MAC Party Parrot Lipstick (Rs 990 for 3 gm.) can be purchased from MAC storesShade – MAC Party Parrot is a matte finish shade. It is a neon coral with pink tones. The shade is very electric and vibrant. It is sans any shimmer or sheen.
Packaging - The packaging is similar to regular MAC lipsticks having a matte black bullet with shade name and finish provided at the bottom. However, this is not a shade that can be worn by those who like neutral, soft shades as it looks loud on lips.Texture & Formula - The texture of MAC Party Parrot is smooth and very creamy. It glides on easily on lips. There is no such feeling of the shade being matte but it is not hydrating and moisturising so it can accentuate flaky lips and it does settle in the lip lines.It is light weight and feels comfortable on lips.The lipstick settles to a semi-matte finish. Party Parrot can be a bit drying for those having dry lips but a layer of lip balm underneath will help. It has the same vanilla fragrance reminiscent to all MAC lip products.
Pigmentation - MAC Party Parrot is highly pigmented and one swipe imparts full coverage to lips. It is a great shade for those having pigmented lips. One way to reduce the neon effect is to apply the shade and blot it with tissue paper. The intensity remains the same but the brightness/neon effect lessens.
MAC Party Parrot is a stunning neon coral pink shade that is a great statement lip colour. I love the finish, texture and the formula. It is creamy and comfortable on lips. The shade will suit all skin tones. It comes out differently on everyone. On some, the shade looks more coral and on some, it looks pinker. It is a very unique and fun shade.
I prefer to keep my rest of the makeup very simple when I am wearing this as it can become OTT. However, this is not a shade that anyone can pull off easily as it can be too bright for those who are used to softer lip shades. Also, it tends to accentuate dry flaky lips and settles in the lip lines so the lips need to be prepared properly prior its application.
