MAC Lipstick – Salute!


Lips, LIPSTICK, MAC, NC20, Yishan | by — July 23, 2012


Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Salute! (Hey, Sailor! Collection)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Salute! is described as a neutral peach in an amplified finish.   On my skintone it’s a very pale peach-toned nude that completely “nudes out” my lips making it almost the same shade as my skin.
  • When applied directly from the tube, the creamy full coverage makes my lips looks as pale as though I  applied foundation / concealer on it.  For the swatch I chose to blend it with fingers for a milky nude /  translucent effect.
  • Whilst this covers my lip tone more evenly than other “pure nude” lipsticks from MAC, the finish is still not seamless & lets your natural lip tone show through.
  • Verdict: This shade is for those with NC10-NC20 skintones that want to create nude lips that match their skin tone.  To overcome the streakiness, line the entire lip with a nude lip pencil beforehand and make your lips are completely flake-free.

Applied on a generous layer of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm & blended with fingers for a milky effect.
When applied directly from the tube, it’s a full coverage nude with a tendency to streak.

RRP: $36 AUD
