Dark side is described as a dark burgundy, and surprisingly the swatch on the Mac webside matches the shade quite accurately. I think this would be perfect shade for a "bold lip" kind of look, with flawless base, strong eyebrows, some mascara and contour. I however decided to go on a full swing with the Dark Side and paired it up with silver smoky eye and perfect eyeliner.
Here's the swatch in the shadow.
Especially with such dark shade you would need to use a lip-liner in order to achieve that perfect coloured lip. I'd recommend trying out Mac Beet or Nightmoth.
This is an amplified finish, which stands for a creamy highly pigmented texture. Extremely long wear, with a great stain power. Overall: one of my all time favourites!
Stay tuned for next week!
