As many of you frequent readers know by now, I am a total lipstick junkie, especially nude shades! I probably have enough for us all and today I thought I would share my top MAC lipsticks! I would definitely say that MAC is my favourite brand, especially for lipsticks! They are £15.50 which is a lot for a lipstick butI haven’t found any cheaper ones which I prefer more and the shade selection is on point! In terms of formulas I think my favourite is matte, especially with the nude shades, they just look so chic and are very comfortable! For a more everyday lipstick I like the cremesheen formula as it has a good level of coverage and is comfortable on the lips!
MAC Velvet Teddy – Matte
Of course this one has to be in my top MAC lipsticks! I think that Velvet Teddy is such an iconic shade, especially within my generation. It is the ultimate lipstick for the Kylie Jenner lip and although it is a strong beige/brown tone it is actually very wearable and is perfect for the 90’s make up look that is really trendy right now!
MAC Creme Cup – Cremesheen
This is my favourite everyday lipstick, it is the perfect wearable pink colour and as it is a creme sheen it sits so comfortably on the lips!
MAC Cinderella Collection Royal Ball – Lustre
This is a paler version of Creme Cup, but is still a very wearable and as it is a lustre it has a semi-gloss finish which I really like! This shade is paler than my natural lip colour, so I like to make sure I’ve a bit of a tan or am wearing plenty of bronzer before I apply it!
MAC FAUX – Satin
This is a very similar shade to Velvet Teddy but it is more pink, I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wanted to try the nude semi-matte lip look as it is a somewhat ‘my lips but better’ shade! As it is a satin is has a semi-matte finish, which makes it seem more casual and it is quite moisturising on the lips.
MAC Kinda Sexy – Matte
This is a very peachy version of a nude lip, honestly I don’t really like it when I apply it fully on my lips but when it’s dabbed lightly on them, it gives a really beautiful colour! I find myself reaching for this shade more in the summer months as the peachy tones look really great with a tan!
Lipsticks are a weakness of mine, and I’d love to hear any recommendations of companies and shades you think I should try!
Hope to see you around,
