I recently visited PAC cosmetics shop which is in Andheri West Mumbai and got some amazing stuff. From the entire haul their lip products where my the most favorite hence I decided to review them first.
PRICE: 550 INR (Lip Gloss) & 395 INR (Lipstick) QTY: 6.5 ml (lipgloss) 3.8 gms (lipstick)
AVAILABILITY: PAC cosmetics shop Andheri West Mumbai, Amazon, Nyaka
PAC had launched these beautiful matte lip-glosses few months back, but because it’s me and I’m lazy I got on this bandwagon bit late. I went to get the previous once, when the SA explained that they have come up with new packaging called V/2.0. How cool is that.. Anyways to know how these babies turned out please keep reading.

PAC Matte Lipstick tube is made of jet black metal and has magnetic looking system which works great and is quite strong. Same as gloss shade number is written on bottom. The packaging is very classy and chick
Overall the packaging is quite sturdy and travel friendly.
PAC Retro Matte lipgloss: It has beautiful quick drying formula. The consistency is just right, its neither too liquidly nor too creamy just perfect. It glides beautifully on the lips and applies evenly in one go. Doe shaped applicator helps in reaching the edges perfectly giving crisp lines. Only issue is its bit drying and hence may settle in fine lines, which can be easily overcome by using good lip-balm or lip primer beneath.
PAC Matte Lipstick: they have beautiful creamy texture to it and glide on smoothly without tugging the lips. The formula is not completely matte but sort of creamy semi matte. It doesn’t dry out the lips and feels quite comfortable on lips.
PAC Retro Matte Lipgloss: It has amazing staying time. Once they set they do not budge whatsoever. You will require heavy duty oil based makeup remover to get rid of these babies. They are absolutely smudge and transfer proof and they do not rumble or crease.
PAC Matte Lipstick: These have good staying power. They can survive some munching and light snacking. It starts fading after 5 hrs. but fades evenly and leaves slight tint behind. It dose transfer a bit but do not bleed or settle in fine lines.
PAC Retro Matte Lipgloss: I got 2 shades from this range.
No. 11: It is mauve pink and looks absolutely stunning. It is quite great for everyday use.
No 33: It is bright Coral pink which looks great for evening wear. Somehow this gives more velvety texture to lips as compared to No.11
Both the shade will look good for all the Indian skin tones, but in my personal humble opinion no. 11 will suit fair to medium skin better than darker toned beauties.
PAC Matte Lipstick: Again I picked up 2 shades from this range
No.21: Nude pink shades which I absolutely adore. It’s my MLBB shade. It looks pinker in the pic but on lips it’s the most perfect nude.
No. 24: It is very wearable maroon shade with nude undertone. On lips it’s very Kylie Jenner shade and looks perfect for summers.
Shade 21 will suit fairer shades but 24 is universal shade that will look good on all skin tones.
PAC Retro Matte Lipgloss: Single swipe is sufficient to give opaque finish, still if you want one can layer it on it doesn’t get cakey. 2 swipes might be required for pigmented lips.
PAC Matte Lipstick: It takes 1-2 swipes for opaque overage. Lip gives very smooth and even finish. Even if you layer it on it doesn’t look patchy or cakey.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: I think these are beautiful products and PAC has done amazing job with them. Pls do try their lip products they are absolutely amazing and they have huge collection of shades which means you will definitely find the most find a perfect color that looking for
RATING: 4.5/5 (PAC Retro Matte Lipgloss) 4/5 (PAC Lipstick)
RECOMMENDATION: in my humble opinion both the products are a must buy and absolutely required in every makeup kitty.
