MAC Matte Lipstick Chili Review

MAC Matte Lipstick Chili Review

This post is supposed to go live yesterday but screw my internet and crazy rains in Mumbai. While I was a kid, I liked loved rains but as I grew up I started noticing that my work/schedule used to get delayed because of the rains. Well now I don’t really hate rains but I will only like them when I plan to stay at home all day which usually never happen.

I never knew much about MAC Cosmetics until, I started moving places and almost every other mall I visited has a MAC store. Then I did my R&D which impressed me enough to make me invest in their products. I’ve bought their foundation which totally bowled me over. Now I use my base makeup from MAC. Then their lipsticks lured me. I was at first why invest so much money on these tiny beauties but I just gave in my temptation and bought this(just to try and test. Also to know why it is so coveted )
Introducing CHILI – yes! I am a matte lipstick addict. Hence proved. S.S rajamouli next movie

A lipstick with hundreds of hues.Formulated to shade, define and showcase the lips. Hundreds of hues, high-fashion textures. The iconic product that made M·A·C famous.

MAC-Retro-Matte-Lipstick-Chili-ReviewPRICE & QUANTITY:

MAC-Retro-Matte-Lipstick-Chili-Review-SwatchMY TAKE :
The lipstick comes in a plastic black shimmery package with a silver bullet. The shade name is written on the bottom of the package. The package is classy enough to make it stand out in your entire lipstick collection. But you have a catch here. If you own more of these, I am sure you can’t pick your shade at one go because all of these look the same except the Limited Edition ones which mostly have an unique packaging.
Coming to the shade, MAC Chili is an orangey red shade which falls more towards red. You can call it a burnt red with orange undertones. This is one shade which will compliment all the skintones and Indian skin is just too perfect for this lipstick to match with. I am a dusky beauty and this shade totally make me feel that this is made for me. MAC Chili has a mild vanilla scent to it and is not overpowering. This doesn’t settle in the fine lines of the lips but exfoliating your lips before applying the lipstick is mandatory. Since MAC Chili is a matte lipstick, the lipstick is very much pigmented and one swipe can cover up any pigmentation on lips. The finish is matte and girls with very dry lips must apply a lip balm underneath. The staying power is great too. It stays on for 6 hours and survives meals/drinks. The best part is it doesn’t stain glasses/coffee mugs. It instantly brightens up the face so you can go for a very simple eye makeup or just the kohl eyes to match the lip color.
SWATCHES:   Mac-Matte-Lipstick-Chili-Review-SwatchesPROS:
1. Super nice red-orange to rock.
2. Suits the medium/dusky/wheatish skintone the most.
3. Mild vanilla scent.
4. Amazing pigmentation.
5. Stays on REAL long.
I was happy with the 990 INR price tag but now that it became 1190 :/
