I want to be brave this winter and wear a red lip. I like them. But I fear I look a bit like the joker every time I attempt one.
Mac's So Chaud is more of a deep orange than a red, and I've found it looks way better when I keep my skin au natural and let the freckles do their thing. Saying that I reckon it'll also look great with a natural tan, it's just a wonderful little all-rounder.
The finish is matte, which in Mac terms isn't overly matte and I prefer it that way. The formula isn't drying at all and doesn't emphasise any wintery chapped lips, which is a win considering how darn cold it's been recently!
The colour lasts a rather long time and as with all matte lipsticks from Mac, it's smoother on the lips than Selasi from Bake Off listening to Trevor Nelson.
Have you tried So Chaud?
