Mac's Pink Nouveau Lipstick: Review and Swatches



Hey dolls, what are your plans this weekend? I hope to get a chance to see the new Avengers movie. So excited to see the return of Thor. Anyways back to the blogging.  I never considered myself a “pink girl” but I’ve recently noticed a trend in my lipstick loves…pink! Today I bring you another pink mac lipstick and this one is by far my favorite pink lipstick ever…yes I said ever! From the title of this post I’m sure you know by now that its Mac’s Pink Nouveau lipstick. I've had Pink Nouveau for about a year now and have never really got around to doing a full review on it. So when I saw that i was being promoted with the new Mac Fashion Sets Collection, I decided this was a good a time as ever to share my love of Pink Nouveau. 



Pink Nouveau is the perfect blue toned bright pink. This is a true Barbie pink. Although its very cool toned I feel like this lipstick works well on a variety of skintones and looks lovely on brown-skinned beauties. Girls with really yellow undertones will notice that this lipstick will pull a little purple/lilac on them. For those of you who aren't comfy wearing this lipstick alone I suggest a lipliner to help make this shade more wearable. Try a bright pink or magenta liner or for those of you more daring a plum or purple lipliner looks amazing paired with this. Adding a gloss also helps not make your bright pink lips stand out too much.  



This lipstick is a Satin finish so its a bit semi matte and tends to be a little drying on my lips like most satins from Mac. To combat the crustly lip look be sure to prep you lips well before applying this lipstick. I recommend exfoliating you lips and using a lip balm or primer for added moisture.

Here are a few photos of me wearing Pink Nouveau






Note: This is a look at me type of lipstick. So yes you will get looks. To avoid looking over-done I suggest keeping your other makeup fairly simple. Perfect skin, natural blush and neutral eyes or even cat eyeliner looks perfect with this lipstick. And finally lipliner is your friend ladies
