MAC Captive Lipstick - FOTD

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are having a great week so far.

MAC Captive, as the company very rightly describes it ‘pinkish-plum’, is a beautiful plum/ mauvish shade. It comes in satin finish and has an excellent colour pay-off, just one swipe and you are done. It stays good for 6-7 hours and then starts fading leaving stained lips, which according to me is excellent. 

It’s is a bright shade but very wearable, even during the day. You can add a clear gloss for daytime and a mauve or purple gloss for more fun during evenings/ nights. Apart from neutrals, it can  also be worn with e/s like greens & purples. For this post, I am wearing it with neutral eyes.

  1. wow !! this is a tone down version of the Candy yum yum.is it?

  2. @ Anamika: I don't think so. Candy Yumm Yumm seem to more of a neon pink, whereas this one is more mauvish berry pink.

  3. The shade is so gorgeous! It seems like a toned down mauvish version of 'Craving'. Looks really nice on you. And I love your mascara..its opening up the eyes beautifully!

  4. Corallista: Thanks so much :). I don't have Craving, so can't really say.
