The 3 nude mac lipsticks you need

Friday, 5 May 2017


I'm not a big lipstick wearer - something I really want to change. I don't have those super plump lips and I'm not quite brave enough to wear bold colours. I'm slowly easing my way into the lipstick world with the occassional nude, and if I'm feeling really glam, I will hunt down my red lippies for special occasions. Now, I'm not going to lie, these are not only the 3 nude mac lippies I own, but the only 3 mac lipsticks I own full stop. But nonetheless, they're definitely lipsticks you need in your collection!


Left to right/ Top to bottom: Creme Cup // Velvet Teddy // Mehr

First up is Creme Cup. This is a cremesheen lippy which is the perfect light pink shade for everyday wear. It is almost leaning towards the barbie-pink colour which I love! When applied, it's slightly opaque with a nice shine and not too drying. Out of the three, this probably has the least lasting power because of its formula, but because of the lighter shade it's easy to apply throughout the day without the need of a mirror! Next is the highly-raved Velvet Teddy. I'm sure you've heard it all before, but you're going to hear it again. Velvet Teddy is a matte lippy, in a dark nude, slightly brown tone. It glides on beautifully and isn't too drying, although when my lips are having their dryer moments I like to stay clear, just in case! Mehr is the last of the three. A beautiful darker nude with a hint more pink than velvet teddy, this is another matte shade. Despite being a bit more bold, it still works for everyday wear! Again the formula is lovely and only needs reapplying a couple of times throughout the day.

I feel like this little trio gives all the options for your daily nude. You've got your light, glossy shade, your in the middle and your slightly darker and bolder option. What one would you go for?

  8. Nice review of the lipsticks Lucy! As a black girl, it can be very difficult to find a suitable nude lipstick but I've heard that Velvet Teddy looks great on all skin tones. Must give it a try sometime. xx

  15. Velvet Teddy and Mehr are my favs! I'm afraid that Creme Cup would be a bit lighter on my skin tone but I'll be sure to try it on in store next time :) x

  17. I adore the look of Velvet Teddy! I've been on the lookout for a drugstore-priced dupe, but I may treat myself some time if I can't find an alternative.
