The MAC lipstick in Creme Cup was my first higher end lipstick that I purchased. When I was in a MAC store for the first time I felt like a kid in a candy store, all those lipsticks to swatch, eyeshadows galore and everything in between. I know that with all the choices that we have now I sometimes forget about my MAC lipsticks but it seems like I always come back to them. MAC has a huge line of shades and finishes but my favorite have to be their more neutral every day shades.
I narrowed my selection to my 6 most loved shades and it was a really hard task to do. Most of them have a matte finish because I like my lipsticks to be matte but there are a few that are more on the creamy side too.
- MAC Brave – It’s described as a pink beige with white pearl. The lipstick has a satin finish and I don’t actually notice any white pearl on my lips. It’s my perfect darker pinky nude shade.
- MAC Hug Me – Described as a flesh pink in a lustre finish. This is the sheerest lipstick of the 6 and I love it for every day use. It’s very hydrating and makes you lips look very healthy and glossy.
- MAC Velvet Teddy – One of my favorite nudes is described as deep tone beige in a matte finish. It’s a darker nude that leans on the brown side on my lips. Even with the matte finish I still find it comfortable on the lips and the lasting power is excellent.
- MAC Faux – A muted mauve pink in a satin finish. It’s a very pretty mauve that’s very comfortable on the lips and literally goes with every look.
- MAC Mehr – A dirty blue pink in a matte finish. This is a darker version of Faux but still very wearable for every day. It goes really nicely with the MAC lip liner in Soar.
- MAC Kinda Sexy – Described as a neutral pinky rose with a matte finish. This shade actually shows up as a nude with peach undertones on my lips. It’s another great nude that goes with every look.
Other favorite shades that are not neural include Lady Danger, Coral Bliss (perfect for summer) and Rebel.
Now tell me what are your favorite MAC lipsticks? Do you prefer one finish over another?
