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 🙂

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.

Statement Necklace!!! My Obsession

Hello My Angles 🙂

I remember when I was little I used to try my Mom’s Jewellery whenever I got the chance. Her collection of Jewellery was exclusive and I was in awe of everything. One of the piece was an exclusive Necklace with Pearls encrusted in it…I have never seen anything like that… even till now. I guess that Necklace has induced in me my love for Pearls and Statement Necklaces.

Yesterday I went on Dinner with Mr. Husband at newly opened DLF Mall Of India, Noida. They had street bazaar theme going on at the Ground floor where various vendors had Setup their Stores. I was navigating between stalls and stopped at the counter of a stall having beautiful and exclusive collection of Earrings and Necklaces. This copper colored necklace caught my eye and I was instantly hooked to it.

I was really eager to share it with you all So planned a look on copper theme. I have used a Copper eyeshadow and Golden Glitter Stackables by Faces on top of it. Lipstick is MAC All Fired Up, you can read the review of it below:

MAC All Fired Up: Magic of the Night Collection for Holiday 2015

I am mighty please with how this look turned out. This necklace is so versatile and beautiful that I can pair it with any color and I am sure it will upstage any outfit.

Leaving you all with the pics 🙂 Love you- PJK

My Experience: Packaging was the first thing that caught my eye and it was love at first sight. Purple color of the lipstick case is so hypnotising…it almost draws you towards it 😉 I immediately asked SA what color options are available and to my surprise the collection had All Fired Up included.

MAC All Fired Up-Magic of the Night Collection for Holiday 2015-swatch

I will describe MAC All Fired Up as Bright Reddish Fuchsia but it does not have strong blue undertone. It looks warm on application. All Fired up is a permanent shade of the Retro Matte Collection. Being this member of Retro Matte Collection, it is super matte and dry. But it does not tug much on lips and application is quiet smooth as compared to Ruby Woo. I have been wearing this color a lot lately and absolutely love everything about it. It stays on me for 7+ hours and leaves a pink stain behind. All you need to make sure to properly exfoliate and moisturise the lips before application.

Pros:

  1. Limited Edition absolutely gorgeous Packaging.
  2. Beautiful Reddish Fuchsia color that would suit mostly all Skin tones.
  3. Member of the Renowned Retro Matte collection by MAC.
  4. Intense Pigmentation.
  5. Smooth Application.
  6. Long Lasting.
  7. Matte Finish.

Cons:

  1. Make the lips dry after few hours of wear.
  2. Limited Edition Packaging, however you will get MAC All Fired Up in black case packaging anytime as this is included in Permanent range.

Rating: 4.5/5. Everything is good about this Lipstick, just make sure to take care of the dryness aspect. Properly exfoliate and moisturise the lips before application and keep dabbing the lip balm every few hours.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil: Review

MRP: Rs. 1,400

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging1 MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-review1

Today I am reviewing the newest addition in my Makeup Collection, the one I have been eyeing for sooooo long. Well, technically I had been looking for MAC Heroine Lipstick since an year and it was always OUT OF STOCK but then one fine day the SA said they don’t have the lipstick but Lip pencil is available. I wasted no time and picked up this beautiful Color and walked out of the store with a BIG SMILE on my face.

The pictures below will give you clear idea of the packaging. The color coded end is really helpful in recognizing the Liner in my Makeup stash.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging2 MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-bullet

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-swatch

My Experience:
The color of MAC Heroine Lip pencil is BRIGHT PURPLE, you won’t come across this color easily in other Makeup brands and that makes it so appealing to me. It is one of that unique shade which gets you many compliments whenever you wear it.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil’s texture is neither creamy nor dry but there is slight tugging and pulling during application, the beauties with severe dry lips please stay away from this. 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.

After wearing this for few hours I have to put lip gloss or balm on the top to minimize the puckering it causes.It is not hydrating so addition of lip balm on top will take care of that. I will sum up the Pros and Cons below.

Pros:

1. Unique shade.
2. Matte Finish.
3. Insanely Pigmented.
4. No Bleeding
5. Minimal Transfer
6. Precise Application

Cons:

1. The formula feels dry after few hours of wear time.
2. Not an ideal formula for dry lips.
3. Sharpening leads to product wastage.

MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out: Review and Swatches

MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out: Review and FOTD

MRP: Rs. 1800

MAC Vamplify collection 2015-lip liner

MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out-ingredients

MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out
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:

http://bit.ly/21bL01r 

MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out-review MAC Vamplify Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Dark Out-bullet

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.

MRP: Rs. 1450

Hey Ladies, how are you? Hope you all are enjoying summer heat..eh 😉

Today i am going to review one of my favorite coral red shade from MAC’s permanent Matte range.  This is my most favorite coral lipstick so far. It uplifts my mood and gives a very nice glow on my face

MAC describes it as Vivid Bright Coral Red shade. The texture is creamy and pigmentation is great, one swipe gives the enough color coverage and you can build the color as you like. However being this a matte shade it is bit on dry side after few hours of application and you need to moisturize your lips beforehand. It is a long wearing lipstick and i had a wear time of 7-8 hours, snacks and meals included. If you are a fan of bright colors then this lipstick won’t disappoint you, it gives a nice Aura on the face and let your lips do all the talking (obviously) 🙂

Pros:

  1. Beautiful bright Coral Red shade.
  2. Matte Finish.
  3. Creamy texture and glides smoothly on lips.
  4. Very good color coverage.
  5. Highly pigmented.
  6. Long wearing.
  7. Easy to remove.
  8. Gives a nice glow on face.

Cons:

  1. Can leave the lips dry after some time, it is advised to moisturize your lips before application to avoid the dryness.

My Verdict: I love it and if you love bright shades then this color is for you. It attracts the right amount of attention and brightens the face instantly.  However It is definitely not a color for weak hearted.

Rating: 4.5/5

This is how it looked on HJK and me.

MAC viva glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick review and Swatch

MAC viva glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick

Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink Lipstick and matching Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

MAC viva glam miley-cyrus

The MAC viva glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick/Lipglass is launched in India in March. It is the latest collection of Viva Glam and this time in collaboration with Miley Cyrus. Few weeks ago I visited MAC in TGIP Noida to check this shade as I was intimidated by so much of hype created by media and bloggers regarding this new launch. Honestly I was not very excited when I tried it on my lips, firstly i found it too Neonish and secondly I found the coverage poor when I tried it on my upper lip which is slightly pigmented, I stopped then and there, wiped the lip and walked away.  Disappointed and heartbroken I left fuming and cursing the hype surrounding it. Few days later I saw a fellow blogger wearing this shade and nailing it totally and it got me thinking that May be I should give it a second chance. So this weekend again I went to the store with Mr. Husband and tried it on and surprisingly I liked it. I swiped it multiple times to build the color and saw that it covered my pigmented lip evenly and largely. Yes the Neon thing was still there but I noticed that it brightens my face unlike other neons. Mr. Husband is my biggest critic and gives his opinion openly and honestly , and he too liked the shade. So I took this beauty home and that is how I got my first Viva Glam lipstick. Enough of the story telling 🙂 let’s jump to the review now:

Packaging: It has limited edition packaging featuring Miley’s signature.

MAC viva glam-cover

MAC viva glam-miley-cyrus

Color: The color is bright pink with slight hint of Neon. It is a perfect color for summers and gives a nice glow to the face. If you love pink shades and have not tried Girl About Town and Impassioned by MAC yet then you should try this shade, it is a very pretty and vibrant pink. However it is not a very unique shade, you can find many dupes of it. I will do a separate post on that later.

Texture/Formula: The texture of the MAC Viva glam Miley Cyrus is very creamy and buttery. It doesn’t settles into lip lines but highlights any dryness on the lips.

Miley-cyrus-viva-glam

MAC viva glam miley cyrus cover

Application: Lipstick glides smoothly on the lips due to its buttery texture.  I would suggest to prep and moisturize your lips beforehand so as to get hydrated and soft lips through out the wear time.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is okay, the color has medium to buildable coverage. One swipe doesn’t cover the pigmented lips and you need multiple swipes to build the color. But the best part is that multiple swipes doesn’t make the lips look cakey or layered.

(Above is in normal light)

viva-glam-miley-cyrus-swatch
(Above is in flash light)

Longevity: It stayed on me for good 6-7 hours, it fades from the corners and middle of the lips during heavy meal and requires touch-up.

Staining: It stains the lips heavily, not sure why all the pink MAC lipsticks stains the lips 🙁

My Verdict: Overall i loved it, the color and texture is drool worthy. I am enjoying wearing it and loves the glow it gives on the face. However there is nothing unique about this lipstick, you can find many dupes of it.

Rating: 4/5

viva-glam-miley-cyrus-swatch_1

MAC viva glam miley cyrus lipstick

Pros:

  2. Nice Packaging with Miley’s Signature.
  3. Creamy and buttery texture.
  4. Glides easily on lips.
  5. Buildable color coverage.
  6. Long Wearing.

Cons:

  1. Easily Dupable.
  2. May not go well with dark skinned beauties due to its neon undertones.
  3.  Stains the lips heavily.

MAC Rebel lipstick review, swatch and FOTD

MAC Rebel lipstick:

I bought this lipstick last year, I was roaming around at Shoppers Stop GIP Noida and saw the SA at MAC wearing a very beautiful berry shade lipstick. I was not sure whether this shade would suit me but I thought to give it a try and I am really happy that I went outside of my comfort zone to try this shade. Let’s jump to the review now ladies.

MRP: Rs. 1450

Packaging: Typical black packaging with the name of the color written at bottom.

_DSC0629  _DSC0631

Color: Rebel is a deep plum shade with berry tones and has a subtle shine. It would suit mostly all the skin tones. It is not a matte lipstick but settles into semi matte finish after an hour.

rebel

_DSC0628

Texture/formula: Texture is very creamy and lipstick glides smoothly on lips. Formula is not too drying but my lips felt dry after 4-5 hours of wear time. So I advise to moisturise the lips beforehand.

Scent: It has the signature vanilla scent which fades away soon.

Pigmentation: This lipstick is highly pigmented. One swipe will provide the full coverage. Few people have experienced uneven finish but not me, as a remedy a berry shade lip liner can be used to provide even coverage.

Longevity: The lipstick stayed on me for 7-8 hours with slight fading around the corners and in middle of the lips.

Staining: Yes it stains the lips heavily and you need to remove it with a oil based makeup remover.

Pros: 

  • Nice deep berry shade.
  • Creamy texture
  • Highly pigmented
  • Satin finish which settles into matte finish after some time.
  • Long wearing

Cons:

  • Difficult to remove, stains the lips heavily.
  • Pricey

My verdict: I love it. This is my go to shade in winters as I prefer wearing dark shades in winters. Considering the positive points it have it will not disappoint you.

MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

So Mr. Hubby and I were passing my MAC counter and….

Mr. Hubby: You want anything honey?

Me: No (timidly and secretly wishing to lay my hands on Girl About Town, I had it in my wish-list for sooooooo long).

Mr. Hubby: Are you sure? (Oh!! I love that mischievous smile)

Me: Giggling….

And the next moment I was on the counter trying GAT on me and I loved it from that moment on.

MAC Girl About Town is a bright medium dark fuchsia pink Lipstick which possibly suits all skin tones. It has crème finish, you need not to prep your lips before applying this as it has the most forgiving texture and finish. It goes Opaque in just a single swipe. Although it has creamy texture but it doesn’t bleed and transfers minimally.  It has blue undertones and pops out really well and gives a warm glow on the face.

IMG_3153

 

IMG_3156

Pigmentation(5/5): It is very pigmented and one swipe gives the full coverage.

Texture/Formula(5/5): Formula feels hydrating and does not dry out the lips. It does not highlight the lip lines either.

Scent: It has the same vanilla scent like all MAC Lipsticks.

Longevity(5/5): It is a long wear lipstick. I love the kind of lipsticks which you just apply and then forget about the touch-ups. I am not a frequent touchup kind of person and find it really bothersome. It stayed on me for good 8-9 hours and leaves a lovely pink shade afterwards.

Application: Application is very easy, it doesn’t need any lip preparation beforehand. Glides very smoothly on lips.

The removal process is bit difficult though and requires a good makeup remover, still it leaves a slight pink tint.
