MAC CHILLI Lipstick : Review

Part of MAC Permanent line of lipsticks MAC CHILLI is described as Brownish orange – red with matte finish. I was waiting to get this for a long time but it was out of stock in all MAC stores in Bangalore. Few days back I tried this again and to my surprise … hubby and my close friend both complimented me for this and I knew by hook or crook I want this. A phone call to Noida MAC store and manager Priyanka confirmed that they have 5 pieces… what next? My brother sent it to me the very next day.

I have not tried matte finish from every brand but trust me if you get a colour you are looking for then MAC is the best for mattes. I have Russian Red , Ruby Woo , So Chaud , Lady Danger , Candy yum yum , Diva , Velvet Teddy , Taupe , Mehr and now this – CHLLI and no doubt will be stocking some more soon .

Chilli is warm brick red shade, looks very flattering but not overwhelming on my NC 40 skin tone and I see this shade working across skin tones. IT can be worm as a stain or full on power packed and still look beautiful .Beautiful colour for fall and all year round, I am completely and madly in love with this and would request you to try this if you can, no need to apply base or go heavy on eyes… the color is good enough to work effortlessly on our skin tone.

IT stays good for 4 – 5 hrs on my lips like most of the matte lipsticks and doesn’t dry my lips. I have no qualms with the texture; apart from RUBY WOO I find most of the matte lipsticks works fine on well moisturized and exfoliated lips.




And this is how the color looks on my lips :


I hope you find the reivew helpful ? Did you tried this shade from MAC ??

    Hi Rashmi,

    I love this shade too. Such a gorgeous fiery orange-red shade! It looked more red when I wore it without a lipliner a couple of times. After that I used Spice lip liner and it looked more orange and VERY bright. Did you review Mehr? I didn’t see the post if you did.

    It looks really nice on you & it is a very unique color blend of orange & red.. 🙂

    Btw Rashmi, would you know if Clinique sells the Almost Lipstick in Black Honey in India? I was thinking of getting it, but I’m not sure if they sell it here in India.. Thought I’d check if you had seen it at the counter.

      i called SA at my local clinique but she said the same thing .. she suggested that # 1 in chubby stick is likely similar to that 😀 😀
