MAC Syrup Lipstick Review, Swatch, FOTD

mac syrup lipstick review

Price : Rs 990

Claims : Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

MAC describes Syrup as Cloudy Pink .

Syrup is a lustre finish lipstick. It is a nude pink color with mauve undertone. One me it looks like a My Lips but Better (pink).

If you have tried lustre lipsticks form MAC you’d probably find them quite addictive. MAC lustre lipsticks are the kinds that you want to keep applying them on and on and on your lips. They feel light and are very moisturizing. Syrup is creamy has a light glossy finish to it. It’s a nice pink nude color and would work on light to medium skin tones. The mauve undertones may work for slight dusky skin tones as well (say NC 40-42). It is an easy to wear color , a nice day time one and goes well with smokey eyes. Without dark eyes or heavy blush it may sometimes wash out the color from face.  It is quite pigmented and no matter how many layers of it you apply on your lips, it never goes cakey. 

It is super moisturizing but the only glitch is the staying power. It stays on for around 2 1/2 hours on lips. But you really wouldn’t mind reapplying it. A great day to day color, looks lovely, feels moisturizing and has a nice vanilla fragrance.

I enjoy wearing Syrup. It’s “my kinda” color. :))

It is a part of permanent line so you can keep repurchasing it. 😀

And what is the blush u are wearing here? So nice…very natural. :makeup:
And Ratii!! :hunterwali: :hunterwali: all the time wearing animal prints or what? reminding me of those flats. :hunterwali:
And I have decided…Once I get the chance to buy a mac lippy,it’ll be this one first. Because I’m sure that cosmo will somehow wash me out. :struggle:
