Mac Matte Chili Lipstick Review & Swatches by FS Fashionista

It is said that the girls who can wear red lipstick casually and pull it off are the most dangerous kinds of people; Do I mean Cleopatra! No way.. Well, if you ask girls, they will agree to disagree as the red is the only color that not only appear luscious inside but gives the sense of attraction and invitation if carried outside. Especially when a young woman carries the blood red color on the sexiest asset, she has.

Trust me when I say red lipstick, I am pretty sure that it is not a kiss-proof color. However, if you can walk outdoors with your red lippies, I must say that you can easily get along with sexed-up shades. Hey, wait! Is that really you or I am just smiling with my luscious red lips? ;)

Like I said I love Red lips, but not too glossy, especially when I am hitting the store for a super lustrous lip color. I do fancy for matte lipstick because their texture and shades work wonders for me. I clearly remember the last time when I was zealously finding MAC Chili lipsticks. When I found one, I started finding some reviews that can help me ponder the fantasies I had for mac chilli lipsticks ;) yeah! That is actually me..

However, sadly I found nothing helpful as someone was keeping me away from trying this stuff, so I decided to wear it on my lippies and write a review about this lovable red lipstick.

The texture of Mac Matte Chili lipstick, this red shade has really inspired me

Mac Chili is a non-drying matte lipstick, and it is not exactly the fire engine red, although there are different mac matte lipstick colors available in the market but the Chili Red is the best one I found.
The color that I chose was a blend of brown or burnt orange with pale red. I have also shared the product image that can help you guys compare the exceptional finish and remarkable color of this mac chili product.

Mac Matte Chili Swatches: Comparing Mac Chili lipstick with others

Another thing that I want to add here is the point regarding the dryness of matte finish lipsticks. Since I mostly own a collection of Mac lipsticks with non-drying matte but before using one of Mac products I was surrounded by countless negative reviews stating how dry and flaky these matte lipsticks can look. Though I do like spending or you can say “wasting” money on products that I fancy but still spending a few grand on products that I barely know was more like laying a bet for nothing.  However, the day I switched to Mac Chili matte lipstick, I knew I could add full-on glamour on my lippies without agonizing me its dry textures. These Matte lipsticks have non-dry finish with textures that are very much appealing and undeniable to carry for any girl of my age.
