MAC Permanent Nude & Neutral Lipstick Swatches & Review Part One00:29
Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links
I feature a lot of limited edition or discontinued MAC here and honestly it's easy to overlook the permanent range in the face of so many LE collections. There are some amazing gems in the permanent line-up though, so today I have part one of the nude & neutral lipsticks that I have. The neutral/nude category is very subjective (you may consider some too rosy for nudes and that's okay! I'm showing you what I would pair with any makeup look as a neutral lip colour). Each shade will of course look different on varying skintones - for reference, I wear NC15 in MAC foundations. I do have a lot of shades to show you (this is part one of at least three posts) so if nothing in this post looks suitable for you, hold tight - there are more to come! :D
What I liked:
- All shades had great (or buildable), even colour pay off
- Honeylove, Patisserie, Hug Me and Fast Play had smooth, forgiving application and textures
- Most shades wore for three hours or more
- Honeylove wore for just under six hours
- Honeylove, Hug Me, Myth and Faux weren't drying
- Fast Play was drying
- Patisserie was slightly drying
- Myth was unforgiving of uneven lip texture
- Faux gathers around inner rim of mouth over the course of wear
