MAC Crosswires Lipstick Review and Swatches.


MAC Cosmetics 

Hi everyone,

Its been a while that I have reviewed a MAC lipstick. With summers approaching fast, I thought that I should review the perfect summer lipstick MAC Crosswires. It is one of my fav lipsticks and looks very flattering on most skin tones.

About MAC Crosswire Lipstick:-


  • Price: Rs.990
  • The colour: MAC describes Crosswires as “clean pinky orange”.  The colour is a pretty coral shade which leans more towards orange. If I am not wrong its the opaque version of see sheer. It is an out and out summer shade and I see it working wonderfully with bright summery clothes.

  • The texture:Crosswires is a cremesheen lipstick,meaning its not dry but not hydrating either like the Amplified finish.The lipstick glides on smoothly on the lips ,but does settle into liplines on reapplication.

  • The pigmentation:Is just like most cremesheen lipsticks.It had decent pigmentation but girls with very pigmented lips will definitely need two swipes of this lipstick.But for girls who love See Sheer but cannot wear it because of their pigmented lips–this is your lipstick girls!

 MAC Crosswire Lipstick Swatches:-

  • Staying power:On an average the lipstick stays on me for about 3-4 hours with maybe drinks or light snacks in between..but this one definitely does not survive a full meal.But thats ok right-if lipsticks never need reapplication we would never finish them and then we would be left with no excuse to shop .

Overall thoughts:

MAC crosswires is cult fav amongst most MAC lovers.Its the perfect coral for Indian skintones and because its not a sheer lippie ,it will work for girls with pigmented lips.The texture is good and the staying power is decent.So i would highly recommend this lipstick if you like pinks and corals.


What I like about MAC Crosswires Lipstick:-


  • Beautiful pinky coral shade
  • A good alternative to See Sheer for girls with pigmented lips
  • Does not dry out the lips
  • Gives a soft sheen when applied


What I don’t like about MAC Crosswires Lipstick:-


  • Expensive
  • Can settle into lip lines when reapplied a couple of times

My rating: 4/5
