Double Shot is a lovely mocha/chocolate brown. It is the closest shade to a bar of cadbury chocolate that I have ever seen in my life, to the point it actually looks good enough to eat! *mind starts to wonder towards the heaven that is cadbury land* Anyway back to the lipstick, the brown itself is a true creamy nude brown with no pink tones to it at all. Perfect if you are looking for a solid brown shade.
The texture of this lipstick is very creamy and not very drying which is a godsend if you have dry lips like me. The colour is extremely pigmented and comes across as near enough opaque on first application. The whole finish is very similar to a cremesheen finish, in terms of how it feels on the lips. Although it is a lot more opaque so doesn’t really need to be layered up as much as a cremesheen seems to.
Like other MAC lipsticks it has a slight chocolatey smell in the bullet, which really didn’t help my craving of chocolate! Like I said this isn’t a shade I would normally go for, I have to admit that it is slightly growing on me and I may be stealing it from my mum more often than she thinks!
As far as I am aware this is part of the permanent range of MAC lipsticks, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting your hands on one if you wanted! ♥
