Mac Mocha

Mac Mocha (Satin)

The Mac website describes this as peachy yellow brown but I feel this is more of an orange brown shade. Mocha is from the Mac Mickey Contractor Collection launched in 2011.This is a great shade for medium skin tones. The color is work/office appropriate. While the application is smooth, I find this lipstick a bit […]

Mac Pink Pearl Pop

Mac Pink Pearl Pop (Cremesheen)

The Mac website describes Pink Pearl Pop as a frosted midtonal pink. This is a semi- opaque (or sheer) bright pink lipstick with subtle shimmer. The color is beautiful. What I love about this color is the fact that it is bright yet subtle in its own way. One has to be careful with the […]

Mac Plumful

Mac Plumful (Lustre)

The Mac website describes Plumful as a Blossoming rose-plum shade. This is a medium pinkish plum lipstick. It is moisturizing and feels very light on the lips. This lipstick has lustre finish and the intensity of the color can be controlled – one can wear it with sheer or semi–opaque intensity during daytime and build […]

MAC Who’s That Chick

MAC Who’s That Chick (Frost)

Who’s That Chick is a Limited Edition Lipstick from the RiRi Hearts Mac Fall Edition. It is an orange lipstick with generous amounts of golden–orange shimmer. When I first saw the lipstick, I asked myself – Why would someone put that color on the lips…why? But when I tried it on, it did not look […]

Mac Chatterbox

Mac Chatterbox (Amplified Crème)

The Mac website describes Chatterbox as a bright red pink. WhileChatterbox is bright and vivid, it is quite wearable. It is a beautiful girly pink color – ideal for summer days. Though it feels creamy while applying and does not dry the lips, after some time it does acquire a matte type of finish. It […]

Mac Polished Up

Mac Polished Up (Lustre)

The Mac website describes Polished up as a foxy brown shade. I would say Polished up is a brown lipstick with plum undertones. One can wear this as a daytime lip color or a night time lip color. It looks good when applied sheer too. Sheer application would work well as a daytime work/office look. […]

Mac Vegas Volt (Amplified Crème)

Mac Vegas Volt (Amplified Crème)

The Mac website describes Vegas Volt as full power coral shade. This is a coral shade leaning towards orange. In fact it sometimes looks neon. It looks very pretty in the tube but on the lips, it can look a little retro. I was a little disappointed on how it looked on my complexion (NC […]

MAC Creme In Your Coffee

MAC Creme In Your Coffee (Cremesheen)

The Mac website describes this as a creamy mid-tone pink brown – the description is quite appropriate. The application is effortless which coupled with the neutral color makes it ideal for daily wear. In my opinion, it will suit almost any complexion. Also, this is the sort of color that can be worn for any […]

Mac Up The Amp (Amplified Crème)

Mac Up The Amp (Amplified Crème)

The Mac website describes Up The Amp as lavender violet but I would say it is more violet than lavender. The formula is creamy and it just glides onto the lips effortlessly. This lipstick is from “Amplified” range of Mac lipsticks and therefore quite pigmented. The finish is shiny and opaque. This is one of […]
