MAC Cremesheen Ravishing Lipstick Review, Swatches, Price & Buy India

One of my biggest dreams when I started dabbling into makeup was owning MAC Lipsticks. Back then the brand used to be the ultimate luxury for any makeup addict. Now that I own quite a few of these babies, I still want more of them despite the soaring prices. There is a certain charm about owning a MAC lipstick which I guess will never get old for me. Today, I am going to review a very pretty and subtle color perfect for the season called MAC Ravishing Lipstick.

The MAC Cremesheen Ravishing Lipstick is packaged in a typical black bullet with the shade name being mentioned on the bottom. The lipstick is packaged in a black cardboard box which mentions all the necessary details like the date of expiry, shade name, price etc. Since this is a cremesheen finish, the lipstick has started to melt a bit in the summers so I probably wouldn’t suggest taking this out in the heat.

The MAC Ravishing Lipstick has a very smooth and creamy formula which applies easily. It does not tug or pull like the Retro Matte formula and I find it quite moisturizing. That said, it can settle into fine lines and accentuate them so its best to apply this over well exfoliated lips. The lipstick provides a luminous finish which is not too glossy but just perfect.

MAC ravishing
is described as a clean light peachy coral and its pretty close to the description. Its a peachy nude leaning slightly towards a coral. The color can be a bit ashy for warmer skintone and suitable only for pale to fair complexion. I’m NC 30 in MAC and I can just about carry it off without it looking too pale on me. It looks gorgeous when paired with bold smokey eyes.

Pigmentation & Staying Power
MAC Lipstick in Ravishing has a semi opaque finish in a single swipe. The pigmentation can be built up in 2-3 swipes but it is not completely opaque. The lipstick will cover moderate lip pigmentation well. As for the wear time, being a lighter and creamier formula it stays put for about 3-4 hours on me depending on the amount I drink or eat. I find the staying power decent for the consistency.

HBM Rating
4 / 5(Reviewed by Lisha B.)MAC Ravishing Lipstick Review, Swatches, Price & Buy India

HBM Recommendation: MAC Ravishing Lipstick is a gorgeous peachy nude, perfect for everyday wear or to be paired with bold eyes. The formula is moisturizing and stays put for a good 3-4 hours which is decent for the creamy texture. It can be a bit tricky for warmer skintones so I recommend trying this out at the store before buying it.
