M.A.C. Hautecore 2013 Review

M.A.C. Hautecore 2013 Review
Not everybody loves black lipstick. Not everybody wears black lipstick.
The thought alone conjures up images of spookiness, black magic, black cats and witchcraft. 
Hey isn't it the lipstick you would dare to wear on that one night of the year…Halloween? 

Black lipstick has come a long way. There are several companies that offer their version. M.A.C. went ahead and released another version. Hautecore is a  matte finish. While the matte finish leaves much to be desired, I had to swipe several times to get the full coverage you see below. There was still a sheen to the finish, not quite the matte I was hoping for. If you didn't get this lippie, it will be released again in the upcoming Punk Couture collection due out on Dec. 26th.

But back to black. It doesn't have to be a scary color. And frankly it's not. It is a chic color. I created other looks using Hautecore that are wearable everyday. The Soft Black look creates a sheer wash and your underlying lip color shows thru. No one would ever figure out that it was black lipstick you were wearing! Shhh…don't tell!

And you can add glitter and pigments and gloss too. There's much to play with and do with a black lippie. Yes black is black. But for this lippie, thinking outside the box will help in lip wear mojo. And a little confidence too. I always say, "Life's too short not to!".
