Onto today's star - Dubonnet, a very unique yet classic shade.
Mac describes it as "Deepened Claret", which is a very fancy way of describing deep brick colour. It's not quite red, not quire burgundy, not quite cherry either, it's not more not less a brick colour. This shade I think would suit all skin tones, from the fairest to the deepest! It's a very unique and interesting shade, which I'm sure you would all get plenty of compliments on!
I very often reach for Dubonnet when I'm not quite sure what would I like to wear on my lips, it always seems to be the shade, which pulls my whole make-up together whatever it is! If you already have your standard red and regular burgundy, investing in a lovely brick colour would be just a perfect decision for the cold upcoming months! I would also consider Dubonnet as a very "special occasion" appropriate! It's not too dark, nor too light either. Very grown up shade, using which you could create some iconic looks!
To compliment this lovely shade I went for a dirty golden eyeshadow, which I've patted all over the lid adding a little bit of a taupe eyeshadow in the crease for definition, followed by flicked eyeliner and very defined brows! I've added some bronzer on the cheeks for this glowing look!
As always mentioning the finish is a must! Dubonnet has an Amplified finish, which is by far my favourite! It's the creamiest, loveliest and easiest to work with (in my opinion). It's not quite matte, I'd say it has a hint of glossy finish, but it's hardly noticeable! You get so much pigment without the feeling of dryness or uncomfortable thickness. Absolutely lovelyyyy!
And swatches of course!
