Earlier this month, MAC x PUMA’s collaboration launched! I was originally eyeing the Crème d’Nude shade, but I was worried about how the color would appear in person: would it be pink, would it be coral, would it be peach? A lot of the shared photos on the brands’ Instagram accounts looked filtered, and it turns out, PUMA’s photos are extremely color-accurate, but I thought I’d share my shots as well in case anyone else was waffling between the colors. To me, Crème d’Nude is a muted, warm pink–definitely not peach, definitely not coral saturated enough not to look washed out.
The Sin pair also caught my eye, and I wasn’t sure how quickly (or not) the collaboration was going to move, so I figured I’d get a pair as my backup in case I didn’t like the color of Crème d’Nude.
Now, I have a dilemma on my feet (ha, ha, get it?!), because I love the look of both! They’re both gorgeous. I’d describe Sin as a deep, reddish-burgundy with a hint of cool undertones. There’s also a vibrant, orange-red pair, Lady Danger, which I didn’t pick up.
I haven’t worn them much, as they’ve only just arrived today, but a few hours on my feet and they remain comfortable. They fit true-to-size (I wear a size 10) for me with enough room to wear thin socks comfortably. I’ve been looking for a pair of low-top sneakers, and one of the issues I’ve had is that a lot of them make my foot look comically long (at least, to me), and between the design itself and the monotone coloring made these look sleeker on me than I expected. That being said, the Suede sneaker is a classic from the brand, so there are lots of reviews for other editions/versions. I’ll try to remember to update this post with some more thoughts after I’ve worn them for longer!
