MAC Mocha Lipstick is described as a peachy-yellow brown with a satin finish. It is one of the more natural lipstick shades I own. It definitely does not belong to the whole “nude” territory. I’m not someone who can pull off a nude lip everyday, I really need a little more color in my lips in order to look lively, if not that then at least more alive. This lipstick is also from the fabulous Mickey Contractor Collection, so if you weren’t able to pick up anything and still want a piece of Mickey, you can always grab a hold of MAC Mocha lipstick, because it is a permanent lipstick. Also, I find this to be a better suited brown on Indian/tan skin-tones. My mom is a skin-tone lighter than me and she has looked ghastly in possibly every brown lipstick she has tried. Mind you, she has been obsessed with brown lipstick ever since this stupid trend made its way into the mindsets of Indian women around early 90’s. I have had a special hatred for this trend because it made my beautiful mom into a lesser version of her. Dark brown lipstick weighed down her green eyes and made her look like Cruella or something. Mind you, she is anything but (most days, anyways). Indian women, listen to me, if you want to try brown lipstick, go for a shade that is not too dark and look for browns with a bit of pink or peach in them. It won’t play down the tan in your skin. I can also see this shade working as a good “nude” lipstick for darker skinned beauties. As far as wear is concerned, I get a good 3 or so hours from this, but it does dry my lips a bit. Satin finish isn’t the most moisturizing formula in the MAC range, but it makes up for that flaw by extending the longevity of the wear. Overall, I like this lipstick and will encourage you to look into MAC Mocha if you want a great everyday brown lipstick!
