Today’s review is on one of my favorite MAC lipsticks, “Capricious.” A few months back, I went to the MAC store to check the shade “Cosmo.” Unfortunately, I was not so happy of the way it looked on my NC42 skin. I gave up the idea of picking Cosmo and started trying other shades. That is when I narrowed it down to “Plumful” and “Capricious.” As they did not have stock of “Plumful,” I picked up Capricious.
My Experience with MAC Capricious Lipstick:
MAC describes it as a “fanciful rose plum.” On my lips, it looks more of a pinkish-mauve shade with a nice sheen. The website swatch for this particular shade was of not much use. It is a sheer lipstick but can be built to a medium coverage. Though I have slight pigmentation on my lips, I like to use these kind of sheer to medium shades.
It is a lustre finish lipstick, which is again my favorite finish. I’m not a big fan of matte/drying lipsticks. I feel that wet or glossy looking lipstick give a healthy look to the lips.
It is very moisturizing, so a lip balm underneath can be skipped. I would say we should skip the lip balm, as it is a sheer shade and it would be difficult to build the shade on the lips.
I’m happy about the fact that I would be able to finish this lipstick unlike my other lipsticks, as I need to re-apply it quite often, thanks to its low staying power (2-3 hours). I wear it with a pink or mauve blush. It looks good with simple to moderately heavy eye makeup.
Pros of MAC Capricious Lipstick:
- A shade that would look good on almost all skin tones.
- Very moisturizing.
- Gives a healthy look to the lips.
Cons of MAC Capricious Lipstick:
- Its staying power, which I actually don’t mind.
- When I apply a little too much, the color bleeds slightly around the lips.
Do I Recommend MAC Capricious Lipstick?
If you are a fan of sheer lipsticks that give a healthy look to your lips, then MAC Capricious is for you, but not for girls who wants their lipsticks to stay for a solid amount of time.
