MAC Lipstick in Antique Velvet Review + Swatch
Here's a review on MAC Lipstick in Antique Velvet.
FROM: MAC, Robinsons Magnolia
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in all MAC counters nationwide
The moment I saw this shade from MAC's Matte Lip Collection, I knew in my heart that we had to be together; alas, it was always out of stock locally and even in MAC's official website! I was about to give up on my search for this lovely shade, but the universe has a funny way of giving you your happy ending: My friends and I had a Christmas Party and we held a Secret Santa game; before the party, we each created a list of our top 5 preferred gifts for Christmas and randomly picked our beneficiary (without telling each other who we picked); one of my preferred gifts is MAC Antique Velvet; I wasn't really expecting I'd get that because I knew that it was such an elusive shade and everybody wanted it, but I thought to myself "Hey, who knows?". On the day of the party, the person who picked me got me....MAC ANTIQUE VELVET! I jumped from my seat when I learned what my secret Santa's gift was! According to my friend, she found a lone stock at MAC Robinsons Magnolia; it was her lucky day and so was I; my Christmas got happier because of this! :D
So there goes my Antique Velvet story!
I digress; this shade is one of MAC's best vamp shades in my opinion and look no further if you want a vampy Brown that's very stylishly sexy and classy!
MAC LIPSTICK IN ANTIQUE VELVET LIPSTICK IN DETAIL
This lipstick was released in last year's Matte Lip Collection; Antique Velvet is a permanent shade.
Antique Velvet is described by MAC Cosmetics as an 'intense brown'; can't argue with that!
MAC LIPSTICK IN ANTIQUE VELVET LIPSTICK IN ACTION
To add to the 'Intense Brown' color description, Antique Velvet, to me, is a dark brown with a slight reddish undertone.
It's been a while since I bought a MAC lipstick and I don't know what their new formulas are nowadays, but to be truthful, this isn't the iconic MAC matte I first experienced with the brand: it's a bit moisturizing and doesn't completely set into a matte finish, but rather semi-matte. I'd rather have MAC's old matte finish, but I think I'll be fine with this one because it's a bit moisturizing and solves my eternal problem with MAC's lipsticks, which is dryness.
I digress, regardless of its finish, I still love, love, love this lipstick because it's the perfect vampy Brown for me!
