I am somebody who is completely in love with the Mac lippies and back this time, with the review of a lipstick from Mac. It’s called as “Faux” and its in their regular range. I am really surprised that its not already reviewed here. Better late than never. Read on to find out how I like it.
Faux is a nice pink color and lies in the “satin” range of Mac lip colors. I bought this lip color when I was really looking to move away from the typical nudes/brown shades for office. Its something which you can use for work daily.
Its definitely not a bright pink color, it’s a slightly dull pink color, which can be a go-to color if you are wishing to play down on lip colors. Its definitely a nice break from the regular nudes or lighter brown shades which mostly we all chose to put on for office in case we belong to non-creative jobs where not much colors are appreciated usually(unfortunately ).

I am sure many of you would have tried the “satin” range of Mac lip colors but for those who haven’t, it’s a range, which is not too creamy and yet not matte at all. It’s a very nice amalgamation of matte and creamy for me, and it works brilliantly without drying your lips.

The lipstick is not very pigmented and color comes nicely only after 2-3 coats and becomes opaque.
The staying power of the lip color is good. If I put it at 10 am, it lasts approximately till 3( in case you don’t bite/lick your lips too often). This means it survives for about 1 meal.
The lipstick doesn’t leave any stain after the color goes off. Though, I would have appreciated if it left some pink color on the lips. The finish is not too creamy or glossy, but feels very hydrating on the lips. It glides smoothly on the lips.

The color is such that it might give you a washed out look if you are not used to wearing a nice kajal. If you girls like the look of Kim Kardashian’s lip colors, then this should be the go-color for you.
Disclaimer- This color is good for people with slightly pale complexions. Might stand out awkwardly for girls with wheat-ish/dark complexions I think.

Will I recommend Mac-Faux Lipstick:
If you are looking for slightly dull pink, without looking too pinky and need a daily go-to color for work, you should go for it. However, if you already have Mac syrup, then probably lose this one.
