I actually don't have much to say in today's post other than that if you are looking for an intensely pigmented yet wearable burgundy lipstick that isn't took dark nor too light, here's one for you and I think you'll love it--MAC Dionysus Liptensity Lipstick (shop here). It is described as a deep plum shade on the website, and this pulls neither warm nor cool so I can see this flattering pretty much ever skin tones!

Honestly not a big fan of the cut of this lipstick as it makes it sort of difficult to get into the corners of the mouth, but that's nothing a good lip brush can't fix. Also as you can see here, the color on the tube actually matches the actual color of the lipstick pretty nicely!

So here are the swatches of this Dionysus color. On the left I have swatched it once, and on the right I layered it three times. As the name implies, MAC's Liptensity Lipsticks are hella INTENSE yo! First swatch alone was intense and it only gets slightly darker as I layer.

When it comes to red lipsticks I am a bit picky in that I do not like it have a lot of blue undertones to it (look too pink). As you can see in this photo, when I blended this Dionysus shade, it look plum but not too cool toned nor warm, which is just the way I like it! I can't think of one lipstick that looks similar to this one, and find it to be highly unique, especially given the pigmentation!

Top left: MAC dionysus lipstick applied only lightly with a brush.
Top right: MAC dionysus applied only on the lower lip straight from the tube.
Bottom left: Everything blended out for a gradient effect.
Bottom right: MAC Dionysus applied and layered in full. I don't know why it looks super patchy in this photo but trust me when I say it didn't look patchy at all in real life.

And it did leave some color behind even after I tried to wipe it off (my natural lips are more gray and zombie like than this lol). I wouldn't say this is a super long-lasting lipstick and it this liptensity formula feels like MAC's amplified formula--it is hydrating and applies very smoothly, but is not long-lasting.
