If you have been waiting for MAC’s Vibe Tribe collection, rejoice, coz it hits the stores this month in India. Vibe Tribe is MAC’s super sized summer collection and includes a wide range of products from lipsticks, eye shadow palettes, blushes, bronzers to even makeup bags. I picked up only one lipstick from the collection, Hot Chocolate, which is actually a repromote from a collection that launched nearly four years back. Since Vibe Tribe is limited edition and because of the beautiful tribal-inspired packaging (which did generate some controversy in the US), the price is slightly higher than usual. Hot Chocolate and the other three lipsticks in the collection is priced at Rs 1600.
If you are thinking that Hot Chocolate is a dark rich brown, you are wrong. It is a brownish mauve on me and leaves a slight sheen on the lips. Pigmentation is good and it has a lovely creamy texture. The lipstick is not hydrating but it does not dry out lips either. The color is a good balance of warm and cool undertones so it will work on pretty much most skin tones. It stays on me for about four hours.
Are you planning to get anything from the new Vibe Tribe collection?
