Mini Reviews : MAC Lipstick Fetish, Paramount, Spice it up, Media



Hi Everyone, 🙂

A few months back a few of you asked me to review some of the darker shades of lipsticks from MAC. I tested and tried them then but never got around to reviewing the lipsticks. So here are 4 shades from MAC that would go beautifully with most Indian and darker skin tones. They are beautiful shades for winters as well. Hope you enjoy reading the reviews. 🙂


MAC Lipstick Fetish

mac lipstick fetish

  • Price : Rs 990
  • Finish : Frost
  • Color : a medium brown with a golden/copper glaze
  • Texture : smooth and very lightweight. Does not settle in fine lines.
  • Longevity : 4+ hours. Starts fading evenly after drinks or meals. But I would put it in a
  • Pigmentation : semi opaque. Not buildable.
  • Goes Best With : peachy / neutral blush colors. Keep the eye makeup matte to balance out the frosty look of the lips.
  • Skin Tones : all skin tones. Would look especially good on most Indian (wheatish) skin tones.
  • Fragrance : vanilla
  • Do I like It? Yup! One because it is not super frosty that would make your lips look weirdly shiny. It also gives a very comfortable wear on lips. It is not too moisturising or drying. Just perfect. I find it a very sophisticated color to be worn with Indian wear especially. 🙂
  • Rating : 4.5/5

  • Price : Rs 990
  • Finish : Satin
  • Color : deep burgundy-ish plum. It reminds me of MAC Rebel
  • Texture : creamy and smooth
  • Longevity : 4+ hours and fades evenly to light wine color tint.
  • Pigmentation : super opaque
  • Goes Best With : very neutral eye makeup and most mauve / pink blushes.
  • Skin Tones : all skin tones. It only depends on whether you’d would be able to pull off this dramatic a lip shade or not.
  • Fragrance : vanilla
  • Do I like It? I think it is a brilliant lipstick with a beautiful texture and finish. Excellent shade for the winters. And it would make a great pick for women with wheatish and darker skin tones.

MAC Paramount

  • Price : Rs 990
  • Finish : Satin
  • Color : brick red with brown undertones. No shimmer
  • Texture : very smooth and creamy. Could be slightly drying but not uncomfortable at all.
  • Longevity : amazing staying power of 5 + hours without being drying or uncomfortable. and you’d still see a stain of color on your lips
  • Pigmentation : opaque and buildable
  • Goes Best With : you can totally amp it up for evening with pretty shades of copper, brown or gold on eyes. Blush wise, I feel it looks best with neutral shades of brown.
  • Skin Tones : would go well with most skin tones. 
  • Fragrance : vanilla
  • Do I like It? Yeah it is nice. But it is not unique. If you are planning to buy just a few lipsticks from MAC, you can easily skip this one. You’d find this shade in pretty much every brand available in India. Although there is no denying of quality of the lipstick. It is brilliant both texture wise and wearability. If you are a MAC lipstick fan, give this a shot!

  • Longevity : 3+ hours
  • Pigmentation : semi sheer to buildable
  • Goes Best With : 
  • Skin Tones : would blend beautifully with most Indian skin tones.
