MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Lipstick Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

I avoid MAC Cremesheen Lipsticks like the plague but the shade Peach Blossom passed across my desk from the MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Collection and it was instant love.

It quite reminds me of my very favorite shade of lipstick from Urban Decay, Naked.

Take a look!

Peach Blossom is a cooler frosty nude shade of peachy pink. This could be deemed a bit mod, a bit nude, and a bit bubblegum pink. For me it comes across as a softer shade of rosy pink with very sheer color payoff. The color has a certain MLBB (my lips but better) finish to it for me which was why I loved it so much. I actually paired it up with Dynasty at Dusk one of the Cremesheen Glasses released with this collection and it pops hard.

For a cream finish it has a nice easy glide in a soft, moisturizing formula that isn’t drying in the least. Supposedly the formula is infused with crushed pearl but it doesn’t translate in the lipstick to me.

If you like cooler more wearable shades of nude pink I’d recommend picking this one up. I liked it a lot. Will try to get a face of the day up soon using it as it’s something you really have to see on lips to appreciate it.

Muse Approved.

Love this shade.

    my problem with this kind of lips products is the shine and how quick they wear off, I have a lustre from mac love the color but it goes sooooo fast that is kind a waste.

    Since Urban Decay’s Naked lipstick was my favorite but is now discontinued, I’ve been looking for a dupe. Thanks for this review. Looks like I’ll be visiting the MAC counter tomorrow morning!

      my pleasure heather, feels quite like naked to me but more rose to it ;-D let me know what you think!

      • Heather

        I picked one up and it’s gorgeous. I think I like it even more than Naked. Like you said, it’s a little more pinkish, but so close that I’d call it a dupe. The “pearl” doesn’t show up at all on me, which is fine. I’m a cheerful girl, especially since it’s permanent. Oh happy day!

    Will you be doing a review on other shades? Was really excited when the promo for this came out but all the reviews I’ve read so far aren’t so good.

      alex I’ll be away when they launch on counter but I’m wanting to grab a few more so perhaps when I get back I’ll have a review ;-D
