MAC ‘Del Rio’ Lipstick Review – Morifemme


 MAC’s lipsticks are a few of my favourite! I personal a few them from their matte line, and I’ve tried a few of their cremesheens. Nonetheless, my favourite components needs to be their satin end. MAC’s satin lipsticks are semi-matte, in order that they aren’t as drying as fully matte ones, however they nonetheless supply the identical quantity of pigmentation.

Del Rio is described as a “muted plum brown” on MAC’s web site. I might’ve by no means picked it up had the salesperson not advisable it. I had requested for a impartial on a regular basis lipstick, one thing that regarded like my lips however higher. I’ve to say that the salesperson delivered!

Within the tube, Del Rio appears somewhat darkish to be “my lips however higher”.
It appears tremendous red-toned right here. I feel it appears a lot cooler toned in individual.


My pure lip colour for reference

If I dab a skinny layer on my lips, I get a pleasant pink-brown tone that appears pure.

A lightweight software, executed in dabbing motions fairly than sweeping.

You get full pigmentation with only one layer. It has a considerably purple undertone, not a lot of the “plum” that MAC describes it as. I don’t know if it’s simply me, however after I consider plum, I consider a extra purple primarily based colour. The purple undertone appears extra pronounced on lighter pores and skin tones.

One barely messy layer of Del Rio. You might be neater than I’m lol.

The colour is impartial sufficient to go together with quite a lot of eye appears, particularly when worn as a lightweight tint. It additionally wears properly, so I don’t find yourself with humorous wanting lipstick after a dinner out with buddies. I discover that it simply lasts by means of four or 5 hours, and typically much more if I’m not consistently wiping at my lips throughout meals.

The lipstick might be made to look extra matte with a lip liner beneath, or it may be worn shiny. I like sporting it shiny, however the lipstick bleeds somewhat if I’m overzealous with lip balm. This normally doesn’t trouble me as a result of it bleeds evenly and appears like I deliberately over lined my lips.

I’d be mendacity if I stated that this isn’t the primary product I attain for each day. I’ve been utilizing it for a couple of years now, and it’s undoubtedly my favourite lipstick!

Score: 5/5 for longevity, snug components, and colour.
