Mac Morning Rose

MAC Morning Rose - £15.00

Now you may have come to realise that I am somewhat of a MAC lipstick junkie, I can never resist a new release. The Magnetic Nudes collection was no different, despite the amount of nude shades I already own I knew that I still needed to add MAC's Morning Rose to my collection.

Morning Rose is described as a soft cool rose, and once applied gives a medium pink with warm undertones - something that is completely different to all my other nude shades yet ever so flattering to wear. I find that the bullet appears lighter to how it actually looks on the lips, I wore this for my graduation and couldn't get over how dark this shade was in comparison. This is one of those shades that instantly brightens and perks up your complexion, a sure way of knowing you're on to a winner. The lipstick itself is a Cremesheen finish which means that it's very hydrating and applies easily and evenly.

Morning Rose is one of those shades that on firs glances happens to look like your average nude and quite similar to other lipsticks that fall into the vast category of nudes, however it's a completely different story once applied to the lips. I always bang on about how Creme Cup is my number one favourite MAC shade but sometimes find this can leave my face looking a little washed out, however this doesn't. It leaves my skin looking healthy and I think that is an important factor to consider when finding the perfect nude.

I found that this lasted for around 4 hours which is fab for a Cremesheen finish and think I only re-applied once during my graduation. It also appears glossy on the lips which makes it a perfect shade for the warmer months when you want to opt for a bronze or neutral look, this will honestly work with most looks from a gorgeous smokey eye to a gentle nude.

I think that this is a gorgeous shade to add to a nude collection, if you are looking for something a little different and something that will stand out amongst those paler pinks. Morning Rose is one of those shades which is perfect for everyday use and is one of those nudes that will flatter most skintones without washing you out. And after only a couple of uses has cemented its status as one of my favourite MAC nudes.

Did you get anything from the Magnetic Nudes collection? I'd love to know.
