Mac Fashion Sets- Pink Nouveau Lipglass Review and Swatches


Mac recently came out with their Fashion Sets collection that took all of the best selling lipsticks and created matching lipglosses and nail polishes. I had initially given up on getting anything from this collection since I thought that it would not be available here in Trinidad. Lo and behold, I walk into Mac one day looking for the Hey Sailor collection and saw the Fashion Sets for Latin America, I nearly died. The Sets assigned to this region included the Pink Nouveau, Russian Red, Girl about Town, Impassioned, Morange, Please me and Snob sets. 
If you know me then you know I love Pink Nouveau. Its my go-to "look at me pink" so when i heard there was a matching lipgloss I just had to have it. Pink Nouveau because its a satin finish also has a tendency to be a bit drying so a matching gloss is a godsend. 



This Lipglass comes in the standard Mac lipglass packaging which features a clear plastic tube with a black screw top with attached toe-foot applicator. Mac lipglasses are $130 TT.






This lipgloss is a bright blue-toned bubble gum pink that is very similar to the lipstick. Its actually a bit milkier than the lipstick but I still think that Mac really did a great job coordinating this set. You can find my review on Pink Nouveau lipstick here. 


COMPARISON
Mac Pink Nouveau Lipglass and Lipstick (with and without flash)


This lipglass is very well pigmented and almost opaque. It does have a tendency to settle slightly into lines but nothing major. Like all mac lipglasses it has a thick, creamy and sticky formula that helps with wear time. I actually really despise the stickiness of Mac lipglasses and is the reason I dont buy mac's lipglasses. This ofcourse is a personal choice and this may not bother some at all. This lipglass lasts about 2 hours on me.

Overall 

If you are a fan of Mac lipglosses or of Mac's Pink Nouveau lipstick then I highly reccomend getting this one. Its the perfect bright barbie pink gloss. 


Did you get any of the new lipglasses to match your favorite Mac lipstick? What do you think of them?

  6. I usually just wear the lipglass on its own with some liner, my favorite colour is nymphette. I think the lipstick coupled with the gloss looks amazing! Visiting from the blog hop, would you like to follow each other?
