Yesterday- when i left for work, i  locked the outside door  like a responsible 25 year old …. and as i left for work in my own sweet thoughts, i left the key dangling there on the outside like an irresponsible 12 year old ! I was away for 8 whole hours and the key just dangled there inviting any passerby to take a peek into our home !!! When i came home, the boy was already back from work and  SUPER mad  and he was going all like “Someone could have taken our tv, our furniture, our appliances, cash …xyz“and  while i was sheepishly nodding , in my head i was thinking “Someone could have taken my drawing room mirror (im obsessed with this) and my entire makeup collection” . I mean hello…with Mac Mineralized lipsticks worth 1500 in your stash, you are bound to get paranoid that a makeup thief will enter the premises!!!!

The new Mineralized Rich lipsticks from Mac look like cute little Chessboard pawns , and come in a range of colours that will definitely check-mate other lipsticks on the block! Style Surge is a light, bright peach and a colour that will look absolutely stunning on lighter skin tones. With me being a bit tanned in the summer, it works under a nude gloss, but if i wear it as is, i tend to look a bit oompa-loompa ish. That being said i don’t for a minute regret buying this because under a warm  gloss this is perhaps the most beautiful peach iv tried so far. Style Surge is  pretty similar to Mac Ravishing, except that Ravishing is more of a coral and Style Surge is more peach (it has more orange in it).

Coming to the formula, i think Mac kind of hit a home run with it. First of all- these lipsticks are incredibly lightweight so they are perfect for summer. NO heavy, gloopy kind of feeling. You would think that because they are lightweight, they arent that pigmented but thats not true! You can wear one layer for a semi-sheer look but two swipes and they are completely opaque! Thirdly, these are super moisturizing- more moisturizing than any other Mac formula and they have a nice glide and slip in them which makes application easier. They are ok in the lasting department- 4 hours is what i get which is about average….

Doesnt this look like a pawn on a Chessboard?

Pros of Mac Style Surge Mineralized RIch Lipstick

  • Incredibly Light Weight -great for summers!
  • Completely Opaque color coverage (Can be built up, even if first layer is semi sheer)
  • Nicely Moisturizing
  • The range of colors in this formula is really nice and there is something for everyone !
  • Nice Glide and Slip

Cons of Mac Mineralize Rich Lipstick

  • No con as such, wear time is average but not bad at all

Verdict: A+

Price: Rs 1550/-

Recommendation: Mac Mineralized Rich Lipstick in Style Surge is a stunning, light, vibrant peach that will look beautiful on lighter skin tones. On medium tones like mine it works as well, but looks the best if worn under a warmer gloss , else it pulls too light. These lipsticks may be expensive but they are well worth their money- pigmented , lightweight and moisturizing-these are what ideal summer lipsticks are made of ! Definitely getting another one of these.

nice shade… loved it on you… oppsss keys handing on the door… an invitation to all… I can understand when you are in mad rush to windup things at home, getting ready and non-stop calls from your cab mates and transport team.. I ensure that I am not the last one to leave home.. :-)


mehak May 21, 2013 at 9:52 am

i know the transport team drives you mad..


Vipra S May 21, 2013 at 9:58 am

Such a beautiful shade dear :) Looks so pretty on you – Beautiful FOTD :) <3

I too want few shades from this range but currently saving after splurging on Archie's Girls collection :D


Prachi May 21, 2013 at 10:11 am

Nice to see ur blog…
Wich lipgloss r u wearing btw??


mehak May 21, 2013 at 10:16 am

it was some nude beige type gloss


MissBoPeep May 21, 2013 at 10:20 am

It is a beautiful shade. But know what?? There is a dupe of it at Colorbar – Sienna A Magic ;)
But the issue I found with it was that since the formula is very light and soft, it tends to melt in the heat of Mumbai. And it did settle on my lip fine lines when I tried it on. That was my observation.

Also the price is INR1650/- I think not INR 1500/- Unless you got it at some discount.


mehak May 21, 2013 at 10:30 am

Im pretty sure i paid 1550…i bought it in Hyderabad though..


mehak May 21, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Could be 1650 though, it was more than a month back so dont remember


Dhara May 21, 2013 at 10:51 am

Omggg the keysss and your thoughts lol…I think the same too :p My BIL looked up each room of the house and forgot mine while we were going out and I was soo mad at him and he’s like what khazana you have in your room ?? Hubby cheekily replied “her makeup products and nail polishes :p” LOL

About the lipstick, I bought 1 of these and the SA forgot to bill it :/ Your review is just making me wanna visit the store pretty quick ;)

mehak May 21, 2013 at 11:09 am

Thanks Shreyashi! Ooh how old are you now,.,maybe you can get a dupe??? Colorbar would have some nice ones!

Anyhoo, you looking pretty as always! And, this damn locking thing! I now have the habit of saying “Check,Check,Check!” every time I’m leaving the house :P

Bhumika May 22, 2013 at 2:01 am

Thats such a pretty shade..perfect for summers..


thedelhibride May 22, 2013 at 7:11 pm

I love this shade! It’s so pretty! Going on my must-buy list. Is it moisturising enough to not use a lip balm underneath? My lips dry easily, so I always use a lip balm underneath lipsticks.


Karishma May 22, 2013 at 9:14 pm

Love the shade. I don’t feel like buying any lipsticks at the moment waise. I hardly ever finish a lippie.


deepti May 22, 2013 at 9:31 pm

Such a lovely and fresh shade :)


Neha May 23, 2013 at 5:38 pm

I like the shade n praises I am seeing everywhere for mac mineralize. Off the topic, I love ur earrings, can u plz share where they are from.


mehak May 23, 2013 at 6:58 pm

Moms !!!


Sansu May 27, 2013 at 6:17 pm

This suits you very spring summery…but would it suit darker skintones like nc44? I want some peeach or corals tired of all the pinks berries,plums n browns.


mehak May 27, 2013 at 6:19 pm
