MAC Cosmetics has launched Matte Liquid Lipsticks this Summer in India. These are included in permanent range and you can get them in any MAC Cosmetics Outlet, however they are highly in demand so most likely you will see them OUT OF STOCK at their stores.

I could not get my hands on them when they were firstly launched couple of months back, however MAC has restocked them recently and I got this beautiful Red colour called FEELS SO GRAND.

MY REVIEW

MAC Cosmetics defines FEELS SO GRAND as DEEP TRUE RED which looks very close to RUBY WOO. The Pictures above will give you a clear picture of how the packaging is. The applicator is applause-worthy, it makes the application of lip colour very easy and smooth. MAC Feels so Grand is intensely pigmented and does not require lip liner underneath. However, I read online that the lighter shades in this range are not very pigmented. Like all Retro Matte Lipsticks, Feels So Grand is very drying. So, make sure to prep your lips i.e. exfoliate and mositurise them properly before application. This Range is not an ideal choice for Ladies with severe dry Lips.

This Lipcolour goes fully matte within minutes of application and once it is set it does not budge at all, no transfer and no smudging. It is also very long lasting, I had a wear time of around 7 hours (meals, snacks and drinks included in between). It surely fades from the inner corner of the lips but nothing worth noticing.

All in all FEELS so GRAND does really feel grand and adds a very nice glow to the face. In the pics below I have kept my whole makeup very subtle and still the look feel so regal, just because of that beautiful Red colour 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5

MY REVIEW
Every MAC Launch gets me excited like a Child and I am an avid lover/admirer of all things MAC. I knew MAC Versicolour Stains were going to be launched soon in India but I was skeptical, doubtful and confused whether to buy them or not, mainly because I hate Glosses 🙁 I really can’t stand them. Reason: 1. They are not long wearing 2. They are poorly pigmented 3. Need quick touch-up and I am a lazy bum when it comes to reapplication of any makeup product. But the Key Claims by MAC on their official website got me excited once again. I mean a LONG WEARING LIP GLOSS or lets say STAIN…. reallyyyy…but how?? I knew then and there… I HAVE TO GET atleast one LIP STAIN from my hard earned money to try and review this beauty:)

I bought the shade LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP, Firstly because of color, Secondly because of the beautiful cylindrical packaging which shows the color through transparent panel and third because of the interesting name. Moreover if I disliked it as a Stain I have the option of using it on the top of MAC heroine Lip pencil I already have. Smarty Pants.. heh 😉

MAC Versicolour Stain Long distance relationship is a very beautiful Intense midtone violet color. The pictures above will give you clear idea of  packaging, the applicator is  great and I had no problem applying the Lip stain perfectly with it. The texture is very liquidy so I had to make sure that I take out just the right amount of product to avoid messy application. MAC Versicolour Stain Long distance relationship is supremely pigmented, i needed 2 swipes to form and even out the color. The formula of these Lip Stains is applaudable, the product clings to the lips like a pro and keep them moisturized and glossy. Gloss stayed on me for almost 4 hours and afterwards it leaves a beautiful violet stain which is fully matte. The Stain stayed as it is until i removed it with makeup remover. The color stain is actually very pigmented…. i truly applaud MAC for staying true to the claims.

To conclude, these Lips stains are actually a combination of LIP GLOSS+LIP STAIN, a very Unique product and I am glad that I invested my Money in it. I am not raving because i am a MAC Girl, I am raving because this product does what it claims. Ladies… get your hands on them before they go OUT of STOCK. However, I heard that they are going to be included in Permanent Line 🙂 Happy news, isn’t it.

Rating: 5/5.

My Initial Review:

The shade I got is, Aim to please… interesting name, isn’t it 🙂 It is dirty mauvery brown color. The packaging of these Velvetease Lip Pencil is so user friendly, these are twist up crayons with black matte outer case. The end of Velvetease Lip Pencils is color coded so you can easily identify the color in your makeup stash. The texture is creamy and glides very smoothly on lips. I am going to wear it for a day or two to test the drying and longevity aspect. Will update you soon Girls 🙂

Here is the lip swatch and picture of how AIM TO PLEASE looks on me.

Final Review:

So, like I said above that I will be testing the drying aspect and Wear time of this beautiful shade. I wore Aim to Please to Office yesterday and today and I must say that I am MIGHTY PLEASED with the wear time. It survived the lunch with slight fading around the inner corner of the lips which is common for all lipsticks that I wear, other than that it stayed intact. Being this a Matte Lipstick, it definitely makes the lips dry after long hours of wear. I would particularly applaud the beautiful color this lipstick has, the color gives a very sleek, muted and sophisticated feel to your whole look. I would totally recommends this to the Office Goers, this is a perfect nude shade to rock daily.

Summing up the Pros and Cons below:

Pros:

  1. Very Beautiful and wearable color, perfect for daily use.
  2. User Friendly and Easy to carry packaging.
  3. Glides easily on Lips making the application super easy.
  4. Matte Finish.
  5. Long Wear Time.
  6. Perfect Nude Shade- It does not make my face look dull unlike few other nude lipsticks I have tried in past.

Cons:

  1. Drying- makes the lips dry after few hours.

Rating: 4.5/5
