MAC Captive (Satin) lipstick Review and Swatches!

Remember I had bought 2 MAC lipsticks along with the Kryolan Blush palette?? I had reviewed one of them long back :MAC See Sheer which is one of the best shades in my vanity. U can read the review here : MAC See Sheer Lipstick Review

The other one MAC Captive is a totally different shade selection.

Comes in the standard MAC packaging and is priced at Rs.990/-It is a part of the permanent line.

Captive is a lovely plummy pink shade.Totally a wintery shade.I tend to stick to peachy/coral pinks as plums and berries look too deep on me. But Captive has the right mix of plum and pink that suits me for a change :D

The shade is from the Satin range meaning it sets to a semi matte finish and provides good color pay off without drying out the lips.The lipstick has a light creamy texture and imparts enough color to cover mild discoloration in a single swipe.It can be easily build to opaque finish without patchiness.

Being a Satin lipstick, it is not hydrating but does not dry out the lips either. Does not feather or 

It definitely does not settle into fine lines or accentuate dry lips.Also, it does not have the shine of Lustre finish lipsticks.

I just realized Captive would look awesome on dusky skin! 

The staying power is 3 hrs max with a lip balm underneath.


If u love plummy wintery shades, then look out for this next time u visit MAC store. I prefer wearing Captive with deep shades of kurtis and Colorbar Cosmic rose blush :)
