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 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.

Friday FOTD – Green eyeliner and nude lips

Friday to me is one of the more relaxed day of the week. I generally don’t do my regular all steps with regards to makeup. I try to keep it simple with emphasis on either my lips or eyes. I do not do much with skin and keep it more nature and let my spots show a little.

Today I decided to wear a green eyeliner to go with my shirt. I also feel that green eyeliner looks really good for brown eyes. Below is what I did to achieve the look.

MAC Embrace Me Lipstick Review

MAC Look in a Box – All About Pink - Embrace Me Lipstick

MAC Embrace Me Lipstick came as a part of the MAC – Look in the box collection.

MAC Look in a Box – All About Pink - Embrace Me Lipstick

The color is described as “bright fuchsia cream.” It’s dark fuchsia with blue undertones. It is a matte satin finish. It has a slight shimmer as well.

The application is a little creamier than the other matte colors. In one application only it leaves a rich opaque color.

The staying power is good. It lasted a good 5-6 hrs and post which it leaves a stain behind.

The lipstick is neither hydrating nor drying. I just make sure that I scrub and moisturize my lips before I apply this shade as its has more matte finish.

MAC Twig Lipstick – Review

MAC Twig Lipstick

I’m someone who likes to wear bright colors at all times..but then there are those 5 days where you have to spend 9 to 10 hrs at a place called ‘office’. That’s a place where you are supposed to look all grown up and serious. MAC twig is the best color to be worn at places like those!

MAC Twig Lipstick

MAC describes Twig as Soft muted brownish-pink (Satin). Twig is a satin finish lipstick. This is a type of shade that looks amazing on all Indian skin tones and that’s one reason why this shade is most times out of stock in India.

The color is a warm brown pink, more brown than pink. On my lips lit looks a little lighter on my lips than what it looks in the bullet.

MAC Twig Lipstick

Twig has satin finish, which means that it’s a creamy semi-matte finish. Creamy and semi-matte doesn’t go well together. All I want to say is that when you apply it it’s really creamy but over some time it’s more semi-matte and after 4-5 hrs. it gets dry on the lips.

It’s much pigmented and so one swipe works best. If you apply 2-3 coats it looks cakey.

MAC Twig Lipstick

Overall a very nice serious look color and looks amazing with peach or pink blush.
