tones too and it suits them. I'd pair it with a neutral eye or a brown smoky eye depending on the occasion but don't be worried that because it's a bold lip, you can't rock a bold eye at the same time!


  1. This looks like such a gorgeous lipstick - I do own Mac Burgundy lipliner so this would be perfect to pair with that!
