MAC "Red Dwarf"

I'd like to show y'all a new lipstick that I bought yesterday. It's from the current MAC Daphne Guinness color story that was released in Germany about a week ago.

The color I'm talking about is called Red Dwarf & is a pro longwear lipcreme. MAC says it last for a good 12 hours & even though it's a longwear formula, it'll keep your lips soft & hydrated even without a topcoat.

While I'm not sure it'll last for as long as MAC says, I can assure you that it lasts very well. It'll stay on your lips even if you eat a ice cream bowl & some french fries just like I did today :-D
I don't think it keeps your lips as soft as most non-longwear lipsticks do, but it didn't dry out my lips like e.g. MAC's pro longwear lip colors (unless I constantly re-apply the topcoat) do, either.

Red Dwarf is described as blue pink which is fairly accurate, but I'd say it's more of a blue toned raspberry pink than an actual pink - if that makes any sense ;-D It's not too dark, so you can wear it during the day, but of course also for a night out. 

When you apply it to the lips, you'll notice that it has a wet consistance which quickly dries down to a semi-matte finish.

It's a gorgeous color which I highly recommend checking out if you're into unusual lip colors like I am ;-) 
I can see this working on a variety of skintones.

This is how it looks on my rather pigmented lips:

Thanks for looking :-)
