MAC Brave Lipstick Review, Swatch, FOTD

mac brave lipstick

MAC brave lipstick is a stain finish lipstick. MAC describes the shade as Pink-beige with white pearl (Satin).

Price : Rs 990

It is another cool toned nude pink beige shade. This is the first time I have used satin finish lipstick from MAC . The satin finish lipstick are super opaque but quite drying. BUT they are nicely long staying and they do accentuate my fine lines after almost 2 hours of wear. Brave stays on me for good 4-5 hours and definitely survives through the meals. Also, I find brave is way too nude for my NC 35 complexion. It looks different on me in different lights- sometimes pale pink, sometimes nude beige and sometimes nude pink. Actually both Brave and Angel remind me of Kim Kardashian. πŸ˜› She likes to wear such pale shades.

With I have worn brave a couple of times in past week and every time I have either kept my blush or eyes on the heavy makeup wise.Otherwise I feel it drains out color from my face. Β  I see it working a lot for fair skin tones. It could be a nice MLBB color for medium to fair skin tone colors.

I like Brave for its opacity and staying power but this is not “oh-my-precious” color. πŸ˜€

Brave is quite similar to cosmo, but cosmo is brighter than this so works more than this one for me.

With slight light variation, Brave looks quite pale. πŸ™‚ But just check how “wow” opaque this looks. πŸ™‚

awesome! i have read so much about brave on the internet…but the overall effect of the lipstick varies depending upon the complexion, so i think it’s best to try out the shades at the store first since mac is so expensive…i’ll definitely give this one a shot.. :inlove: :inlove:

Hey Rati, This is good, but I still can’t get over the way NYX soft matte lip cream Addis Ababa looked on you…that was the bestest, though all colors look good on you, but that one was :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
