i love this MAC lipstick! i used to only wear estee lauder's crystal baby but since i ran out of it and the store no longer carry it, i thought i might just try Blankety out.
im glad i did. i've got really dry lips but i put a lipbalm as a base always so i don't have problems with Blanekty being chalky. im a NC20 and this fits pretty well. a real yet pretty nude colour for me.
have repurchased and will buy it again :)
a great to go nude lipstick. doesnt feel that drying. gives a very nice nudey colour to the lips, yet it won't wash you out. love it!
I've noticed this color doesn't look the same on everyone, so the pictures posted are slightly misleading. This color is more plum on me, than on some of the more fair ladies. But I still like this lipstick. The pigmentation is awesome, but this lipstick only really stands out once a gloss is applied. I personally love MAC's Frankly Fresh over it. I would recommend this lipstick, but I would advice everyone to buy a complementary lipgloss to go over it.
This is NOT a nude shade, despite the name - Its actually very pigmented and quite dark on my lips, even with myth underneath as a base. Not pleasant a a shade as it has a rather odd undertone...greyish almost and not flattering to my skintone. Very misleading shade colour.......as another reviewer suggested, try and make it to the MAC counter to swatch and swipe their lippies as the names mislead and these are NOT cheap lipsticks. I sometimes think that MAC live on the fame of one lipstick of theirs - The famed 'Myth' which is a favourite of mine which I always come back to.
My first nude! I'm not a nude colour girl, but I caved after my obsession with Kim Kardashian & her always gorgeous makeup got the better of me. It's a little brown than nudish pink in the tube, however on the lips it's the same, just less of such a brown tint, though it's still there. The nice thing however, is that you can pop on a pale gloss on top & tailor it to your desired colour. Kinda works like a base, kinda...ish.
I bought it based on pictures found by google.
But the color is nothing like the pictures: its greybrown clay/mud-colored and not the old natural peachypink 'Brigitte Bardot' lipstick it seemed to be.....
My advice about Mac lipsticks: test them instead of buying online...
On my third tube. The best nude shade for everyday wear. I love the amplified finish that lasts all day, i never have to reapply, just touch up on my gloss once or twice. Girls, if u want the perfect big nude lips, pair blankety with mac stripdown liner (going a lil outside ur natural lip shape), gaga 1 or florabundance lipgloss on top! Ultimate pornstar lips!
Aw man! I really wanted this to work on me, but it just makes me look dead. Dead dead dead. It's way too light. But it does have some sort of magical power wherein it makes my lips look super-full, even if I mix it with another color. I'll keep it around for that reason, but wouldn't repurchase. The quest for the perfect MLBB lipstick continues.
This is indeed a great colour. I love it. I just got mine a few days ago and initially, the colour seemed "so-so" . However, when i started putting it on before heading towards the office, the colour showed up really nicely against my usual white based office clothing.
I pair this up with my MAC Spice lip liner and the colour is simply gorgeous. plus its got the amplified cream finish that I love so much.
My sis loves it so much, she stole mine!
