Azealia Banks: MAC Yung Rapunxel Lipstick

Saturday, September 8, 2012

MAC is known for many collaborations with many celebrities. They recently teamed up with rapper Azealia Banks (which I had no clue of who she actually was) and released a new limited edition shade of lipstick, Yung Rapunxel. It launched less than 1 week ago and is already SOLD OUT online!! Its a deep plum shade that has an amplified finish (one of my fav formulas by MAC). Below you can see a swatch of this shade as well as a few shade comparisons...

Night Violet Mattene, another LE shade of lipstick, as well as Currant lipliner are both pretty similar. However, both are a tad bit darker and opaque, and of course Currant has a different finish. Darker shade lipsticks are in definitely in for the fall. I tried it on as soon as I received it and was pretty impressed at how well it suited me. Will definitely take some getting used to, as I'm not accustomed to darker shades, but I can't wait to see how it looks with a full face look! 

What are your thoughts on this lipstick?

@Your Cosmetic Ally, Joanne I thought it would be more opaque as well. But it's still a lovely color. Can wear it in its sort of sheer state or build it up to your liking :)
