Review of MAC BRAVE Lipstick :
Sporting a satin finish from MAC, BRAVE is a really beautiful pinkish brown n*de colour. It has tendencies to show up a little different each time, under different lighting situations. Sometimes, it looks more pink on me, sometimes a little pale, or sometimes gravitating towards mauve. Despite being a satin finish, this lipstick does have very tiny micro shimmer particles, which impart a soft metallic sheen during initial period on application. Unlike it’s cousin TWIG from the same satin finish, it doesn’t show up fully opaque in one swipe, in fact you need to go on with a couple of swipes for a total opaque finish. Once applied on the lips it exhibits a soft metallic sheen on the lips (which I don’t like), but luckily that goes away after 5 to 10 mints after application.

I won’t really say , that it is an universally flattering colour, but anyway from the palest complexion to someone of NC25-30 would be able to sport it without any doubts, going down the line, our Indian dusky beauties would love to add a darker pink/mauve coloured lip liner first and then go on with brave over it. Without a lip liner BRAVE sure would appear washing out on deeper complexions. Even myself being a NC35 feel more comfortable when I use my MAC pink treat lip liner around it with a very light hand. The staying power of this is about 3 to 4 hours maximum, with light snacking in between. It is that perfect n*de for me and is a total pick me up. Steadily making it up to my favourites list. The next one I want is FAUX, which is a darn similar to this.
PROS and CONS of MAC BRAVE lipstick :
