Mac Fast Play Lipstick

Mac Fast Play Lipstick

Hello kittens! I was visiting the Mac store for what seemed like the n-th time!! I was hoping they had Crosswires in stock (which they still don’t). Oh well, I’ll try again soon. Anywho, I went in to buy bright lipsticks and came out with Fast Play instead. I have to say, it was better use of my money because this is a lipstick I wore everyday for quite a while.

Fast Play has the honour of falling into the “office appropriate” category!

This is an amplified creme lipstick which means it’s thick and creamy but feels very light weight on the lips. It’s also very moisturising, your lips don’t feel dry at all. I love the formula of this. It can overtime settle into lines but if you blot and apply, you can overcome this.

Fast Play is a bit of a mature kind of colour but it’s universally flattering and very wearable according to me. It’s a midtone pink. It’s very rosy and has a bit of brown in it. It’s very warm toned without being too bright. I think that makes it so easily wearable. Similar colours… actually Twig and Cosmo fall within the same realm. Cosmo is warmer I think and Twig is a tad bit more intense. Help me out here!

This lasted quite well for me. Around 5 hours it stayed on well including eating and drinking; after that it began fading. It also leaves a nice pinky stain at the end of the day.

This smells lovely, the signature Mac vanilla scent. It feels great when you apply this in the morning and feel like you’ve just had a dollop of vanilla ice cream! Fast Play is from the permanent range and comes in the usual black bullet like casing. You get about 3g of product for Rs. 990.

I wish Mac would start online shopping from their website in India already!

      I love my brights but I reach out for these kind of colours far more often. :)
