Mac's Sin lipstick originally came out with the Rocky Horror Picture Show collection - unfortunately, no matter how early I was awake on release day and no matter how often I refreshed the page I actually didn't managed to get my fill of Rocky products. I recently saw a friend post a photograph of herself wearing Sin and was absolutely mesmerised by the deep red colour. I needed it straight away. Usually I'm really good and I rarely treat myself to Mac (because it's just so damn expensive, and I'm already too far into my overdraft) but this time I just HAD to.
At the time of purchasing I didn't realise that Sin was actually apart of the Rocky collection, it was just a lovely surprise when I researched reviews! Though I do wish it was in fancy packaging, I'm just glad to actually have a colour as gorgeous and as limited as this one.
Mac describes Sin as deep dark blue red with a matte finish. It has a darker, more brown hue to its colouring in comparison to a typical wine red shade. The texture and wear is what you’d expect from a typical Mac matte and at times it can be a bit drying on the lips. The colour doesn't tug or feather though which I think is fantastic, as I always, always have problems with darker lipsticks (they just seem to get EVERYWHERE).
This has to be my favourite dark lipstick that I have ever owned. It's so gorgeous and completely wearable. I've been searching for a shade like this for years and have never found one so perfect. I'm so glad it was re-released in normal Mac packaging as I definitely would not of got the chance to own it ever in Rocky packaging. So, what do you think? Yay or nay?
