MAC Lipstick | Pink Nouvou Review + Swatches



Hey Beauties...
Quite a few weeks back I won a Giveaway from the lovely Aqeela from Diary of A Make-up Geek, the prize she was giving away was MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouvou. If I'm completely honest this isn't a shade I would of thought to of picked myself, but it looked like my kind of shade, so I'm glad I won it and was able to try it for myself.

Pink Nouvou is a Satin finish, which for those who are unsure, is a demi matte, which means it has the lasting power and thickness of a matte but it's just that little bit creamy and less drying on the lips, perfect if your lips are usually too dry to pull off a matte lipstick, the same as Rebel (review). Although this one does have the 'signature' vanilla scent, I did notice it wasn't as strong as the other MAC Lipsticks I have, I don't know if its this shade, just the one I have, or my nose being weird.


As you can see this colour is a gorgeous solid bright pink. The wear on this lipstick is pretty impressive, I applied it at around 9am and it was still on my lips around 7 or 8pm when I removed it. I will say it's probably best to apply a lip scrub or balm to the lips a few mins before applying this lipstick just to make sure there is no dead or major dry skin on the lips as these finishes have a tenancy to stick to them, but the lipstick itself doesn't dry out the lips and its quite creamy and easy to apply.

Overall I really do love this lip colour, and think it's definitely my spring alternative to Rebel! I am really pleased that Aqeela, decided to pick this colour for her giveaway otherwise I would never have thought to pick it out myself if given the choice. So if your in the market for a gorgeous bold pink for spring, I highly recommend this shade and think it will suit all skin tones!

Have you tried Pink Nouvou yet? What are your thoughts on it? I'd love to know so leave your thoughts in the comments below and I'll get back to you

  1. Lovely colour, creme cup is a similar shade but a bit more toned down for when you don't want such a vibrant shade
