It's that time of year once again where wild berries and dark cherries adorn our rose bud lips. Despite this the new MAC A Novel Romance Collection caught me by surprise when stumbled upon this collection at Westfields yesterday as I worked so hard on my self-restraint in the last few months.... Seeing the display I immediately picked up these two, swatched and couldn't let go. Unsurprisingly they came home with me and here they are for your lust-worthy pleasure.

Lingering Kiss is described as a deep plum red. Hearts Aflame is a rich mid-tone red reminiscent of one of old my favourites - So Scarlet Lipstick.

Apart from the cherry tones, what amazed me by these lippies are the rich modern matte textures. No sheen or shine, yet they feel comfortable on the lips. No shrink-wrapping, just beautiful.

Application Tips:

I would say reds and dark lippies are perhaps the most tricky to apply but what I have found two fool-proof ways to wear them.

1. Use a matching lip pencil to line and fill - Though talking, eating and drinking, your lippie mysteriously disappears/transfers. Using a matching lip pencil creates an even base and even outline for that crisp lippie shape.

2. Apply with the fingers to create a lip stain - Applying dark lippies this way makes uneven applications more forgiving. Dark tones enhance the adorable 'just-bitten' look.

Purchase from Selfridges and House of Fraser while stocks last!

Would you rock the dark lippie look?
