Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review MAC La Vie En Rouge lipstick. Finally the matte collection is launched in India!!! For all the MAC fans, this is a collection not to be missed. I am sure everyone will find at least one suitable shade. MAC La Vie En Rouge lipstick is the third lipstick that I bought from the collection. Coral is a little tricky shade. It can either wash you out or be too bright for the eyes.
However, a coral color done well is a dream come true. Read further to know my experience with this particular shade of coral. 🙂
About MAC Matte Lipstick:
MAC La Vie En Rouge is a part of the newly launched MAC The Matte Lip Collection. It is a limited edition lipstick. MAC describes its lipsticks as:
‘Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made MÂ·AÂ·C famous. ‘
Price : $16.
My take on MAC La Vie En Rouge Lipstick:
After MAC Damn Glamorous and MAC Nouvelle Vogue, MAC La Vie En Rouge is another pretty lipstick from this collection. It is described as ‘bright orange coral’ by MAC. It is actually a bright reddish coral. This color can look more pink on pigmented lips as coral cancels the pigmentation and only pink stands out. This is one shade that will look different on different people and in different lights.
But that is always the case with coral shades. Isn’t it?
MAC La Vie En Rouge is a shade that can be worn alone as well as with an eye makeup. I love that this shade can brighten up the face without any other makeup. Usually corals are associated with summer and spring seasons, but this shade will look good even in fall and winters because of its warm undertones. So pick it up if you have wanted a warm deep shade for coming winters. 🙂
Texture: MAC La Vie En Rouge has a smooth and creamy texture. It has a subtle sheen for an hour or so after application, but ultimately becomes matte. Goes on evenly and feels comfortable on the lips. May look a little dry after sometime.
Pigmentation: Opaque and intense color in one swipe.
Staying Power: Very long lasting. Stays on me for 7-8 hours and survives meal as well.
Packaging: Typical MAC packaging. No special packaging. 🙁
What I love about MAC La Vie En Rouge Lipstick:
- Ravishing coral color.
- Brightens up the face.
- Matte finish.
- Creamy texture.
- Intense pigmentation.
- Smooth and even application.
- Very long lasting.
- Feels comfortable on the lips.
What I do not love about MAC La Vie En Rouge Lipstick:
- No special packaging.
- Little drying on the lips after some time.
- May look more pink than coral on pigmented lips.
Final Impression: MAC La Vie En Rouge is a brilliant coral shade. I was always a bit unsatisfied with other corals I have. However, this shade has made me super happy. A perfect, gorgeous matte coral shade with very smooth texture. Not to be missed if you have been wanting to try deeper corals. However, will suggest to try it out before buying as it may look different on different people. Definitely Recommended!!
