MAC Captive Lipstick Review: Hello, my lovelies :)Hope you had a wonderful festival of lights. Rains played spoilsport here in the city of joy on both Kali puja and Diwali so that meant most of my diyas went out and it was difficult for us to light up the night. Nevertheless, gorgeous outfits, yummy food, and luscious shades of lipstick offered compensation… anyway dressing up is always the highlight of any festival as far as I am concerned. This time I experimented with a brand new Mac lipstick …Mac Satin captive A 66. Let’s see how MAC Captive Satin Lipstick stood up to the test.

My Experience with MAC Captive Lipstick
The Mac lipsticks are packaged in a standard way and this one is no exception. The bullet MAC case with silver lettering and the all over the black body is distinctive of the unfailing quality and dependability of any Mac lipstick. The lipstick is small enough to slip into the tiniest of purses and you can carry it anywhere with you.
The color is a rich plum with cool-neutral undertones. Its medium pigmented, slightly shiny with a creamy smooth finish that feels delicious on the lips. One application is enough for day wear…you will get a nice rich color. If you have heavily pigmented lips…maybe two applications would be required. There is no need to apply lip balm the lipstick is fairly moisturized and really smooth….satiny smooth in fact.
I mostly stick to pinks, reds, and peaches so plum is a slight deviation for me. I really liked how the color was so versatile…it rarely clashes with anything.
Overall Performance of MAC Captive Satin Lipstick
The USP of this lipstick is its versatility…it will work as daywear as well as evening wear. You can pair it with almost all kinds of outfits and you can wear it to the boardroom as well as the ballroom. When you buy a really pricey lipstick like Mac you would want maximum utilization and this one scores high on that parameter.
I have been using this lipstick for just a week now but I can sense that this will become a wardrobe staple. Generally, when I try out a new lipstick I do it on a bare face to map the exact effect…I was quite satisfied with its look.
The lipstick stays close to 5 hours….it didn’t fade away even after a mini-meal. Overall, this is one of the most decent lipsticks I have come across.
Would I recommend?
Yes and I think I will repurchase this shade once this one is over. I would also recommend this lipstick to women who like to play it safe and do not like very aggressive or unusual colors. It will suit a variety of skin tones too… Heartily loved and recommended.
