Let’s all be honest for a moment – We love NUDE! Especially in lipstick form… I’d even say that it’s the most popular colour spectrum and the one most girls go for. So do I; they are great for the everyday life. Let me introduce you to my MAC Nude family.

So which one is my favourite? Oh dear, a mother loves all their children equally…right? But I do generally prefer matte and satin finishes because they are more pigmented and tend to stick longer. I’m also not a very big fan of glittery, shimmery lips, no matter what colour range I go for 🙂
I thought it’s easier to see if I swatch them for you, so here we go:
Faux (Satin) – A lovely bright(er) nude with a slight pinkish undertone… you know like this dusty pink. Really amazing formula, I love the satin finish lipsticks from MAC. I usually wear it to my day job.
Velvet Teddy (Matte) – Oh my it’s THE shade of the year probably. Only one thing needed to say – Kylie Jenner! Gorgeous brown lipstick with a cool undertone. Beautiful on the lips, perfect for day as for night!
Mehr (Matte) – Latest purchase and obsession. This one has the most “pinkish” undertone and is flattering my lips perfectly. It seems like my natural lip colour, just a few shades darker. Looks gorgeous and natural.
Syrup (Lustere) – This one is not very pigmented and just gives that little extra shine with a touch of pinkish nude colour. Lustere is my least favourite finish but this one is great for every day use.
Brave (Satin) – Love at first sight! This one also has a pinkish warm undertone and is a little bit brighter and less pigmented than Mehr.
Oxblood (Matte, Limited Edition) – From the Toledo collection, a beautiful peachy brown lipstick. Quite pigmented and also the brightest or let’s rather say peachiest nude I have.
Bad Girl Riri (Matte, Limited Edition) – I’m gonna cry when this one finishes. A taupe-nude, quite dark brown. Looks great on brunettes or if you have an olive or rather darker skin tone.
Verdict? I’m obsessed with lipsticks and these are only the nudes. I personally prefer the ones with the pinkish undertones because it flatters my lips the most. If I want to stick out a little bit more, then I go for the darker ones like Velvet Teddy or Bad Girl Riri.
