MAC Crosswires Lipstick Review, Swatch, FOTD

Price : Rs 900

mac crosswires lipstick

Crosswires is creemsheen finish lipstick. MAC describes the color as clean pinky orange.

I have had love and hate relationship with Crosswires.When I bought it I loved it, then I hated it, then loved it again . Guess I’d settle down to “I like it” . πŸ˜€ I bought it almost one and a half month back and it’s now that I have finally I have started using it regularly. Hence, the review. πŸ™‚

Coesswires is a coral pink lipstick. It is a creamy finish lipstick. Does not have shimmer.

Likes and Dislikes :

  • I like the color. I am not too comfortable wearing brighter pinks and oranges. Crosswires totally fits between a deep pink and a coral. It a beautiful color both for summers and winters and the kinds that totally brightens up the face. However , for me this si not an everyday shade . I enjoy wearing itΒ occasionally.
  • The finish is creamy. It does not lookΒ completelyΒ matte but has a soft creamy finish to it. So it kinda caters to a lot of different tastes of women.
  • The saying power on me is around 3- 3/12 hours,which I like.
  • It does not feel drying on lips but on dry lips day I see it settling in the fine lines of lips. Also, I noticed that if you apply 2-3 layers of the lipstick, it settles very deep in the fine lines.
  • It is a very pigmented lip color.
  • Has a lovely vanilla fragrance of MAC lipsticks.
  • A nice color for most Indian skin tones.

Swatch: left 3 swipes, right one swipe.

Overall, I am enjoying wearing Crosswires more than ever . I personally like wearing just one coat of it. With 2-3 swipes it starts looking neonish and I find it difficult to pull off.

If you like corals, do give crosswires a try. It isΒ definitelyΒ a pretty one in MAC’s huge collection of lipsticks. πŸ™‚
