5 MAC Lipstick Favourites | THE WINTER EDIT

Leave a Comment
Hello All,

I am so excited to start blogging again it really is one of my favourite things to do. i thought I would kick 2016 off with a post about my everyday lipsticks, now I am the biggest fan of nude lipsticks and tend to be more drawn to Brown toned nudes more than pink tones however I do have a variety and will do a complete lipstick collection in a future post.

I tend to wear nude lipsticks more than any other shade as I believe they suit me more than brighter tones, also for work I like to tone my make up down and keep it more on the neutral side, however their is ONE bright toned lipstick that I could not resist adding to my top 5!

So from L - R we have:
BRAVE - A satin finish nude lipstick with a pink undertone, I like to pair this lipstick with a lipliner as for me it is quite sheer and I find that it can mute out your natural lip line if used alone. It is extremely creamy which is brilliant as in winter times lips can become quite sensitive and be prone to becoming dry. 
LICKABLE - My brighter winter favourite this is a pink lipstick with blue undertones ( making your teeth appear whiter which is always a bonus ) it's a creamsheen finish and glides on to the lips perfectly. Due to its boldness for me I don't need to add a lipliner with this, I feel that it also makes the lips appear more fuller. Some would say that Lickable is similar to GIRL ABOUT TOWN which it is if you see the lipsticks from afar however they are not LICKABLE is lighter and has small glitter particles. 
TWIG - This is my favourite nude to date, it is one of my most used lipsticks and is my go to shade on a daily basis if there is any shade in my handbag it is twig, it is from the satin range and gives a semi matte finish without leaving the lips looking or feeling dry which I am a huge fan of. This shade stays all day and looks great with a bronze eyeshadow look. The super rich pigments ensure you only need one coat with its high quality colour pay off. 
MEHR - A newbie in my MAC lipstick collection having only worn it a few times doesn't mean I am not a huge fan. It has Pink and Blue undertones with great colour pay off. Mehr is a matte finish but is not drying, with this shade I would recommend using a lip liner.
VELVET TEDDY - The infamous Velvet Teddy which again is a matte shade but not drying at all I love pairing this with boldly bare lipliner also from MAC it is full of beautiful brown tones ( my favourite ) It is not to dark so suits a variety of skin tones so it is one for everybody.
