My Favourite MAC Nude Lipsticks

I am a huge nude and dark nude lipsticks lover. Bright shades or pinky colours don’t suit my skin tone or my style and after a few years of trying out lippies, I finally figured out that dark pinks/reds as well as pinky browns were the ideal shades for me. A few weeks ago, I went to MAC and decided to splurge on these beautiful matte (and 1 satin) lipsticks as we all know how amazing they are. I know that some of you might think that they all look extremely similar – which they definitely do – but when you have an obsession like I do, you can never have enough lipsticks right? 😉

I bought Whirl, Twig, Taupe, Viva Glam II and Velvet Teddy. They go on so beautifully and creamy, plus the pigmentation is amazing. I personally like to line my lips with a MAC lip liner before going on with these. You definitely have to put lip balm beforehand as they can be a bit drying, which is normal for a matte lipstick. I also carry them in my purse for touch ups during the day. I cannot recommend them enough as they are so amazingly beautiful and go on with every makeup look you are going for!

Are you obsessed as I am with nude lipsticks? Which one do you recommend?

    These are awesome! Have you ever looked into Nudestix lip and cheek pencils? Great nude colors as well.

    I’m always on the hunt for a good nude, it’s not easy to find! I might have to try on Velvet Teddy.

      You should also check out their lip liners, they have such a gorgeous selection of nudes!

    Beautiful pics! I love Twig but it doesn’t look good on me. Maybe I’ll give Velvet Teddy a try 🙂

      Thank you! I spent a good 30 minutes choosing and trying out their different colours to make sure to find shades that fit perfectly for me 🙂 You should do that too!

    You literally described all the ones I love! I’m wearing Velvet Teddy now lined with Whirl Lipliner. Another one I love is Verve but it’s a satin finish not matte. Love this post <3

    J’adore Mocha (Satin) et Hug Me (Lustré). Ce sont mes nudes préférés de MAC :)xox

      Je ne suis pas très lustré, mais j’irais voir Mocha la prochaine fois que je vais chez MAC!😊

    Love Mac Lipsticks! I’ve got the Huggable Lipstick in Bare Hug in my bag now, which is a nice subtle peachy/orange. I usually consider more pink though. This one is nice because it does double duty. It’s a lipstick and it hydrates!

      MAC lipsticks are really nice, even the matte ones aren’t too drying! I wish I could pull of these kinds of colours. My collection is only composed of 1 type of shade haha

    Everyone was raving so much about Velvet Teddy last year (especially Asian girls similar to my skintone) that I couldn’t help and pick it up, but I also picked up Twig and Creme in Your Coffee and have found that those suit me better actually!

      It is funny because of all of these, Velvet Teddy is the one that suits me less! I chose it because it is a great colour to tone down my other lippies that are a bit too mauve/pink or red😊

      • May 24, 2016 / 3:57 pm

        Yeah! I feel like I need a super dramatic eye look to pull off Velvet Teddy. It’s not one I can just put on and make me look awakened immediately.

    Great choices! Lately my favorite lip pair is MAC’s Honeylove and Colourpop’s lip liner in Grunge. Amazing combo for a nude lip!

      Colourpop lippies are amazing, I have a few of their lip liners and just bought their ultra matte liquid lipsticks and I am addicted to them!

    “you can never have enough lipsticks right?”

    I totally agree with that but my wallet sadly doesn’t… 😛

      Haha same for mine too 😉 But they are great investments, the quality and the colour payoff is amazing!

    Love Viva Glam II, one of my favorite lipstick!
    You definitely need to try Ruby Woo!)

      I tried it and it is such a gorgeous classic red! Might have to put it on my next to-buy list 😉

    When I got my foundation matched last week at MAC, I asked her to finish my make up with a blusher and a lipstick. She chose the Viva Glam II for me, and I really liked it actually! She put it over Edge to Edge lipliner 🙂

      Haha I spoiled myself a little bit with these! They are worth every penny, MAC lipsticks are so gorgeous and of high quality 🙂
