MAC So Chaud Lipstick Review & Swatches


MAC So Chaud Lipstick

How many of us actually stray away from the routine nudes and neutrals when it comes to lipstick? We always prefer to play it safe with plummy browns and pinks. “Oh and orange, what orange, lipstick? Maybe red but not orange, okay coral maybe that’s it”. I am not saying we don’t experiment but I do feel we are in the minority here. Orange shade, I feel is a very flattering one especially on Indian skin tones. Every makeup lover should at least give the shade a chance to explain. Now I am rambling, I know. Let’s get into the topic of the day, MAC So Chaud Lipstick.

My experience with MAC So Chaud Lipstick:-

The shade: So Chaud in literal term means ‘So Hot’. Yes, very apt for the lipstick I say. MAC describes the shade as intense reddish orange and I agree whole heartedly. It is not exactly a pure orange but nevertheless a very brave shade at that. It looks quite flattering on a range of skin tones from light to dusky. But medium to duskier skin tones rock the shade.

  • Pigmentation: So Chaud is a matte finish lipstick from MAC. High on pigmentation yet creamy and very forgiving on lips! A single swipe is all you need to get opaque coverage. It covers lip pigmentation well, deposits evenly without any tugging or pulling.

  • Texture: I love MAC’s matte range. They are creamy, pigmented and non-drying all at the same time. Exfoliated and prepped lips form a better base and actually let the lipstick perform a world apart. It does not settle into fine lines nor bleed. The lipstick sets on application and it does not transfer.

  • Fragrance & staying power: The lipstick carries the signature Vanilla fragrance attributed to most MAC lipsticks. It is mild and should not be a cause of worry for even those sensitive to fragrance. The lipstick stays put on me without much fading for nearly 6-7 hours.
