FOTD: Throwback

Remember when dark liner and ashy nude lipstick was all the rage? Okay, who are we kidding… some folks are still rocking that look. I was guilty of that combination once upon a time. And recently… while staring at MAC’s Ruffian Naked Lipstick… I decided to do it again.

I initially intended to pass on these. But after an unfortunate accident involving a hot car interior and my MAC Siss lipstick, I needed a ‘nude’ replacement. And the other two… well… they just kind of ended up coming along for the ride.

(What, you thought I was going to swatch that on my lips? Yeah… no)
Ruffian Gold
This is a dead ringer for Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliant. If you have that one, pass on this one. They are nearly identical in hue, texture, and finish.
Ruffian Red
Perfect orange based (?) red. Its very warm, and really perfect for the coming Autumn/Winter season. 
I’ll get plenty of use out of all three. Although Ruffian Naked is more ‘pink’ than Siss, it’ll still serve my ‘nude’ lip needs just fine.
