MAC Magenta Pencil review and Swatches



MAC Magenta Pencil review and Swatches 

Post by Tejinder Kaur
Hi everyone!!
I will review another MAC product today and that is lip liner from MAC.  
What Product Claim Formulated for a soft, creamy application! Smudge-free and long-lasting definition of the lips!
My Thoughts:  Lip pencils are a great tool to fill in the lips so that lipstick lasts longer, so I also bought this lip pencil for the same reason. It is a very pretty purple colour, described by MAC as Vivid Pinkish-purple. It has equal quantities of fuchsia and purple shade.

The texture is very soft and quite opaque. One swipe gives good coverage. When applied on the lips it gives matte finish and makes lips a bit drier. The colour is very bold and you may be wondering why I bought this shade when already bought MAC rebel. Because the day when I went for my MAC shopping, SA wore the MAC rebel and this pencil underneath and she was looking stunning.

It can be used with other lipsticks (MAC Impassioned n Girl about Town) as well to tone them down to purplish. The staying power is great at almost 6-7 hours. I would say you can even use it on its own as it’s a very pretty shade and looks really good with black outfits. I wore at work n got so many compliments. I love bright n bold shades and I have number of purple or pink shade lipsticks so can be worn underneath for different combinations. The colour brightens up my mood, face and looks. It is quite a unique shade but if u use with MAC Rebel it looks even more stunning. You can apply any lip balm or gloss which can definitely take care of dryness part. The colour payoff is excellent. It applies evenly and I found the texture very creamy n soft. The formula is very nice you can use it while lining the outer edges of lips and best used underneath a more opaque lipstick and one that is slightly hydrating or moisturizing. It does not smudge at all but I would agree with pulls and drags on the lips. It is daily office wearable or can wear at evening parties depending on your choice. It is perfect for winter/fall. The range comes in a wide variety of shades that work with many different lipstick shades.

Packaging is very simple greyish colour with colour name and brand name embossed over the body of pencil with silver colour. The end part matches with the colour. You have to sharpen this pencil as not retractable. It is very light weight and quite sturdy so can be carried in purse while travelling.

  21. This review is a reminder that I should start using the many lip pencils cluttered in my dressing table. I agree that it accentuates and I can see the effect on you. The colors is vibrant, fit perfectly for your shade.
