I should have named this blog something more related to lipsticks , as my every other post is on lipsticks. But what to do? I am obsessed with lipsticks!!! Plus every picture/selfie I post on Instagram, I get so many questions on my lipsticks or the shade I am wearing. Therefore I make it a point to cover as many lipsticks from my collection so that you guys get the swatches and my review on them.
So today I wanted to cover the most popular lipstick shades from MAC cosmetics in India that will suit all Indian skin tones. I have chosen 1 shade that is soft and subtle :ideal for everyday wear and 1 bold shade which can be worn at night or for more glam look.
- Mehr – The soft pink shade
- Ruby Woo – The Classic red shade
Price: Rs. 1,450/- each
Availability in India: Available across all Mac stores.
Review: I don’t think MAC lipsticks need any more raving. Everyone is aware how perfect they are and they should own at least 1 of their shades. To make your life easier I wanted to write about these 2 shades which will suit all Indian skin tones.
Mehr: It is a perfect pink lipstick. It has a bit of blue undertone. It is a everyday sort of shade that anyone can rock. It was supposed to be a limited edition shade few years back, but due to popularity it has become a permanent shade in MAC matte collection. The texture is creamy and applies matte on the lips. It is not drying at all or flaky. But if you have will dry lips like me you would do well hydrating lips before applying any lipstick for that matter. It stays on me for 4-5 hrs straight without budging. But after meals, I need to re-apply it. Overall it is a flattering pink shade that will suit basically anyone. If you are looking for a pinkish, subtle, everyday sort of colour with no fuss then this is your answer.
Ruby Woo: The most popular lipstick shade from MAC. If you are looking for the perfect red shade this has to be your pick. Ruby woo is the one shade which will always be present in all lists of most popular lipsticks, trust me. It is this one shade that can be worn all year round, with any outfit and any makeup look. It is such a beautiful shade of classic red. It belongs to the Retro Matte collection of MAC. It is matte finish and therefore a bit drying. So you need to prep your lips beforehand. it stays on for almost 6 hrs with no flaking. Again this shade will flatter all skin tones across the globe. It is definitely a must-have in your makeup kit. You won’t regret it.
