Hello Pretty ladies,
Barbie Pink lippies are not my favorite. You’ll find more of reds, corals, pinky browns on my stash, but hardly 2-3 pure pinks. But there are days when I want daisies in my hair and pinks on my lips, wear something special, go somewhere alone, away from all hustle-bustle and forget everything for a while.
Today’s post is on such a pretty pink, “Pink Noveau” from MAC Satin range.
.…!!! And Ira and Ruhee, your wait is over..!!
About MAC Satin Lipstick Pink Noveau :
“Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.”
MAC describes Pink Nouveau lipstick as bright pink.
Shade: It is a perfect Barbie doll pink or bubblegum pink shade (whatever u call it), definitely a blue based cool toned pink which looks a little neonish on me when layered. The shade reminds me of the pink icing on birthday cakes. It is a shade that I feel looks different on different people. I’m NW25, on me it looks plain pretty pink, my cousin is NC45, and on her it is more purple than pink.
It is great and subtle enough for day time wear, but also is an equally gorgeous bright night-out shade.
Texture: The texture is smooth creamy and glides on easily on lips. As from satin range, after few seconds of application it settles into a semi matte finish, but it’s not drying at all. But people with very dry and chapped lips should exfoliate their lips prior to use and use a balm underneath.
Pigmentation: It has a very good color payoff, one swipe for a medium opaque coverage and two swipes for a bold full coverage.
Staying Power: It stays on me for a decent 3-4 hours, after which it starts fading evenly. It survives small snacks and drinks.
Summing up my likes and dislikes
What I like about MAC Satin Lipstick Pink Noveau:
- A very yumm pink shade.
- Looks good on varied skin tone.
- Creamy smooth texture.
- Glides easily.
- Semi matte, yet not drying.
- Good color payoff.
- Covers lip pigmentation.
- Decent staying power.
- Fades evenly.
- Doesn’t bleed.
- Nice packaging.
What I don’t like about MAC Satin Lipstick Pink Noveau:
- It was pricey even at 990INR, thanks to MAC, it has now increased to 1100.
- Some may feel the need to prep lips prior to use.
- The shade may wash out a few.
Would I repurchase MAC Satin Lipstick Pink Noveau ?
As I said earlier, I don’t wear plain pinks often, so it’ll take me time to finish this. And moreover, this price hike is just so not cool. Why MAC, Why..!!?? Why did you do this to me??
Would I recommend MAC Satin Lipstick Pink Noveau to others?
If you are looking for a perfect BarbieDoll/ Bubblegum pink, then you can surely give this a try. Just don’t overdo it, keep rest of the makeup simple, perfect skin, natural blush and neutral eyes or a stroke of bold eyeliner or smudged blue eyes look perfect with this lipstick.
Rating: 4/5 …I am too bored of posing normally.
