Let’s talk lipstick. Lucky little old me per chance happened to be going through Debenhams last week when I realised that I had a couple of vouchers left to spend. I’m also lucky enough to have a Mac in my local Debenhams, and there was one thing in particular that I had had my eye on for a little while.

Patisserie by Mac is a Cremesheen finish, which means that it’s not too thick and also quite moisturising with a slightly glossy finish, though I’d describe it as more of a sheen, but being a Mac lipstick it’s still well pigmented. It also has a little bit of shimmer running through it that is barely noticeable on the lips. Patisserie is one of the shades I’ve heard a bit about in the blogosphere and I knew I just had to try it. The shade is a mid-toned peachy pink with a tiny hint of brown in it. On my pale skin it’s a “my-lips-but-better” shade, and so I’d imagine that it would be a pretty universal nude colour - not too warm or cool toned!

As you can see I put swatches next to Hue by Mac which is my favourite nude colour. It’s a little paler and more pinky than Patisserie, and also Shy Girl by Mac which is a much more of an orangey peach. I wouldn't say that compared to the swatches Patisserie definitely is that orangey at all, but that it’s the perfect pinky peachy blend for your lips.

I hope that you have enjoyed this quick little review, I think that lipsticks are really fun and have enjoyed sharing :)

I'm absolutely in love with the Viva Glam V (five). It's such a beautiful natural color with a slight shimmer. It's so pretty!
