I’ve been really into trying out new, fun shades of lipstick lately. Black lipstick has always been something I’ve wanted to try but was too scared to. MAC’s lipstick in In the Spirit was right up my alley. It’s in a matte finish and is described as a, “pure black”. It’s actually a very soft, forgiving black if you’re new to black lipsticks. To get an actual pure black colour, a lip liner is necessary. Housed within the typical black bullet packaging and accompanied by the usual vanilla scent. I find this to be on the creamy side of the matte scale so it applies easily and is more forgiving than a true matte. I find the wear time on this to be meet my standards, a good 6ish hours without fading or transferring. It retails for $21.00 (Canadian) for 3 g / 0.1 oz of product.
- Matte finish, it is on the creamier side though so it’s very comfortable to wear and has all the perks of matte finishes
- Price, at $21.00 (Canadian) for 3 g /0.1 oz it’s an affordable price for a good quality lipstick
- Shade description, not a pure black like it says but more of a soft black unless you reaaally layer it or use a lip liner
- Lipliner required, especially to get a true black shade
