147 lip paint, peach melba nail paint, bold black pencil liner
before he sent my package he asked what kind of things i liked, and if there was anything i wanted to try. i couldn't think of anything at the time so i just said i liked neutrals and i was a fan of the nail and lip paints so i was super glad to receive these colours! i actually bought blue moon a few weeks ago and contemplated buying peach melba also but decided not to for some reason. i've heard quite a lot about the 147 being a dupe for mac ever hip, and ever hip being a dupe for cut a caper.. so..
cut a caper, ever hip, 147
i think the lightening must have been rubbish here because they're photographing really red - they're definitely very coral! i'd say ever hip and cut a caper are basically the same colour but different finishes but the 147 whilst is lovely, isn't quite the same. it's a bit peachier and i don't know if it's just me but i find the lip paints a little harder to wear - they do seem to emphasise dry areas.
cut a caper, ever hip, barry m 147
i think these photos show the colours much more accurately than the lipsticks side by side. you can see the peachiness in the 147 a lot more, and the pink in the mac ones show up more on me.. which i do think suits me better. if you prefer orange/peach corals then the 147 will be perfect for you, if you prefer pinker corals then i'd recommend cut a caper and i'd say ever hip is somewhere in between. unfortunately the mac lipsticks are limited edition but if you can find them anywhere definitely pick them up! i think my favourite is ever hip, mainly because it's a cremesheen where as cut a caper is a lustre and doesn't last as long!
who knew there were so many shades of coral though?! whats your favourite coral lipstick?
