MAC vs. LOREAL

11 Aug

As i was looking out for a new lipstick, I searched the entire mall n found these two beautiful shades.. so here is my review on these two..

First is MAC SATIN LIPSTICK  A22 MOCHA :

  • What is it: a neutral shade that will compliment fair indian skin tone very well & it gives a peach(ish) muted brown shade to the lips.
  • USP: the lipstick gives a matte look but does not dry lips like any other matte lipstick & it has a good staying power, as it lasts for about 6 hours.
  • Wear it daily: Wear it while going out for shopping with your friends, office, and even parties. Also, this shade will complement every color (so wear it proudly with almost any color dress) & it will instantly highlights the fair skin.

Thats is why now i use this shade as my SOS shade which can be used whenever my face looks dull… Although this product is a little expensive but i ensure you that it is worth every penny spend.. 🙂

  • Rating: 9/10 because there is always a scope for a better product
  • Would I Recommend It?: Yes i would definitely recommend this product to my friends and specially those with fair skin tone
  • Price: INR 990.

Second is L’OREAL Paris Color Riche Nutri Shine CP421 Pink Beige:

  • What is it: this lipstick is just the opposite of the MAC lipstick (above)…as i m too fond of peach shades this shade is again similar to peachish pink color.
  • USP: this lipstick does not look like you are wearing a lipstick, rather it gives the look of a lip gloss & it has very minute glittering particles inside it which looks brilliant when wearing the shade.
  • Party with it daily: one can wear this shade while going out with friends and parties, this is a party purpose shade for me as I strictly avoid wearing glittering shades to the office.
  • Cons: this shade requires you to use a lipliner or lip primer so that it stays in place! Even though the brand claims that this product provides nourishment and replenishment, I think just the opposite.
  • It tends to make the lips dry and flaky.
  • Longwear Lipstick? NO! one would also need to re apply it again after every 2 hours because its staying power is not long enough due to its glossy nature.
  • Rating : 7/10
  • Would I Recommend It? I would strictly recommend this lipstick only if you dont have dry lips else use a rich moisturizing lip balm underneath this.
  • Price: INR  720
