Hello my Gorgeous ladies,
Today I am here with a review on MAC Mystical Lipstick from the newly launched Aquatic collection. I was so excited about this collection since months, and got this lipstick without any hassle, Thanks to Sammanita Di again for booking my lipstick.
So without blabbering, I’ll jump straight into the review.
About MAC Aquatic Collection:-
Sirens of the deep inspire an aquascape of shades, as waves of tarnished olive, seafoam and darkened plum surrender to water’s enticing spirit. Sultry eyes take on a subtle radiance, while luminous Extra Dimension Blush washes over cheeks, creating a goddess glow. Under the sea, nails glisten in aquatic chrome and metallic Nail Lacquer, as Lipstick, Lipglass and Lip Pencil dive deep into colour. Limited-edition teal packaging, dramatically accented with sheer water droplets.
My take about MAC Mystical Lipstick :
Packaging:- The packaging is super attractive. It comes in a teal shinny metallic tube with sheer water droplets all over it, which gives a constant wet look to the packaging. The box in which the tube comes in, has the same color and texture . Love the “aquatic” packaging.
Price:- 1350 INR for 0.10 oz
Shade:- MAC describes it as a mid-tone creamy rose. On me, it a beautiful dusty rosy pink which is great as an everyday wear. But it might look totally different on different people, like it can be pinker, redder or browner depending on your skin tone. It has enough color to brighten up your morning no make-up look and it works well with heavy night eye makeup too. It can flatter on a lot of skin tones.
Texture:- Belongs to the Creamsheen family, and thus it is creamy in texture and leaves a gorgeous sheen to lips. It applies evenly without tugging and pulling, is perfectly moisturizing and keeps lips soft for hours.
Pigmentation:- It has a rich color pay off. Two swipes are enough for a full coverage on me, though women with heavily pigmented lips might need a few more layers.
Staying Power:- It is from creemsheen range which though not outstanding, has decent staying power of 4-5 hours on me.
Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-
What I LIKED about MAC Mystical Lipstick :-
- Pretty shade.
- Works as beautiful day wear and can be complemented with heavy night makeup too.
- Creamy and moisturizing.
- Gives a beautiful sheen to lips.
- Applies evenly.
- Doesn’t settle on fine lines.
- Doesn’t bleed.
- Good color-payoff and staying power.
- Gorgeous aquatic packaging.
- Signature vanilla fragrance.
What I Don’t Like about MAC Mystical Lipstick:-
- MAC is already pretty expensive, and thanks to this limited edition, it is even more expensive.
It is a very pretty shade that flatters on a many, especially for the Indian skins. It is creamy, moisturizing and looks great on any time of the day. The gorgeous packaging makes the lipstick even more alluring.
Would I repurchase? I think no, I would never spend a whooping 1350 again. Moreover, MAC is hiking their price again, which means Limited Edition ones are going to be some 1700 in the near future. Ohh..!! Just a second, it is from their Limited Edition, hahahaha.. I won’t be able to buy even if I want.
Would I Recommend? A pretty muted rose, which would suit many. So unless you find a dupe, you can surely look for MAC Mystical.
Not exactly similar, but these come close to MAC Mystical lipstick.
NYX Thalia, NYX Black Rose, Rimmel Moisture Renew Rose Blush, Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Dusty Rose, Nars Dolce Vita sheer Dusty Rose, L’oreal Old Rose, Miss Claire 18, Chambor Heavenly Rose, Nars Pure matte in Bangkok,
(my no makeup look..Just a thin stroke of kajal on waterline and mystical on lips)
