My first Mac lippy: Peach Blossom

I have bought my very first Mac lipstick! I know it is unbelievable that a beauty lover like myself has never owned one of the most loved lipsticks around. Truth be told, the Mac lipstick counter is/was a bit of an intimidating place for me. There is just so many options to choose from and it is often surrounded by hordes of teenage girls.

With a little help of my bestie Suus, I recently managed to pick up the Mac Cremesheen lipstick in Peach Blossom. Unsurprisingly, I love it! I think my quest for the perfect nude might be over.

First things first; the packaging is lovely and functional. It feels very sturdy, which is good as this will probably be spending most of its life on the bottom of my hand bag. I am so bad at putting lipstick back in its spot, am I the only one with that problem?Mac Peach Blossom Nude Lipstick (2)

Peach Blossom is part of the Cremesheen range: a creamy formula with medium coverage and a lovely glossy finish. This feels very hydrating on the lips and the finish certainly has a little bit of gloss but isn’t overly shiny.

It wears off in about two hours, so reapplication throughout the day will be necessary. However, the color is very neutral and wears evenly, so it doesn’t feel like you have to reapply every two seconds.

The color is just the perfect ‘my lips but better’ color (I know, big cliche). It definitely leans more towards pink than peach with perhaps a hint of brown. It is just light enough to lift my look but still very natural and without making me look washed out. I think this really might be the nude lipstick I have been looking for.

Ik heb mijn allereerste Mac lippenstift gekocht! Ongelofelijk dat ik als beauty liefhebber nog nooit een van de meest geliefde lipsticks gekocht heb. Als ik eerlijk ben vind ik de Mac lippenstift counter nogal intimiderend. Er zijn zoveel keuzes en er staat vaak een hele horde tiener meisjes om je heen.

Met een beetje hulp van beste vriendin Suus heb ik laatst de Mac Cremesheen lippenstift in Peach Blossom gekocht. Grote verrassing: ik ben er verliefd op! Ik denk dat mijn zoektocht naar de perfecte Nude eindelijk over is.

Allereerst de verpakking: mooi en functioneel. Het voelt heel stevig aan en dat is maar goed ook, want deze gaat ongetwijfeld veel tijd doorbrengen op de bodem van mijn tas. Ik ben echt zo slecht in het terugzetten van lippenstift op de juiste plek, ben ik de enige met dat probleem?

Peach Blossom hoort bij de Cremesheen collectie: een romige formule met medium dekking en een mooie glimmende finish. Het volet heel hydraterend op de lippen en hoewel de finish zeker mooi glanst is het niet te glimmend.

De lippenstift houd ongeveer twee uur, dus je moet gedurende de dag wel bijwerken. De kleur is echter wel heel neutraal en slijt gelijkmatig, dus het voelt niet alsof je moet bijwerken.

De kleur is echt een ‘mijn lippen maar beter’ kleurtje (jaja, cliche!). Peach Blossom neigt meer naar roze dan perzik met een klein beetje bruin. Net licht genoeg om mijn look te liften, maar nog steeds heel natuurlijk en zonder het gevreesde “washed out” effect. Ik denk dat dit de nude lipstick is waar ik al een tijdje naar op zoek was.

Mijn eerste ervaring met Mac lippenstift is dus echt fantastisch. Peach Blossom heeft een fijne hydraterend en natuurlijk gevoel en ik pak deze steeds als ik een neutrale lippen wil. Welke kleur moet ik nu proberen?

    I guess I can say that I’ve never tried MAC lipstick, because A) I want all of them and B) I wouldn’t even know where to start. But that’s a great color and an awesome first buy!

    Was so excited to see this! I’m really glad you like this πŸ™‚ Don’t have this colour but it looks so lovely on you πŸ™‚ As this is more on the pink side, I recommend you try Jubilee which is more on the neutral brown side and Shy Girl, a bit more on the peach side. There is also Pure Zen which is a salmon type of pink πŸ™‚

    Pretty! This looks like one of those no-brainer shades, you probably don’t even need a mirror to apply!
    I really like MAC’s amplified creme formula – they’re more pigmented but not drying on the lips. I have the shade “Cosmo” which people say is a dupe for the Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle.
    If you like creamsheen formula, I’ve heard great things about Crosswires (warm coral) and Fanfare (nudey pink).
