MAC Lustre Lipstick “Syrup” : Swatch, Review And LOTD

MAC Lustre Lipstick Syrup

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, πŸ˜€ * 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, πŸ™‚Β 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 cut a long story short, she sent me my Syrup. πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ™‚
Price: 990 INR for 3gm *permanent range*

My take on the product:
The lipstick comes in our familiar classy MACΒ 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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ™‚

The Pros:
  • Classic travel friendly MAC packaging. πŸ™‚
  • The texture is lovely- smooth, easy to apply, very light,hydrating and non-sticky. πŸ™‚
  • 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 πŸ™‚
  • Does not dry out lips at all <3
  • Does not emphasize fine lines or flaky areas πŸ˜€
  • Yummy vanilla fragrance πŸ˜€
The Cons:
  • 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 πŸ˜€ *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. πŸ˜‰ When you have had finally enough of oranges and corals and start venturing a bit do give this a try. πŸ˜€ Particularly if you are fair-medium complexioned or with cool undertones. πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜‰ and I am sorted πŸ˜› *ok I am going before all you ladies come to skin me alive πŸ˜› enjoy the swatches!*
The swatches- *in daylight*

My LOTD- *w/o flash w/o any balm or gloss*


*w/ flash*


Aww cummon stop fuming about my silly jokes and gimme a hug before I say goodbye for today πŸ˜€ mwwaahh

ETM Edit* This is an absolute delight Agni. πŸ™‚ Perfect for the sophisticated look. A glossy version of Mehr and Pink Colar I would say . Lovely review. πŸ™‚
