Review Of MAC Cremesheen Lipstick Modesty

Guest Post By: Rmyah

How do you tackle a bad day at home, a bad day at college, a bad day at work, a bad day period.
I go shopping. Yeah I know silly excuse. But shopping is my meditation mantra. The lights of the department store, the aroma of the cosmetics, the vibrancy of the colors arranged along the counter, the satin smooth feel of the containers, the touch of the silky product, help me calm down and restore my mental balance. God I sound like an addict :P

I went shopping for my wellbeing and bought another MAC ☺ my stack is growing and I’m as proud as a peacock.

MAC delightful lipstick range always draws me. And somehow I always end up buying the same colors over and over without realizing it. I’m a sucker for MLBB shades. The bolder brighter shades are just not meant for me I guess. I feel a neon sign hanging over my head saying “I’m wearing bold” whenever I attempt brighter shades.

MAC’s crème sheen lipstick Modesty was yet another buy which screams MLBBBBBBBBBB to everyone around. ( I have got to learn to experiment… jeez…)
MAC claims modesty is a muted neutral pink. And probably this is the first time I agree with their color definition :P Modesty is definitely a very soft sober pink which just blends into my natural lip color and yet makes my lips go Oooh Lah laaa.

Review MAC Modesty Lipstick

I really like MAC’s crème sheen range of lipsticks. I like the subtle glossy feel to my lips and the not too drying texture of the lipsticks. I wouldn’t dare going OTT with all the gloss and bling on my lips therefore this makes a refreshing change from all the mattes that are out there.
Being crème sheen, it does transfer on to a lot of cups mugs and glasses ( obviously when I put my lips to them duhhh ) and the staying power is not too great, lasts just about 3 to a maximum of 4 hours. But 
I don’t really mind the trip to the ladies to refresh my lipstick…spares me a butt ache from sitting at my desk all day.

Review MAC Modesty Lipstick

The color looks beautiful on me (I’m currently NC42 after a hated tanning session :P) and most definitely will be a perfect MLBB shade for most Indian skin tones. Fairer beauties will find this their to go shades and the duskier ones will reach for this beauty as much as I do).

Review MAC Modesty Lipstick

Price Of MAC Lipsticks: 

990 INR for 3g.
Makes me want to hurl stuff at MAC for making everything so expensive.

1. MLBB shade for most Indian skin tones
2. Non-Drying and slightly glossy. Just the way we want it

1. Poor staying power
2. Transfers on to almost everything

Overall rating:

Will I be looking for it again: most definitely…Until I find a dupe for it that costs half the price :D


  1. Lovely shade and your pictures are very pretty! I too keep stocking on similar shades all the time... when i first started my collection, I would pick the same colours over and over! have learnt to control that now.... :)

    Have you tried maybelline colorsensational in warm me up? it seems similar to this...

    1. Would you believe it anks if i said I own warm me up too ;)
      I have seriously got to experiment more :D

    2. ha ha ha.... i wud... i sailed that boat once.. even today, most of my colours are mlbb variants.... they look so similar on the lips...

  2. The shade in itself is a very pretty one.. But am sure, it'll wash me out...

  3. This is a lovely shade!!! Exactly the kind of shade I go for an everyday look!

  4. i dont think it will do anything for my very pig lips. nice shade though

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

I was planning on starting this post with a quote on health and all that jazz but then I realized you are here reading this post not cause you want to see my writing style but are here cause you actually want to read the contents :) So I will start without much intro but a little disclaimer before that ;) Disclaimer I am not a doctor or a nutritionist or even a dietitian. I have found out from experience what works for me and I am sharing it with you guys. You are to find out what is right for you and make your own permutations and combination to this regimen of mine depending on your target weight, your lifestyle and all :) Before I start there are a couple of points we need to keep in mind: 1. In order to lose weight one needs to burn more calories than you take in. 2. The human body takes about only 1200 calories to do the routine functions of respiration, digestion etc. 3. Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
