MAC Lip Pencil in Chicory Review

Heya girlies! How are ya’ll *hifive*

I am back with a review and its of the first lip makeup product I own and that I use every day!*jai ho*


After seeing so many make-up addicts on IMBB :P, I decided to start using lipstick, not that I haven’t used lipsticks before but that was reserved only for occasions like weddings and stuff.  Taking Neha’s suggestions for daily wear lipsticks, I visited MAC, opposite Garuda Mall, Bangalore.  Read on to know my experience.

It was my first visit to a MAC store, and the SA’s there are really sweet. The SA I met was very helpful and patient, me having never used lipstick on a daily basis, I literally bombarded her with a million questions which she patiently answered and stood next to me helping me out as I tried literally every shade they had. I went with the idea of buying MAC Mocha or Twig, but both of them turned out to be a little pale for my skin tone.  After trying almost every single shade out there, I could not find anything that I liked and the SA asked me why don’t I try the lip pencils and that’s when I found this gem, but it was out of stock and I had to wait for two weeks to get my hands on it!

MAC Chicory is a very earthy color, it’s a perfect blend of Brick red, pink and brown, a perfect MLBB shade.

My Take on MAC Lip Pencil in Chicory:

It’s a beautiful daily wear color, for someone who likes subtle shades and too scared to try out bold shades like me, this color fits the bill. It gives a matte finish to the lips, covers up pigmentation beautifully, although I suggest you use a lip balm underneath just to make sure it doesn’t dry out your lips. The staying power is pretty good but fades through meals, so you need to re-apply after eating.

Overall, it’s perfect to either line your lips or use it like a lipstick like me.  I have been using it every single day and it doesn’t take up a lot of product to cover the entire lip, so it’s worth the price too!

The pictures don’t do justice to how beautiful this color is, I tried my best to capture the color, you guys should swatch it in the store to see how pretty this color is!

So, here’s the final verdict:

Pros of MAC Lip Pencil in Chicory:

  • Beautiful MLBB shade.
  • Matte finish which is a pro for me.
  • Good packaging, the cap shuts tight, so you can carry it in your purse/handbag.
  • Enough product to last long.

Cons of MAC Lip Pencil in Chicory:

  • Rs. 990 is pretty steep for a lip pencil, but hey, its MAC after all!
