MAC Lustre Lipstick in Touch - Review, Swatch

Hello Friends,

I am starting off a fresh week with the review of my recently acquired MAC Lustre Lipstick in Touch.

I wanted a beautiful lipstick for everyday use and upon my friend Shweta's suggestion I went to the store and swatched it. It was love at first sight. Though I swatched couple of other shades, I just can’t this one out of my mind.

Mac describes touch as "Peachy Cinnamon". It is a soft pale brown and trust me if you are around NC 42 or lighter, you must get this shade. It looks very sophisticated. I wear it daily and it has become my HG lipstick for work.

It has the standard classy mac packing and the back to mac policy applies to this lipstick.

It is very creamy and glides on well. It gives a nice sheen and in two swipes the lipstick is opaque enough to cover any sort of pigmentation. It does not emphasize the fine lines and is dry lips friendly. However in order to look best, it is better to make sure the lips are scrubbed and dead skin eliminated.


In Sunlight:

The lipstick stays only for about 3 hours and vanishes. It is not transfer resistant. It survives light snacks. The lipstick does not bleed or make you ugly in any way.

On my lips:

Price is Rs.990/-


1.    Beautiful and sophisticated color.
2.    Lustre Finish gives a freshly applied look.
3.    Dry lips friendly.
4.    MAC’s Vanilla fragrance.
5.    Does not taste bad. (I accidentally licked it once)
6.    Back 2 Mac scheme applies. You won’t regret saving the empty bullet.  


1.    Not Transfer resistant.
2.    Short staying power.

Maniac’s Rating: 4/5.

Verdict: It is definitely one of those lipsticks which can be bought and worn with eyes closed.

Highly recommended.

Hope you girls found my review useful.
