MAC Pink Nouveau lipstick is a bright bubble gum pink lipstick, if your looking for a barbie lipstick this is for you. Pink Nouveau is a really pretty color but when I first tried it on, I have to say I hated it. I had never worn lipstick before let alone bright lipstick, so when I got Pink Nouveau it was a big shock and I thought I looked like a big lipped clown. Why I decided to buy the brightest neon lipstick out there for my first lipstick is beyond me, I would advice lipstick virgins to get a color more closer to your natural lips and then move on to brighter colors. Personally I wouldn't wear Pink Nouveau by itself but I would wear it with a lip-liner that tones it down so it looks more flattering on my pigmented lips and dark skin.

As I find the Pink Nouveau lipstick a bit milky on my complexion, I normally wear it with a fuchsia lip pencil, see picture below. Don't you think this lip color would go so perfectly with the Nicki Minaj Pink Friday OPI nail polish that I mentioned in a previous post, click here to check it out.
Overall I think the color is really gorgeous but I personally feel the color would be more suited to those with lighter complexions. This lipstick is quite drying so I would advice wearing a lip balm before applying Pink Nouveau.
Mac Pink Nouveau retails for £13.50
