MAC Crosswires and MAC Brave Red lipstick

The world of makeup is incomplete without MAC cosmetics. Although I do not blink an eye every time they launch a collection but passing by a MAC store does make me exclaim “Oh look, that’s a MAC store, what collection is on these days”.

Crosswires and Brave Red are cremesheen lipsticks of MAC permanent range. Cremesheen lipsticks glide easily on healthy lips and are quite hydrating. The color coverage is medium, not completely opaque in one shot and the texture is creamy. MAC lipsticks are scented.

Crosswires is a coral which looks pinker on lips. I find it suitable for spring and summer season when we wear light fabrics and bright colors in daytime. This shade settles on fine lines but is a wearable coral by all skin tones.

Brave Red is a scarlet red and imparts more opaque color than Crosswires. It completely justifies the cremesheen finish. Due to its medium intensity, it is an everyday red. For office you swipe directly on lips and then diffuse the color with finger. For the evening party you wear it full on. Somehow, this red is rarely discussed on blogs. While Crosswires is famous, Brave Red is underrated. Brave Red was my first MAC purchase and my first lipstick. A good memory.

Recommendation - Try Crosswires on a sunny day with white outfit. Brave Red is a great holiday color, grab it this winter for those endless parties.
