When it comes to Mac, I’ve never been the kind to be all about it and have all the cult products from it. Before, I had only tried their Studio Fix foundation and Pro Longwear Concealer. While I tried them and enjoyed them for awhile, I found them both to be heavy and cakey on me. That was my impression of the line.
I decided to give them another shot and tired their Mineralize Skin Finish powder which I love and use without fail any time I wear makeup. From there, I have dabbled a bit more into their line and have tried (and falled in love with) their eye shadows and blushes. I would look at their lipsticks and just couldn’t seem to find any interest in them, as I’m not a real “lippie” type of person.
However, I’ve been on the hunt for that perfect nude, the kind I can wear with nearly any look.
I think I found it…
It’s a wonderfully warm pinky brown, which happens to go along with the trend of the whole Kyle Jenner thing. And before you think anything about it, I was not trying to mimic the look. It just so happens we have similar coloring and so my “nude” is her nude. Anyway.
It’s a satin finish but appears slightly matte on my lips. It’s very comfortable on my lips and glides onto my lips very smoothly. Sometimes I wear it with a Milani lip liner in Natural which makes it appear a bit darker but today I didn’t use a lip liner and am wearing it on it’s own.
I have naturally pigmented lips that are a mauvey (mauvy? mauvie?) brown so any color I put on tends to veer towards that or appears an entirely different color once applied. But this goes on nearly true to color in the tube and I could get away with one swipe across my lips but I go over them twice just to make sure.
Have I ever told you I don’t particularly care for the shape of my lips? I do appreciate the fact that they are naturally full, but the lower lip is a leetle crooked, in that one side is a bit fuller than the other. That’s why I don’t always do close ups of them. Anyway. That’s all.
So. I am happy to say that I love my first Mac lipstick!
What’s your go-to Mac lipstick?
