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.

I’m someone who gets drawn towards good hair products, especially once who help with frizzy hair. I have really frizzy hair, sometimes it appears more like wild dry bush on my head and so I have to do a lot to make it a little manageable and decent. I’m sure there are other girls who would feel that hair also have mood swings, mine has major mood swings. Sometimes I don’t have to do anything and other days I have to use a combination of products. My recent discovery that has done wonders to my hair is an oil, an oil that I use after wash, the ‘Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complexe’.
