M.A.C. Lip Pencil -Magenta : Review/Swatch/FOTD

Hey everyone,
Sometime, around the middle of last year, the bright lips bug had bitten me, and so I bought quite  a few Bold bright lip Colors that included Fuchsias and purples in various finishes. It was only after I started using those, did  I realize that I was short of a matching lip liner, and Oh! my! God! what a frustrating thing that can be. I ,somehow, was totally unable to find a matching purple-pink lip liner and then, upon a certain visit to a MAC store once, I chanced upon this lip liner. It looked so gorgeous on me, that I immediately wanted it, and as luck would have it, IT was OUT OF STOCK!!! Not only in one store , but across many other MACs that I had in my city. Anyway, long story cut short, it was finally my sister who picked up this lip liner for me from a different state, and that is how I got hold of this B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L lip liner.

Product Description:

A pencil designed for shaping, lining or filling in the lip. Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is

perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They are long-lasting and available in a wide selection of colours 

that each work well with many different lipstick shades.

MAC describes Magenta (INR 900/1045 g) as Vivid Pinkish Purple and this time the shade description is spot on. It is exactly how I would also have described the shade too. The color is fresh,vibrant and   cheerful..It's certainly a happy day color for my lips. Oh!! btw, its also very very S*XY...and naughty and flirty.....I can't think of a good thing that this color is not.....It is very easy to fall in love with this!!!!
Although, I do not find the Lip Liner to be necessarily dry, it is not exactly creamy either. On lips that are exfoliated and well moisturized  it glides on easily, whereas on dry lips it may sort of tug. The finish is like a dry matte lipstick, and it's insanely pigmented, just a couple of strokes give intense color that survives eating, drinking, even brushing your stays on the lips like Forever..yea, FOREVER......And I love this lip liner for this reason the most.

MAC lip liners are hardly disappointing and this one is no exception. In fact  for the (unique) shade and the lasting ability, I would always purchase and repurchase this particular lip liner. Moreover, it's the near perfect match for my Heroine lipstick as well.

If you like Bold and Bright lip colors, this can easily be your next pick. Skip, if you DO NOT want attention grabbing lip colors, because this my lady, will have everyone looking at you !! ;)

Highly recommended!!!

Have a great day everyone!!


  1. Omg AB.... this looks so sexy on you. Totally hot. Main bhi loongi. Even I love mac liners.

    1. Thanks Bee...You must get this..Its such a unique shade and so bright and lovely...I'm always going to repurchase :)

  2. very pretty...
    what is your opinion on this color for dark skin tone.. something like mine..

    1. Thanks Kin, I don't know your exact skin tone so I can't really comment about that..
      However, you may want to try it at a MAC store before buying to know exactly whether you'd be able to pull it off or not...Ultimately ,it all boils down to your own comfort level with bright colors :)

    2. Hey agni .. this is Kiran Thorat.. :-) kin is just a short name...

    3. Ohhhh..Okay...Still I'd say you try once at a store....Don't worry , they sanitize the lip pencil before trying it on you so its pretty hygienic :))

    4. I must give a try.. but now I am loving the Rimmel shocking pink ;-)..

  3. Loved it on you Agni :) I also saw it swatched on Rashmi's blog, and true, its a must have !

    1. Thanks Tanmayee..I'm 100% sure that you will like it too :)
