I am very happy to say that this is my first MAC review on IMBB. Frankly speaking, I was a zero in makeup and cosmetics until I came across IMBB, when I used to surf during my free hours in the office. I am very glad that IMBB has brought me to this stage that I am now able to do my own makeup in a decent way.
Well, I went makeup shopping before this Diwali as this was my first Diwali after my wedding and I wanted to gift myself something from MAC. So, I headed to the nearby MAC at Inorbit Mall, Malad. I went there to buy IMBB’s favourite lipstick Cosmo.
The MUA was very friendly and allowed me to try it. Unfortunately, it turned out to be too pink for me. I mean, it looked so unnatural, I am NC40-42 in MAC and thought this would look good one me, but I was disappointed. The MUA also agreed that it did not suit me and then asked me to try a lip pencil that they would usually suggest for someone Cosmo. This shade is called Soar. I thought that this would also not suit my complexion as Cosmo didn’t, but I tried it and absolutely loved it. The MUA told me that I can use this as a lip liner or a lipstick itself. I filled my lips with this and it looked so beautiful and natural and that was what I was looking for.
About MAC Lip Pencil in Soar:
A pencil designed for shaping, lining or filling in the lip. Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They are long-lasting and available in a wide selection of colours that each work well with many different lipstick shades. The colour of Lip Pencils is protected by Vitamin E, which acts as an anti-oxidant, and they contain emollients that moisturize the lips. Lip Pencils can be worn alone, with Lipstick, or Lipglass.
My Take on MAC Lip Pencil in Soar:
This is my first MAC lip pencil and I am so much in love with it. It is a very natural colour and can be worn everyday to make the lips look better. I have used lip pencils from Lakme and Maybelline and they would always break, but I felt that I did not have to put much pressure to apply this at all. It just glided smoothly.
It is a muted rose color, very creamy, and versatile. It compliments my complexion very well. Above this, I applied Cosmo and then pressed with a tissue to just get that shine as this is gives a matte feel to the lips, which I like, but not many would prefer. This stayed for about 6 hours on my lips even after having food and water and I am highly impressed. I also used this with other branded lipsticks and it actually made the colour of the lipstick stay longer.
The packaging is very neat. It comes in a pencil form and can be sharpened. I carry it everyday in my handbag.
Rs. 820 for 1.45 g.
Will I Buy it Again?
Definitely, as many as I can.
