It falls under the cremesheen finish category. I am not too fond of them as I find the texture a little stiff and sticky. It also imparts a shine which I do not like.


The shade is to die for. It is a lovely combo of red, pink and coral, quite a unique one and am still not able to find a dupe for it.

Packaging: As always, the same old black case with the name at the back.

It is creamy but still a little uncomfortable on my lips. I wouldn’t say it is super smooth but definitely not drying. It does emphasize lines though.

Staying Power:

The staying power is good but fades after food and drinks. It gives a slight shine and stain after few hours. The fading is however, not uneven .

Overall Thoughts:

MAC On Hold is a lovely reddish pink with a hint of coral, a very unique shade that suits all skintones and can be worn blindly anyday. If you like experimenting with new colors, I think you must check it out. I wish the texture was a little better. You would definitely need a lip balm and also re-application.
