Darling Duos: MAC Cyber Lipstick and Dior Shadow Vernis

MAC Cyber(A52)
Dior Shadow(783)

I love the feeling you get when you stumble across things that work well together, like two day old toast you forgot in the toaster and left over guacamole from Chipotle.  I got that same feeling when I noticed MAC Cyber in Nordstroms while wearing Dior Shadow Vernis. It was like hey this lipstick matches my nails.  

Dior Shadow (783) – two coats

Dior Shadow is a blueish purple color with a tinge of goldish shimmer which is visible on the nail. I think it looks really pretty both in the bottle and on the nail.

MAC Cyber is a dark satin lipstick. It’s more grape blood than oxblood but I think it’s a really nice Fall color, and might be a good alternative for someone looking for a vamp look that’s not red based.

In the pic above I’m wearing MAC Cyber over a lip balm.  Cyber is not the type of color I would normally wear on it’s own, as the darker colors tend to unflatteringly highlight my bottom lip in all its Sponge Bob level crusty glory. But I’ve posted the pic here all in the name of science accurate blogging.  

Chanel Troublant Allure Gloss(68), Dior Shadow(783), MAC Cyber(A52)

I like how if you look at the top of the MAC lipstick that’s now coated with the Troublant Gloss, it looks similar to the swirls in the bottle of the Dior Shadow Vernis. Now the duo look more like cousins on their father’s side. You see the resemblance don’t you?

In the pics above I’m wearing Chanel Troublant Gloss over the MAC Cyber. This is how I would normally wear Cyber. At least that’s what I’ve done the 1 & 1/2 times I’ve worn it so far 🙂

What duos have you guys been wearing lately ?

    I totally agree with you – that stunning MAC lipstick is a wonderful and unique way to play out your inner vampire for Halloween, aside from swaying towards the typical 'red-based' makeup. I absolutely love your blog and have followed you – in my opinion, you deserve so many more lovely followers! There's a new post up on my blog right now. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, so feel free to stop by and follow if you'd like to! 🙂 x♡, Fatima (fashionpilgrim)Twitter: @fashpilgrimInstagram: @fashionpilgrim
