Lately I have been liking the PAC cosmetics products. Although i bought few others before(will be reviewing them soon too), this would be my first review for this brand.
PAC, which is called as Professional Artist Cosmetics is an Indian brand which started recently and is tremendously growing in today’s beauty world. They have their exclusive store at Andheri, Mumbai where in you can purchase it directly. And also for others convenience their products are available online at their official website, Amazon and also in flipkart.
Just when I was thinking to invest in some good lip liners, these PAC Auto lip liners came to my rescue. I have never had any interest in lip liners before. But since I am lipstick addict and to make my lipstick stay all day all the time I had to lay a liner underneath. I have been following PAC cosmetics on all their social networking sites and i saw lot of reviews about their recent launches, but i haven’t seen any kind of feedback back on this particular liners. So I thought, bravehead let’s do it and here it is.
What PAC says: PAC auto lip liner is a unique formulation which is water proof and long lasting. A lip liner which is going to help your lipstick last longer than you expected . The vitamin E and C content in the lip liner is going to keep your lips nourished and moisturized at the same time . PAC auto lip liner can be used as a pure lipstick and also a lip liner.
PRICE: INR 1696 (for the whole set of 7 lip liners) or INR 285 individually.
AVAILABILITY: Available online at PAC website, Amazon and Flipkart as of now.
- WATERMELON – baby pink shade
- BLUSH – cotton candy shade (pink with blue purple undertones)
- RUBY – muted red shade
- GOLDEN FISH – orange shade (yes it is just the golden fish color)
- BLOOD – blood red shade
- BRICK – deeper red shade
- MAUVE – brown shade
PACKAGING: They come in a matte black box with the color code at the bottom and also there is a lip pattern on the front which says the shade name and also the lip pattern is colour coded. Back of the box is the list of ingredients. Inside is the PAC auto lip liner, which a color coded pencil with a black cap. The liner is a retractable pencil, so there is no worrying about sharpening issues and wastage of the product. I love retractable pencils just for that sake and also it is easy to carry around.
The lip liners are really creamy and soft in texture. It glides on the lips buttery smoothly. They are not at all patchy. But once they set, they feel drier on the lips. They tend to break if applied hard on to the lips/skin. They are extremely pigmented liners. They can be worn as normal lip liner under any lipstick or can be either used by itself, since it has good pigmentation. And the finish is totally a matte one. These stay on for a really long time. True. The lip liner alone stays on the lips for a good 5-6 hours(without any snacking). It could stay longer only if the liner could hold my inner rim of the lips. That’s where it starts to fade away, which i absolutely hate.
This lip liner is not your cup of tea if you have dry/chapped lips, as you will need to prep your lips before going for this liner. Exfoliation and moisturizing is a must for dry lips if you wanna rock this liner look. For my normal lips too, after 2-3 hours of application it makes my lips dry(when used by itself). And these lip liners smell like kids crayons(no!!).
If you are using the liner by itself, then these liners are totally transfer-proof and smudge proof. Yes, they do not transfer onto anything. And although not mentioned anywhere, they are water-proof also. Even if rubbed hard this liner doesn’t budge anywhere. It needs a good oil based remover to get this out of the lips.
- Affordably priced
- Soft buttery creamy texture
- Extremely pigmented
- Stays on for 6+hours (when used alone)
- Transfer-proof, water-proof and smudge-proof
- Retractable pencil ( no wastage issues- big yay for me)
- Fragrance (they smell like crayons- waxy kind of fragrance)
- PAC could have included some nudes and purple shades instead of giving three almost-the-same red shades.
I would highly recommend these liners. And the whole set of 7 lip liners is a really good deal rather than going for singles, as the price for 7 is just 1696 bucks. The best affordable lip liners in India with the best quality.
