During April I'm going to be sharing my Mac Lipstick Collection on my blog. Today, I'm kicking things off by talking about Mac's Cyber Lipstick - a deep purple with a satin formula. I recieved Cyber as a Christmas present and it was a shade that I'd wanted to try for a long time. Although it's by no means a colour I'd reach for everyday, I find dramatic lipstick shades incredibly glamorous when they're worn with the right makeup and outfit, and Cyber is certainly dramatic! Below, you can take a look at what Mac's Cyber looks like on my lips.
Because Mac's Lipstick in Cyber is such a dark shade, it's incredibly difficult to apply neatly. To get a true reptesentation of the colour, in my photos I'm not wearing a lipliner. However, wearing a lip liner would make the lipstick look neater, more intense and it would help a lot with longevity. Although Cyber has a Satin finish, it doesn't actually look very matte on your lips. It feels very creamy when you apply it from the bullet and feels incredibly comfortable to wear. Although this is a good thing, it does have some negative implications. As Cyber has such a creamy formula it does "move" quite easily. What I mean by this is that the lipstick can "slip" - ending up on teeth, outside your lip-line and transferring onto glasses when you drink. It isn't an impossible shade to wear but it does require quite a lot of maintenance, and this often puts me off reaching for it.
I love the colour and I appreciate how comfortable the formula is, but I think that if you're after a dramatic lipstick then you might generally prefer something with a more matte and less transferable finish.
What do you think about Cyber - would you ever wear a lipstick this colour? What Mac Lipsticks are on your wishlist?
