Hiiii my pretty ladies <3
Today I am going to rave about a shade which is my absolute favorite!!! It was a shade which had me hooked from the 1st day since I heard its name, 😀 * I am a sucker for tempting and foodie style names which of course you all know by now :D* and I have been meaning to pick this 1 up for ages but somehow it got pushed to the background with so many other delectable shades hogging the limelight *and eating up my money :’(* and it’s neither a very hyped or raved about shade so with the faith that it would not be OOS when I had enough money for it I kept it on my list, 🙂 but aaarrgghhh 😡 finally when I called up the store to confirm before going to pick it up I was informed frostily *on account of being disturbed by me quite more than usual :P* that it wasn’t there. :’( then I called up my friend aaand..to cut a long story short, she sent me my Syrup. 😀 oh hell that is the name of my favoriteeeee shade ^_^
What MAC Says:
MAC describes Syrup as *a cloudy pink* which comes in my favorite lustre finish. 🙂
Price: 990 INR for 3gm *permanent range*
My take on the product:
The lipstick comes in our familiar classy MAC packaging In black and silver with a tight cap which makes it travel friendly.
The pigmentation is great and is semi-sheer to opaque,built up in a couple of swipes. 🙂
The texture is light,smooth,soft, glossy and non-sticky, the best finish of the entire MAC lot…. my lustre finish. ^_^ It is so light on lips yet so hydrating that it feels like a lip balm and really is the easiest finish to wear, no settling into fine lines, no accentuating flaky areas, no need to exfoliate- bass it glides on and on, comforting like a lip balm and my lips drink it up and crave for more. 🙂
The color is a cool toned dusty pink which is certainly not a regular, easy to wear one and it probably will suck the life out from the faces of ladies with duskier complexions or very yellow undertones. 😐 On neutral or cooler skins though it is totally jhinga la la. 😉 I have rarely fallen for a pink this bad and it always provides the right amount of color and glossy finish to my lips whenever I apply.
The lasting power is not that great which is the typical characteristic of these lustre finishes. Hardly 3 hours and do not withstand food or drinks but I really don’t mind touching it up. 🙂
- Classic travel friendly MAC packaging. 🙂
- The texture is lovely- smooth, easy to apply, very light,hydrating and non-sticky. 🙂
- For a lustre finish, the pigmentation is great and it takes only a couple of swipes to get the color <3
- The color is 1 of my absolute favorites- a classy blue toned pink with a mauve hint which is definitely my go-to 🙂
- Does not dry out lips at all <3
- Does not emphasize fine lines or flaky areas 😀
- Yummy vanilla fragrance 😀
- Lasting power- though I don’t mind touching up, it can be an isuue with ladies who like long lasting lippies!
My rating: 5/5 😀 *cummon my con was for others!*
Do I recommend?
For ladies shying away from mauve based pinks, the upcoming autumn and winter is the perfect time to give these colors a go. 😉 When you have had finally enough of oranges and corals and start venturing a bit do give this a try. 😀 Particularly if you are fair-medium complexioned or with cool undertones. 😀 This lipstick is an underdog certainly but those who are in love with it ..well lets just say- dear MAC even if you stop selling lipsticks forever, keep a supply of Syrup and Mehr/Cosmo
for me ^_^ Ok. fine throw in a Russian Red
too 😉 and I am sorted 😛 *ok I am going before all you ladies come to skin me alive 😛 enjoy the swatches!*
The swatches- *in daylight*
My LOTD- *w/o flash w/o any balm or gloss*
Aww cummon stop fuming about my silly jokes and gimme a hug before I say goodbye for today 😀 mwwaahh
ETM Edit* This is an absolute delight Agni. 🙂 Perfect for the sophisticated look. A glossy version of Mehr and Pink Colar I would say . Lovely review. 🙂
