There are a few MAC shades which, most often are out of stock. Hot Tahiti is one such shade from MAC. It took me a long time to get my hands on this beautiful shade.
Hot Tahiti is a part of their permanent shade range and is a shade which will suit every skin tone. It looks different on every lady.
It comes in a regular MAC lipstick packaging, their classic black bullet! And it also has a classic MAC vanilla scent.
The shade is a beautiful berry red. I find it really unique. It shows up differently on different skin tones and different light. It is a shade that you can wear for a party or for work and will still look beautiful. If you are someone who doesn’t like true reds, you can try this one!
It comes in their Glaze finish, which gives sheer but buildable coverage and feels really glossy and moisturizing. The color builds up really well and doesn’t feel patchy even after 2-3 swipes. The finish is satiny and not really shinny like a gloss. The formula makes your lips look fuller and really soft. The formula is really hydrating and I totally love it for everyday wear especially when you are sitting in an air conditioned office the entire day and your lips tend to fell dry and dehydrated.
The staying power is not too great. It stays for 2-3 hrs with mild snacking or sipping tea/water. I have to reapply after a proper meal.
Overall, I completely love this shade and formula and would highly recommend this to all!
