Some MAC and Nars lipstick swatches!

I posted a 'What I got for Christmas' video a while ago in which I showed all these lipsticks, and I promised to make a blog post with some swatches....
So here it is...
Nars Barbarella (Sheer)

Nars Dolce Vita (Sheer)

Nars Pago Pago (Sheer)

MAC Sandy B (Frost)

MAC Angel (Frost)

MAC Pervette (Glaze)

MAC Saint Germain (Amplified Creme)

MAC Please Me (Matte)
Nars lipsticks

The sheer formula of the Nars lipsticks is so creamy and smooth, but as the name suggests the colours aren't that pigmented. However, they can be built up to produce a slightly deeper colour. I believe Dolce Vita can also be bought as a lip gloss which is a much more pigmented colour.

MAC lipsticks

MAC's Angel and Sandy B (frosts) are both creamy and smooth, however I find the glitter particles can dry out the lips slightly more than Pervette, which is a glaze. I find the glaze formula feels lovely and smooth on the lips and I'm starting to like it more than cremesheen, which can be a bit slippy. As for Saint Germain (amplified creme), I love the colour (when applied slightly sheerer than photographed) and the formula helps to keep the colour bold. However, I actually find Please Me (matte) keeps my lips softer and the colour looks AMAZING for hours!!

What's your favourite Nars or MAC formula?

  1. Ahh I really want Nars Pago Pago and Barbarella! I love the sheer formula of Nars lipsticks - so easy to build up a stronger colour too! x
