Now how far behind the zeitgeist am I on chocolate brown lipstick? Let me explain my lateness/ bang-on-trendness before you judge me. I have yet to meet a matte lipstick I haven't fallen in love with, and because matte's mostly come in red I've become a creature of habit, alternating between MAC's Sin, Ruby Woo and Diva.
In an attempt to remedy my addiction to red lipstick I added a nude to my collection, but it came nowhere near my preferred level of intimidating-80s-power-bitch so I went in search of a richer brown instead. Enter MAC's Film Noir, a rich, dark chocolatey satin that's easily mattified with a little face powder.
some pins from a pinterest board I created dedicated to chocolate lipstick.. I'm a bit obsessed
I used a dark brown liner by Kiko in 315 to line my lips, applied the lipstick, dabbed on some face powder to mattify it a little and followed with another coat of lipstick which I then blotted.
