In my previous review, I showed you a gorgeous blue based red from the Marilyn Monroe collection. Today I’m reviewing a juicy fuchsia from this iconic Limited Edition collection.
Price : Rs 1050 for 3 g
My take on the Product
The Marilyn Monroe collection lipsticks come in a Limited Edition packaging with an autographed image of Marilyn on the tube. The lipstick is creamy and smooth in texture, super pigmented and has the classic MAC vanilla fragrance. The lipstick has a soft satin finish which is one of my favorite finishes – its neither matte nor too glossy – just somewhere in between. It stays on really well since its richly packed with pigment. I found the lipstick formula fairly moisturizing and it did not tug at the dry/flaky bits on my lips. The formula feels light and comfortable on the lips and doesn’t have the heavy look that some pigmented lipstick tend to have. It wore quite well, over 6 hours and stained the lips heavily so the lips were not devoid of color for a long time. The color did not feather or bleed while I wore it, it did not settle into lines either. Overall, an excellent formula!
The shade is a gorgeous reddened fuchsia that would look stunning on all skin tones. I love reds but there’s something so powerful, feminine and fresh about fuchsia lip colors! The color is bright and bold but far from neon. You can wear it as a stain for a softer look in the day time and refresh the lip color directly from the tube for the night time. If you like hot pinks, this is a MUST–HAVE color for you!
The lipstick looks quite red in the tube but its very pink on the skin/lips. To see more pictures of the packaging, check my review of the shade Charmed I’m Sure from this collection.
What I’m wearing here :
On my Face : I visited the Clinique store today and has a lovely experience – thanks to the PR and the store staff! I tried the Super Balanced foundation (05) in the store (which I’m wearing here) along with the Blended Face Powder, Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector (it really does minimize the appearance of pores!). After coming back from the store I just dabbed a bit of powder on my face before taking these pictures and you can see what a nice natural finish this foundation gives to my skin! I’m definitely picking it up next time I head over to Clinique!
On my eyes : MAC Paint Pot Genuine Treasure (LE), Bourjois Effet Smokey eyes pencil (Smoked Brown) and Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. Under eyes – Clinique Airbrush Concealer (02)
