The more subtle and more affordable MAC's Saint Germain



Swatches Innocent by Beauty UK and Saint Germain by MAC.

Hands up if you own Saint Germain by MAC? And hands up if it just sits with a bunch of lipsticks that you don't wear anymore? I can legitimately say Saint Germain is one of the hardest lipsticks to pull off. I'm normally a sucker for lipsticks that make my teeth white and pristine looking but Saint Germain certainly is not one of them. I personally find it just so unwearable. Shaaanxo is the only person to date that I believe can pull it off confidently but honestly if you can pull this lipstick off - my hats off to you.

However, if you didn't jump on the band wagon many years ago and thought Saint G was the colour to wear then let me fill you in. Saint Germain is a Barbie, blue toned pink that is an amplified finish. It glides on the lips really well and has a slight glossy sheen to it, however for pale skin tones it literally looks like your impersonating Nicki Minaj.

Whilst I was sorting through some of my lipsticks I came across Innocent by Beauty UK which retails for £3.49. The colour is less cool and blue toned and more subtle looking. I liked to wear this lipstick just dabbed on my lips so its even more subtle for when I'm not wearing so much makeup. As you can see from the swatches, Innocent is very similar however is less cool and blue toned.

If you would like me to do any more dupe posts let me know.

  1. I don't suit light pink lipsticks at all! But the beauty UK one looks quite wearable, natural yet pretty! xx

    1. Yeah it's so much more natural than the mac one:) thanks for commenting lovely xo

  2. I just recently got MAC's Studio Fix concealer and whilst in there I just fell in love with all the products! I just wanted to buy everything, especially a lipstick, but as they are so expensive (especially for me as I am a teenager) I really want to get the right one. I also find that shades similar to Saint Germain completely wash me out, so thanks for the heads up :) xx

    1. I know, I'm so addicted to their products but especially their lipsticks! I have 24 mac lipsticks now - oops xxx
