MAC Cosmetics recently collaborated with Nicki Minaj to create 2 lipsticks and today, I am going to be talking about and swatching them!!
MAC Cosmetics X Nicki Minaj Description/Review
The MAC Cosmetics X Nicki Minaj Lipsticks are limited-edition lipsticks that have an Amplified finish. Each lipstick contains 3.00 grams - 0.10 ounces of product, has a shelf life of 12 months and is made in Canada.
As I said, both of the Lipsticks have an Amplified finish. MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks come in multiple finishes- Matte, Retro-Matte, Cremesheen, Satin, Amplified- and more. The MAC Amplified lipstick's are the most creamy type of finish in the range. When comparing them to the Cremesheen finish, which is the closest thing (in terms of creaminess), the Amplified lipstick's are more pigmented, deliver full coverage and are not sheer at all. They are super pigmented, glide on the lips so easily and deliver an extremely intense color pay-off.
The formula is consistent between BOTH lipsticks and they perform the exact same way. They are super comfortable, extremely pigmented and don't apply to the lips patchy or streaky. What I LOVEEE about these lipsticks is that they don't tug on the lips when applying, and you don't have to apply layer after layer.
The packaging of the MAC X Nicki Minaj Lipstick's is soooooo pretty. Both lipsticks are the same color on the inside as the outside packaging and the packing is sturdy. The last traditional stick lipstick's I reviewed was the JS Lip Ammunitions, and in that post I mention that his lipsticks feel like they are going to break and that the twist top was tight and clicking. In comparison, the packaging of MAC lipstick's are the opposite and are so sturdy. When you twist them, they don't feel tight and the material is quite obviously high quality. I also love the fact that they are in special packaging.
Overall, I absolutely LOVEEEE the MAC X Nicki Minaj Collection Lipsticks!! The nude shades are my favourite tones and shades of nudes to wear, so I am extremely happy with the shade selection, although I'm not sure everyone else will be as these shades are pretty light, and not everyone likes light shades. The shades are so typical of Nicki too, who manages to pull of light nudes lipsticks so good.
Let's get into the shades and swatches babes.....
