Mac Lip Pencil in Beet

Guest Post by Ishita

I hated eating beet as a kid and still do,but  you can ‘beet’ your last shirt that i  love this beet! And I am talking about this MAC lip liner in the shade beet.MAC describes this as a liner for shaping,lining or filling in the lips ,its creamy,pigmented and longlasting. Now if I had to choose my any 3 top lip liners from MAC,this liner is surely gonna make it to the list.MAC describes this colour as a pink red. And it is a beautiful darkened pink going on to raspberry red,if that makes any sense. Its almost a bang on beet root red colour,atleast quite close to it.

 Darker skinned gals can rock this colour!!! But it can look equally gorgeous on light skinned gals.I got to know about this  baby coz of mac impassioned lippie,this lippie never used to pack a punch on my NC42 skintone.It looked like any other bright pink lippie on me and not the watermelony neon hot pink one it looked on anyone i came across wearing it.So,one day when i was at mac,this wonderful SA made me try impassioned with beet undereath it.

And OMG!!! I was just standing there stumped looking in the mirror over how gorgeous it looked!!  It looks amazing on its own too.This lip liner has gotta be the most fan-frickingly versatile liner ever!!Some other amazing combos to try it with are;

1: With MAC ruby woo(killer!!!) or can try it out with any other red lippie you find difficultto work with

2:Below any pink pigmented lipgloss which goes on sheer on lips and you want it to show up

TEXTURE:  The texture is a lil bit drying.But if if you apply a clear lip balm beneath it this problem is virtually eliminated

LONGETIVITY: This baby lasts on me for ages even though I m real fidgety with my lips.

PLUS POINT: Its one of a kind,unique,versatile colour that you can play with.

CONS:Can be a lil bit drying.

Rating: A


Recommendation: Totally recommend Mac Lip Liner in Beet ! If you are darker skinned, and struggle to find nice lip colors in tones of red or pink then get Pink ASAP !!! This will look as great on lighter girls too. Apart from the fact that this is a tad bit drying its a super lip pencil
