Autumn Lipsticks: MAC Media

Media looks soooo much scarier in the bullet!  In real life it's even darker than it looks here; more of a true brown shade, yet when applied it's completely different and a deep plum tone.  MAC describe it as an "intense reddish purple".

I picked this up a while back before the vampy lips trend really took hold, and neither my friend nor the MUA at MAC fully understood why I was desperately swatching all the lipsticks and declaring them not dark enough.  This is definitely not a workday lipstick, and I only wear it when I'm feeling particularly brave....I'd go as far as to say it's bordering on man repellant!  That said, it looks great with dewy skin, bronzed cheeks and a subtle golden sheen on the eyes.

    1. It is tricky to wear, I'd definitely recommend getting it tested on you in store! x

    1. Like I said, it's much browner in real life and not a typically nice shade...but I like it! x

  4. I have been looking for a lipstick this colour for so long so thank you! I keep buying what I think will be it, then they're too pink or too aubergine or too... something. My bank balance is going to be screaming tomorrow. x
