Hello my pretty bee beauties…!!
So everybody hands up who has got their perfect nude lip at hands.. well finally I got mine in the face of mac taupe.. well yeah this was the most unexpected of colours that I hot thought of serving as the perfect nude for me.
But yeah I walked into the mac store splurging upon one of the viva glam lipstick and there was offered this and yeah I got it.. I got this beauty to be the perfect lip for any day everyday.
So anyway this lipstick is of my favourite finish from mac ,it’s MATTE and I anyway am a sucker for matte lipsticks.
To be frank when I first tried it out I thought it would be way too dark and brown for my nc 35 complexion(have been super tanned these summers so look darker now) . But I gave it a try and this how it looks on my lips ,it is a pretty brown colour with mauve undertones,that looks girly and not like those sick yester year aunty type browns :p
In my opinion, always a matte or a satin finish is preferred for wen going for a nude lip. . As for me, I am not very comfortable wearing a glossy or shiny nude lip cause it would somewhat look washed out.. I don’t really know everybody has their own opinion mine at least is a matte lip.
Going on upon the details of the lipstick it self.
Nothing much to talk about the packaging as it’s the classic black mac packaging in the bullet shape
As for the pigmentation., The colour goes all opaque in just one swipe.
Even though, its a The staying power is kind of average. . It survives snacks and a little drinks.. but wears off after , a proper meal, or maybe I feel so because of the colour . The colour is so similar to my lips that after a meal or so I am not properly able to make out if it is still there on the lips or not (eyes rolling)
Pros of MAC Matte Lipstick Taupe
The lipstick has the signature mac vanilla fragrance
Overall I would say that its a complete gogo for people with nc 35 to nc 40 complexion.
Might be a little washing off for very deep complexion
Would easily show up even on pigmented lips
In my favourite matte finish
Cons of MAC Matte Lipstick Taupe
All I would wish is that the staying power on this could have been a little better in my opinion,
But as I already said that I find so maybe because, the colour of the lipstick is so very similar to my lip colour, so all of us might have a different say on this front.
It cost me 990 INR but originally now ,after the horrendous price increment by mac ,its 1450 INR.. I got for 990 INR because they had this shade in the clearance section of the previous stock
This shade is not a limited edition colour , and so is easily accessible
Even tough it’s not a very popular colour amongst mac lipsticks, but I am sure it actually is worth every penny you spend.
The best of all that despite being a matte finish lipstick. . Its doesn’t dry out the lips and is creamy enough
