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. :lol:
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:
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!
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!
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:

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!
