It hardly ever happens, but sometimes every now and then MAC gets it so wrong. I was going through my lipstick collection and found this sad little unused one. I had such high hopes for Naked Paris when I ordered it online a couple of years ago.
I thought it would be right up my alley: a lustre (my fav), in the brown/pink family, “shimmery”…what could go wrong? As soon as I opened it I was like:
I have never seen a glittery MAC lipstick before, but “glitter bomb” would be how I’d describe Naked Paris. It has so much glitter in it, you can actually feel the chunks of sparkle scraping across your lips when you apply it. You can see by the swatch, Naked Paris actually looks ok when first applied. But its so deceptive. Within half an hour, there is none of that pretty colour left on your lips, but there is tons and tons of glitter.
I have never had a MAC lipstick wear off in such an unflattering way. This is one of the worst lipsticks of any brand I have ever tried.
Thankfully, MAC has discontinued Naked Paris, sparing others from its awfulness. I guess I will just back-to-MAC this one.
Have you ever had a MAC lipstick fail?
