MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out: Review and FOTD
MRP: Rs. 1800
MAC Vamplify Collection for Fall 2015 is launched in India this month, it is a limited collection range and consists of 17 Lip glosses and 12 Pro Longwear Lip Pencils. I love to wear dark shades during Fall season and that is why I chose Dark Out. MAC defines the Dark Out as Rosy Pink but it is actually a Burgundy plum.
You can browse below link to see what MAC has to say about this beautiful Lip Liner:
MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out has dry formula so there is tugging and pulling during application, the beauties with severe dry lips please stay away from this range. I have to properly moisturise and prep my lips before the application. The Lips pencil settles very well on the lips and transfers very less.
Dark Out is a very difficult color to pull off, you need to apply it very carefully and evenly otherwise it gives a very sluggish and uneven look. After wearing this for few hours I have to put lip gloss or balm on the top to minimize the puckering it causes. So I suggest to use it as a liner for a lipstick base and avoid using it on his own.
Despite of having the Dry formula I am in love with MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out. It is not one of those products which you can apply any time without giving much thought. You need to make sure your lips are in best condition when you apply this lip liner.
I had a wear time of 7-8 hours, it fades from the corner of the lips after a heavy meal.
My Verdict: I totally loved it, MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out elevates the whole look and is perfect for Fall Season. Just make sure to prep your lips before applying this, if this aspect is taken care of then you are good to go 🙂
Best to use it as a base for Lipstick and your lipstick will stay for hours. But if you want to use it as is on the lips like I do, then you have to make sure to moisturise your lips and top it off the liner with lip balm after few hours of wear time. This way you will take care of the drying aspect of the lip liner.
Rating: 4/5. One mark deducted for Drying texture and ability to highlight the dry and flaky lips.
Note: In the pics above I have deliberately used a Lighter Foundation as I was playing with the makeup to create a Halloween look. Below is the pic I have clicked with my Phone, will be posting my Halloween look in a separate post.
