MAC: Creme Cup Lipstick
Perfectly priced between drugstore and premium brands, at £13.50, I think they definitely contenders for the best value for money in a lipstick.
I wanted to get a shade which was nude and natural looking and came out with something a bit different! Initially I thought this might have been a wrong choice as it was a bit too blue-toned for my skin and quite lilac looking in some lights. After a few wears I have really grown to love it. I find it is a nice natural looking pink; nude but with a bit of a difference. It is so easily wearable as it goes with a variety of make-up looks. I like to wear it a bit bolder with minimal eye make-up as it really makes your lips stand out; with heavier eye make-up, a simple coat of this can give your lips a subtle boost! I have found this to quickly become a staple in my handbag for a quick touch-up!
The formula itself is great - I can never complain with cremesheens. It glides over any dry parts of the lips and gives you that bit of needed moisture!
Have you bouught any new great lip products?
