You like BIG things? MAC BRICK-O- LA ~Review & Swatches

I have a thing for all things brick.
I like bricks in general. Duh. I'm an architect.
I like bricks of ice-cream. The bigger the better, no?
I like big things. No this isn't a special super-sized MAC lipstick. :) This is just a super-sized beautiful colour to paint your pout! Quite a mouthful? Let this paint your full mouth! You know, I'm totally losing it! :P

I actually got this for my mum on Mother's day. :D But she had one already :P But being the doting daughter, I gifted it to her anyway.
Its another story that I took her Brick-o-La. :P

Price: Rs 990

Colour & Finish: MAC describes it as a Mid toned Berry. It is a beautiful colour. Very polished. Dresses up the entire look. It has enough colour of a brick in it and enough brown. This has enough pink in it so it doesn't get too serious! :)

Brick-O-La is an Amplified creme. This is my favourite finish from MAC. So pigmented. A full blast of colour! 
Other thoughts:
This is a colour that would suit just about anyone. Any colour, any age.
It looks brilliant on my mum and looks polished on me. This is not a regular colour for me. It works for all formal occasions.
Lasts for around 4 hours on me. Which is a lot considering nothing lasts long on me.
It was super sunny when I took this picture and hence the colour has been altered. There's more pink in it.
Edit: Adding more pictures. :)

INDOOR- In front of the window!:P
This is the darkest lipstick I own. I never thought I'd love it like I do now!
Totally recommend this to everybody! I have a hunch you'll love it just as much as I do! :)

I've worn Brick-o-la mixed with MAC Cosmo here.


  1. haha only as long as you likeee!!!:D

  2. This looks amazing.This was the color I had in mind when I ordered Lancome's brick but that turned out to be too orangey. Must put this down on my wish list. Thanks for sharing.

  3. "I like bricks in general" LOL!!
    I would love a brick of ice cream right about now! BEAUTIFUL color omg! I loooove it on you! It looks great for everyday. How do you do your eyes when you wear this?
