Nykaa has recently launched so many high-end brands on their website . They now have MAC, ESTEE LAUDER,CLINIQUE,BOBBI BROWN to name a few. It has really made all of the makeup lovers so happy because now they can shop whatever they want with just a click on their mouse ! Talking of MAC Cosmetics, they have added 12 new shades in their retro matte liquid lipstick range in December 2016. Most of the shades are earthy-nudes , only one deep-red and one blue-based color. I also took this advantage of Nykaa Luxe and ordered one new shade of MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick for me. The shade name is also very unique and witty. It’s called MAC Topped With Brandy.
About The Product
For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, MAC introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor.
Price : Rs. 1850/-
Net Weight : 5 ml.
The packaging is quite simple with a clear glass tube with a matte black cap. MAC has kept their tradition intact keeping the outer packaging and the cap unchanged. you can find the shade name and all the other details on the outer black cardboard box. It is quite easy to recognize the shades from outside which really makes me happy. The doe-foot applicator is quite nice in quality and picks up the right amount of product in one go.
Topped with Brandy is a medium-deep mauve color with a hint of grey undertones to it. The formulation is quite smooth and it applies evenly on your lips. It then dries down to a complete matte finish after 5-7 minutes. I have noticed that the color gets a little darker after it dried down. The longevity is quite good . You are good to go for 5-6 hours with this liquid lipstick on. It will not budge unless you have some oily or greasy food.
I found out MAC Topped with Brandy to be a quite unique color. I don’t have any color like this in my vanity. It will suit most of the skin tones except some dusky beauties. It tends to dry out my lips after 4 hours of application which is quite normal for any liquid lipstick.You need to exfoliate your lips well and dab a little lip-balm before the application.It is completely transfer-proof and water-resistant. I had to apply an oil-based makeup remover to get rid of it.
Good Things About It
- Opaque in one swipe
- lots of browns and nude shades in the range
Not So Good Things
- Little bit drying after 4 hours of application
If you are a MAC lover, I am pretty sure you will grab at least one nudes from this new range of colors.I am, currently loving, wearing this shade with a white top and blue jeans combination. You can rock this shade with any other pastel-colored outfits. Give it a try !
