I am here with another LE shade from recently released MAC Matte collection, I swatched all the shades in store and settled for this one although there is one more shade which caught my attention, let’s see! The big issue with MAC Collections is they release very few pieces and hence I have almost stopped stalking stores for LE colours.
MAC Matte Collection Fashion Revival Lipstick review
I hardly pick MAC LE lipstick these days and can’t remember which one I picked last… guess Rihanna collection, if am not wrong. The recent price hike is so annoying and hence I prefer brands like Urban Decay and Too Faced but they are so hard to get here in India. Anyways, coming back to the review … you have seen beautiful Sushmita’s review for La Vie En Rouge from the same range and here is my pick from the collection.
Shade – MAC Fashion Revival is described as “deep raspberry” and true to its name it is cool toned soft raspberry pink shade , everyone says it is very close to MAC REBEL but I don’t find them close enough , firstly due to finish and secondly REBEL have more pink tones to it and is brighter in shade .
Texture – This lipstick comes from matte finish range and the formula seems to be improved over the time. It is easy to glide and doesn’t tug or pull my lips. The finish is gorgeous and it’s not flat matte like RETRO MATTES, there is slight bit of sheen to it which you can see in pictures.
Left – Rebel, Right – Fashion Revival
Longevity – I get some 5 – 6 plus hrs of wear with this shade and it leave behind a beautiful subtle tint behind and I have to use a good makeup remover to take off all the traces of lipstick. I do feel my lips need a good dose of moisturizer once I take this off.
Pigmentation – it is absolutely opaque in single swipe, second layer added more even finish to my lips and it is nice and light weight on my lips even after layering.
What I like about MAC Fashion Revival Lipstick –
The shade is absolute wonderful for fall.
The opaque coverage in one single swipe.
The staying power is awesome.
The texture is not dry and has some sheen.
The lipstick glides easily on well moisturized lips.
What I don’t like about MAC Fashion Revival Lipstick –
It can be little patchy and uneven if you have dry lips.
The price is too steep for MAC Lipstick these days.
Ratings – 4.5 / 5
I absolutely adore the shade on my NC 40 skin tone and feels it will flatter most of the skin tone easily, for some it may be little too dark in day time but for night out it is such a perfect shade and trust me a good highlighter and this will make you look polished in seconds .
