“Lipstick can’t solve all problems but it’s a pretty great start”… yeah it solved my problem of finding a perfect n*de shade for me. Yes, I never love neutral kind of shades as I saw it wash me out…But when Mac announce that they are going to launch their matte Lip collection in October 2014, I just thought to pick one neutral shade from this range and yes I grab “Pander me” a lovely n*de shade.

Packaging & Price:  The lipstick comes up I usual black case packaging which is similar to regular one lipsticks.. Price: Rs.1450 INR
Availability:  Limited edition.

Few words from MAC the Matte Lip Collection for October 2014:-
Revamp your look with daring new shades of our iconic matte Lipstick. Vibrant hues like fuchsia Heroine and Le Vie En Rouge are a bold contrast to the rich burgundy of Fashion Revival and sultry nude of Styled in Sepia. For the ultimate in colour intensity, Pro Longwear Lip Pencils enhance Lipstick in super-saturated shades that make a classic, modern statement. For a polished finish, accent with the soft, pinky hues of Pro Longwear Blush — long-lasting colour that’s purely fabulous.

My experience:
The lipstick Pander Me is a soft peachy mocha shade that will suit mostly fair to medium skin beauties. It is quite closer dupe of Mac permanent range of lipstick “Mocha” but that is in different texture. This lipstick is matte in texture whereas Mocha is satin in texture. The vanilla scent of the lipstick is the plus point that drag me to buy Mac again and again. The staying power of the lipstick is 5 hours. It can survive small meal and drinks but leave a slight history of your lips in your cups or glass. The lipstick although matte but glides super smoothly on lips but turn out to be matte within few minutes of application. It is quite pigmented and one to two swipe is enough to get full coverage. In short it is a great N*de shade which I think is just perfect for Indian fair to medium skin beauties. The lipstick is bit drying in winter so proper exfoliation of lips is necessary else it will accentuate fine lines of lips.

Now, its the time for swatches & LOTDs

  • Regular packaging so priced as regular line of lipstick of Mac.
