The lipstick fiend I am, I was looking forward to the MAC x Nicki Minaj Collection. This collection for autumn is full of muted neutral shades and I’m sure there’s a lipstick out there for every person.

My first observations were from the packaging. The actual individual lipstick boxes have varying colours on the tops reflecting the product inside, as opposed as the all-black boxes they normally come in. This makes it easier to identify the products if you love keeping them in their boxes as I do – lame, I know! These lipsticks all have that wonderful creamy easy-glide emollient feel, from the lustres/cremesheens to the mattes. There is no lip-tugging retro-matte formula here.

After a long swatch-a-thon at the MAC shop, I finally narrowed my purchases to these three shades.

MAC Among The Fireflies Lipstick is a medium brown with a hint of pink. It has a slight sheen, having a cremesheen finish. It looks so pretty on the lips. It makes them look soft and lush. It is very comfortable to wear, lasting a few hours.

MAC Nicki’s Nude Lipstick is a light-medium coral shade with a slight sheen and an Amplified finish. Again it is so soft and creamy. It applies well. The rose-gold packaging is also to die for!

MAC Baby’s All Right Lipstick is a mid-tone mauve with a matte finish. I was tossing between this and the darker MAC Age/Sex/Location Lipstick but I thought this one was prettier on my complexion. I think this will be one of the more popular shades in the collection.

As you can tell, I haven’t gone for any nudes that completely match my skin-tone as I feel I’ve passed that concealer-lips phase. If I needed to reach out for those, my matches would be MAC Freckletone Lipstick (lustre) or MAC Siss Lipstick (Satin) for NC30 skin, which I already have and I am quite happy with.

Are you looking to purchase any products from this MAC collection?
