Last few days have been so hectic and busy that I hardly got time to sit and write! Finally, when all the events are over and I have some time to write a post for you all! By the way, a couple of blog posts and vlogs are coming your way soon 🙂
After having done the MAC haul a few times, I have been using their products quite frequently and this one in particular a lot. It is the MAC Versicolour Stain in Ceaseless Energy. Sometimes when heading out I don’t feel like wearing a lipstick and those days I went for this stain and today I will tell you how it is!
About The Looks!
The packaging is classic black as for all MAC products, with the difference being that its bigger than regular MAC lipstick. The stain opens like a lipgloss which has a black cap and bottom with a transparent part in the center through which you can see the color. The cap has a wand which is perfect for application. I really like the packaging, its classy yet chic!

My thoughts and and views about the Versicolor Stain Ceaseless Energy!
When I tested this in the store I wasn’t too sure of the finish as it didn’t feel like other stains I had used or seen. So to be on a safer side I bought this shade which is a beautiful pink. Talking about pink, this surely finishes way darker and brighter than it looks from the outside. Even when you apply, the liquid is lighter in color, but then almost immediately turns in to darker and brighter version of the same. The color looks beautiful and actually can be worn both during the day or night.
Coming to the texture, I expected it to be watery which dries matte like a stain, but its not! The formula is very strange, but good! On application it does feel cool and watery but then it turns in to a creamy and glossy finish. It does stain the lips but the finish is not dry matte, but really creamy. Even after a few hours of application, the glossiness might go away but the creaminess can still be felt. It keeps the lips pretty hydrated and moisturized!
The stain with its glossiness lasts for about 4 hours and with just creaminess for about 6 hours. After that just the stain remains with very little bit of creaminess only on the outer part of the lips. In other words, the stain will remain on your lips even overnight, its the glossiness or the creaminess which goes away after a few hours. There I guess the lip balm will come in handy! 🙂
I would say it is a pretty unique and nice product which can be used everyday! I use this when I don’t feel like wearing any lipstick or makeup as such, but want to add some color to the lips. This shade is a lot darker than I expected so I think I am going to pick up a lighter one next time for another everyday use! So yes, I do recommend this product to everyone!
