The Best Mac Lipsticks for Indian Skin: Top 5 !

by mehak on January 2, 2014

in Lipsticks, MAC, Reviews

Lets face it. Most of  the international makeup brands seem to love all their pale pinks and purples which make us look like the ghost from one of Ram Gopal Verma’s gazillion horror movies. But i have a list of lipsticks from Mac that will make you look your superstar best straight out of the Desi Girl video on an everyday basis! These are my list of the Best Mac Lipsticks for Indian Skin tones (MLBB variety).  These are all mostly pinky browns, or peachy browns or any other color that looks like a great neutral color for your face.

TheBest Natural looking Mac lipsticks for Indian Skin are:

1. Mac Glamour Era Mineralize Rich Lipstick: One of my all time favourite lipsticks EVER from Mac and one that looks super fab on just about everyone. The color is a soft peachy brown, with a nice glossy finish and it works great with everyday office wear and even with heavier eyes- this is a super shade even for very dusky girls!


2. Mac Cosmo: No points for guessing this made it to the list. This one is a dusty pink  that works best with medium skin tones.



3. Mac Taupe Lipstick: Perfect for dusky girls, and one lipstick that every Indian girl needs to test out atleast once in the mac store. A color my sister swears by – this is like the color of earthy, terracotta tiles and looks like the perfect peach on Indian skin tones


4. Mac Twig Lipstick : Another pinky brown thats great for work. Personally i think Twig works best on dusky skintones and Cosmo works best on medium skintones but to each his own! Definitely a nice work wear shade- has a hint of a plummy color to it!


5.Mac Mocha Lipstick: One of my personal favourites honestly and a peachy brown i cannot get enough of. The satin texture may be a tad bit drying but its a beautiful peachy brown that doubles up as a nude when you want it to!


6. Mac Creme in Your Coffee Lipstick: Works best on deep skin tones, and gives a plummy brown but natural look. If cosmo looks too pale on you, creme in your coffee wont dissapoint one bit ! Medium skintones may find it a bit too dark , but perfect for dusky ones.

love the compilation and happy to note i have atleast 2 of them. Are Taupe and Mocha similar btw?


shami January 2, 2014 at 9:11 pm

I’m in bet NC 40-42, but Twig never works for me :( :( :( why?!


mehak January 2, 2014 at 10:05 pm

does it make you look dull? or is too dark? it makes me look dull honestly…thats why i say better for deeper skintones


Supria January 4, 2014 at 12:18 am

Shami you are not alone. I am an Nc42 and twig looks terrible on me like I am trying to pull off a cool toned pink. The brown never seems to show up.

It’s a bit bizarre, when every beauty site out there is recommending twig as the ultimate mlbb for dusky skin tones :(

I am NC 37 and Twig looks nice on me. A tad more orangey than pink-brown but still doesn’t make me look dull. On the contrary, it brightens me up! Am I missing something?


mehak January 7, 2014 at 1:04 pm

I think twig is one of those lipsticks which looks diff on everyone. My sis is NC 42 and it looks like nude on her, on me (im nc 40) it looks plummy..but definitely dull


Sunandha January 7, 2014 at 11:32 am

Same thing happens with Brick o la . . . It looks so washed out on me. I was super shocked.


Gowthami January 2, 2014 at 9:59 pm

Very useful post!! I love twig and mocha..

Velvet teddy was too light, captive too dark for my taste and mocha looked awful on my parched lips. I want to get the glamour era lipstick. Hope it is moisturising.


Blushnblossom January 3, 2014 at 6:24 pm

Mac mocha is my favourite……. I think mac store is like fairy land for lipstick lovers….. I am always confuse which one to buy whenever I visit the mac store…… but this type of compilation always help…… lovely lip swatches.

Give Mac’s Polished Lip a try. It’s really lovely. It’s not exactly mlbb for me, but very close, and might be for someone with a darker skin tone than mine (nc40). It’s a frequent go-to lipstick for me. I’m on my 3rd tube and I don’t even wear lipstick daily, and it’s far from my only color.
