MAC SATIN LIPSTICK SPIRIT - REVIEW, SWATCH AND LOTD

MAC SATIN LIPSTICK IN SPIRIT

I happened to chance upon this gorgeous lipstick during one of my perfect-nude lipstick hunt. I tried many lipsticks falling into the nude/neutral category but none gave me the happiness which this lipstick gave. With this note, let me move on to the review.

 REVIEW

The finish of this lipstick is my all-time favorite – satin. They are pigmented, smooth and impart semi-matte finish perfect for every day wear.

This lipstick comes in standard MAC packing and MAC describes the color as Muted pinky-beige brown. 

On me, it is the perfect nude leaning more towards muted pink and a gorgeous MLBB shade. It covers the pigmentation's on my lips well and looks polished.

One swipe is sufficient to impart color. But I personally like to go over one more time on the outer corners to get perfectly concealed lips.

It easily stays put for 5 hours on my lips and starts to fade slightly beyond that time. Though it survives mild snacking during the 5 hr period, due to the color and finish, it does not survive a full blown meal.

Using a lip liner underneath improves its longevity by an hour or so. But again, it does not provide any resistance to survive a full meal. It did not feel very drying like the retro matte ones but using a lip balm is advised as always. 

It transfers like almost all the satin finish lipsticks and does not bleed. As it looks perfect on my NC40 skin, I feel it may wash out darker skin tones and may look deeper on fairer skin tones.

Indian beauty Maniac’s Rating
4/5

Though it belongs to the nude/neutral category, it is not a boring color. It looks classy and I am using this lipstick almost every day now. If this lipstick gets over, i will look for such shades in Chanel, EL or other high-end brands and only if i don't find any, i will repurchase this.

Dupe Alert: Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in tea break happens to be a similar shade. I have it but I did not like its finish.
