Beauty: Top 5 MAC Nude Lipsticks

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

MAC Lipsticks are my favourite lipsticks to wear. I love a good drugstore dupe but over the past couple of years I've really grown to love nude lipsticks from MAC. I think they work so well with my skin tone and really make a difference to my everyday make-up routine. As it's come to the end of the year and there's a lot of 'top beauty' posts around I thought I'd share with you all my Top 5 MAC Nude Lipsticks.

I keep a nude lipstick and lip liner in my handbag everyday to touch up my lipstick and so I am never anywhere without a Mac lipstick at hand.

Mehr - is probably my most recent edition to my lipstick collection and it was due to watching Lily Pebbles' youtube videos. I already owned Soar lip liner and loved it and this is the perfect lipstick to go alongside it. It's quite a rosy-toned brown colour which I love when I want to make my lips stand out.

Velvet Teddy - This shade is quite possibly my FAVOURITE ever Mac lipstick and that's a bold statement. I know this is seen as one of the 'Kylie Jenner' shades but this shade I find really suits my skin tone and i've had so many compliments wearing this.

Cherish - I use this shade as my 'everyday' nude lipstick. This is the shade which I keep in my handbag and I use this shade the most. It's dark enough to make a difference to your lips but it's great as it's really moisturising and looks great with a no make-up, make-up look.

Taupe - This shade and Persistence are my two favourites at the moment. Taupe is a great brown toned nude and looks great against my skin tone. It look quite light on the bullet but it's actually quite dark (as you can see from the swatches photo) and really makes a difference to my everyday make-up looks.

Kinda Sexy - This was the first MAC lipstick I ever bought about 4 years ago now. I absolutely love this shade as it's quite light but still makes a difference to my daily looks. I love this nude and I think this is a great shade for those of you with lighter skin-tones as it's dark but not too over the top.

As you can see from the swatches each shade is very different. Mehr is pink toned, Velvet Teddy is a medium toned (but still quite dark) nude, Cherish is a nourishing lipstick and a little bit glossy, Taupe is matte and quite dark and then Kinda Sexy is pink toned.
What do you think of these MAC lipsticks? Do you recommend any colours to try out?
Which colour is your favourite?
