Saint Germain // MAC Cosmetics



I bought this for a mere £7 a few months back after finding a Cosmetic Company Outlet in Portsmouth. I can't bring myself to spend over £10 for a nail polish because more often than not Barry M have a cheaper and better alternative. I'll happily spend £25 on a lipstick though.. go figure?! You all know I hold MAC Cosmetics close to my heart so into the basket Saint Germain jumped.

Saint Germain is a bubblegum pink, looks beautiful on the nails and is a major tan enhancer. The formula? Rubbish. For a nail polish that retails at £12, I wasn't impressed. It takes three coats to get a perfect opaque colour and even then it is ever so slightly patchy which you can see on my fore finger. Once you've taken the time and a lot of patience to get it looking perfect, it does look exactly that but who has that time? I want to paint my nails, spray some fixing spray and get out the house. Oh and it chips within hours. A MAC product I'm not a fan of? Who would of thought it.

  2. Such a shame, we would have thought the same as MAC lipsticks are amazing, expect other products to be the same high quality too. Thanks for sharing :-)

  3. Ah that's such a shame that the formula is so rubbish because the colour is so cute and very Moschino SS15. It's a good job that MAC make great lipsticks to wow us all back with! haha x

  5. I never thought I would come across a MAC review where it was negative! Thank you for your honesty and think I will be avoiding MAC and sticking with Barry M :) x

    1. I don't beat around the bush, although I've seen a number of reviews saying this is amazing so maybe I got a dud? I'm not sure. xx

  7. This colour is gorgeous, it's a shame the formula is pants! I'm the same as you, I would never pay over £10 for a nail polish! I even think Essie ones priced at £7.99 are expensive. xoxo

    1. Nail polish doesn't last long enough to spend over £10 I don't think and you don't want to throw a practically full pot away xx
