I can feel the chills in the air. Fall is definitely here to stay. I love that the humidity is below 40% which don’t require me to use hairspray all the time. I also love that Halloween is right around the corner and our garden mums are all so plump and pretty this time of the year. Halloween is also the time for smashing carved pumpkins courtesy of some mischievous middle schoolers in our neighborhood. Today’s post has nothing to do with Halloween, but it reminds me so much our pink peonies. It’s my last installment of the Mac Matte Lipsticks Collection: Mac Nouvelle Vogue. I like this shade of pink because it reminds me our peony blooms which are starting to wilt due to the gradual decrease of daily temperature. I also love wearing this shade of pink because it makes me look very fresh and I can definitely cheat 5 years less of my actual age.
Mac Nouvelle Vogue is characterized as a soft blue pink with a matte finish. On my lips, it looks like a cool medium pink with a matte finish. It went on for 6 hours of wear on me with very minimal transfer. It’s pretty impressive in terms of longevity for a pink lipstick. It is a non drying, non hydrating formula. It also feels really lightweight without any hint of pulling or tugging when applied. It is quite opaque even over my already pigmented lips. It never turns drying nor patchy throughout its wear time. It’s an improved matte lipstick formula and I hope Mac will make this shade permanent.
The Bottom Line:
Mac Nouvelle Vogue is women of color friendly which makes one look very fresh when worn. However, if you are super fair, you might look washed out in this shade. Dupes in my stash are: Mac Pinkfringe, Mac Please Me and Mac Pink Plaid. These are all close but not 100% dupes. I still recommend grabbing this shade if you already owned the lipsticks that I just mentioned. The formula and longevity is better than those dupes. I love wearing this shade paired with either bold eyes or bold cheeks. It’s also my top-picked pink lipstick for a minimalist makeup look.
