MAC lipstick in Instigator is a vibrant and bold lipstick most suitable for evening looks. The colour is described as a deep blackened plum- not for the faint of heart.
The lipstick appears dark and wine-coloured, but it is a dark fuchsia when it is applied. Sweetening the deal, it has rich pigmentation and a sumptuous texture. The product does not bleed, so lip-liner is not a necessity.
This lipstick is not a stay-on product, and it shows. It transfers onto everything your lips touch. The trick of dusting blusher onto the lips through a tissue after application of lipstick improves its staying power.
Being such a dark shade, Instigator is perfect for a goth look, or can be paired with understated eye make-up for a high-fashion look.
MAC may be a premium brand, but their matte lipsticks are one of the more accessible items, at $36 each. You can purchase Instigator as well as countless other shades from their make-up counters as well as online.
