MAC's Style Curve

It should be pretty clear by now that I'm obsessed with purple lip colors. Purple is not only my favorite color, but it's one of the very few colors that almost always looks good on me. I'm not really a MAC person, but I saw "Style Curve" on their website the other day and yesterday I just happened to be in the mall of a neighboring town that has a MAC counter. There isn't one in my mall, along with many other things. It comes with living in a small town. Anyway, I did a little swatch on my skin and even though it was more pink than purple, I liked it a lot so I went ahead and got it. See how it looks very purple in the tube but more pink on the lips? Either way, it's gorgeous. Believe it or not, this is actually my first MAC lipstick. I have a lipglass, but that's it. I just think it's over-rated and over-priced. However, I'm always willing to make exceptions for certain things.

I put this quick look together so that I could do some full-face shots with the lipstick. hai.
On my eyes I'm wearing Persephone Minerals "Princess Jupiter" (lid) and "Princess Mercury (crease). No primer, so they don't look as good as they could. Don't ever skip primer, the makeup gods will surely punish you. I love these two colors together. They brighten up your eyes so nicely.
I wouldn't really call Style Curve purple (same deal with LC's Airborne Unicorn), but it's very pretty. It's more of a fuchsia. It came from a collection that MAC just came out with and I honestly can't remember what it is. I do know that there are 3 other lipsticks (as well as other products) in bright red, pink, and orange. They definitely could have made this more purple since they already have a pink, but it's a great color nonetheless. OK, I think I've said that enough times now. :D

Have a lovely evening!

  1. Wow, I don't generally wear purple on my lips (it makes me look really funny T_T) but that shade is delish! Also, I want to stalk you down and steal all of your sailor moon eyeshadows, lol!! XD They all look soo gorgeous, and of course I am a total moonanite. :D In 6th grade I totally went around with a Save Our Sailors petition.

  4. I really like this! Sorely tempted to go and look at the orange lippie from this collection now, though I'm not sure I can justify the expense for a colour I will barely wear....

  7. So pretty, love purple lipsticks!

    Have you tried Violetta from Mac? It's one of my favorites, brighter and more purple than Style Curve.

    Really wanted Style Curve but the collection wasn't launched here. I'm determined to find it though.

    I'm so happy I found your blog, we have similar coloring with freckles and all, I'm sleek persian with Meow :)
