MAC Lipstick in Snob Review and Swatches

MAC Lipstick in Snob Review and swatches
Hey there!
I have reviewed the Maybelline ColorSensational Make Me Pink which was an epically disastrous gift from my brother and the product I am now going to review is something similar from my dad’s side.
My brother and dad love buying gifts for the girls in the family but also seem to suffer from a distinct colour blindness that makes them incapable of understanding if a colour has a chance in hell of suiting the recipient of the gift. But as they say, it’s the thought that counts. Love you loser and daddy! :* :p

I am talking about MAC Lipstick in Snob.
Price: 1100 INR (Revised price, I got it for 990 INR)
My take on MAC Snob: My dad got quite a few goodies from MAC (thankfully the rest were much better!) out of a mere whim. This was one of the last that I unpacked, so thankfully I was spared the disappointment. :p

MAC describes this as a “ladylike mauve” but for me, this colour is more of a weird pink with cool lavender undertones. It is one of the colours that I just can’t seem to work with an outfit or eye makeup! It just clashes horribly with my dusky skin tone which makes me look incredibly sallow and haggard.

But this colour is one of the most fast moving shades in MAC lipsticks and is frequently out of stock in predominantly white countries. I feel that those below NC15 in MAC can really own this colour without any issues, but those above should tread with caution.
The lipstick has a satin finish that is much better than matte for dehydrated lips like mine but somehow this colour is a very drying satin. It clings to the dry patches on my lips, despite exfoliation prior to application. This makes the colour look particularly sorry on my lips. It lasts a mere 4-5 hours after which it begins to fade unevenly, something that I don’t expect from a MAC product.

But nevertheless, there are two ways this can be used by those darker than NC15:
As a colour corrector to help conceal light dark circles
Layer this lipstick with brighter colour to change the tonality and vibrancy of the brighter colour.

What I like about MAC Snob
Suitable for very light skin tones
Unusual colour
Could be an MLBB shade for some
Satin finish
Travel safe classy packaging

What I dislike about MAC Snob
Applies patchily
Not suitable for dusky Indian skin
Availability is a bit of a problem
Fades patchily
Priced exorbitantly
Longevity is average, a mere 4-5 hours which is pretty  low for such an expensive lipstick

Rating: 3.75 out of 5

Would I repurchase MAC Snob? This shade? Hell to the no!
Would I recommend MAC Snob to friends?
If they are an NC15 or lower? Yup!
Otherwise? Stay far-far away!
