What MAC has to say:
"Lips meet Azealia Banks' high style in a high-comfort shine Lipstick in a deep, rich plum with an amplified finish."
What I have to say:
I really love the color, it is a true plum. It is very opaque, but not entirely, & it has a smooth, buttery texture. If you're like me & you LOVE high opacity lipsticks, you can build the color up a bit, but when I did my lips felt a bit too greasy which I'm not crazy about. I applied it again using MAC Magenta lip pencil underneath & I liked the way it looked & it didn't leave my lips really slippery. Yung Rapunxel is also really long-lasting, like almost all lipsticks it smudged when I rubbed my finger across my lips, but there was still a lot of color left.
On the left are swatches of (From top to bottom) Kat Von D's Homegirl, Yung Rapuxel & MAC's Rebel in natural light & on the right are the same swatches in artificial light. These are the only purple-y lipsticks I had to compare it to, but you can definitely see that YP is a true plum shade. I'm gonna try & do an Ombre look with these babies & see how it comes out.
After two layers of Yung Rapunxel. Don't mind my sloppy application I was super excited haha.
Using MAC's Magenta lip pencil. It definitely intensified the opacity, but it did change the color a little too much for me, so I'll be shopping around for another lip liner to pair with it.
All-in-all I really liked the product. It's nice & smooth & has a pretty nice opacity. On the website it looked almost identical to rebel to me, but as you can see in the swatches, it's definitely different. If they ever re-stock I would definitely buy a second one just for back-up.
Have you guys gotten your Yung Rapunxel yet? What do you think?
