MAC Jubilee Lipstick Review

MAC Jubilee Lipstick Review

Okay, somebody please tell me why I can’t stop listening to the Desi Boyz song, ‘Tu Mera Hero…a–a–a…hero…ha…hero…tu mera hero – a-a-a.” I am in love with this song since the movie came out and break into a jig every time I hear this! :jiggy1: I think I have found my soul song – if there is any such thing. 😆

MAC Jubilee Lipstick Review

Okay, random shot time now, of my two favourite Macs!

Anyway, a little off-track rambling.  I watched Agent Vinod and wanted to walk out of the theater after the first 30 minutes, which is quite something for a person who sat through electric chairs like Mausam, Rascals, and Dhamaal! Kareena Kapoor is looking fat, errrm sorry – “well fed!” I liked her zero figure avatar quite a lot although everyone said she was looking sick and what not. Anyhow, on to the review.  Oh and by the way, I also watched London, Paris, New York and methinks Ali Zafar is scorching! Drool drool drool! :drool:

Okay, seriously now, on to the review! :headbang:

Price:

Rs. 990.

Lustre finish

Finish:

Lustre.

About MAC Jubilee:

It’s a n*de beigy pink – very subtle and totally “my kinda shade.” The shade is quite pale and being in lustre finish, just imparts a nice beigy pink shine to the lips. It is very very moisturizing and hydrating and on days when I don’t feel like wearing a proper tint, I just use this and it serves the purpose of a lip balm – it is THAT moisturizing!

Jubilee

The texture is ultra creamy (I love their lustre finishes), but staying power is around 5-6 hours if I don’t eat anything. I also have a habit of licking my lips – so I eat most of my lipsticks 😛  (Gawd, still thinking of Ali Zafar in that movie :pray: )

The fragrance is the usual MAC fragrance that all their lipsticks have which bothers me just a little bit, but a MAC is a MAC is a MAC after all!

Shade:

Like I mentioned, it’s a very pale beigy pink – so it would suit fair to medium skin tones. I use it mostly to tone down very bright lipsticks or when I don’t want to wear a proper tint on my lips, but just want a nice moisturizing lipstick that would impart some shine. It looks superb with a heavy smoky eye as well, so I would say it’s suitable for day as well as night. I just wear it any time and you can tell how much I use it by looking at this pic:

Quick swatches of the shade on my wrist and my lips:

On my wrist:

Swatch

On my lips:

LS

Summing it up, this totally works for me because I usually wear a lot of smudged kohl and prefer to keep my lips pale. If that’s your scene as well, you can go for this lipstick, but don’t, if you like bright peppy colors for summer!

Let me know if you love or hate the shade and your thoughts on the post!

very cute all that stuff abt Desi boyz and Ali zafar. I love that song from Desi boyz too and so danceable..I remember going all tapori style on that Apna sapna money money song ‘dil mein baji guitar’ 🙂 and Ali Zafar i remember him in meri brother ki dulhan and I thought he was damn cute..:). have to this London movie now. its one of those movies where you think u shud see it when u see the promos and once those promos are gone you promptly forget abt it..

ya so coming to the review on hand – its a very pretty shade and loving all the reviews from MAC 🙂 there are just too many nice things to buy out there..

i knoww… :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: btw i was quite surprised to see kareena put on weight. she has been promoting her dietician’s books. who is going to believe her now. 😛

Reply

Aarbee April 2, 2012 at 10:36 pm

She is preparing to be the Rani of Gwalior now, so has to look the part I guess :preen:
But I think she is on the bulkier side and can’t control her diet, that’s why her weight keeps fluctuating!

Ravali April 2, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Well I go with a lot of smudged kohl and prefer a nude lipstick…so this one’s for me!! yaayyyyy! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Sukanya April 2, 2012 at 7:22 pm

in the lipswatch the color looks more of a pink with brown undertones ..I like it more that way than the pink in hand swatch :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

Reply

Aarbee April 2, 2012 at 7:38 pm

yeah it comes out a little paler on my lips than the wrist swatch…but I think it would look good on your skin tone either ways :toothygrin:

Ritu R April 2, 2012 at 7:23 pm

mac book pro :waiting: :waiting: …shade is good, but not for me….i have pigmented lips….need full coverage :smug: :smug: :smug:

Reply

Aarbee April 2, 2012 at 7:39 pm

yeah this one’s definitely not for pigmented lips because of the shade and I also feel that Mac Lustre shades are not full coverage, kinda sheer 🙂
