MAC Nut Cracker Lipstick & Blusher ReviewThursday, January 05, 2017
The moment I got info that it launched I drove all the way to KLCC to purchase it. I think the main reason why I fell in love with it is because of the packaging itself...The fuhcsia and plum purple is like the best combination ever and so my kind of colours!
Initially I wanted to get eyeshadow as well but the colour just not as appealing as what I see online. So, I got myself three item from this range instead . So, I got 2 lipstick and 1 blusher.
I pick this colour out of other is because I have quite a number of pink lipstick and this red seem to have a hint of fuchsia in it. It's a cool tone red which look very pretty on my yellow skin.
It has a matte finishing and I find it quite drying. Probably its because of the matte finish. I find some MAC matte finish lipstick can be quite drying for me. However the Dita Von Teese was not the case. I guess it's on colour by colour basis. It requires around two swipe for full colour coverage on my lip so I wouldn't say it's very pigmented. The colour stays on pretty well but if I eat anything that will wipe pass my lip the lipstick tends to get wiped off too mostly on the inner portion. It leave a sheer finish on the lip after my meal, pretty much the expectation for matte lipstick
Here is the swatch for both lipstick and also the blusher.
It has a shimmering base which I really like. It feels like the blusher is a 2 in 1 product. Using this blusher I can skip the highlighter. This blushes has a pinky peach with gold pearl. I am only using MAC blusher for the first time so not sure how good is this compared to their standard blusher but I find their blusher very pigmented. So one swipe is sufficient, my first time using I swipe twice and it's too much... It's way more pigmented than Hour Glass and Too Faced blusher.
then on second time, I dab my brush lightly and the results is so beautiful!
Alright I guess I shall end this post now before it gets any longer... Did you get any tiem from MAC Nut Cracker range? I love to see it just tag me on insta, FB or just comment below and tell me your thoughts on it too.. For now adios....
