Top 5 Mac Lipsticks

Mac Lipstick | £15.50 | Link |

Like most beauty bloggers I have a soft spot for Mac lipsticks, they have this hold over me and as soon as I see a Mac counter a force grabs me and pulls me towards the lippies. Then I have to buy one (or three), it's the rules.

L-R: Brave, Crème In Your Coffee, Velvet Teddy, Crème Cup, Faux

I'm a huge fan of a nude lip so naturally my favourite Mac lipsticks are neutral, everyday colours because they're much more wearable on a day-to-day basis. I bloody love a bold lip too, I have plenty, but my top five are colours that I keep going back to and have reached holy grail status.

Brave - Satin, Pink-beige
Crème In Your Coffee - Cremesheen, Mid-tone pink brown
Velvet Teddy - Matte, Deep beige
Crème Cup - Cremesheen, Light blue pink
Faux - Satin, Muted mauve pink

L-R: Brave, Crème In Your Coffee, Velvet Teddy, Crème Cup, Faux
All these lipsticks are in Mac's permanent line and you need them in your collection. 
I tend to pick more of the Satin or Cremesheen formulas as they're really comfortable to wear, they glide smoothly onto the lips and are not drying. Velvet Teddy is a matte lipstick but I don't find it particularly drying or uncomfortable. It's a creamy consistency that doesn't tug on the lips during application and is pretty long-wearing.

Do you have any of these lipsticks? What are your favourite Mac lippies?


  1. I currently have 8 MAC lipsticks in my collection and counting haha! I have both Velvet Teddy and Creme in your Coffee, such gorgeous and wearable everyday shades. Creme Cup looks lovely!

  2. I only have 3 or 4 MAC lipsticks in my collection and I only really love one: SYRUP- my favourite ever but damn I wish it was in matte rather than the lustre finish as it doesn't last too long.
    Brave is very similar, I think I'll have a gander at that one soon.

    1. Ooo, I love Syrup too. Totally try Brave, it's lovely x

  3. These are beautiful shades! I love Velvet Teddy & Creme Cup!

  4. Brave looks good! I think I might have to try that next time I'm in the MAC store :) xx

  5. Hi can you tell me if Brave has a shimmer to it as I have bought it and it looks frosty in the tube was thinking of returning it and getting Faux instead or does Faux also have a shimmer?xx

    1. Brave doesn't have any shimmer, it's a satin so has a glossy finish but no shimmer, I don't wear frosty/shimmery lipsticks x
