If you have been reading my posts, you all know how much I love to review lipsticks. So here I am with yet another lipstick post to share swatches and much more.
I am eagerly waiting to say “bye-bye Covid-19 & its non-stop variants”. I mean seriously, girls like us who are desperate to flaunt newly painted lips, have to hide joy under the mask with a heavy heart. But, what I have learned these days, inner happiness is the best remedy for all worries. So no worries. And I give a big smile and cheer up myself.
Now let’s continue and dive into it.
MAC describes it as an “Intense orange-brown (Matte)”. It is a matte lipstick that has no shine (not ultra-matte). The shade shown in the swatches might not be the same as it looks in real. I tried to capture the real color of the bullet but daylight did not let me do that. However, hope you will get an idea from lips and hand swatches.
So “MAC Marrakesh” is a pretty matte shade and opaque, and one swipe delivers a punch of color with a smooth application. I prefer to use a straight lipstick bullet for application instead of using a brush and that saves my ton of time.
This lipstick has an excellent color payoff. Having pigmented lips like mine, MAC Marrakesh is the very right choice for us. You can wear it anytime, this gorgeous color will always balance your look beautifully.
Even though it’s a matte lipstick, it is a non-drying formula. Being said that, the formula is neutral. Neither drying nor hydrating. Therefore, I will recommend softening lips with Lip balm or anything of your choice before applying the lipstick. If wearing throughout the day, a touch-up might be needed.
Mac Cosmetics always comes up with innovative lipstick formulas and this one is definitely the lipstick that can never go out of fashion.
Last but not least, special message to my Indian friends. This would be the most beautiful lipstick in your vanity and I am sure you would grab it more frequently before leaving the house.
MAC Marrakesh lipstick’s retail price is $19 (USD) 3G / 0.1 US OZ.
