MAC lipstick Shanghai Spice swatch & review

The other day when I was talking to Kiran of mycherrylane, I told her I bought MAC Shanghai Spice and she was pretty surprised. Said the name sounded like it would be a bold hot color, perhaps red and I laughed out loud. How misleading the names can be and in case of MAC Shanghai spice from the new Cremesheen + Pearl Collection, the description by MAC is misleading too.

MAC Shanghai Spice is a frosted neutral pink or so the brand says. On me, it is a beautiful shiny, pale peach, leaning a bit towards pink.

The texture is cremesheen and not frost. All the lipsticks and lipglosses from this collection have some fine shimmer, giving it the frosty look. The shimmer content is not high hence not too obvious. Just enough to give the lips a fine shine :)

Cremesheens are moisturising on the lips and last for about 3 hours. The shimmer from the lipstick doesn't settle into fine lines or travel all over the face. The packing is not different from the normal range lipsticks and the trademark vanilla frag remains.

Price: Rs. 990/ 3 gm
