MAC So Chaud - Review, Photos, Swatches

Vintage, Retro, Pin-Up Girl, Sexy; these are my personal description of MAC So Chaud.
This is my first matte lipstick from MAC, and just like my other MAC lipsticks, this did not disappoint. :)

MAC So Chaud is in a matte formula, which I prefer especially for bright and unconventional lip colors.
If MAC Lady Danger is a bright red-orange shade, So Chaud is a medium tone orange-red shade. It's definitely not as bright as MAC Morange or MAC Neon Orange.

PROS: Great formula (matte), opaque, pigmented, and long wearing. The color is not as common as the usual reds and oranges.
CONS: Being a high-end product, it is a bit pricey.

VERDICT: 5 out of 5 CHILIS! Yes, it is pricey. But I personally think it's worth every peso. Also, it's not available in all MAC Counters.

Where To Buy:

1000php, MAC Counters

  1. I LIKE IT! :D I am seriously wanting these two MAC coral shades... See Sheer and Crosswires. XD Dunno which one to get (and WHERE TO GET huhuhu)

  2. See Sheer is available in MAC Counters here :) I remember swatching that in their Trinoma branch :)

    I'm not really a fan of lustre and cremesheen finishes, but their colors are gorgeous. I will try to borrow my sister's Crosswires for a review if you want. :)
