MAC Film Noir Lipstick Review & Swatches


MAC Film Noir Lipstick


It’s all about vampy lip shades around this time of year and one of the best selling shades of all time is “CHANEL ROUGE COCO” Rouge Noir lipstick. But , as the colour is too dark and vampy I settled for a dupe which is half the price but at the same time is very close to that and the shade I am raving about is MAC FILM NOIR  and one more affordable dupe which I tried is REVLON Black Cherry which I shared few days back.

My take on MAC Film Noir Lipstick:-


Shade – MAC FILM NOIR Lipstick is described as Intense Brown and true to its description it is deep dark warm toned reddish brown shade which is gorgeously pigmented but does need a layer or two to get even finish plus well exfoliated lips for flawless application. It looks almost black on my lips from my husband’s point of view but I feel it is dark brown than BLACK.

Although I have not planned but I do want to show you full FOTD with this. If I gather some courage you may see it in coming days.

Texture – As it comes from SATIN finish range, it is very opaque in single layer and manages to stay for 4 – 5 hrs. I do find that  good exfoliation is required to get even finish on lips; it is not at all forgiving on chapped lips.

Packaging – The standard MAC black bullet and the same vanilla fragrance which keeps us addicted to buy these.

Recommendation – I would never re-purchase this shade as it is not likely to finish at any point of time. So far it is here and I am enjoying it and will keep on recommending it if you are a little experimental like me .

What I like about MAC Film Noir Lipstick:

  • The shade is Gorgeous and daring but so apt for fall plus it is universally flattering but does need a lot of courage.
  • I love Satin finish, very soft and easy to layer plus it is well pigmented.
  • The classic vanilla scent of MAC lipsticks which keeps me hooked to these.
  • The ease of wearing this as a stain and full power packed lips or stain with gloss, it is gorgeous in all the avatars.

What I don’t like about MAC Film Noir Lipstick:

  • As the colour is very dark it can appear little patchy at times and I highly recommend good exfoliation plus a lip liner to prevent it from bleeding.

Ratings – 4/5

The colour is very daring and is hard to carry, if you are looking for a vampy shade then this is right up your alley. Instead of spending 2 K on CHANEL, I would pick this and use it and be happy. Anything “NOIR” and my eyes roll big…. love the shades inspired by night and always keep on looking for that. I was looking for a cheaper dupe of CHANEL like I said above and then settled for this one , they are not exactly the same nor are close enough but still this is enough vampy to sport this season without fail .
