Today I’m reviewing a lovely wearable red from MAC’s latest launch - Après Chic collection.
Price : Rs 990 for 3 gm. Limited Edition.
My take on the Product
The lipstick comes in the standard black MAC Packaging and has the signature vanilla scent which I’ve begun to really like.
The formula is Cremesheen – it applies sheer in single swipe and pigmentation can be built up in 2-3 swipes. Once built up, it gives full opaque coverage to the lips. The texture is soft and smooth, it applies without tugging and glides smoothly on the lips. Its mildly moisturizing, not very much so but definitely not drying. It has a slightly glossy finish which I really like! The pigment is staining and it leaves a soft stain on my lips which lasts a while. This color wore well, over 4 hours easily though heavy meals might cause it to fade faster. The stain stayed for a few more hours.
While the formula is nice and comfortable, what drew me to this shade was the color! Après Chic is a lovely warm brick red with a tiny bit of pink in it, its like a redder version of Brick-o-la. The shade would look good on a lot of complexions and is subtle enough for day wear. If bright reds are not your cup of tea, you should definitely go for a shade like this! I’d definitely recommend this to everyone! The collection was launched few days back and some stores might still be carrying this shade.
The GOOD about MAC Après Chic Lipstick :
- Soft, smooth texture
- Glides easily, not tugging
- Buildable pigmentation
- Good wear
- Comfortable and moisturizing formula
- Wearable soft red
The NOT-SO-GOOD about MAC Après Chic Lipstick :
- Not super moisturizing!
- Limited Edition
MAC Après Chic Lipstick is a lovely warm red with a hint of pink that would flatter a lot of skin tones. The formula is comfortable to wear – soft smooth texture, buildable pigmentation and decent wear time. Its Limited Edition and I’d definitely recommend it!
