PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: MAC AMPLIFIED CREME LIPSTICK IN CHATTERBOX

Here's an initial review on MAC AMPLIFIED CREME LIPSTICK IN CHATTERBOX

PRICE: 900PHP
PLACE BOUGHT: EBAY.PH
OTHER LOCATIONS: MAC STORES; MAC ONLINE


THE VERDICT:

Pink Nouveau was the perfect bubblegum pink for me until I turned two shades darker after my Boracay trip. And it totally washed me out when I wore it to a birthday party.

I therefore conclude, Pink Nouveau is too cool for my skin tone. I thought that a warmer bubblegum pink might work on me.


So after a thorough research over the net, I decided to get Chatterbox.


Maccosmetics.com described this shade as a bright red- pink. The red undertone is very obvious in this shot.



Swatch on my skin tone.

Indeed, it was a perfect choice to purchase this because the shade doesn't wash me out. It still looks pastel on my lips, but it's not as light as Pink Nouveau.


I threw in a comparison pic in case you're wondering if it's similar to Pink Nouveau. In terms of being "bubblegum", both are similar. Chatterbox is a warmer bubblegum pink, while Pink Nouveau is the cooler one.


The red undertone somewhat made the pink shade stand out in a nice way against my NC42 skin tone.


And it doesn't make my teeth appear garish, which is my problem sometimes with Pink Nouveau.


At last! A bubblegum pink shade for tanned ladies. :D


Chatterbox is a nice spring color. I'm into pastels right now when it comes to clothing and make- up. If you're tanned, and would love to sport a bold, pastel lip, then pick up Chatterbox. :)

Off topic: Is my face getting plump??? Oh. Gotta diet now!

    I hate being nc40 no pastel pinks work for me.

    I hate being orange-yellow ish. I preorded candy yum yum but it got destroyed on its way here. I'm still doubting if I can pull off girl about town.

    Haha I'm quite happy to find someone who has almost the skin town as me. Most people I know and bloggers are Nc25 :)

  12. It looks so pretty on you! Would you know if it would suit fairer skintone? I'm nc25, chinese with yellow undertones. I'm thinking of buying pink nouveau but i'm afraid it might be too cool for my skintone

  14. janelle: thank you sis! :) Pink nouveau looks better on fairer skintone. This may look a bit darker on you, or more of a cool pink lipstick. :)

    anonymous: thank you! I'm not familiar with the shading of Maybelline. If you're fair, you can try pink nouveau. But if you're medium- dark, you can try this. :)
