MAC Captive Lipstick (available here) - $14.50
MAC Captive is described as a pinkish plum lipstick on the MAC website, and I would say the description is quite accurate. A Satin finish, the lipstick strikes the perfect balance between a matte effect - packing awesome pigmentation and staying power - while staying a lot less drying than the regular matte lipsticks. Captive is a darker shade that would work just great for fall, but because of the pink mixed in with the plum, this would also work great for a statement lip during the summers.
MAC Captive Lipstick - Swatch/FOTDOn my Indian/darker skin tone, this is a lipstick works ideal for evenings/fall, but like I said earlier, I do use it during the summers when I want to wear a darker lip for the daytime. This is my summer-friendly alternative to a darker, red lip :D Being a pinkish plum, Captive has a bit more brightness to it than straight-out severe plums.
|For some reason, the pink in the lipstick gets reflected on my lips more than the plum - and I for one am not complaining. Darker plum lipsticks tend to be somewhat aging on my skin tone!|
If you are looking for a slightly darker shade of lipstick without going too dark, give this pink-plum Captive a try :)
