MAC Matte Lipstick Fashion Revival

Hello girls,

Yayyyy at last my first post on Wise she, and I especially thank Anamika for giving me this opportunity. It feels like I am on the ninth cloud!!! 🙂

It is really a coincidence that my first post on Wise she is my first ever berry kind of lipstick from MAC. Yes I am talking about MAC matte lipstick Fashion revival.

Price: – $16/ Rs.1450 INR

So winter is just knocking our door which indicates to pull out your most bold shades of makeup. And to be honest I am much into pinks, browns and corals kinds of lipsticks rather than any vampy red or berry red kind of shades.

Mac launched its Matte lip collection in 8 awesome shades

  • Styled in Sepia,
  • Pander Me,
  • Nouvelle Vogue,
  • Damn Glamorous,
  • La Vie En Rouge,
  • Fashion Revival,
  • Living Legend and
  • Heroine

This time when MAC launched these 8 shades, it just tempted me so much that I couldn’t stop myself from grabbing few. And yes among them my first ever buy of a true berry shade Fashion Revival (my first buy…my first buy…sounds repetitive but I am just nervous you see !). A shade that is perfect for fall/winter.

About MAC Matte Lip Collection:

The Matte Lip is here to stay. Create a standout look with the fashion-forward new shades of our iconic matte lipstick. Vibrant hues like fuchsia Velvet Violet and La Vie En Rouge are a bold contrast to the rich burgundy of Fashion Revival and nude of Styled in Sepia. For the best in colour intensity, Pro Longwear Lip Pencils in super-saturated shades to make a modern statement. Go for the cool rouge of Trust in Red or boost it up with new Bespoken For, a dark, creamy plum. For a polished finish, accent with the soft, pinky hues of Pro Longwear Blush – long-lasting colour that’s purely fabulous.

I am a die-hard matte lipstick lover and for last one year I was madly into MAC…And with passing time my choice of shades keeps changing…like this time.

My experience with MAC Matte Lipstick Fashion Revival :

Okay coming to the review on a serious note! Fashion Revival is described by MAC as a matte berry shade. The lipstick comes in the usual black case which is why even though it is a limited edition it is still priced as regular ones thankfully.

The matte range of MAC lipsticks is less matte compared to their retro matte collection. In short Mac matte lipsticks are creamy in texture that glide super smoothly on lips without any tugging or pulling of lips. The lipstick turns true matte within few minutes of application which is good during summer but during winter it is bit drying.

The MAC Matte Lipsticks are definitely not for people with extreme dry lips. Thus proper exfoliation and moisturisation of lips is suggested before applying the lipstick.

The lipstick is quite pigmented and it stays pretty 5-6 hours with slight fading if you are having meals in between.

The shade is a versatile shade. One can’t go wrong with this shade. It will suit from fair to dusky skin beauties in its own way.

And yes not to forgot the vanilla scent of the lipstick that drives me crazy to smell the lipstick before applying every time I open a MAC lipstick…silly me 😛

So finally summing up:-

What I like about Mac Matte Lipstick Fashion Revival :

  • Regular packaging so priced as regular line of lipsticks of MAC.
  • Matte but not so drying like retro ones.
  • Settles to matte withinin few hours of application.
  • Stays pretty for 5-6 hours on my lips with slight bit of fading after meals.
  • Perfect shade for fall/winter.
  • Versatile shade, will suit everyone in its own way.
  • Vanilla scent.

What I dont like about Mac Matte Lipstick Fashion Revival :

  • As it is limited edition it is already out of stock in many stores.
  • Pricey, pricey , pricey….and the way MAC is raising its price, in future it is surely going to loose few trusted customers (me L) as it just burns your pocket !!!


My recommendation: – Well, it is my first ever buy of berry kind of shade and I am totally loving it. Never thought it will turn out so good. So if your nearest MAC store still has it then without giving a second thought just grab it…trust me you will love it 🙂
