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.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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 & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
