MAC’s holiday collection is up and I picked up one thing: Flair for Finery lipstick. Described as a “cool pink nude”, I bought this based on the description having not seen any swatches. This comes in special edition packaging, so instead of $15, it is $16.50. In this case, the packaging is very chic- matte black with gold detailing.
Flair for Finery is right up my alley. It is just gorgeous! I mean, LOOK at that creamy pink nude! I seriously have issues…just say “pink nude lipstick” and I’m off and running. ;) Anyway, I am definitely not regretting this purchase! The lipstick is a lustre finish, so it is glossy and doesn’t last as long as other formulas; however, the lustre finish is lightweight and good for people with dry lips (like me).
This lipstick swatches on the sheer side, but is more opaque on the lips. I thought it would be similar to some other nudes that I have from MAC, but it is more pink.
All MAC shades: Flair for Finery, Altered Beige, Creme d’ Nude, Well-Loved, and Blankety
I think this would be a great color to add to the regular line (a girl can dream). Also, though the color is described as cool-toned, I think many people could wear this as a neutral nude. If you remember last year’s Beauty lipstick from the holiday collection, that is way more cool-toned and even difficult to wear.
Flair for Finery is very wearable. If you love pink nudes, this is a great shade! It is currently sold out online, but check counters and online restocks if you like this shade.
