WOC Lipstick review: MAC Cremesheen dare you

Hey loves, 

Today's Review : Mac 'Dare You' Cremesheen Lipstick 

I'm starting to go through my makeup stash, swatching and reviewing my products.  

A little about me & my reviewing style: I am a college aged, African-American female. I have both golden and red tones to my skin depending on the time of year (redder in the summer, more gold in the winter). I use Smashbox HD foundation in Dark.  For reference, my closest MAC shade is NC50, it is my concealer color. I live on a college (tiny) budget and I will rate my products on affordability and if I feel the product is worth the money. 

Retail Price: $14.50

Product description: (Cremesheen) Creme-based lipstick that imparts bright full color, with a soft and supple shine. (Color) Deep brown red. 

Color: (5/5) This “deep brown red” lippie my first (and only) MAC lipstick. I went to the Georgetown store looking for a red that wasn’t too out there, and found this. Dare You stood out to me because of its deeply pigmented, sophisticated color and the gold/orange undertone. I love warmer shades and I really love the color of this because I can rock a red-red lip with it or a subtler red-bronze/gold look. I get complemented when I wear it, so that also helps me build the courage to rock it more often.

See the subtle gold shimmer?

Texture: (5/5) Dare You is a smooth and satiny cremesheen. The texture feels light although the color is bold. It feels soft and moisturizing, but I like to use a gloss to keep moisture in. With this lippie, you lips cant be more than only slightly chapped because it will call you out! (ol)  But that has more to do with the red color than the texture. The soft shimmer camouflages minor    imperfections.

 I love this lippie, and I recommend it as a safe bet for a red lip. The color is rich rather than being loud so it easy to rock. And the quality and feel of the product shows that its worth the price, you get what you paid for wit this one.  I’m sure I’ll love it even more when I start my teaching career; it’s my power color!
