There was this MAC Collection of super dark lipsticks recently that was not sold in my country and I was very sad about that. Then I decided to go searching through my stash for dark lippies. I have only one, but that one is awesome:
It’s Chanel‘s Rouge Allure in 147 Maniac. It was part of an all- dark colors collection sometime around 2009? This is the only thing I have from it, it was my first ever Chanel lipstick! I seriously wish the lipsticks had been part of the permanent range; or that I had at least also bought the plummy one.
Maniac applied staright from the bullet and applied with finger. This is a very dark red tone. As a full on lipstick it is best applied with a brush. I like using it as a dark stain in a sort of messy grungy look, applied with finger, best (well, because it is less work). 😉
Somehow when I wear lipstick this dark, I want to go completely without eye makeup, not even mascara. But I’m never sure about it, what do you think?
I have also worn this in combination with Illusion d’ombre in Ebloui + Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Santal and it looked amazing.
