MAC LIPSTICKS – BARCELONA RED AND PLUM DANDY AND MAC PLUSHGLASS – BOUNTIFUL – SWATCHES AND PHOTOS.
This post is my entry for the 500th Post Giveaway.
Hello again, all the beautiful ladies cum make-up lovers, especially to all the lipstick dollies and gloss dollies!! I was thinking of doing a MAC lipstick review for some days now, but couldn’t decide on which shade/s to choose. I was suddenly inspired into deciding on one of the shades to review, after seeing Jomol’s beautiful Kanjeevaram saree in her post on Saturday. While looking at the photo of the saree, I was thinking to myself, “I’ve seen that exact colour somewhere” and I even left a comment on her post, that I must look through my packets for a shade that looks like her lovely pinkish-peachish-coral colour Kanjeevaram saree. Sure enough, I found what I was looking for, and it is :
MAC LIPSTICK BARCELONA RED
MAC Barcelona Red Lipstick is a frosted intense coral lipstick. It’s not a typical red, but it’s more on the peachish-coral side, and it looks lovely. A thin layer looks peachish, and applied a bit darker, it looks coral, but in photos it comes across as an intense coral. I love it!
Here it is on my hand :
MAC LIPSTICK PLUM DANDY
I included this lipstick in this post, because it is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. It is described in MAC’s website as “Plum Dandy- Show off plum frosted with bronze (Frost)”. This is a sort of ‘universal’ colour, in the sense that I think it will suit anyone’s complexion, and it also goes with any colour of clothes. When I’m sometimes in a hurry and don’t have time to rack my brains as to match my lipstick with my clothes, I always pick up MAC Plum Dandy lipstick . I don’t know, but sometimes I think to myself that it kind of reflects a colour of its own with any colour of clothes I am wearing, and it’s not too light, nor too dark. It also looks lovely with lip gloss over it.
Here it is, without flash (it was looking totally different with flash, so I omitted that pic) :
Here’s the swatch :
And here it is on my lips in daylight :
And here it is with MAC Bountiful Plush Glass applied over it :
MAC PLUSH GLASS ‘BOUNTIFUL’
MAC says : “MAC PlushGlass Bountiful is Sheer lip color with a pearlised high-shine gloss finish. Comfortable to wear: lush, multi-dimensional, gives a cool-warm vanilla buzz to the lips. Moisturises, soothes and visibly plumps the lips to make them look luxuriously healthy and well-conditioned. Contains vitamin E for added environmental protection.”
Here again, I would say MAC PlushGlass Bountiful is my favourite lip glass, a little goes a long way, and it looks great on top of any lipstick from the ‘pink’ family.
And here are all 3 products together :
All these products have the MAC signature vanilla fragrance.
Full five star ratings from my side for these.
Bye for now, beautiful ladies.
