When I'm not working, I rock a red lipstick quite often as I am always told it suits me with the dark hair. The truth is I would probably always wear it but I find when I am working and talking to clients it quickly fades. I have a couple of bright lipsticks and I seem to always buy new ones that are virtually the same shade so when I clapped eyes on MAC's lipstick in New York Apple, I was really excited.
I would say that this colour is halfway between a bright red and a dark red. It has a frosted finish which isn't for everyone but does mean that it's more moisturising on the lips than other formulas.
It depends on how you feel about frost finishes but I love the sheen that it gives to my lips, I feel like it's almost a hint of rose gold in it.
Like with all lip products, the dryer the finish the longer it lasts so you would expect to apply it a little more regular than a matte finish. This colour is stunning if you're looking for something a little darker. I do think that it's not quite as pigmented as other MAC lipsticks but this is only a really slight difference. Overall this is a stunning lipstick!
