MAC collaborated with three makeup artists – Diane Kendal, James Kaliardos, and Kabuki to create colour collections reflecting each artist’s signature style. MAC Kabuki Magic Spring/Summer 2017 is now available in India and from the collection, I have two retro matte lip colours to show you. Presenting Fallen Angel, a deep berry and Flamingo Road, a purple magenta. They are priced at Rs 1850 each and available in stores and on Nykaa.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that MAC Cosmetics is finally available at Nykaa. The concerns I had after hearing the news was whether 1) the prices would be the same as in the stores and 2) if they would have the same collection and not a capsule one. I am happy to say yes to both and in fact, online they are actually launching products that have not hit the stores yet. I am talking about the twelve new MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick shades that are part of the Spring 2017 collection. These are as of now only available at Nykaa and I picked up two of them – Topped With Brandy and Chocotease. The liquid lipsticks are priced at Rs 1850 each.
MAC is out with bunch of new products in July. I shared with you the review of Hot Chocolate, one of the lipsticks from the Vibe Tribe collection. Another collection that is now in stores is Transformed and it includes six new shades of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks and Huggable Lipsticks. I was not really planning on buying anything from the collection but I saw a friend of mine wearing this beautiful bright red and I had to get it. The shade was MAC Red Jade, a new Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick priced at Rs 1800.
Elle18 recently launched their Color Pops Matte Lipstick range and in this post, I’ll do a quick review of them and show you swatches of five shades. The lipsticks are priced at Rs 100 each and available in 20 vibrant shades.
There are matte lipsticks and there are Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipsticks. I have the shade Amazing Grace and believe you me, this matte lipstick is by far the best matte lipstick I have used till date and I have used quite a lot! Makeup Artist extraordinaire Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup range was launched last year and people have not stopped raving about her products. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some of these beauties for a while now but never did I imagine that I would get them so suddenly. One of my best friends from school who now lives in London visited Kolkata a couple of weeks back and knowing about my makeup addiction, got for me Amazing Grace and the Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette which I’ll show you later. Let’s talk about Amazing Grace today.
