MAC Lipstick in Nippon

It’s become a bit of a tradition to pick up a new MAC lipstick whenever I go on holiday, so of course I had to pop into a MAC store in Florida and add a new lippie to my collection. After plenty of switching I decided to go for Nippon, a shade that I’d never seen before but instantly fell in love with!

Nippon is described by MAC as a “creamy mid-tone coral pink” and I’d definitely agree, although I’d say it’s more pink than it is coral. I find this to be such an easy colour to wear as it’s quite muted but still adds a lovely pop of pink, and is a great one for everyday wear as it goes with just about everything.

Another reason why I was quick to pick up Nippon was because it has a Cremesheen formula – one of my favourites from MAC. Nippon is super creamy and has a beautiful sheen thanks to the very subtle gold shimmer running through it. I love that this particular lipstick instantly brightens up any makeup look thanks to the lovely sheen, and it’s one that I can see myself reaching for all year round. Cremesheens┬ádon’t tend to have the best wear-time because of their really creamy formula, but I certainly don’t mind reapplying every now and again as it’s well worth it!

  • This is such a pretty shade, it would look so pretty in the spring. I don’t have many of the cremesheen formulas, but this lipstick sounds amazing.

    • I can’t wait to wear it in the spring and summer, it’ll be so perfect! x

  • This is a gorgeous color and feels like it would be so pretty in the summer time. I’ve never tried a cremesheen finish but it looks lovely.

    What a gorgeous! I always tend to pick up something from duty free it’s a lovely little tradition and then that lipstick usually reminds me of that place! This will be such a lovely shade for Spring/Summer! xx

    • I’ve started doing that too, I just can’t resist a new lippie when I’m going through duty free! x

    Love this colour – May have to be a new addition to my mac lipstick collection!

    • I’m sure it would be a lovely addition, it’s a beauty! x

  • Oh this colour is so pretty! I can imagine getting a lot of wear out of this shade in spring/summer. I haven’t tried any of the cremesheen formula lipsticks from Mac before. I must invest x
