MAC Lipstick Bombshell, Milan Mode, Speak Louder

Hi Everyone,

I noticed that I have’t done any mini reviews since May. So to get over my guilt, I’d be doing mini reviews frequently again. :) Here’s to the re-beginings..hihi 😀


l-r Bombshell, Milan Mode, Speak Louder


l-r Bombshell, Milan Mode, Speak Louder

MAC Bombshell



  • Price : Rs 990
  • Finish : Frost
  • Color : pale coral pink with golden finish
  • Texture : very creamy. Glides on easily. The shimmer is not gritty at all.
  • Longetivity : stays for good 4 hours.
  • Pigmentation : sheer to buildable.
  • Goes Best With : lots of blush or dark eye makeup. A very good lipstick if you want to make your lips look a bit bigger. Concentrate most of the color on the centre of your lips. The goldeny frost makes your lips look a bit poutier. But if you don’t like frost colors at all, skip it.
  • Skin Tones : light to medium
  • Fragrance : vanilla
  • Do I like It? I don’t love it because I have to make an extra effort to pull it off but a very pretty everyday shade for those with fair skin tone.
  • Rating : 3.8/5

MAC Milan Mode


  • Price : Rs 990
  • Color : magenta pink with bright pink and silver shimmers. The shimmers are not in-the-face kinds. They look very sophisticated.
  • Finish : Lustre. Sheer ,glossy and buildable. But it does not become completely opaque.
  • Texture : goes on smooth. I find shimmers to be slightly gritty but not uncomfortably gritty. A bit moisturizng.
  • Longetivity : 3 + hours
  • Goes Best : during day time and especially night time because of the light shimmers it has. Works well with dark eye makeup or soft day time light makeup.
  • Skin Tones : light to medium to dusky.
  • Fragrance : Vanilla
  • Do I like It? Yup!
  • Give it a go : if you like soft glossy shimmer lipsticks and don’t mind reapplying. The color itself is really pretty for most Indian skin tones. Also, if you are scared of using very bright pink lip colors, this is a very nice shade. It is bright but not a hot pop of color.
  • Rating : 4/5

MAC Speak Louder Lipstick


  • Price : Rs 990
  • Color : a carroty reddish pink
  • Finish : Creemsheen. very creamy, very pigmented, no shimmer.
  • Texture : beautiful. glides on like a dream. Does not settle in fine lines. non drying.
  • Longetivity : 4 + hours
  • Goes Best : on its own. Just a bit of mascara and this on lips, you are good to go.
  • Skin Tones :  all skin tones.
  • Fragrance : Vanilla
  • Go for it : if you like bright pinks but looking for a different kind of pink, which is not exactly fuchsia or your regular ol’ pink. It is a gorgeous bridal color as well.
  • Do I like It? Love it
  • Rating 4.5/5

Clicked my pics on my own after so long. Not sure but that’s how the colors look on me. :)

Milan Mode for me. loved the shade in the lipstick and was happy to see it looks equally good on the lips too. welcome back to product reviews. Can some please review the shahnaz Husain eye cream?. The lady in the parlour recommended it and said I would see a difference in a week :) am quite curious now..

Absolutely loved Speak Louder on you. Bombshell looks pale even on you, it would certainly wash darker skin tone like mine out.
