MAC Satin Lipstick “Faux” Review, Swatch & LOTD

Hello my lovelies 😀

Ok ok so I know its high time we all really stopped lusting after and buying MAC stuff especially as they are increasing their prices madly in a gap of a couple of months. 😡 It seems like forever ago that it was 990/-! *sigh* but due to something special *more on that later ;)* my mom herself suggested to pick up and stock some, AC stuff before they rocketed their prices further. 🙁 *I almost died in happiness after her suggestion* and long story short, we looted MAC. I was after this shade for a long time and finalllyyy pounced on it. <3

My Take on MAC Satin Lipstick Faux

The packaging is the all too familiar matte black and silver tube with a click-cap of MAC which is sleek and convenient. 🙂

The lipstick is of the *satin* family which is one of the finishes I like as it has awesome color pay-off yet is not the drying matte which feels stretchy without a balm in winter. 🙂 It is smooth, applies easily and evenly on lips and has a polished classic finish on lips- neither glossy nor matte. 🙂

The shade *faux* is one of my lusted-after shades as a S.A had created an awesome pinky nude lip combo on me using this and Soar lip pencil. 😀 It is a pale nude pink which leans a bit towards mauve *think of MAC Syrup without its glossy finish.*  As it makes some people look sick do try it on over a warmer base on lips before either buying or rejecting it. 😛 I personally love these sort of shades 😀

The pigmentation of MAC Faux is top-notch and a swipe is all you need to get adequate color. It does not highlight my lip flaws or fine lines and has an awesome lasting power of 4-5 hours even with light food/drinks! It fades away nicely without drying out my lips. 🙂 It has the yummy characteristic MAC vanilla fragrance of course!

Pros of MAC Satin Lipstick Faux:

  • Typical classic MAC sleek tube packaging in matte black-silver.
  • Lovely satin finish- awesome color payoff yet not drying on lips like a matte lippie.
  • The shade faux is the perfect pinky natural nude for me specially worn over a nude lip pencil; a bit tricky shade to pull off though!
  • Great pigmentation- single swipe needed!
  • Did not accentuate my lip flaws or dry them out. 🙂
  • Lasts easily for 4-5 hrs even with light food/drinks!
  • Yummy vanilla flavored <3 <3

Cons of MAC Satin Lipstick Faux:

  • None for me except the escalating price. 🙁

My Rating– 5/5!

Do I recommend?

I have been after MAC Satin Lipstick Faux from the time when MAC retailed for 990/-INR 😀 it was always OOS! Now I have it finally and love it for creating a perfect pinky natural lip color any time of the day. *yes I am still in my hating brights mode :P* This pink is a bit mauvey though so you definitely need to try it out under different lights before your bring this baby home. 🙂

That’s all for now! And yes it was big MAC haul so lots more to come. 😀 loads of love! Keep smiling. 🙂
