Review: MAC Speak Louder Lipstick



Review of MAC Speak Louder Lipstick


Guest Post By: Marianne

Every once in a while, I have to remind myself to switch it up where my makeup is concerned – both my look and the products I use. Inevitably, I keep coming back to my comfort zone of defined eyes and nude-pink lips. When I consciously want to try something different, I dig deep into my stash and bring out the bright and colourful stuff. Presenting today - my only out and out bright lipstick, MAC Speak Louder!


Speak Louder comes in Cremesheen finish and has the signature faint vanilla scent. It glides on smoothly and evenly and gives almost opaque colour in a single swipe. Another swipe and it covers lip pigmentation completely. It has the slightest sheen to it – not really glossy, but not matte. I really like this finish! I find it neither drying nor moisturising, but it is comfortable on the lips for as long as it is there. If you have dry, flaky lips, you would have to prep them a bit before application. The staying power is for around 5 hours on me, which I find very good. It does transfer to cups though. Even after it wears off, it leaves a strong pink tint which I love (I prefer lip products that stain and leave some colour on the lips). You would need a makeup remover to get rid of it.

The shade is a bright, bright pink, bordering on neon in certain lightings. It lights up the face instantly. To be honest, I don’t wear this lipstick full on outside the house...I just press it lightly on my lips and wear it as a stain and it gives really good colour payoff even worn that way! The thing about bright lips is that you need a bit of work on the rest of the face...they look much better with evened-out skin, and frankly, I don’t have the time or patience to do a full face of makeup most days! Nevertheless, I love this shade and I’m enjoying wearing it in my house and preening in front of the mirror!










Yays!

  1. The shade will suit all skin tones
  2. Long wearing
  3. Very pigmented
  4. I like the finish – neither glossy nor matte


Nays!

  1. Transfers quite a bit
  2. Needs some work on the face to make it look good


Price of MAC Speak Louder Lipstick
INR 1190 for 3 gm.

Will I repurchase?
I don’t think I’ll need to!

Recommendation
If you are someone who loves wearing bright lippies, this is a must-try! It will suit a wide range of skin tones and really brightens up the face. For those like me who are not courageous enough to work a bright lipstick in public, you can always wear it as a stain! It looks beautiful either way.

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

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 ski…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
