MAC Offshoot Lipstick Review

I’ve always been a gloss lover, but IMBBians and their amazing LOTDs made me fall in love with lipsticks :inlove: .  I went to the MAC store to buy “See Sheer,” but it was out of stock.  So, I decided to try something else and I loved this “something else” (read: Offshoot) so much that I immediately picked it up!!

MAC Offshoot is a cremesheen lipstick from the MAC Me Over Collection.  MAC describes it as a mid-tone neutral pink.  The packaging is the standard MAC black bullet shaped shell which is adorable.


Rs.990 for 3 gm.


My Experience with MAC Offshoot Lipstick:

This is my first lipstick from MAC and I am head-over-heels in love with it. I’ve been using it regularly from over a month now. It gives a nice coverage to my pigmented lips. The texture is really soft and creamy with awesome pigmentation. So, just one swipe and you’re good to go!!

I suffer from LED (Lipstick/Lipgloss Eating Disorder :toothygrin: ), so no lipstick stays on me for long, but this one survived around 2 hours and that’s an achievement in itself 😛

Here’s the swatch.


My skin tone is MAC NC35 and this is how it looks on me with a single swipe.


Pros of MAC Offshoot Lipstick:

  • Highly pigmented.
  • Does not bleed.
  • Does not settle in fine lines.
  • Non-drying. It is quite creamy, so doesn’t need a balm under it.
  • Will suit most of the skin tones.

Cons of MAC Offshoot Lipstick:

  • Limited edition product, hope they make it a part of their permanent collection.

Statutory Warning : Tragic Picture. Weak-hearted lipstick lovers are requested not to scroll down. 😛

    The last pic is surely terrifying :tremble: i don’t know how i’ll react if my first MAC lippy has a similar fate. but very well written post. :puchhi:

      1. i was telling i loved the shade on you a lot. 😉 LOTD is smoking hot :teddy: And you have written it nicely :clap: :clap: just sad for the broken lippy :ghost:

  14. Lovely color Deepshikha :yes: I am waiting to purchase my first MAC lippy and all these LOTDs are really helping me decide. Thank you :puchhi:
    One suggestion: The LOTD seems to be taken in a light yellow light. So I was wondering if the shade of the lipstick is exactly the same or did it get modified due to the yellow lighting? :chewnails:
    It will be great if you take pics in natural light to give an even better idea of the color on lips :-*
    Just a suggestion from my side :shying:

    1. Thanks so much Jismi. I agree with your suggestion.The first swatch was taken in natural light.As far as my lip swatch is concerned..I had to click my own pics and that too for the first time so had to stand in front my mirror and do it..Thats why the yellow light !! :preen:
      Will try taking pics in natural light next time :))

        1. but I get bouts of LED when I am really really angry :devil: :devil: and cant express my anger..I bite my lippsshh and eat lipistickkk :-* :-* :-*

    1. Thx Ginny…
      Colour blind?? Yayyy…I’ve company :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
