Yes, we all need one. If you are using any other chocolate brown lipliner, throw it out. I mean it might work, but it's no MAC Chestnut! Come on ladies, how many of them do we go through a year??? When you go to the MAC store, they have the Chestnuts in a bowl beside the register becuase they know that they will be selling one every 7 minutes! It's serious, I wear my Chestnut with browns, golds, pinks, purples, the list never ends. It can all be done. Just make sure that you blend it down! I find that applying a lip moisturizer first makes applying and blending lip liner effortless.
