MAC Apres Chic Lipstick Review + 100K :)



-|:Youtube :|: Facebook :|: Twitter :|: PrettyDNA :|: Vlog :|: FourSquare :|: Instagram :|Bloglovin :|-


I usually don't even look at MAC collections.. they have too many pretty things with an endless line of items that need to be bought collection after collection.  One would assume that I'd be tired of collecting lipsticks, but lipsticks are still my weakest spot.   I was going through some swatches on the Internet and fell in love with the Spring 2013 Apres Chic collection look.

It looks rather unoriginal compared to other collections, but I guess I really like the rusty look on the eyes and the bold lips.

After calling a couple of places, I managed to get my hands on the Apres Chic lipstick.  I wanted to get Haute Altitude also, but I guess that one sold out faster than the Apres Chic.
So, here's my review of the lipstick. :)



At first sight, it's just another muted red lipstick.
True, it does look awfully bland and unoriginal in the tube, but there's something special about this lipstick that I really like.


In the tube, the color is a bit like dark tomato.
When swiped on the hand, it (surprisingly) swatches sheer. The hand swatch above is the lipstick swatched 3 times on the back of my hand. It has the glossy touch to the lipstick that will give your lips a bright and healthy look.

However, when applied on the lips, it comes off as a really creamy and opaque color.

The finishing is cremesheen (my favorite!), so there's no surprise that the application is this thick and creamy.  The color comes off exactly like that of the tube.  I don't think the color is as bold as the picture of the collection, but it's by no means a color that will go unnoticed.

I snapped a picture (excuse the PJs and haggard look..) of how it looks on the whole face. It's not a "super red" color, but it's not far from bold. Like I said, the color could be best described as "dark tomato".


As I was swatching, I thought the color was a bit similar to Viva Glam Cyndi, so I started pulling out some red MACs that could be comparable. { Funny how I compared the exact same colors to viva glam cyndi back then, haha }


When swatched, Lady bug is the closest to Apres Chic.
(from Left to Right : Crazeee, ladybug, apres chic, viva glam cyndi and cross wires).
Top swatch is in indoor lightings and the lower one is with flash on.
As you can see, Cyndi contains more tomato red and crazeee is a bit more yellow because of the glitters. I think the closet is MAC's ladybug, which is also a gorgeous bright red.

Anyway,
For those that are seeking a fun, wearable red - this will do. But if you're looking for something special, I think Apres Chic falls a bit short.  Personally, I like this color because it isn't an intimidating color.  I can throw this in my purse and pull it out when appropriate.


Oh, before I go! :)
I wanted to thank every one of you guys that are subscribed to my youtube channel.
I reached 100k today (yay!) and I was lucky, and unemployed, enough to capture the moment when it happened. ^___^*

Thank you guys so much for the support, and I'm going to make a video addressing this too. ^0^*
I love you guys - group hug*
