PAC Retro Matte Gloss In shade 14 Review, Swatch & FOTD
Hi Lipstick lovers!!
I feel very proud when Indian brands make cosmetics which are at par with the best. One such brand I came across is PAC cosmetics. This brand was well known for its brushes but now they have a huge line of makeup which is preferred by a lot of Makeup professionals.
I happened to be at their store once and I was appalled by the number of artists visiting their tiny store in Mumbai. It has definitely built a huge fan base. I happened to pick up a few products from their store and one of the products was PAC Retro Matte Gloss in shade 14. Also, they are nominally priced, unlike foreign brands which offer similar quality.There are a couple of things which intrigued me about the brand. First, their claim that every product has a unique FDA approved code and second, the products used have been bought from Germany, Spain, UK, Canada, Korea, Hong Kong and China, and are completely free from any heavy metal or animal testing.Let’s see what the brand says..A revolutionary new lightweight, non-drying formula in our liquid lipsticks! Gives you an opaque payoff with just one swipe! Our liquid lipstick dries down matte right after one swipe and lasts through thick and thin!
Price- Rs.550 for 6.5mlIngredients;
PackagingIt comes in a classy black colored tube package with an ombre effect of the lipstick color towards the end. And it comes with a pretty transparent narrow tip applicator which eases the application of the lipstick.
Color, Pigment The color is a beautiful cool tone Pinkish red, which instantly brightens up your face and just one swipe is enough for the perfect look. And it will suit all Indian skin tone.
My experience-I am an absolute lipstick hoarder and liquid lipsticks are my new bae. Many times liquid lipsticks can be extremely drying on the lips, but not in the case of this lipstick, but I do recommend to apply lip balm before application. Another thing that I liked is that it doesn’t settle on the fine lines of the lips, which can be such a turn off. This lipstick can easily last for 7-8hrs with light meals in between, after which it starts to fade.I love to apply this lipstick when I want to do a minimum makeup look for day, also this shade goes well for night look on your LBD.Another point, this lipstick doesn’t come out easily with micellar water and it leaves stains on the lips. One needs an oil based remover to remove it completely.
