Mac- I hate

Posted by Buls on 12:54 PM in , ,
Bloggers in India (and not Indian bloggers) are in awe of Mac. I think its a decent brand... has more hits than misses... BUT it does have misses and the customer service sucks (more on that in some other post).

My general strategy is to go to Inglot, look for what I want, incase they do not have something I go to Mac. Nowadays, I only purchase from Mac when they have new launches. New launches is something that Inglot needs to do more often. But, Inglot is a better and cheaper brand.

Few months back I was looking for a maroon lipstick... the kind I have seen celebrities sport. They look very classy with an all black dress.

I could not find it in Inglot and headed to Mac. The BA pushed me to buy Sheen Supreme Good to be bad. I couldn't find it in the store recently so maybe it was limited edition or something.

It has a glossy black packaging, very different from the regular one. MRP: Rs 1400

Below are the pics:

It looks brown in the tube but is maroon in the swatch.

The top is uneven 'coz the lipstick hit the cap.

Maroon with a base of pink

It is extremely moisturizing and was melting during the summer in my drawer. It applies very unevenly. Thankfully, does not stain the teeth. Being so moisturizing, it barely lasts and does not look that great. Also, it needs to be applied with a lip brush. There is no way you can use the tube on your lips directly.

Hate... hate... hate... hate so much that I bought the same shade in pro longwear. When dark lipsticks apply unevenly it looks very bad and noticeable. A dark lipcolor needs to last long and look good.

Will never buy again.
