M.A.C Satin Lipstick Brave~ Review and swatch

“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” ~ Coco Chanel 

*lol* Seriously! They are my ultimate obsession. If I could, I would love to own all the lipsticks in the world especially from  M.A.C.  So, today I shall be reviewing one that I own and it is the M.A.C Satin Lipstick in the shade Brave.

My take on the M.A.C Satin Lipstick Brave:  This lipcolor comes packed in the usual M.A.C black bullet and a sticker with the shade name placed right at the bottom. The packaging is simple and travel friendly. All of the mac lipsticks are similar so it becomes difficult to identify the lip color without having to go through the stickers.


Color: Brave is the perfect MLBB color for me. Brave is a warm pink-beige shade that would suit mostly all kinds of Indian skin tones.It appears darker in the photos but is a pinky brown.

Texture: Brave has a satin finish that goes smoothly over my lips. The formula as I would describe is semi matte, somewhere between a matte lipstick and glossy lipstick. It doesn’t create any kind of creasing which is ideal during dry season as matte tends to tug and settle into the fine lines. If you are somewhat who suffer from chapped lips yet want that velvety matte look, this finish is perfect for you.



Pigmentation: It goes opaque in a single swipe. One can always intensify the color as desired.

Staying power: It lasted for 5 to 6 hours on me with light snacking. There is no flakiness because of the semi matte finish.
