MAC Cherish

Oh, I know, I know, I promised to not buy any more MAC lipsticks. But in my defense, I was in Duty Free early this week, so a tax free lipstick is a good buy, no? ;) Or not, okay. BUT. I'm happy to say that I have found my HG nude lipstick!

MAC Cherish is another one of those lipstick shades that I never notice/heard much about/bother to check or swatch. I also never thought that it would make a great nude lipstick because from the swatch that I've seen at Karlasugar, it looks quite mauve. I just went on the MAC website, and Cherish is described as, "soft muted peachy-beige". Reading the description, you'd think this would wash me out, but no. It's more of a peachy brown as opposed to beige on me. It also has the tiniest hint of pink on it so it doesn't completely wash me out.

I don't wear eye makeup, but I do pile on my blush (Luster, still!), & surprisingly, it still doesn't make me look dead even without the heavy eye makeup. It has a Satin finish which makes it automatically a clear winner on my book. It's very pigmented, but as per nude lipsticks, it doesn't last too long on me. Maybe 3-5 hours? Good enough for me.



  1. Ahhh! Every time I click on your blog I have something new to add to my shopping list! Haha
    S xx

  2. @ Seonaid: A little payback for all the things that I've been adding on my shopping list, thanks to you? Haha! x

  3. Such a gorgeous nude! I do detect slight mauve tones but I think it doesn't really show up too much on your lips.

  4. This is my HG nude too; despite being about a NW5 or something (MAC doesn't go pale enough for me!). It actually seems to match and even out natural lip colour.

    The MUA recommended using Cherish with the cremestick liner in Summerfruit in the corners of your mouth to create more of a pout. I've given it a go and quite like it; seems to help wear time too.

  5. @sleepandwater: Yes! But thank goodness the Mauve-ness doesn't show up on my lips making it the perfect nude lipstick for me! :)

  6. @Lucy: Oh, thanks for the recommendation! Would till totally check Summerfruit out! x

  7. Parang meron ding ever bilena cherish, at parang magka-shade sila, haha.

  8. @ Rae: Matingnan nga yun! Baka sobrang dupe nila haha
