MAC Capricious Lipstick: Review & Swatches!

I've been on a total red lip kick lately, and one of my favorite reds this season is MAC Capricious lipstick. This is a perfectly deep berry shade that adds to almost any look without making it too bold.


This lipstick is fairly opaque, but not so much that you have to be careful about applying it. I even skip lip liner with it sometimes and just apply a light wash for a berry-kissed look. The lustre finish is nice and moisturizing, so I don't feel I always need a gloss over it either.


Here is another much-too-close lip swatch for you all! ;)


I think this is a great wearable shade for pretty much any skin tone, and if you like berry lips, I highly recommend it! If you would like to see some of my other favorite fall lipsticks, click here to check them out in one of my newest YouTube videos!

What is your favorite shade of lipstick to wear?

  1. This shade is so pretty! I love NYX's doll for this season and Rimmel's Drop of Sherry. I am on the hunt for a good, affordable raspberry color. If someone has a suggestion, please let me know!

  3. I am a big fan of mauve in general (warmer mauves rather than cooler tones). My favorite shade of that is MAC Syrup. You should get that one if you don't already have it, Allison. :)

  4. I think their formula are kinda like Chanel lipstick, seems like one Fleur has on a blogpost but that one is a lot more sheer than this one...but they look nice!

  5. So beautiful. Do you know of any drugstore lipsticks that are similar? There's no MAC near me, nor do I have the money for high-end lipsticks :/

  9. I've been looking for a similar shade for months, it looks so pretty! They don't sell MAC here in my country though, so do you know about any other brands that have similar shades?

  16. Off the top of my head I can't think of an exact dupe, but I know Revlon or CoverGirl has to have one. They have a ton of lipsticks!

  17. I don't know any dupes specifically, but I'm sure Revlon or CoverGirl has one, considering they have such a wide selection! :)
