MAC launched its Limited Edition “Matte Lip Collection” few weeks back. We all know the ‘bhagam bhaag’ after these limited edition shades in India and one hardly finds them available at the stores out here. I was one such female who never got a chance to pick these from the store.
MAC MATTE LIP COLLECTION – DAMN GLAMOROUS
The Matte Lip is here to stay. Create a standout look with the fashion-forward new shades of our iconic matte lipstickS.
The color although is bright but I don’t find it OTT or onto your face kind. It is a very pretty red color lipstick with enough brightness to enhance your whole look. I can wear it on regular days too as a stain. The shade undoubtedly is universally flattering.
The pigmentation is great and 2 swipes would give a perfect lay-off of color. It wouldn’t feather or bleed. And the color doesn’t settle in fine lines while fading away.
THE ‘YAY’ FACTORS
· A pretty unique pink red.
· Universally flattering shade
· Bright shade but not OTT
· Creamy and goes on smoothly.
· Great staying power.
· Highly pigmented
· Sturdy packaging
· Shade doesn’t bleed or feather
THE ‘NAY’ FACTORS
· A bit drying so you do need to apply a lip balm at the end of the day.
· Texture may accentuate the chapped lip area, so pre-exfoliation is needed.
RATING – 4.5/5
If you love MAC and you love bright reds (with a slight change) then you will love “Damn Glamorous” too. The name says it all!! I love this red addition in my already large red lipstick stash ;).
HnB Ed* – You look “damn glamorous” in this Nids 🙂 I love pinkish-reds a lot too!
