MAC Lipstick Sandy B - Review & Swatches

MAC Sandy B

MAC Lipstick Sandy B (FROST)

MAC Sandy B is a semi opaque color. With its peachy pink pigment and sheer gold color it's look lovely when worn with spring colors like coral, peach, brown or any pinkish tint. I bought from the Forum Mall's MAC store in Kolkata.

Quantity: 3 gm
Price: 990 INR
Shelf Life: 2 years from the date of manufacture

As Sandy B has a very light peachy pink tint and golden shimmer in it so it some times does not go very well on Indian skin (wheaties brown/ olive) tone, Sandy B will only cover light pigmentation. So I would suggest to wear this color with same lip base or some lip tint. This Lip color will really go well with smoky eyes.

The texture of this lipstick is very smooth and moisturizing. As this color is semi sheer or semi opaque you need to use a lip base before you apply it on your lip.Else you can use this color as shimmer effect on your lips, it looks really nice if you use it with nude lip color.

MAC Sandy B lipstick will give you  light coverage but if you use it with base it will give medium coverage.

Pigmentation: It has light pigmentation.

Fragrance: Mild vanilla scent.

Color lasting power: It stays on lips at least for 2/3 hrs, which I think is good enough .

MAC Lipstick

All the MAC lipsticks comes in this kind of bullet shape and details of the brand and the shade name are given on the bottom of the lipstick. The packaging is very firm and tough so no chance of the lipstick cap to open up in your purse.

What I like about MAC Sandy B:
  • Nice gorgeous frosty color and pretty for spring and summer
  • Peachy pink tint will make you feel fresh
  • perfect peachy-nude color
  • Can be use as a glitter
  • Good color staying power
  • Nice scent
  • Travel friendly packaging
What I did not like about MAC Sandy B:
  • Gets little dry after few hours or application
  • Hate that golden glitter
  • Not a good option for highly pigmented lips
  • Gives low coverage
  • Felt little heavy on my lips

The color of this lipstick is very nice, it is among those lip color which will give you that extra happy feeling, but I did not like the golden glitters on it. Though it can be used as a light layer (as a highlighter) of hue on your basic lip shade like pink, peach or brown. If you apply it with some base lip color and lip gloss it will surely bring out that diva within you.
