pink battle: mac pink nouveau vs nars schiap

Barbie pink shade lipsticks are IN right now.  I'm not usually the girl who falls prey on current trends but with this, I'm going to make an exception. Bright pink = Jamie. Its love.  By looking at pictures, reading reviews and listening to friends urge, 2 lipsticks came on top as having the brightest pink shade..nars schiap and mac pink nouveau.  

 Nars Schiap

My pick?

Though I love both, Nars Schiap ranks higher. The shade is just unique and lovely. Definitely not something to wear if you don't want to get noticed. :D

Very nice comparison.. both lippies look nice! even though NARS looks prettier, maybe i'll get the PInk noveau coz its much cheaper hehe

Both are awesome! How about MAC's Girl About Town or Show Orchid? They could be dupes for Schiap...

I actually like both but Schiap's formula is just drying! So I end up using Pink Nouveau more often :)

Hi Jamie! This post sooo rocks! I was browsing the net for some sample pics of the Lady GaGa MAC lipstick (when worn). I found your blog through one of the blogs I follow and bam! There you go! With matching comparison with NARS'. Great great great! I was happy :)

like you, I don't usually follow the trend, but lateley I've been loving the shocking pink lips... those are both pretty ones... but too pricey for me at this time... I just bought some lippies from Wet N Wild... I have yet to post them on my blog... but do check it out love your blog!!
