I don't know what it is but it's been all about the nudes lately, specifically from MAC. Gone are the bright lipsticks, out come the neutrals. How long this will last I have no idea.
I have 3 nude lipsticks in my MAC lipstick collection so far and I want more. My first nude lipstick purchase was the shade 'Hue'(see review here) then I bought 'Patisserie' and most recently I purchased 'Angel' to add to the ever growing collection.
Over the last few months MAC Patisserie has been my go to nude lipstick. I've been using it non stop.
MAC Patisserie is a lovely natural pinky-beige shade I'd say, although I can detect a slight peach tone too. I find Patisserie to feel quite buttery on the lips once applied, and very moisturising which gets a huge thumbs up from me. It feels almost like a gloss but without that icky sticky texture that a lipgloss leaves. It's also quite intensely pigmented for a lipstick with a lustre finish. You only need at least two swipes of the lipstick to get the colour fully opaque on the lips. Not bad at all eh?
You can get at least 2 hours wear out of it which is pretty good. When eating and drinking though the colour does wear off pretty quickly so you'll need to reapply it again afterwards. I guess the longevity is pretty understandable due to the lipstick not being a matte formula/finish.
With Patisserie having those slight peachy tones within it I am surprised it doesn't wash my pale skintone out. It suits my skin down to a tee and looks very flattering.
I have been really into creating smokey eyes recently and Patisserie is one of those lipstick that completely tones it all down. For someone that's normally into her brights and pinks come the Spring/Summer time I am pleasantly surprised that I'm as into this lipstick as much as I am if I'm honest. I can not big it up enough. I can see why so many people rave about it. It's an all round, natural toned, wearable lipstick. Perfect to wear throughout the year no matter what season it is.
I will be so gutted once the lipstick has been used up(which will happen anytime soon at this rate). I will be repurchasing it yet again without a doubt. It's a complete staple in my makeup routine at the moment.
If you are looking for a lovely pinky-beige nude lipstick that doesn't wash out even the palest of skintones out then MAC Patisserie is for you.
