In this post I will be reviewing MAC Petal Power Craving Lipstick in shade Skew. It is a limited edition & I was lucky enough to grab this 🙂
Price: 2,400 Rs
Qt: 3 gm
Shelf life: 3 Years from the date of Manufacture
Packaging: The packaging is the exact same as every MAC Lipstick but metallic rose. I love how the Pink ring in the middle of the outer product shines and make the product look more posh and though it’s a usual MAC style it definitely looks classy and feel luxurious. Product’s bottom part has the code and the name whereas the outer carton bears all the vital details and I love how they mention all the ingredients.
Shade: It is described as coral with pink duochrome with a pearl & semi-lustrous finish.
My opinion about the product: Duochrome is when a colour shifts depending on the light so it’s not a surprise that it wasn’t immediately visible. I have to say the duochrome element wasn’t apparent when I swatched it. I was scared that it will wash me off but surprisingly it doesn’t did the same. It is not an everyday colour (I personally don’t wear this much bold shade in day today life), its more like a bold, statemented colour. It is perfect for the summer with less eyes make-up. Basically you have to keep your makeup simple with this lipstick on. This shade goes well with Indian skin tone but I think it makes you look a bit duskier too.
Instead the application was very smooth and of course after the application I felt it to be a bit drying which is totally normal for a matte lipstick and as I always say in all my reviews follow the Mantra “Exfoliate, apply lip balm before applying the Matte Product” which is an open secret now. Kudos to its high staying Power. Though I know being a matte lipstick it’s going to stay for a long time I was stunned since it did not fade away or crumble even after good 8 hours. I think it is a good product to be used on a busy day where you will not have time for multiple touch-ups. Definitely you should go for it if you are looking for a pink & bold lip shade.
ZZM Rating: 4.1/5
These lipsticks are limited edition so definitely availability is an issue. You won’t be able to find it easily.
