Phew! Finally the rain gods did show some mercy on us Chennaiites and the weather is a lil better than before. Hope it’s the same case in your city as well. My skin has gone for a toss already and I have been skipping base makeup mostly. I have been sporting hot pinks on most of the days this summer. I have been a lover of hot pinks always as they compliment my skin tone really well. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick Speak Louder is a lovely hot pink from MAC’s permanent collection.
Review of MAC Speak Louder Lipstick
Packaging: Standard black matte case with the shade name on one end.
MAC describes Speak Louder as a clean poppy blue pink. It is a cool toned hot pink, wearable on all skintones, MAC Girl About Town is brighter and more blue toned. It is an easy to wear bright pink lipstick for those who are scared to sport brights.
Price: Rs. 1190 for 3 grams. Thumbs down for the price hike.
Texture: It falls under the Cremesheen finish category which is not my favorite. I find these less creamy compared to the Amplified creme finish ones. They give a certain shine that I dislike. Nevertheless, Speak Louder definitely speaks for the quality it delivers. It is well pigmented and you would need 2 swipes for full intensity. The staying power is remarkable as it stays put for more than 3-4 hours easily, fades evenly leaving behind a stain.
Texture wise, not the smoothest of all, a lil bit sticky and uncomfortable on the lips. But it does not settle in lines. It does not make my lips look fuller like the Amplified ones but still no regrets.
1. Summer perfect hot pink
2. Good pigmentation
3. Remarkable staying power
4. Sturdy packaging
5. Gives lustre and shine
Final Words: Speak Louder is a lovely hot pink that is flattering on all skin tones. It is great in pigmentation and staying power but if you have dry lips, you may find this less moisturizing.
P.S: I went hunting for a dress of a similar color and how lucky I was to get exactly the same shade.:)
