What an awesome way to try many shades at once with this MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit! The packaging is so pretty but I did had a tough time getting the tiny lipstick tubes to pop out of their case. Included in this kit are trial sizes (1.8 grams/0.06 US ounces) of Nouvelle Vogue, Creme Cup, Kinda Sexy, and Whirl. All are matte with the exception of Creme Cup, which is a cremesheen. I am wearing matte Nouvelle Vogue, my favorite, in my cover photo. The color lasts on me through several hours without retouching and looks beautiful with either natural or more elaborate makeup.
Creen Cup is very pretty but much too sheer to add any significant color to my lip. Kinda Sexy is the perfect nude for my complexion, sadly this one tends to settle into the lines on my lips. Whirl is a matte brownish with no red, it looks amazing paired with a matte eyeshadow. This color reminds me of the 90s lipstick my sister used to wear, but better.
I intend to purchase Nouvelle Vogue and Whirl in full size and I am very glad to have received this lipstick set for review.
