…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

Finally after a long spell of doubt, about over a year, Crosswires ! …… you are mine! and you make me happy every time I see you πŸ™‚




On a lovely weekend evening, I visited MAC,Β  one and half years ago to buy my first MAC, and had Crosswires in my mind ….. I swatched it …alas, I look like a bling doll, oh so neon on me and I am all washed out ….With a heavy heart, I ruled it out and bought “Ruby Woo” instead, which was my first MAC πŸ™‚

Then I visited MAC so many times, afternoon, evening, after dusk …………..every time I tried Crosswires ,Β  no avail, crosswires washes me out, it is not for me perhaps …. I could not even curse the shade for it beingΒ  ugly, which was the worst thing πŸ™‚

Then two months back, I tried it on a morning at around 11 AM, I had only studio fix powder and kohl on my eyes, and I was surprised to realize that crosswires suits me, thanks to the SA who cemented it ….. Finally convinced …though still skeptical… it was mine last Monday .



IMG_2338Now coming to the agenda …..

The shade: A coral pink lipstick, which should suit fair to medium skin tones. I would advise you all to try it in the store before buying.

The Texture: It belongs to the cremesheen range of MAC lipsticks. It is not drying and moisturizing enough but tends to settle in the fine lines and the lips need to be well prepared before application.

The pigmentation: Very much pigmented though not like the mattes from MAC, goes opaque in two swipes when applied lightly.

The lasting: Lasts long upto five hours and then gradually fading to a stain.

My Take: Love it ! It should look good at all times during the day and makes a good weekend wear. The color would gel well with White, Navy Blue, Black, and floral outfits when paired with a coral blush. Also, it would complement heavy smokey eyes or simply kohl lined eyes alike. The only con is that it settles on the lines of the lips and the lips need to be well ex-foliated prior to its use.

I have only MAC Studio-Fix Powder, NYX “mocha” blush and Crosswires on my face…


Price: INR 990

Summary: Highly Recommended. If you are looking for a wearable coral, do check this out but do try it before buying. I would advise you to try it in the morning at the store.

Product Score: 4.5/5
