REVIEW AND SWATCHES OF MAC NICKI MIRAJ COLLECTION LIPSTICKS


Hi Everyone,

If I ask to splurge on any high-end brand any day, it will be Mac cosmetics always. And If you are following me on my blog then you all know that Mac cosmetics is one of my all-time favorite brands. But sometimes this craziness cost me a lot...I know but still, I can't stop investing in Mac.

Today's topic is MAC NICKI MIRAJ collection. A collection that is perfect for people with fair or cool fair skin tone. A collection that hardly impresses we Indians unless we are a fan of "NEUTRAL" shades.

MAC NICKI MIRAJ collection launched long back(a few months back) and it is still available in store and maybe online too (I had to recheck it as last time I checked in Nykaa, it was still there).

A little more info about the collection:-

Nicki’s two new suggestive shades so you can get cheeky and take charge.

Full Description:-

Get cheeky and take charge with Nicki’s two new suggestive shades. Includes a soft coral-pink and mid-toned creamy pink hue, both in Amplified finishes. Color-matched bullets feature her signature.

NICKI'S NUDE:- Limited editions of corally pink. Pair with EDGE TO EDGE Lip Pencil & N-U-D-E Lipglass

MAC NICKI MIRAJ collection launched an entire collection of Nude lipsticks and glosses. Personally speaking, I am not a fan of NICKI but the neutral shades collection of Nicki attract me a lot.
The lipstick Nick's Nude comes in a gorgeous pink packaging which is a limited edition packaging along with few other N*des shades that are either new or few are repromoted one.

I picked up three shades from these entire MAC NICKI MIRAJ collection. They are NICKI'S NUDE, BABY'S ALL RIGHT (MATTE) and  MMMMMMM (AMPLIFIED).

Shade Description:-

  • NICKI'S NUDE:- a warm coral- peachy shade with an amplified finish.
  •  BABY'S ALL RIGHT (MATTE):- neutral mauve with a matte finish.
  • MMMMMMM (AMPLIFIED):- a pinky mauve amplified shade.

My Experience:-
All the three lipsticks are neutral in shades. So they are perfect for daily wear. All the three lipsticks are pigmented. The matte lipstick feels like creamy finish as it glides smoothly on lips. All the 3 lipsticks are quite moisturizing on my lips and they stay intact for hours. The matte one stays 6 hours while amplified one stays 4/5 hours on my lips.

Starting with Nicki's nude, the lipstick that washes me out badly as I have strong warm undertone and this lipstick is perfect for people who have a cool undertone. The amplified lipstick needs to pair up with a darker lip liner to make the shade look good on me. I don't like it that much :(

Next coming to Baby's all right lipstick which is my favorite one among all three. It is a beautiful matte neutral mauve kind of daily wear shade perfect for my warm fair skin tone. It looks one shade lighter than Mac lipstick Mehr on my lips. I love to pair it up with a dark pink lip liner sometime.

 Lastly, the shade MMMMMM is a beautiful a pinky neutral mauve shade. This shade is again perfect for both neutral and warm skin tone people. The lipstick is an amplified one but quite pigmented. Although it is meant for warm skin tone people too but again it washes me out a little bit if I don't do proper makeup. So this particular shade is ok for me.

All the three shades are neutral shades. If you are little medium or tan skin tone then these lipsticks will go to wash you out badly. So medium skin tone people if still want to try and buy these shades then it is my personal suggestion that use a dark lip pencil beneath these lipsticks to avoid that wash out kind off look.

Overall the collection is not meant for Indian skin tone where the majority of people have warm medium or beautiful dusky skin tone. 











That's all for today. See you in my next post.
Love Sammy :*
