Evil Queen Regina’s Lipstick

I’ve gotten hooked on watching the tv series Once Upon a Time on Netflix. Its from the creators of Lost, my previous Netflix addiction. A lot of the actors from Lost turn up on Once Upon a Time. One of the things I like most about the show is the amazing makeup and costumes. My favourite character is the “Evil Queen” Regina, played by actress Lana Parrilla. I am in love with the lipstick she wears, a deep, rich plum:

After several episodes spent thinking how I would love to have that shade, I googled “What lipstick does Lana Parrilla wear on Once Upon a Time?”. Turns out, someone had asked her that very same question on twitter and she answered.

MAC Capricious and Plum LiplinerMAC Capricious is a lustre that MAC describes as a “fanciful rose plum.” MAC Plum Lip Pencil is more of a brown plum. I immediately loved Plum lipliner – an instant favourite. Together they make a fantastic lip combo. The liner makes Capricious darker and gives it more of a purpley-plum undertone.

Now, it doesn’t look exactly the same on me as it does on her, but I still really love it. If you have fair skin and dark hair and are looking for that deep, rosy-plummy shade to give you an I-just-stepped-out-of-a-fairy-tale look, you would like this 🙂

Have you watched Once Upon a Time? Which characters’ makeup looks are you loving?

Thanks for stopping by ❤

    Can I be a complete idiot here and ask how you wear this? I like never wear make up and bought these products and now I’m like ok so lip pencil…. How does that work?!


    • That’s not idiotic at all! I like to fill in my lips lightly with the liner from the inside out, rubbing my lips together (really similar to applying lipstick). I make sure my lips are hydrated with some lip balm before hand. That way the liner acts as a base or primer for the lipstick. The cool thing about using different liners underneath is that you can really customize the shade of any lipstick. Its the combo of Plum and Capricious that gets you the really striking deep plum lip colour. And sometimes I just use a liner topped with lip balm.

    Thank You So Much for posting this! I was wondering what lip color she was wearing – and the fact that it’s MAC is beyond epic. I picked up both the liner and the lipstick – loving them both.
    Rocking my Evil Queen look! Thank you much!
