M.A.C. Pink Nouveau


Hello again! I'm posting from home today after coming back up north for the weekend before heading back to London later today for the last week of my internship! The birds are tweeting, the sky is a beautiful shade of blue and the sun is shinning down so life is good! Plus, I found out that I have achieved a first class honours for my first year of university so right now I am pretty much on cloud nine! Therefore, I felt like I deserved to give myself a little treat, and so headed into Selfridges on Oxford Street on Thursday lunch time and marched straight to the M.A.C. counter to purchase this gorgeous pink lipstick that I have had my eye on for so long!

Ever since I dyed my hair blonde about 15 months ago, I have loved wearing what I would describe as "Barbie pink" lipstick shades, however I have really missed being able to pull off the darker red and purple shades that I could do when I was brunette. Therefore as soon as I laid my eyes on this pink lipstick with its gorgeous purple undertones I just had to buy and try it for myself! The lipstick has a matte finish, leaving your lips looking plumped up and giving a more natural look than the sheen finishes leave. The great thing about this shade is that it works equally well for both day time and night time. It is subtle and complimentary enough to wear as an every day lipstick to university or work, but it is also bold and powerful enough to be pulled off at night time and add those subtle, sultry lavender tones to your evening wear look.

The lipstick is priced at £15.00 like all M.A.C. lipsticks, so although the price tag is slightly higher than many cheaper lipstick alternatives, the lipsticks always last a long time and I truly maintain that the quality of the product is worth it. I'm sure most of you will have used M.A.C lipsticks at some point before, so you will know that they are excellent quality. The lipsticks moisturise your lips leaving them feeling plump, and they have great staying power too, meaning you don't have to spend all day worrying about whether your lipstick is still in place or not.
