MAC Satin Lipstick in Captive Review, Swatch & LOTD-
I’m back with another review, this time it’s lipstick from the MAC’s satin lipstick line. This one was a gift from my mum and I absolutely agree that she knows me pretty well! 😉 Okay guys, stories apart i’m here with the shade Captive and lets get on to the review…
What MAC Says-
SATIN (S): Color-rich. Soft satin, semi-matte finish. Conditions while adding intense color.
MAC describes “Captive” as a cool plum with a satin finish.
Price: 1500/- INR for 3gm
My take on the MAC Satin Lipstick in Captive-
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a regular black bullet with beautiful black letters MAC on the silver inside.
Shade: MAC Captive has a satin finish. I classify it as a gorgeous pinkish plum shade which suits all skin tones pretty well. This can make a great everyday shade and isn’t super bold for me.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture is creamy and simply glides on at ease. The formula feels really nice on the lips and gives a semi-matte finish and also doesn’t dry out the lips nor makes those fine lines on the lips prominent. The formula is highly pigmented and can cover up the lips in good 1-2 swipes.
Longevity: Lasts for 5 hours with light eating and drinking and leaves a really pretty pinkish stain behind while it fades off.
A bonus: The MAC Satin Lipstick- Captive is also eligible for the Back to MAC program.
Pros of the MAC Satin Lipstick in Captive:
- Texture is creamy and smooth
- Suits Indian skin tone
- Doesn’t dry out lips
- Doesn’t settle in fine lines
- Lipstick is pigmented
Cons of the MAC Satin Lipstick in Captive:
- Transfers easily ( pretty much every other lipstick does)
- Expensive (Yeah! It’s MAC definitely not one of those budget lipsticks)
There’s really nothing much apart from the above two that i can complain on about this lipstick.
