MAC Huggable Lipcolour in Out for Passion review

MAC recently launched the Huggable Lipcolor range. I was on a vacation when this collection was launched and so did not have much choice to pick up shades, but fortunately, I found a beautiful shade which was still not sold out. This collection was released in India on the 12th February.

MAC Says –

A new high-shine formula featuring an array of creamy emollients, providing a lasting, glossy finish that leaves lips smooth and sculpted. A unique gel base allows each shade to smooth effortlessly onto the skin, with a feather-light finish giving immediate moisture, lasting up to six hours.

There were 12 shades that were released as a part of this collection –

Commotion: Deep cool plum cream

Red Necessity: Deep warm wine cream

What A Feeling!: Mid-tone cool pink cream

Feeling Amourous?: Mid-tone fuchsia cream

Love Beam: Mid-tone warm pink cream

Out For Passion: Soft warm rose cream

Touche: Light beige cream

Fresh & Frisky: Soft neutral peach cream

Cherry Glaze: Orange red cream

Fashion Force: Cool coral cream

Rich Maroon: Mid-tone chestnut cream

MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Out for Passion

I bought the shade ‘Out For Passion’, which is a nice muted rose shade. It’s a very every day, hassle free color. Something that you can wear with any look and any occasion. The pigment is sheer and doesn’t build up a lot. The good thing is that it wear-off really well. It leaves a slight stain behind which looks really natural.

The formula is very similar to Revlon Lip butters, but a little better. It is really easy to apply and doesn’t feel sticky. It’s really moisturizing. I really like this for an everyday wear, especially for work, when I’m sitting in air conditioning the entire day and my skin and lips start to feel dry and dehydrated.

MAC claims this formula lasts for “up to 6 hours.” I felt that it did not last for more than 3-4 hrs without eating. I have to reapply every time I eat or drink something.

The packaging is really chic! It comes in a steel grey metal tube.

Overall, I know that I will get a lot of use out of this bullet and if it is relaunched I will pick up as many colors as I can J. I would give it a 4.5/5.

Nyassa Oceana Foaming Face Scrub – Review

I received a sample size Nyassa Oceana Foaming Face Scrub in my october FabBag. I generally do not review a sample but this is such a great product that I had to do a complete review. Though I received a sample I have been using this for around 3 weeks now as my everyday morning cleanser and scrub.

Nyassa says –

A sweet way for a soft skin starts with Nyassa’s exotic body scrubs that exfoliates, polishes and moisturizes you skin. The Oceana Face & Body scrubs give your skin an enriched cleansing. It creates luxurious and fragrant foam that cleanses your body thoroughly leaving behind a fragrance that lasts long. Formulated with apricot, the scrub leaves behind a fresh, soft and younger looking radiant skin.

Price – Rs 600 for 200 gm.

I have loved all Nyassa products so far and this is no exception.

The Oceana Face Scrub has a tub packaging with a tin lid and a plastic transparent body. It is quite a bulky thing so not exactly travel friendly.

It smells like a beach everyday morning when I open the tub. It’s an amazing fresh aqua smell that instantly wakes me up everyday!

It is a thick transparent gel with apricot granules. Once you apply it to the face, it starts to lather and the scrub starts cleansing and exfoliating. I like that the apricot granules are mild and not harsh so it is perfect for those with sensitive skin. It’s a very mild product and has not caused any issues to my skin. I think it will work well with all skin types. My skin feels really comfortable after use.

It’s a great two in one product. I will give it a 4.5/5.
