Review: MAC Naturally Collection: A Perfect Day Lipstick and Naked Space Lipglass


As promised, today I have the lip portion of my MAC Naturally haul. For reviews of Redhead MSF and Fresh Honey Mineralize Blush see here.

MAC A Perfect Day Lipstick- Amplified

The Naturally lipsticks (like the entirety of the collection) all hinged on nude, neutral side. Now, I love a nude lip, but there are really only so many ways to achieve the look. That said, I was only drawn to one shade. A Perfect Day is described as a "light neutral pink" but that doesn't quite capture the actual colour. Yes, it's light, and it does have a pink lean, but also has a nude lean. I had doubts from the beginning as to how this shade would wear on me as it does start too look quite light when you start to apply it. Any lighter (I'm NW20 for reference) and I think this would make me look corpse-ish, but it has just enough pink to still be pretty. The finish wears quite well; creamy and opaque. Overall a nice shade but likely quite dupe-able.

MAC Naked Space is described as a "creamy mid-tone nude peach" and looked almost like a cross between two of my favourite lipglasses- Naked Frost (a shimmery nude) and Evolution Revolution (a pinky peach.) It wears like a nuded  peach, with a light amount of shimmer. Obviously, this is a tad thick and on the sticky side, but it is a great shade to match up with nude lipsticks or on its own.  
In the end neither shades are super unique, but are nice staples to have in your collection. Did you pick up any of the lip items? What did you think?

  1. Thanks!

    A Perfect Day is going to throw off a lot of people ( I think) it doesn't look as light as it is when you see it in the tube. Naked Space is for sure a keeper though!
