MAC Cosmetics Nude Lip Trio ($50 CAD, $54.50 CAD value)
While the value is basically non-existent on this collection (you only save about $4), the items in the MAC Cosmetics Nude Lip Trio are exclusive to this set and are limited edition for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. After swatching the lipstick in Pretty Natural, I was debating whether or not to buy back ups! Some of my favorite MAC lipsticks come out of their limited edition collection and while I knew I would finish this and frantic to find a dupe, I practiced some impulse control and grabbed the one collection.
The collection comes with 2 lipsticks (1 cream sheen and 1 metallic) and 1 Lipglass all in the medium, warm pinky-nude family:
Pretty Natural (creamsheen lipstick) is a light warm pink colour.
This is my favorite item from the set because the colour is so soft, neutral and gorgeous!The formula is soft, creamy and pigmented (true to the cream sheen formula, which is my favorite). While I prefer brown nudes over pink this shade has just enough warmth to it for a beautifully natural, wearable and soft lip.
Love Drought (metallic lipstick) is a warm metallic silver pink colour.
Let me start by saying I avoid metallic lips at all cost, but this particular shade is so incredibly flattering because of both the colour and the pigment. This is a beautiful lip topper in the middle of my lips to add light, dimension and plumpness without looking plastic or fake. The colour is sheer and can be built up to be semi-opaque and is extremely flattering on the lips
Body-Con (Lipglass) is a warm light brown shade with hints of warm lilac.
This is a beautiful lipglass shade that’s hard to describe but a gorgeous take on a nude lip without being too pink or brown.
Overall, I highly recommend this collection and WISH MAC made these shades permanent because I can see a lot of people loving this. For those who prefer brown nudes or light to medium skintones who stay away from concealer lips, I think you would quite enjoy this collection. The colours are wearable, flattering and gorgeous!
