MAC Midi Mauve Lipstick : My Lips But Better

by mehak on January 3, 2011

in Lipsticks, MAC

Have you noticed how many lip products have been going around on my blog ? I feel iv gone from obsessing over blushes to lip products. I am actually very non experimenting when it comes to lips. Ninety percent of the time i go with colours that match my actual lip colour, with an occasional pop of bright colours thrown in here and there. But Midi Mauve by MAC is exactly my kind of lipstick, soft pinky brown with a nice smooth finish..

 The reason the above pciture is courtesy google images, is because my own midi mauve looks something like this:

Umm, i told you i use it everyday!!! Midi Mauve by MAC is a soft brown with rosey pink undertones and is a lustre finish lipstick so it is smooth and creamy to apply and moisturizing for the lips. Its a great colour for indian skin, and is possibly the perfect everyday colour for those with medium to dark lips or pigmented lips.

I never used to look at midi mauve in the MAC store earlier cos i somehow thought thought it would be mauve in colour- and i dont like any shade of purple on my lips. But i was pleasently surprised when the SA recommended this to me, there is obvioulsy no hint of purple in this and its slowly become my favourite MLBB lipstick
Price: Rs 990/-
Will i Repurchase: Yes
Dupes : Very Similar to Clinique Blushing Nude 
Recommendation: A great everyday wear pinky brown colour for medium to dark skintones. Also fantastic for people with pigmented lips- the perfect “my lips but better lipstick”. On cooler and very  fair skintones, though still pretty, might be a bit overpowering  to use as an everyday lipstick

Awww, that's great! I'm fairly non-experimental with lips too. I mostly just blank mine out. I like pale lips on myself. I use a lot of MAC Myth for that! :P
