Most of us get confused by seeing large number of lipstick in MAC store especially for Indian skin which is medium/tan skin tone.Yesterday I tried emormous amount of lipsticks at MAC and figured out some eight shades which will suit woman between NC 40 – NC45.Most of these shades hides pigmentation and the lipstick finish and some other points I will take them individually
- MAC Brick -O-la - This is not brick shade at all its more of a soft berry shade or a deep rose shade and if you have insanely dark pigmented lips then it can your MLBB.It has an amplified finish and is very moisturising.
- MAC Cream Sheen stay in touch – This is a brown shade with pink undertones.It’s a great shade for college going girls or woman working in places where they can not wear too loud lipstick.It will compliment all looks fabulously .
- MAC Girl About Town Lipstick – If you like bold lips or do not have time to do your eyes then this lipstick can be your savior.It will go well with warm olive skin tone , hides pigmentation , opaque, non drying with its amplified finish and best thing it will leave the tint behind even if the lipstick gets removed.I have a similar shade from MAC Stylishly yours collection named something new. During the day when you don’t want to wear too bright shades then dabbing some MAC flesh lipglass will tone down this shade and look flattering.
- MAC Mocha Lisptick - A peachy brown satin texture shade and can be a perfect nude for people between NC 40-NC45.It’s neither too dark or too light just perfect kinds.If you love smokey eyes and wear them on and off then this lippi can be your HG.
- MAC Brave lipstick- This lippi will go more on paler complexion as I do see blue undertones in it .It was little less moisturising than above mentioned lipstick but then I am not too sure about it.I guess it will be flattering on those who will be around NC 34-35.
Swatches – Brave, Mocha & Girl about town.
- MAC Amorous Lipstick – It’s a plum shade with satin finish .This can be layered up to deepen the colour and if you are fond of these kind of shades then you might like this.I will prefer wearing it as a tint though for every day look.
- MAC Touch Lipstick – It’s nude brown shade with a gloss like finish.It has luster finish and it can be build up and hides pigmentation easily.Shade looks so mundane in the tube but in reality it can be a nice every day nude shade.Shade will appear different on various skin tone, some might find it brown with a bit of red some just a bright brown nude.
- MAC Hug Me Lipstick – This is a nude mauvish pink which is sheer and has a luster finish.It can be a every day shade for many specially office or college going girls.
Swatches – MAC Amorous, Touch , HUG me
