I got this MAC lipstick as a gift at Christmas and it quickly became one of my favourite pinks! It isn't a colour I had paid much attention to before i received it and it surprises me that it isn't much more popular. So, thank you to my best friends family for giving it to me!
It is so pretty and feminine! Barbie would love it. I love it. Everyone should love it. It is a blue toned pink and it seems to suit all skin tones. I've seen girls with much darker skin than me wearing it and looking awesome, and I think I look awesome in it. It's rare to find a shade that is so versatile, especially a pink! I will say though, Pink Nouveau seems to 'pop' more on darker skin shades than what it does on me.
It is probably my most worn shade of pink at the moment as I find that it looks great for both a low key look and a glam look.
It is a satin finish lipstick, which has a creamier texture than the matte finishes but I find that it still tends to dry my lips out a bit. To combat this I buff my lips and apply lip balm before I apply my gorgeous Barbie lipstick, and I'm good to go!
I find that it is very easy to apply and glides on without a fuss. The colour lasts a few hours (maybe 3-4) before it needs reapplied but it has pretty decent staying power. I don't wear a liner with this, as I don't have a shade to match it. The colour doesn't bleed without a liner anyway so I'm not in any rush to track one down. Saying that, if you know a liner that would match I am all ears!
I've used so much of this already in the few months that I've owned it, I am in love with the shade. I will definitely repurchase this once I run out because I don't think I could live without it. Dramatic? Yes. But as lipsticks go, it's pretty damn awesome.
