REVIEW: MAC CREMESHEEN LIPSTICK in RAVISHING

Hi everyone! 

When I left for New Zealand, I had a connecting flight in Hongkong and I had to wait there for 6 hours! So, what does a girl do in place where there were  lots of makeup stores that sell products at a cheaper price? Shop of course!! MAC was actually the stall where I spent more than an hour. I asked the lady there to put makeup on me...and I ended up boarding my plane looking oh-so-fab with a super red lipstick on! Hahaha... This lipstick caught my eye because I have been looking for a nude lipstick that would compliment my skin color and not wash me out. So, was I happy with this purchase? Read on!!

Product Name: MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in "Ravishing"
Bought from: MAC store in HK airport
Price: US $21 
(US $15 on the website)




 Ingredients:


It is a cremesheen lipstick so I know that it won't be matte. Personally, I prefer nude lipsticks to be a little shiny or glossy because it looks more natural and moisturizing. I have super dry lips so I don't use a lot of matte lipsticks.

Swatches:




It is a nude color that is more on the coral-peachy side. I am medium skin tones so I find that this lipstick does not wash me out and does not make me look like I lost a lot of blood. It just gives my lips a nice nude color.  It is opaque and I only have to swipe once or twice to get a good color pay-off. It is a little but dry though and if I don't moisturize or exfoliate my lips, the color tends to settle on on lines of my lips.I use this almost everyday and it looks great on smoky eyes and is good for everyday. It also lasts long, like I can wear this for 405 hours and it is still there. It does transfer though so the lasting power really depends on whether you eat, drink or kiss.. I also like putting this on top of my pink lipliner  or any lipliner to make it last a bit longer.


THOUGHTS:

What I like:
-good color pay off
- suits dark skin tones
- no pungent or strong smell
- lasts about 4-5 hours

Some issue:
-can be a little drying
- a little expensive (in my case.. hehe)


I would love to but more lippies from MAC. I love this lipstick and I definitely recommend this to medium to dark skin tones girls.  

So how about you? What is your favorite nude lipstick?

Hope you have a great day!
Take care!
