A bold red lip can be the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. And, I found my perfect red lipstick in 2014 when Mac launched its Prabal Gurung collection. The “Carmine Rouge” lipstick from that collection was the best red lipstick I’ve ever tried. It’s a bright, true red that’s described as matte but has a satiny finish. So, unlike Ruby Woo and other mattes, Carmine Rouge applies smoothly and even has a subtle sheen. Carmine Rouge also has cool undertones and hence doesn’t lean to that orangey-red that I don’t favor. Anyway, I’ve been rationing my one tube because the color is a limited edition color that hasn’t been back until now.

I was thrilled when I saw that Carmine Rouge was back in Mac’s Colour Rocker Collection. Of course, Colour Rocker is a limited edition collection as well. So, I’ll be getting an extra one to be safe.
