MAC Matte Lipstick -Deeply Adored

Posted on Feb 18 2013 - 2:25pm by agnibanya

 Hey all,

Well finally, after a zillion phone calls to all MAC stores across Delhi/NCR and then waiting for a month or so, I did finally get hold of the  Limited Edition lipstick called Deeply Adored from M.A.C.’s Marilyn Monroe Collection (INR 1050 for 3 g ) and here’s my review for the same.

M.A.C.’s Marilyn Monroe Collection was released a while back and it originally had five shades (Deeply Adored, Charmed I’m Sure, Love Goddess, Scarlet Ibis and Pure Zen ).

Deeply Adored  is a brown toned red which is completely opaque in a single coat and has a matte finish. It looks darker in tube but comes out as a really pretty red that I would want to wear with my traditional outfits.The lipstick looks creamy when freshly applied but after a while it sets down to a beautiful true matte finish.Well, the mattes are, always, ,my preferred finish when I buy a MAC because they are creamy , luxurious, glide easily on lips without tugging or pulling and are comfortable to wear as compared to mattes by a lot of other brands.
The packaging of the lipsticks from the Marilyn Monroe Collection have an outer cover with a picture of Marilyn Monroe inside which is the regular MAC carton ( a little different because these are shiny as compared to regular MACs which are matte )and then inside that is the Lipstick. The lipstick bullet again has a picture a of Marilyn and is shiny (and I don’t like that much because its gets fingerprints all over!!!)

The lipstick wore on me for a good 5 hours (with light snack and sips of water)and fades evenly without any patchiness. It is lightly staining which is a little disappointing since I would have preferred it to be a bit more staining. One definitely needs to touch up in between.

Overall , a great shade for Indian Skin, and a lot of others , and I do see myself wearing it a  lot. If you like it, Go grab it asap because it was going OOS at a speed faster than the speed of light!!!!!!!!

Have a good day everyone!!!

    Even I felt the same…There was one Lipstick, I think Veronica Red that I liked, but nothing that I really loved..There's this year of the snake also available on the MAC us site….check Temptalia to see if you like anything…I'm more crazy about their permanent lipsticks though, especially Ruby Woo and Russian Red, none of which I've been able to get so far :(

    Thanks Jyo, Glad you like it…I'm sure it would have looked awesome on you too….but it went out of stock so fast..many weren't able to get it :(
