Oxblood colour lipstick? Sign Me Up!
Oxblood. It’s a description of the deep berry, blood red colour that is one of the ‘it’ colours of the season. Something about the word evokes richness, depth, and ‘schmexiness.’ I wanted Oxblood colour for my lips. I own a few lipsticks in this colour range and didn’t think I ‘needed’ to get another…until I saw Rae’s post on The Notice (link!) about MAC’s Desire.
After reading it, I desired Desire. Again. You see, I owned it way back when but Back to MAC’d it when I thought I was over the colour.
I’m clearly not. I do have to say it brings me back to ’90s and the dark lips phase I went through. If you’re of my vintage, you know what I mean. Today, it’s modern and can I say, edgy. Here I swiped it a couple of times on my lips for the full coverage effect. Click on photos to see the colour in more detail. It has a nice sheen and depth to it, yes?
Check out Rae’s post for other ways to wear this beautiful, versatile, Oxblood-coloured lipstick.
Are you sporting darker lipsticks this winter?
