Man, don’t shoot me, I’m so late on my MAC Pret a Papier Review. I’m kinda sad I’m so late getting this up because it had some SUPER must haves in my opinion but no worries much of it is still available online and on counters. Phew!
What did you haul?
Pret a Papier, going by the promo images, was so incredibly snoring boring at first glance. I wasn’t even going to bother myself with the collection at all to be honest. But after seeing a few swatches I felt compelled to see what was up.
Thank GOD I did because I’d have missed out on some of better warmer shades of color that MAC has released in a long time.
Let’s talk about MAC Coral Crepe Paint Pot.
You have to get it.
It’s a warm shade of coral that you can probably totally get away with on your cheeks if you dare. I’m wearing it today and absolutely love it. On its own it’ll give eyes a subtle coral finish or paired up your favorite golds, peaches, and corals it’ll make a most excellent base.
Not one for nude lippies but Dressmaker is a beautiful nude peach that I thought made me look really fresh when paired up with warmer blush shades. Made to Order is a lovely shade coral peach for lips…yet another must have in my opinion.
The lipglasses weren’t too exciting but Fold and Tuck did stand out as it pairs up lovingly with Dressmaker to create a really outstanding nude lip look!
I only got one shadow which is Cut to Fit. It stood out as the boldest and will probably be very flattering on my brown eyes (haven’t tried yet). It’s a brown, coppery penny shade.
And finally another item that stands out and looks quite boring but turns into something quite delightful would be Instant Chic blush. The shade looks terribly pale and washed up but applies like a pure dream.
I think all the shades should be really flattering on creamier skin tones and are ideal for softer looks. I absolutely LOVED this collection and I urge you to check it out if you passed it up like me at first believing it to be a bit boring.
