MAC Spirit review & swatch

Today's post is a tribute to my 1st ever MAC lipstick called 'Spirit' :D I love it to the T. If I ever have to pick just 1 MAC lipstick for life, its going to be this :D

Coming in the trademark matte black bullet shaped case, MAC Spirit is a muted pinky beige brown and a member of the Satin family and thankfully from the permanent range. Satin textured lipsticks from MAC are said to be the best among the various textures.

Skin swatch

They are highly pigmented and long lasting. Spirit lives upto the properties of its family, going opaque in a single swipe even on my slightly pigmented lips. Lasting power is wonderful, almost 4 hours with slight color after a good meal. There are a few downs too. Accentuation of fine lines and dead skin were the main problems I faced when I first used Spirit, but this was taken care of by the MAC Lip Prep+Prime. It also feels slightly dry on my lips.

Without Prep+Prime

It is also quite flat looking on its own so I use a beige nude lipgloss from B & D Professional range in # 30, only on the cupid's bow. Pssst...this gloss is a bang on dupe of MAC Lust lipglass :p

With lipgloss

This is the perfect nude for my NC 41 skin tone and goes amazingly well with heavy smokey eyes and almost every type of outfits. Lovelies with darker skin tones, this may wash you out !!


The Happies:

Awesome pigmentation
Great lasting power

The Saddies:

Accentuates fine lines.
Not suitable for darker skintones.

Price: Rs.990

Rating : 5/5 happi :)
