All the MAC lipsticks have similar packaging. They come in regular black tube. The tube has MAC embedded on the cap. The shade name and number are mentioned at the base of the lipstick. Packaging wise the lipsticks are quite easy. You just need to twist the cap to get the product out. And unlike some drugstore brands you can twist the upper case of lipstick to its maximum without any fear of breaking the bullet. But truly speaking i find MAC lipstick packaging quite boring. But it’s MAC so you can’t complain.

Texture :

This lipstick is excellent in terms of texture. This lipstick falls in the category of amplified. MAC amplified lipsticks have extra smoothness in their texture. They are incredibly light and feel almost weightless on lips. The amplified texture of these lipsticks sets the lipstick in a smooth soft finish. This lipstick glides on lips quite smoothly. It can be applied without any tugging or uneasiness on lips.

 My Experience with MAC Crosswire Lipstick

Coming to the shade amplified crosswire is a neon pink shade. I also like to call it “Dirty Pink”. It such a pink which doesn’t flatter Indian skin tones. Whitish skin tones can only wear this shade comfortably. Even fair or medium skin tones will find this colour wash out their face completely. Being one of the amplified lipsticks it delivers moisture and smoothness to lips. This lipstick eliminates the usage of balm underneath lipstick. The lipstick is superbly pigmented similar to other MAC lipsticks. This particular shade delivers true color on first swipe only. Of course you can go for multiple swipes to build up the colour.

The lipstick stays for quite a good period of time. it stays for 6-8 hours easily. The lipstick survives heavier meals and drinks too leaving behind a strong hint of colour.

Finally, the lipstick burns hole in the pocket similar to other MAC products. But the USP of MAC products is that they last for quite a good period of time. And ladies you don’t complain with MAC.
