  12. Hi I’m new to mac…I hav warm undertone medium complexion …can u pls suggest a gud shade from mac range…I want to know d price details too….

  13. […] MAC lipsticks have always enjoyed a separate department in my head. The sheer varieties of colours and finishes have always fascinated and truth be told, scared me a little. Wherever I enter a MAC store, I cannot help my head from swiveling in every direction just because there is so much to look at! The SAs are very helpful, of course, but that doesn’t help my eyes from straying here and there! I believe that a lipstick is essential to completing one’s look and the right colour can instantly brighten up one’s complexion. The lipstick that I am going to review and swatch today is a summer pink shade with lustre finish called MAC Lustering. […]

  14. Hi!! I really like your picks !!! I am looking to buy one for my mom .. Not sure what to go for ..

  15. captive and Russian red so need to be added to this list for all kinds of Asian skin tones. Russian red is a gorgeous autumnal matte red colour whereas captive….I’m not even going to go into too much detail about this colour as its so beautiful that no amount of description would do it justice but all I can say is it is more on the plummy side of a deep mauve with a hint of brown and is a satin finish and looks sultry and sexy on the lips and will definitely draw a boys attention towards your lips!!!!
