I always used to see MAC store from a distance but never had the courage to enter it. But one fine day, I just had to enter the store. And I was so mesmerised by their collection! I bought a Studio Fix plus foundation, Studio Moisture Cover concealer, a lipgloss, a lippy and Prep and prime.
My MAC Taupe Lipstick Journey 🙂
This is my first and only one lipstick from MAC. I had no idea about how many types they have in lippies and blah blah blah, I just told the MUA(who was a sweet person and didnâ€™t let me feel awkward which I had expected) that I have a budget of 6k for my MAC Makeup, please suggest me some basic MAC products. He asked meÂ to try out the base, which I loved instantly. I also wanted to own a MAC lippy, which can be worn for office. That was my idea of paisa-wasool ;). He gave me this Matte lippy, I got it as if I was receiving a free gift. Later I realised I had got a matte one which I never wear.
But then I decided to try this out for office and got quite a few compliments, I was always under the impression that matte shades make u look older and what not. But when I received lovely compliments for my lippies, I fell in love with my MAC lipstick! I have been following blogs lately but never got to see this name L, but does that matter? I like this lipstick a lot and it has made me like matte lipsticks a lot.
Swatches of MAC Taupe Lipstick:-
I always hear that beauties complain that matte lipsticks are very drying but I did not have such experience with this, although my lips hate any product which is even a bit drying. I donâ€™t need to say much coz I always think lipsticks are generally good by all companies and this one is MAC so its too good :).
MAC Taupe Lipstick Swatches:-
Coming to the colour, its like a not too brown shade.
I suck at explaining so will show you swatches. Itâ€™s a nice shade but it will wash you out if you are dusky. For my NC 42 skin tone, it looks great and itâ€™ll suit even better to wheatish complexion beauties.
Well, I wouldnâ€™t say itâ€™s a must buy shade, you can live without it. And I wonâ€™t be repurchasing it again.
Â What I like about MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick:-
- Doesnâ€™t dry out the lips
- Good number of shades to choose from
- It’s MAC!
- Colour suits me well
- Nice fragrance
- Sturdy packaging
What I do not like about MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick:-
- Not a great shade which would suit everyone
Although the second con is bullshit coz we never buy lippies which would suit everyone! We buy the ones which suit us, but I had to write something! Hope this review helped 🙂
