Reader's Request ~ Some Mac Lipstick Swatches


Natural Lips


Mac Hug Me (Lustre)


Mac Sweetie (Lustre)


Mac See Sheer (Lustre)


Mac Lustering (Lustre)

*I like Mac Lustre finish a lot but I do notice that they tend do dry out my lips if I don't reapply when they wear off, asap.



Mac Myth (Satin)

*I do not like Mac Myth at all. See how weird it looks! >.<  . Plus I am not a fan of their Satin finish.



Mac Profusion (Amplified)

* Not a fan of Amplified finish either. There's only one shade (Show Orchid) available in the Mac website, so I guess they'll discontinue it soon (?)



Mac Lickable (Amplified Cremesheen)

It was tricky to capture the actual color of Mac Lickable on camera. Mac describes it as 'Bright Clean Blue Pink' but I beg to differ. I think it has more of a reddish tone to it.

I hope you'll find these swatches helpful.
Have a great week!

  14. Myth has always scared me for some reason...now i know why. it will look horrible on anyone over NC 30. I often wonder whats the perfect nude lipstick for Indian tones.

  20. Hug Me looked the best! Though even your natural lip color is really nice :D

    & Myth I didn't like at all - It was the same color as my spoilt Lakme lippie :(

  21. Hey cynthia, i've a wheatish complexion and have quite pigmented lips. I went to MAC store to buy a lipstick but got super confused there :( i tried 'creme in my coffee' n thought it looked nice..it's a pink with brown undertones but then again i have a similar shade in revlon colorburst. and the SA said that it didnt really suit me. she suggested something which was too brown and too sheer for my liking. I really want your help with choosing a nice shade for daywear so that i dont end up buying something wrong! Pl help!

  22. Nila try peachy nude shades to lighten the pigmentation. It's like using a salmon color to cover under eye circles. Eg: Creme d nude, Shy Girl, Fanfare. U can also see how these look on yr lips ~ Cosmo, Patisserie, Twig. That's all I can think of for now. Lustre & Cremesheen finishes are my fav. Lemme know which one u picked.

  25. See Sheer is my favorite shade for the summertime....coral but not too bright!

  26. Wanna know if Lustering accentuates the fine lines on lips after application ? How long does it stay on your lips? Last time i went to the store i was really confused whether to buy this or not just because of these doubts. Pls Help…...

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
