Just when I thought I had enough vamp lipsticks in my collection, my cousin gifted me MAC Sin for Christmas and I fell in love. It’s perfect for the Winter season but can be worn all year round. I’ll be wearing it well into Spring and Summer. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t have it in my collection already but I figured out why. I’ll explain in a little bit.
MAC Sin is a deep, dark blue red matte. A true burgundy. I pulled out all of the similar shades in my collection to see if I had any dupes, and I did. That’s why the shade looked so familiar.
Sin and Talk That Talk are pretty much dupes, but Sin is so much better. Talk That Talk was a complete disappointment. It’s super dry, patchy and just doesn’t wear well. Sin is exactly what I wanted Talk That Talk to be. Cherry Bomb is close but it has a little more Red in it, and is not as matte. Zoe’s Red and Cranberry are both lighter.
MAC Sin is extremely pigmented and applies smooth, but it’s also very dry. You must exfoliate well and apply a moisturizing lip balm prior to application. It wears well for at least 4 hours without needing a touch up. If you were excited about Talk That Talk and felt let down, then you’ll definitely want Sin. It’s simply the bomb and I’m so glad to add it to my collection. I’m sending big hugs and kisses to my cousin for knowing me so well. If you love MAC Sin but want to save some coins, Wet n’ Wild Cherry Bomb is close enough to achieve the same look!
