I have reviewed MAC Lip Pencil in Spice HERE

Chestnut is just a different shade of the same pencil . MAC describes Chestnut as intense brown. It is a dark chocolaty brown with slight burgundy undertones. It is not a shade for everyone. If you like to wear deep dark brown lipsticks, this may be a good shade for you. This could be a nice MLBB shade for those with chocolaty brown complexions. I do find this quite a mature-bold lip color.

I couldn’t wear it on its own so I tried using it underneath very pale lipsticks colors. It adds color to the pale brown lipsticks and make them more wearable.

But overall I feel, it is a very peculiar shade. Not for everyone.

The texture is creamy. Staying power on its own is 4 hours. Not moisturizing. Would accentuate the fine lines if worn without a lip balm. It is a sharp-enable pencil and sharpens pretty well with regular cosmetic sharpeners without breaking.

And this is how it looks on my NC 35 skin tone. I have applied clear lip balm underneath. It does not have any shine on its own.

  1. Ooooh! This is the first time I’m seeing u in a deep brown on ur lips, Rati!!
    AFter looking at ur pic I personally feel that u can carry off ANY color!!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

    1. This is just not my color ramya. i just had to review it, I did it. 😛 I have tested this shade on many days at home only. 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

      1. yupppp….it looks a bit different na…from usual nudes and pinks…… 😀 hat ke color for hat ke occasions!! :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:

      1. i am yet to see MAC Me Over…it launched on 26th here….. 🙂 i will go tomorrow…..may be…. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. And I just saw the butterfly :tongue:
        And yeshh,it would look good with orange lip balm..I tried orange lip balm with a brown lip pencil after you did that Gossip girl breakdown ,and it looked really nice :preen: :preen:

  2. Priti,

    This shade is quite 90s.. My mom used to have so many of these dark lipstick shades. :))

    I can imagine that this a few people would like this shade. This is a very selective one. :)) I’ll try it with orange lipstick and see how it works. Thank you. :))

  3. well… sorry Rati this one i have to pass. I think you look a lot better in other shades …but u have given us a good idea of how this might look on this skin color 🙂

  4. Very Peculiar shade – Reminds me of kitty party aunties – dunno why :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: I wonder how it would look on someone duskier ???

      1. It looks like its just been used for lining … but yeah I think this is more like the TG for a lip pencil of this shade …. that or white emo/goths 😛 :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

          1. oooooh wait I know what this colors reminds me off … its very Silk Smitha !!!!! :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

      1. i was a co-compere in the fest…i’ll send u a pic and u’ll know! this teacher was waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy BIG than what i was….if she said go and squat i’d have done it!!

  5. :)definitely not jus a Halloween shade lol
    Am sure u can wear it with a lot of ethnic wear. The shade in itself is nice.
    As such MAC lip pencils are my favs though I wouldnt say they are the creamiest in the market… I have replenished twice, all shades of pink n plum in retractable form. :tremble:

  6. Definitely not suitable for all and honestly not for you too sweetie..I wud say this is just not your shade..too dark..I think it would probably look good on dusky beauties ?:) probably NC45+ ?:) though not sure 🙂
    the first swatch reminded of brown eyeliner 😀

  7. this looks so similar to the Lakme Chestnut Matte lipstick, the ones that came in Green caps, and I know I must have bought at least 3 of em ,one after another, they were such a rage back then… :woot: :woot: :woot:
    I think dabbing some golden pigment might add a little glamor to it, or maybe rust colored pigment, don’t know…just thinking.. ?:) ?:)

  8. sooo dark…! not wearable at all.. it looks like a runway colour for autumn/winter..!!
    my preferred hade would be spice anyday!!! just loved it on you..!
    though u carrying this off too… but i understand it would b still uncomfy wearing in public na :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

  9. Soo dark! 😐 😐 Looks a little vampy and mysterious…But I would never step out of my home wearing this! :nono: :nonono: :yikes:
    I am much more comfortable with reds…And that’s saying something! I actually hate red lippies rite now! :methinks:
    And the nuts and butterfly make me smile. :dumb: :dumb:

    1. vaishakhi it would actually suit a very selective set of people- one who have dusky skin tones or the ones who love to carry such shades. unfortunately i dnt belong to the either group . 🙂

  10. Ratii.. u r looking soamazing with this also… me too dont like these dark dark shades.. :nonono: :nonono: .. but yes i think i wud look gr8 as an eyeliner…
    ur photography skillsss are just :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho:

  11. I used to wear these kinda colours when i was in college and my dad used to keep asking me why i wanted to look unhealthy. this colour reminds me of that lipstick. it’s too brown. well articulated review, Rati.

      1. hihi unhealthy as in my dad used to say I look I have some liver problem with the almost black-brown pigmented way i used to do my lips then. I used to so carefully put on all that makeup and then stare at him when he used to say that, but now i kinda get what he meant was to just wear a rosy pink or subtle shade

  12. Rati, as everyone said, it’s too dark, but even then it still doesn’t look all that bad on you, though corals are your MLBB shade. It would look nice as an eyeliner though. And the pics are just too good – you are getting better & better at photography each day. :)) :))

    1. Awww!! Thanks sabrina. Actually this cant be used as an eye liner.. this might tug the eyes.It’s not super creamy as an eyeliner should be. :)) I am glad you liking the pics. :-*

  13. It actually looks nice on you Rati!!! Without the glossiness it would be rather harsh though! I can see this working for darker toned people.

  14. Hey Rati! You look very different than your usual snaps.. BTW tellme one thing.. how do you stock sooo many cosmetics 😯 .. I mean If I talk about lip liners I just have 3 of them and I feel I have to finish 2 of them fast…to make space on my dressing table 🙂
