MAC Satin Lipstick Amorous : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

MAC lipsticks have never failed me and I have a huge list of lipstick shades that I want to buy one day. I also wanted to try their different finishes like satin, lustre, amplified, matte and so on. Honestly, Amorous was never on my list and I was not too impressed with the shade in the bullet or even in the swatches I saw online. It was Pree who asked me to try it once. I didn't hesitate and tried it immediately. That is the little story behind this purchase, oops no gift ;)



Description

MAC describes the shade as 'Lovestruck Cranberry' and the finish is 'Satin'. To explain it better the color looks like a dark plum shade with brown tones to it and the finish is neither matte nor creamy but somewhere in between. I quite like the formula of these 'Satin' lipsticks. I need a couple of swipes to cover my pigmented lips and it stays for 3-4 hours on me. The shade would suit most Indian skin tones and would make a pretty everyday wear plum shade on darker skin tones. If you love plums then you should try this shade now. This looks like a dull rose plum on my lips which looks much brighter in the bullet and swatches.



Likes
  • I really like the 'Satin' finish.
  • The shade will suit almost all skin tones.
  • Stays for good 4 hours on my lips.
  • Does not settle in fine lines.
  • Will look like a subtle plum on darker skin tones.
  • Easily available [usually in stock here in Chennai !!]

Dislikes
  • It becomes a little dry after some time but nothing major, we can sort it out by using a lip balm.



Price

The price of MAC Satin Lipstick Amorous is Rs.990 for 3 g.

Verdict

As mentioned already if you are a plum lover or looking for the perfect plum for your lips then give this a try. This shade would suit most Indian skin tones and would look gorgeous on darker skin tones. This is my to-go plum lipstick these days. Don't go with the color in the bullet like I did, do try it on your lips to know how pretty the shade is. The Satin finish is good too, does dry a bit but still my dry lips loves this one as the dryness caused is very minimal.
