Lipstick Love : The under hyped shade : MAC Hot Tahiti Review and Swatches

I love berries. Inside my tummy not on my mouth. And Hot Tahiti luks scary and berry on the tube. But one swipe and I was sold. 

It comes in the standard MAC packaging and cost me 1190 bucks (now it will cost u 1450 evil MAC boooo!!) 

MAC describes it as a soft reddish coral. I dont find anything remotely coral in the shade. In the hand swatches, it looks a soft reddish berry with bits of brown thrown in. But on me, it pulls a soft berry pink. Not a trace of red :( Not saying I am unhappy. The berry pink looks polished but I would have liked a hint of red. Nevertheless, it is a gorgeous shade.

It is of Glaze finish but devoid of shimmers. Has a sheer glossy finish that can be built up to medium coverage. 

Application is easy and even. The lipstick feels comfortable but cannot be tagged as hydrating. Nice part is I can use this without a lip balm even in the winters. 

Staying power is approximately 2 hours without eating and drinking with 2 swipes. I cannot go beyond 2 hours without feeding my ever hungry stomach ;)

Indirect Sunlight

Direct Sunlight

Indoor Light

Indian skin tones can rock this shade totally :) 

Overall thoughts : A very pretty shade that can look red or berry based on ur skin color and tone. The glossy finish of this lipstick is worth a try at the store.

 So what do you think of Hot Tahiti ?? Love or Hate ??

The Comeback Post Or Not : The Everyday Staples for the Sensible Me

Sensible me. Cuz I haven't splurged on every random collection popped out by brands ;)

Moving on to the everyday staples that I literally can't live without  :

Lipsticks : Starting with these as I love my colors ;)

Dreaming Dahlia : I and See Sheer. We were are in love. But then I got a crush albeit celebrity one on dreaming dahlia. Celebrity crush as this was the last piece in the MAC store and it belonged to Deepika (The queen of Jhumkas). DD looks shamelessly bold in the tube but transforms to a sheer glossy reddish orange sheen on the lips. It helps that it is of lustre finish. If u hadn't guessed it already, yea I flicked it from her :D Thank u Deeps <3

Hot Tahiti : Scary looking ? yes. but goes a sheer berry red on the lips that can be built up easily.

Mehr : Enough has been written about this. A dirty blue based pink that looks almost pastel on me.

Time for the basics.

Garnier BB Cream : I go through tubes of this amazing product. It seems to blur the imperfections. Must have totally.

Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Cream : Own this in 2 shades courtesy my persistent dark circles. I pulled an all nighter and wore this in the morning. Nada dark circles. Will review them soon.

Lakme Absolute Kohl : Should repurchase this ASAP. Now once u know how smooth a Ferrari is u wouldn't go back to maruti 800 would u. It is the same with this kajal. Intensely black, smooth, waterproof, smudge proof (mostly) and lasts long.

L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara : I was gaga over the Lakme Eyeconic mascara till I got this. Worth the moolah as I love the formula and the fanned out effect it gives.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium (?) : Not sure about the shade I own. A much loved product to set my concealer(s).

Seems like a lot of stuff but takes 10-15 minutes max to do my face.

I also keep the L'oreal Color Le Riche gloss in Violet Attitude handy. Really Moisturizing and smells just amazing :)

Till the Next Post
