MAC Midi Mauve Lipstick was recommended by Janhavi.ย  I saw the photo of Midi Mauve lipstick in her haul post and I knew I had to get it. ๐Ÿ˜€

MAC Midi Mauve Lipstick swatch

MAC Midi MauveMAC Midi Mauve is a dusty rose mauve colour with a glaze finish. It would be a “My Lips But Better” shade for many but for me it goes almost nude pink. it just defines my lips a little and give them a nice soft finish.

What I like about MAC Midi Mauve Lipstick:

  • I love the soft glossy finish it gives to my lips .
  • The shade is such that I can wear it with just any blush or eye makeup.
  • I can wear Midi Mauve every single day. This is such an on-the-go shade.
  • It goes on smoothly and evenly on my lips.
  • The lipstick doesn’t accentuate my fine lines. It gives that creamy finish to lips.
  • The lipstick doesn’t dry my lips.
  • Midi Mauve has medium to buildable coverage.
  • Lovely vanilla smell.
  • This lipstick feels light on lips.

What I don’t like about MAC Midi Mauve Lipstick :

  • It doesn’t have a great staying power. It stays on my lips for more than an hour or so..Honestly, not an issue for me. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  The good thing is that the colour fades evenly and not in patches.
  • I just feel that it is not a universally flattering shade. The shade is mostly good for light to medium skin tones. (I am NC 35 in MAC). The shade might look washed on a lot of darker skin tones.

I looovvve peach and coral blushes.. they never go out of season and look so flattering on everyone. :))

You must also include a peach or coral blush in your collection. Thankoo. :-* :-* :-* :-*

Ok..I am not upto flattering / buttering..but its real gr8 how Rati pulls off any shade of lippy she wears :beauty: :beauty: :beauty: ! From such barely there nudes (which I avoid with capital A coz I look baaaaaaaaaaaaad in them) to pretty deep colors (which also I avoid ๐Ÿ˜€ ).. and also sheer ones (which I am scared of :wilt: :wilt:) ..search my wardrobe and you will find only peaches, some pinks and browns that too in matte or cream textures..I dont even wear reds ๐Ÿ™ ..

Rati January 15, 2011 at 5:54 pm

I am sure you would also be able to pull off a lot of shades. it’s just about trying different things. :)) Thanks a ton! :))

Hey Rati,

Awesome pix man! and awesome shade too… I have noticed that these sheer lippies go well with ur complexion. ๐Ÿ™‚ and ur eyebrows are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo purrrrrrrrrrrfffffffffeeeeeeeeeeeeeecccccccccccctttttt :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:
Just a suggestion… get some pix clicked while facing the camera… ur skin will look very dewy ….

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I didn’t get you Tarannum…like i click pics facing the camera only no… ?:)

Reply

Tarannum January 15, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Na rati,

basically, ur photos show a slightly angled profile of u…. and u don’t look into the camera…. Have u seen Aish’s Lux ad, her skin and eyes have a dewy look… it’s because they look straight into the camera… U hv beautiful skin and face…. The camera will surely love u sweets… :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft: :hugleft:

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 8:34 pm

I’ll try. :)) It’s kinda difficult to click your own photos. I am still learning. Thanks for the tip. :))

Reply

Tarannum January 15, 2011 at 8:47 pm

U know, the best trick is make sm1 sit in front of the cam and mark the spot…. and then, set ur cam in the auto mode for 10 sec or 20 sec and take ur pix…. U hv a really pretty face and front profile mein toh katl kar dengi madam aap…. ๐Ÿ™‚ :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:

Hi Rati…This shade really suits you and looks lovely. I have something like this in another shade….Naked Paris (I think) but nudes/light shades make me look so dull and tired, so these days I am sticking to bright shades.

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 8:04 pm

You look stunning in brighter shades, Sabrina. :))

Cherish is nice pretty shade. :)))

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 10:34 pm

It looks more or less like Yash but I think Cherish is better.. ?:)

Reply

Rima Kaur January 15, 2011 at 10:53 pm

yes it’s a better dupe i think, but i’m getting it on monday, even before the MC collection launches
hope i don’t regret my decision once the collection launches and i get to compare them for real ๐Ÿ˜‰

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 11:16 pm

I have a huge confusion about yash myself because I think it would wash off the colour from my face..The shade itself if pretty though…but i seriously liked cherish more. It’s brighter and prettier, imo.

Rima Kaur January 15, 2011 at 11:39 pm

i feel the same

Hahahaha I was waiting for you to do this post… you look lovely wearing the shade. I have to agree about the skin tone thingy – I think up to an NC 45 can pull of the color ….it might look too light after that … but me happpy you got it :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

U can really pull-off a lot of shades Rati- and look awesome in everything ๐Ÿ™‚
btw- I want to get a wea-all-u-can types nude shade lipstick in MAC. which 1 do u recommend???

Reply

Rati January 15, 2011 at 11:21 pm

check out Cosmo and Cherish ( rima’s reco), Creme’d Nude. both the shades are My Lips But Better shades for a lot of skintones. :)) And you toh fair -fair pinky-pinky na so pick up your nude with a hint of pink in it, you’d rock it. :))

i AM ON THE SECOND TUBE OF THIS SHADE..but the only issue is its so creamy, it goes lopsided in the tube after sometime(irrespective of winters) and then I have to use it very carefully or with the brush…so that I dont pop it on the floor.!!overall its just a brilliant everyday color! :waytogo: :waytogo:

Rati January 15, 2011 at 11:26 pm

Thanks Anupam, i’ll be careful with it.totally enjoying midi Mauve :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
