M.A.C. Cremesheen Lipstick CROSSWIRES : Review/FOTD

Posted on Oct 24 2013 - 12:25pm by agnibanya

M.A.C Cremesheen lipstick Crosswires (INR 990/3g) , is described as Clean Pinky Orange and is from the Permanent line. It’s one of the more muted Corals that you would see around.
I love how fresh the lipstick looks even after hours of application. The lipstick is a dream to apply, it just glides across effortlessly on the lips and imparts a glossy shine that make your lips look fresh and juicy. It has an almost there Golden sheen to it which is only noticeable in natural light, and a little more prominent as the lipstick fades. I must mention that even though it’s a Cremesheen it’s decently pigmnted and gives medium coverage. .As it fades, it leaves a beautiful Coral Pink stain behind which I love more and usually just dab the lipstick on my lips for that beautiful tint. 


The lipstick has MAC’s signature vanilla fragrance and comes in the standard black bullet packaging. In my opinion, it’s a must have from the Cremesheen line, especially if you’re fond of Corals. I’ve seen this color look great across many skin tones so making it work for your skin tone is not a limiting factor. Looks best when paired with a dark eye makeup look.

    Hey Opal, in that case, I'd suggest pairing it up with dark eyes and a heavy blush to balance out…try and let me know :)

    Thanks Bee…Go for it, though I'm guessing it will look a little more pink on you, but it's definitely a great color..
    In the look on the left, I have shadows from the Sleek Sparkle 2 palette on my lids and on the other side, I'm wearing Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner in Deep Wine :)
