With the mercury soaring high, my mantra to flaunt the cool look with minimal makeup is a dash of lipstick and I am good to go. The scorching heat makes it difficult to don makeup lest it gets smudged or smeared. But with a lovely shade of lipstick, I don't need to worry about the unwanted patches of melting makeup. A perfect shade of lipstick can work wonders for any occasion. Be it a meeting or regular college days or maybe a coffee date, lipsticks always come to my rescue when I need the perfect look. And thanks to its petite size, I can carry it around anywhere. In fact, if I dig into my handbag right now, I can find a black case of my MAC lipstick. I always like subtle shades but not too drab colors. Hence in the quest of finding the right lipstick, I stumbled across the MAC brand. I was enthralled by their wide range of colors and textures. My personal favorite is MAC Satin Lipstick in the Amorous shade because it was my first lipstick from MAC and I instantly fell in love with this pretty shade of pinkish plum. It's something without which I don't leave my house.

My Experience With MAC Satin Lipstick Amorous:

This gorgeous plum shaded MAC Satin Amorous Lipstick is encased within a simple and classy black bullet shaped exterior with the logo MAC printed on it. I found the casing to be pretty durable and easy to handle. In fact the lipstick bar within it is quite sturdy one, as I have dropped my lipstick endless number of times while getting ready in a rush. But thankfully other than a few dents here and there on the lipstick bar, it remains intact.

The Amorous shade, sometimes referred to as Lovestruck Cranberry is an attractive and lovely color without too much glossiness or shimmer. Owning to my dusky skin tone, I have always been very particular about choosing my lipstick as I don't want to flaunt a very loud makeup. After trying out a lot of other shades and brands, I have finally and happily settled down for MAC Satin Amorous Lipstick.

Moreover, this lipstick not only survives the lunch hours but also my evening glass of iced-tea. It stays on me for almost 4-5 hours and gradually fades away leaving a tinge of pinkish hue and keeping my lips soft and moisturized by preventing them from drying or chapping. This is definitely a worthy pick and I feel everyone should try it.

Pros Of MAC Satin Lipstick Amorous:
  • Rich plum shade suitable for any occasion
  • Satin smooth texture makes your lips look lustrous
  • Gentle hint of vanilla fragrance without being too overpowering
  • Lasts for 4-5 hours
  • Touch of pink tint even after fading away
  • Keeps your lips well moisturized
  • Hardy yet classy casing

Cons Of MAC Satin Lipstick Amorous:
  • Comes with a pretty big price tag

Final Note:

What I like most about MAC Satin Amorous Lipstick is the beautiful rich plummy shade. Its satin smooth texture makes it ideal for any occasion. In spite of its heavy price tag, I would any day prefer this over other lip colors. Amorous is a must have shade that you can add to your collection of lipsticks. Do give it a try ladies and I am sure you will not regret it.
