The ice about the Alluring Aquatic collection by MAC has already been broken with my sweetheart having raved about the black swan liner so here I am reviewing about the lipstick from that limited edition collection in the most beautiful name GODDESS OF THE SEA and the freaking most amazing packaging,I have let go my YSL after I got this packaging, the world raved about the packaging,and so have I been in complete awe.
MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Goddess Of The Sea Lipstick Review
Available at all MAC outlets priced at Rs. 1300 for 3 grams.
The color is a dark mauve with blue undertones,yeah not like those oldie drugstore mauve with red undertones that looked kind of aunty type,this one is a complete chic,one thing I don’t get why did they launch such dark colors for summers,if these are for summers what do they plan for fall and winter,I wonder,this lipstick is in a cremesheen finish which I don’t prefer, but had no other option
For the pigmentation in the first swipe you don’t really get in the face color obviously because it’s a cremesheen so I have to run it two or three times to get a full opaque finish. On application you have a subtle sheen like every other lipstick in this finish has,for the texture I found it to be somewhat thinner than regular cremesheens as compared to lickable.
I found this one went more thin and a little less opaque on the lips which I like,as it is it’s a very dark color and really intense nothing of this kind do I have before cause I am more of a candy color girl.
The packaging of this lipstick is what the world is taking about,the lipstick tube is a plastic with a metallic blue paint that is super reflective,with actual plastic faking water droplets raised all over so u actually can feel it,god this lipstick has a feel in your hand the size is regular as that of a normal mac bullet,but the shine and the water droplets are amazing.
The cardboard box that is comes in in also of metallic finish in aqua color,with water droplets indented ,well this time really lived up to the name of the collection with the packaging unlike the playland collection.
Staying power is 3 to 4 hours without a meal, if you are a matte lover like me what I suggest is that you blot a bit with tissue that would help take off the shine and also improve the staying power.
Pros Of MAC Aquatic Alluring Collection Goddess Of The Sea Lipstick

Cons of MAC Aquatic Alluring Collection Goddess Of The Sea Lipstick
1. The price is 1350 INR (kind of pain but as compared to the price of the regular macs its ok) 2. Availability is a big con,selling like hot brownie with ice cream
