MAC describes this lipstick as a peachy yellow brown shade.
I have had a love and hate relationship with Mocha. After trying it almost 6-7 times at the store I decided that it is a must pick shade for most Indian girls. Well,even Mickey Contractor confirmed it through his Collection.
Mocha is a peachy brown satin finish lipstick. The texture is almost matte and long lasting (more than 4 hours one me). On my NC 35 skin tone it looks more peachy than brown- just the way I like my browns to look. 😀 It is a completely opaque lipstick so even if you have pigmented lips, this would give its true color. I find the satin finish to be slightly drying but it’s not too uncomfortable.
It is the kind of shade that would be “my lips but better” for some, a medium for a few and sort of peachy (for those who have similar skin tone as mine).It is a very pretty shade for most Indian skin tones and sort of on-the-go easy peasy shade. I personally like to use this color only with peachy earthy toned blushes but it sort of goes with with coral blushes also.
It looks lovely with a slight hint of gloss just on the centre of the lips. There is a mild vanilla fragrance but not taste in the lip color.
After my love-hate-love-hate with Mocha, I finally love it and highly recommend it. Just take care of the drying part by applying a lip balm underneath or gloss on top. Otherwise, it is definitely one of the very pretty earthy toned color around.
