Mac Twig Lipstick Review

Am i the only one that feels like a 12 year old trapped into a 26 year old body??? I mean, okay i understand i work in a serious office, that i manage a team of 4 MBA grads and im supposed to act like an adult…but my inner 12 year old cant really hide itself. I mean i have an Iphone cover with a pink and grey owl at the back and ears poking out , which people at work think is a UFO or something.  I say things like “Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”  and “Yummmyyyyy” in a squealing kind of voice . I admit, i have even bounced up and down throwing a mini tantrum when my boss has told me we dont have time for a ‘ Treat’  . So to compensate for all that, sometimes i just like to look grown up. Those are the times when Mac Twig Lipstick comes out of hiding and on to my lips!

Twig, as you can tell by the name and the photos is a pretty pinky brown. Yup, this is the kind of colour we in India like to lap up and hence this is usually ALWAYS out of stock in India. ALWAYS People ! Maybe its me, but i do see a hint of a plum undertone to this muted pink brown, and its a color that i whole heartedly recommend to those of you with dark skintones looking for a nice everyday work wear shade. I have to say its a color that looks extremely different on everyone- it will definitely look much lighter on darker skintones than it looks on me, but it still is very flattering. In comparison to other lipsticks, this is a tad browner than Cosmo , and overall looks a tad bit lighter on the lips as well.

Twig is a Satin Finish Mac Lipstick which means it has a semi-matte kind of look. Satin finish lipsticks can tend to be a bit drying and Mac Mocha is definitely a little bit drying, but Twig is definitely one of the nicest Satin finish Mac’s i have tried. Its creamy, and it doesnt pull or tug on the lips and hopefully it wont dry out over time either. Satin finishes last quite a while- atleast 5 hours on me!

Mac Twig Dupe: Nyx B52 Lipstick

Loved the color but not the price? Nyx B52 lipstick is an almost EXACT dupe of this shade. To read about that lipstick go here- Nyx B52 Lipstick





Do i look serious enough?

Verdict :A

Price: 990/-

Recommendation: Mac Twig Lipstick is a beautiful colour for Indian skintones and definitely in my list of ‘Lipsticks dusky girls must own’ . A beautiful pinky brown, this one can be a great MLBB shade for a lot of you. So what are you waiting for?

Very nice shade, currently I am searching a pretty, formal lipstick shade for my campus interviews, I guess I can sport this one without sporting too much, adding this to my list and nice review :)

Yea, I don’t think I ever will “grow up” in that sense…
I don’t have this one but I’d really want to try. I did try to buy it once but like you said, it was out of stock and I bought Plumful instead. ;)


Richa Saxena August 10, 2013 at 11:09 am

You’re soooo pretty!!!!


mehak August 10, 2013 at 2:25 pm

Aww thanks richa!


LittleBigHappy August 10, 2013 at 11:42 am

The colour really suits you!


Shikha August 10, 2013 at 12:37 pm

Mine is more tragic I report directly to Sr VP and work with Directors & VP’s (45+ category) so I have to act maturely, at time feel like dressing up and wear bright bold shades and when I reach office and saw these people in black, grey’s, khaki I feel I am odd one out.. in free time or chitchat sessions my mind/heart want to talk about makeup and latest in fashion, all they talk about is property investment and share market. :(
You made me buy Mehr and now this also seems to go in the list. I went to buy cross-wire after reading your reviews however I felt it to be bright for daily use so skipped it and got ravishing instead.


mehak August 11, 2013 at 5:20 pm

Hehe ! its kind of the same at my office – i have all guys in my team !1


leeb33 August 10, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Shami August 10, 2013 at 5:46 pm

I don’t know why, but TWIG doesn’t suit me at all :( I am NC42 sometimes NC43)

mehak August 13, 2013 at 12:30 pm

anusha August 10, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Clothes and Creativity August 10, 2013 at 9:19 pm

Looks like a nice shade. Is it easily available online?


Supria August 11, 2013 at 1:12 am

Twig seems to look good on everyone but me :( I had to take it back to MAC because it would just sit on top of my lips looking dreadful. I prefer lipsticks that are creamy and blend into my lips.

It looks gr8 escpecially with your outfit Mehak :)


Tamanna August 11, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Pinky brown?? Sounds interesting. Better than Mocha texture wise ?


mehak August 11, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Similar to mocha-both are satin finishes, but definitely creamier.


tejinder August 11, 2013 at 7:17 pm

I love the shade n hawtt lip swatch..
U r looking pretty dear :*


Tara August 12, 2013 at 3:25 pm
