Hey Girls,

Bold red lips are a trend in both Bollywood and Hollywood these days. We have seen many actresses flaunting sexy red lips on many occasions. So going with the trend today I will be reviewing a matte red lipstick from MAC. It is my first MAC product and I am really excited to talk about it.

The lipstick is called KANGA ROUGE. I received this as a gift and it was not alone. The product was in a pack of three which included a lip gloss and a miniature red nail paint from MAC. All three of these came is a clear sparkling round case. When I opened the wrapping paper I was already impressed with the case and then this lipstick made me love my gift. This lipstick is special to me as it is my first MAC product and it came in a white packaging which is different from MAC’s usual packaging.


Product quantity: 3g/0.1US oz

Price As it was a pack of three products it costed INR 2500.

Packaging: The lipstick came in a complete white packaging which looked very neat and classy. The cap of the lipstick is dome shaped which makes it difficult to store inverted to make the name visible. I think that this is a limited edition lipstick or may be the packaging is kept different due to the trio pack it came in. The regular packaging as we all know is complete black in color.


Product description:

Colour plus texture for the lips, Stands out on the runway, Simmers on the street! What made M.A.C famous.


My take on the product:

I applied it on the day I received it (I wasn’t able to control myself) and my first reaction was oh my god, I love it. My lips were looking stunning. May be I am exaggerating things but the reason behind it is that before this I never thought of trying a bold red lip. I just had one red lipstick, but that was way lighter.

Now coming to the formulation, the lipstick is not very smooth to apply, but it does not dry my lips and it stays on for a very long time. KANGA ROUGE is a matte red shade which is ideal for day but can be used during night with a gloss over it. The best thing about this shade is its pigmentation. Just one swipe and the amazing red color is on your lips. I also loved the smell of the lipstick, I literally feel like eating it.




  • Amazing pigmentation
  • Good staying power
  • Beautiful and elegant packaging
  • Delicious scent
  • Covers fine lines on your lips


  • The only con I can think of is that it is difficult to select the color from a stack due to packaging also they cannot be kept inverted with the name visible due to oval shaped cap. But as this one is in white packaging, the above mentioned con does not apply





Would I buy this product again? 

Oh yes…I will buy it again (I hope it’s not a limited edition color)…and I will buy some more colors as soon as I get a chance

Do I recommend this?

Absolutely! It’s a brilliant red and is ideal for sexy red lips J

Final Verdict: It’s a must buy if you love to flaunt red lips and there can be no doubt about the quality as it comes from a well known brand.

    1. sorry ma’am i am not yet aware about the dupes….but if i will find one i will surely share the info….thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. The collage of lips in the last pic looks fabulous. If that is your lips, then i should say they suited you very well. I loved the colour, but never tried a bold red in my life!

    1. thanks manogna 🙂 honestly when i saw the collage for the first time even i was surprised to see that the color looks soooo good on me 🙂 but i am happy that you too liked it 🙂 bold lips seems to be difficult to carry only until you try them, but once you start using bright colors and getting compliments it becomes really difficult not to use them 😉
