Swatch Comparison: Ever Bilena Off Beat Pink Vs. MAC Pink Noveau

Best Blogger Tips

Here's Ever Bilena's Matte Lipstick in Off Beat Pink and MAC's Satin Lipstick in Pink Nouveau on the tube compared side by side.

From the tube, MAC Pink Nouveau looks more true pink while Off Beat Pink is more of a muted rose. When swatched, here's how they look:

MAC Pink Nouveau seems darker because it has better pigmentation than Off Beat Pink. I needed to swipe Off Beat Pink a little bit more just to get a close to the color intensity of Pink Nouveau. Comparing the two, both look very close being in the same cool pink category. Major difference is in the obvious purple undertone of Pink Nouveau - Off Beat Pink shows no purple undertone at all.

What do i like better? In terms of color, Off Beat pink is definitely the winner. Having a skintone with olive undertones, purple and i don't go very well together. In terms of quality though, no question, MAC is the runaway winner. 

My final thoughts,
If you are looking for a close dupe of MAC Pink Nouveau, you may want to try out Off Beat Pink. It's not an exact dupe of MAC PN, but it's pretty close. You will find a more detailed review of Ever Bilena Off Beat Pink here and a detailed review of MAC Pink Nouveau here.



  1. Such a nice post po :) I am an avid user of eb (foundation) but not of their lippies, but i've heard a lots of good reviews about the off-beat eb lippy. This is the good thing about the local products, if di afford ng mga ladies ang super duper expensive na mga make-up products like MAC meron namang dupe. hehe
    By the way, haven't posted a comment here on your blog, but I've been following it for a long time na po :) Cheers - jenny.

    1. You should try EB lippies too sis. not as good ang quality of course with the high end lippies but ok naman ang pigmentation, and magaganda din ang colors niya. thanks for following my blog! i followed you din.

  2. Hello, is there anywhere that sells the EB lippies in the UK?? Nadia x
