MAC COSMETICS - A brand that needs no introduction!
Confession : This is my first ever lipstick purchase from @maccosmetics!
Assumption History : I always felt that Mac is highly priced for we could find such quality and colour ranges in any other brand. At the same time I wanted to figure out what's there about Mac that makes people drive crazy. It was the time to check it out myself!
Here I am, with a purchase & with a review on @maccosmetics - Herione matte lipstick 💜
Shade details : This is a cool tone purple colour with pink hints to it. The colour is a mixture of pink and purple with higher concentration of purple to it.
Packaging : Quiet normal and nothing too luxurious about it.
Texture : Matte ! It is thick and a little difficult to apply as it is matte it doesn't go that smooth or creamy on the lips.
Opacity : It is opaque, you get the highest colour payoff with just one swipe.
Lasting power : It stayed on my lips for about 6-8 hours easily.
Quality : After few hours of application, you would see the lipstick settling down into the fine lines of your lips. You need to prep your lips before you go ahead with this shade.
Shade range : There are number of shades available in number of textures and there is definitely atleast one shade for everyone out there. I went mad choosing a single shade for myself. No one would come out empty handed from a Mac store unless they have empty pockets.
Price point : 1650/- from Mac store.
The price is still i feel is little on the higher side and I would rather buy multiple lipsticks in the price of one Mac lipstick and of the same or a little compromising quality ofcourse.
My take on it : Since I am a makeup beginner, investing on such expensive products is a little disheartening to me. I found nothing extra ordinary about these lipsticks to shed my pockets heavily. Although if these shades were available for a price under Rs 1000/- I would have a few more shades in my collection. But none the less, the quality has no complaints! I would go for another lipstick from Mac if there are no dupes in the market available.
Rating : 3.5/5
Less 1.5 ONLY for the price point.
