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.
