The Fall season has officially arrived today, and I am welcoming it with a new lipstick. What better way is there?
Yesterday I marched down to the MAC counter looking for something in between office-appropriate and party lips. MAC Party Line Lipstick ($17.50) is a plummy red Cremesheen that fits the bill perfectly. It goes on quite sheer but layers easily to a gorgeous plum/berry colour that I oh so covet this season.
There are already several Cremesheens in my stash and from my experience, the dark colours go on very creamy and tend to bleed. Remember my Dita Von Teese inspired look? That crisp lip line was heavily Photoshopped. In person, that lip was one hot mess! So, lesson learned: lip liner is a must with Cremesheen lipsticks like Party Line.

Isn’t she pretty? She’s bold, yet the berry tones make her pretty wearable. By the way, after looking for swatches of this very lipstick all over the web, it looks like Party Line used to be a lighter plum red. It looks like Karla Sugar‘s swatch is close to what I have though. It’s prettier anyway.
Thoughts? Would you wear this in the office? I did. I guess that wimpy Arianne of 2009 has totally left the building, ha!
