Fashion Sets is MAC’s newest collection featuring “sets” of matching Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer. The colors were chosen based on how popular these shades of lipstick are in different regions of the world. This set features Pink Nouveau, a permanent Lipstick and limited edition Lipglass and Nail Lacquer.
Pink Nouveau products are available online for those of you in North America and are part of the Latin America/Middle East group of Fashion Sets, so they may also be available at some North American Macy’s locations. These sell for the usual prices, with Lipstick and Lipglass costing $14.50 and Nail Lacquer selling for $16.00.
Pink Nouveau Lipstick (Satin): Pink Nouveau is a “bright pink” that is intense and has cool/blue undertones, but still looks good on nearly everyone. It’s a Satin finish, so it has a smooth texture and gives a slightly shiny appearance to the lips. The coverage with Pink Nouveau is totally opaque without having to apply much product. A few Lip Pencils that you could use with Pink Nouveau are Just Wonderful, Dervish or Embrace Me or even Magenta for a brighter look with more contrast.
Pink Nouveau Lipglass: This Lipglass is a perfect match for the Lipstick, although when worn alone it’s not quite as intense. It has a creamy texture and is nearly opaque but not quite.
Pink Nouveau Nail Lacquer (Cream): Pink Nouveau Nail Lacquer is a very intense bright pink. It’s a hint deeper than the lipstick, but still almost a perfect match. It has a creamy, thick texture and is opaque in two coats.
As with all MAC Nail Lacquers, I get close to 4-5 days of wear without much chipping or tip wear. With a topcoat like MAC’s Overlacquer, it will last closer to a week.
