MAC Smoked Purple - Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Smoked Purple is a dark purple (like an eggplant) shade. It has a matte finish. But unlike the usual matte lipsticks from MAC, this one is extra drying (like it's a  really pure matte lipstick). It's like the purple version of MAC Ruby Woo. Because it's super matte, it'll take a few more coats to achieve the perfect opacity. This is a permanent PRO color which has been re-promoted in the MAC Me Over Collection last year.

PROS: The color is not easy to dupe. It's long wearing and the color payoff is decent.
CONS: It's really matte, close to drying. It's also a cool toned shade so it might not look good on everyone.


I will repurchase when I don't find something better
