MAC Double Shot lipstick swatch & review

Recently MAC put out a collection of four lipsticks called 'Middle Eastern'. These shades have been added to the permanent range. Two of these are Yash and Mehr from the Mickey Contractor collection. The other two, Double Shot and Tabla, are new. I got Double Shot, albeit with some apprehension.

 MAC describes Double Shot as full bodied Mocha cream. It looked too dark ( my likes) that I crinkled my nose the moment I twisted the stick up. But a single stroke of the color on my lips made me change my mind. On my lips, it comes out as a very soft brown with a mauve undertones. It is a flattering shade and would suit almost all skintones.

 Double Shot is part of the amplified finish family. It is super creamy and quite pigmented, going opaque in a single swipe. The finished look has a nice sheen to it, which makes me refrain from the use of a lipgloss over this lipstick. It doesn't settle into fine lines and lasted on me for around 3 hours with a full meal. It is also very moisturizing. The typical MAC vanilla scent and the trademark matte black case housing the lipstick still don't cease to please me :D


Price: Rs. 990
