MAC Hibiscus lipstick - Photos , Review & Swatch

MAC Hibiscus lipstick was one of few items which i bought during my trips to Alafath last week.
Its a part of the  Limited edition Surf Baby Collection.MAC Surf Baby! Collection is a bright summery collection with island-themed packaging and colors.
It retails for rs 2100 because of the limited edition special packaging. Other regular line Mac lipsticks costs around rs 1990-200

If you are sucker for packaging then you will love this collection. The packaging of lipstick is uber pretty. It has stripes and pretty bright summery colors and a flower .

To be honest when i first the swatches on Temptalia, I loved it and I knew  I had to have this . But since it was LE product and we don't get LE items here so imagine my joy when i saw it at Alfatah ,Lahore . If you are interested in knowing  what other MAC LE items were available , please read my post [ here ]

Hibiscus is a brightened, medium-dark red-coral with soft gold shimmer. It has a cremesheen finish.  It’s like a richer, deep version of Viva Glam Cyndi. 

Its a cremesheen finish. The Mac cremesheens are well creamy(duh!), shiny and pigmented . Hibiscus is a semi opaque orange red coral with extremely soft gold shimmer. Mac Cremesheen lipsticks are creamy and provides full-coverage  .The shade is perfect for summer. For reference i am MAC NC30-35. I love how mac lipstick smells. MAC lipsticks are vanilla scented but they are taste-free which i love.
The shade was so hard to capture on camera when on swatched or worn on lips. 

Outdoors - natural Sunlight

Indoors - With Flash

If you have the can ,go to near mac counter and, give it a try i am sure you will love it as it is an amazing coral lipstick.
