MAC is a brand which I adore and love to use it on daily basis or for parties and functions. Their products are quite expensive but fulfills our expectations making every penny worth. I am crazy about lipsticks I love collecting them in different shades. As I have dry and chapped lips, I go for lipsticks that are not completely matte but give a velvet finish, making my lips hydrated. MAC Lustre Lipstick comes in a black bullet type case. The body is sturdy and contains a silver inner part which contains the product. The lipstick comes up by twisting the lower part of the case. It closes tightly and is travel friendly. It is quite expensive for 3g of the product. The application process is very simple like any other lipstick. It is always better to exfoliate your lips before applying lipstick, if you a chapped lips like mine. Now just swipe the lipstick across your lips. It has a creamy texture and glides gently on your lips. It has a shimmery finish which is not completely matte. It keeps your lips moisturized, so there won't be any necessary to moisturize your lips before applying lipstick. It suits all types of skin. MAC Lustre Lipstick is available in 23 shades which makes it suit most of the skin tones. I like the shade touch. It is a peach shade with brown undertone. It suits my yellow skin undertone. As the shade is light and the product makes lips moisturized, one can wear to to office and work. It has a sheer to medium coverage and it is hard to get a bold color of the shade even if you swipe it twice or thrice. The staying power of the MAC Lustre Lipstick is low of 2-3 hours. It stains the cup and glasses while you have a drink. I doesn't survive meals. I hope MAC should improve on their transfer proof quality for the price. Otherwise it is a good one.

This lipstick is pretty good. And the shade which I purchased was Nudes Fresh Brew. The packaging is the same bullet shaped packaging. Quite simple and travel-friendly. In its box, every ingredient is mentioned. Although it is good for Indian skin tones, will be more suitable for fair complexion. If we talk about its pricing, it was way too costly for me. As it has cost me nearly 1300/- and the quantity is 3gm. But somehow, I managed to buy it. Anyways, this particular shade goes well even during the summers too. It can be worn during office hours and even when you are not willing to apply bright make-up on your face. The staying power is not that much great, as it did not survive heavy meals, like dinner or lunch. It has to be re-applied again to give an even look. Moreover, I did not feel that this lipstick gives me some sort of dry feeling on my lips. If you apply this on winters, the moisturization level will suit your lips. It has a creamy texture and the look is a bit glossy. It gives out a very nice fragrance which is similar to vanilla. It gives a good look to my lips, and I love wearing it during the daytime. Pigmentation is not that great at it has got moisturization in it. If I conclude, then I would say that yes you can try it one as it has a good range of shades which is perfect for Indian skin tones, but I did realize anything great about it. It is not transfer-proof, nor smudge-proof. So one can think of some other better option to choose as in this price range, there are lots of options available. Therefore, I will not recommend it to any of my friends.

I cannot get enough of it!

Color bleeds

Short staying power


MAC Lustre Lipstick needs no introduction. I feel like every girl has either heard of it or is owning one. I, like most of you, love MAC lipsticks. My skin tone is wheatish brown. So, I tried seven shades named See Sheer, Cockney, MidiMauve, Hug me, Giddy, Lustering and Patisserie in MAC Lustre Lipstick range till now. And just recently I got myself Spice It Up.

This lipstick comes in a black bullet case and a silver inner upper body. The packaging is functional and travel-friendly. I like the quality of the packaging. I have dropped it so many times, but it never broke.

These lipsticks are creamy with a golden sheen and a glossy finish. It is very lightweight and gives just the right amount of moisture. These lipsticks reduce the extra work of moisturizing the lips with a lip balm underneath. And also, I never have to worry about it sitting on my lip’s fine lines.

MAC Lustre Lipsticks give a sheer to buildable coverage. With all the colors I own, I never had a “not enough” issue. But I wanted a bold color, so I got Spice It Up. Even if it is a bold color, I use it any time of the day. During the day, I just swipe it on once. But during night out or something, I put three layers and I get the lipstick’s true shade. So, the thing I adore the most about this Lustre lipstick is that I can wear it as a sheer lipstick as well as full coverage lipstick.

But, owing to its creamy texture, it does bleed on my lips. And the staying power is just 2-3 hours. I wish it did not come with these problems, that would have made these lipsticks perfect. Regardless, I still love this lipstick for the shades and how it works on me. I’ll probably end up with the all the shades (someone HELP ME with this obsession!)

Works like Lip balm.

PROS

Sheer finish

Buildable coverage

Great moisturization

Suitable for all skin tones

CONS

Creamy texture

Expensive

Low staying power

Low pigmentation


I have been wearing Flamingo which is a light coral shade. I have dark skin, but this shade suits me well. My lips are dry, so the moisturization MAC Lustre Lipstick provides is perfect.
This lipstick has a creamy texture which gives a luster finish. Flamingo is sheer, but I can build it up to complete coverage. I prefer sheer, so I don’t build it up most of the time. I feel like this shade will suit all skin tones. The staying power is very less. Almost like a lip balm. So I use this lipstick more like a lip balm rather than a lipstick. I will not be repurchasing it again because I want a lipstick to work as a lipstick. Though I like the moisture it gives me, I paid a lot for it to work just like a lip gloss.

Too basic for its price!
2.8/5

PROS

Moisturizes lips

Ideal for dry lips

CONS

Expensive

Too sheer


As compared to other MAC products, I feel like this luster lipstick is too basic. It does not give the exact shade. For me it is very sheer, even when I build it up, I don’t get the tint I prefer. I do have to give a shout out to its moisture though. For people with dry lips, it will be good, especially during the winter season. I am not pleased with this collection so I won’t be repurchasing it.

Go-to lipstick which gives a natural finish.

Pretty Please is my all time go-to lipstick! I’m on my third case, and I use it every day. It is a pale pink shade which goes well on my fair skin. On my skin it almost looks like I have not worn anything, I really like the natural tint. The only downfall according to me is it does not last for long, so I have to reapply it every once in a while.
