Today’s review is going to be on the MAC Faux Lipstick. Of late, I had been buying several bright shades of lipsticks that while being great for parties and festivities couldn’t be worn on normal days. So on my next trip to the MAC store, I got a couple of MLBB shades like the MAC Twig, MAC Brave and MAC Faux. So how did the MAC Faux Lipstick work for me?

How Did MAC Faux Lipstick Work For Me?

The MAC Faux Lipstick comes in the standard black bullet packaging that is both sturdy and also travel friendly. As with all MAC Lipsticks they have a nice weight to them but they are also very sleek to slip into the purse for on the go touch ups. The lid clicks shut so there will be no hassle of them opening in your bag or purse. The Faux shade from MAC is a pale pink shade with mauve undertones and has a satin finish. I would say that this lipstick is a shade or two lighter than the MAC Twig and MAC Please Me.

The faux mac lipstick has a really creamy texture and as with all MAC lipsticks, it comes with the subtle vanilla fragrance which no one could hate. When it is being applied, it glides onto the lips smoothly and goes opaque in the first swipe itself. Out of all the MAC Lipstick finishes satin is my favorite as they keep the lips super hydrated, goes on opaque and stays on for a good amount of time.

The MAC lipstick faux stays on for a good 4 to 5 hours, doesn’t dry out the lips and wears off evenly without leaving a stain on the lips. Also this lipstick doesn’t settle into the fine lines so that is a plus. Before applying the lipstick I would like to line my lips with MAC Soar Lip Pencil to give my lips more definition and this shade suits me best when I line my lips and then apply the mac lipstick faux instead of just applying only the lipstick.

The faux mac lipstick shade which is a beautiful MLBB shade, will be best suited for light to medium skin tones and will probably wash out darker skintones. If you are unsure on whether it’ll suit you or not, I recommend trying it out in the store before buying it and just like MAC Twig, this shade would perfect for everyday work or school and personally when going out I would like to pair it up with smokey eyes and it looks equally gorgeous. If you are looking for MAC Faux lipstick dupe, the Wet N Wild Fergie Daily Lipstick.
