My Experience with Mac Satin lipstick Rouge A Levres captive Shade:
The Mac Captive comes in a black bullet case with the famous vanilla smell. The shade is usually ideal for
medium to dusky skin tone. And it is ideal shade for winter. But I personally feel this shade will suit to
fair skin tone also if you are enough confident and love to carry a pinkish plum shade then this shade is
for you.

Now my take:-
I was in search of plum shade as now a day I am in a phase of experimenting bright colors. I suddenly
fallen in love for some shades that I never used before, among them plum was in my list. It is a lovely
bright shade. For me wearable for night is best option along with neutrals mostly I guess.
Please don’t judge my opinion about makeup I may be wrong as I just experience the shade with neutrals so
suggesting you too. And in daytime it look much darker on my skin tone which although I love it. When
I first saw Mac captive in store I feel that this shade is very dark for my skin tone but when the SA girl
applied it on my lips I couldn't resist myself to brought it but unluckily it was out of stock on that day.
but recently I brought it in a blog sale and I am feeling myself very lucky to get it in almost new condition
in less price than usual. As the sturdy bullet of MAC always made a hole in your pocket when you buy it.

I think the medium to dusky skin tone girls can do the real justification of this shade but if you are fair
with warm tones then this might suit you well like it did upon me and add a unusual but lovely change in
my makeup J  The staying power is 4-5 hours, which I wish can be little more. The lipstick transfers a bit
to the cups and glass but leave a lovely pinkish tint on lips which I personally don’t like as I always try to
find out an excuse to reapply lipstick after meals.

My Likes with Mac Satin lipstick Rouge A Levres captive Shade: 
• Lovely and wearable shade.
• This shade will suit most of the skin tones.
• Satin finish so non-drying of lips.
• Keeps your lip moistens.
• Gives full coverage, so good for pigmented lips.
• Definitely the vanilla smell added +1 to this lipstick.

My Dislikes with Mac Satin lipstick Rouge A Levres captive Shade:
• Being pricey I expected the staying power should be little more.
• Transfers easily to cups and glass.

Final Verdict:
Mac captive is a nice creamy shade that I think will suit most of the skin tones girls ,and If you love to
wear plum shade then Mac captive is the ideal one to choose.
