Who doesn't love a nude lippy ay'?!
I'm very much a nude lipstick wearer, and always lean towards neutral shades when doing my makeup ( and of course, who doesn't love MAC?). I find that when it comes to MAC lipsticks, there are staple shades that everyone has heard of especially when it comes to nudes. My top 5 are hope fully a little different to the usual 'Angel', 'Creme Cup, 'Fleshpot' shades that we all know and love!
My favourite finish of MAC lipsticks are the 'Cremesheen' (as is most people's), but the glossy finish is just irresistible and seems to last longer than the other finishes. Enjoy my top 5 below!
1. Pure Zen
Pure Zen is a peach toned nude that really flatters most skin tones as it is a little darker than most of the fleshy nudes. This shade looks great with a smokey eye or even subtle brown shadows. A winner for everyone in my opinion.
2. Creme d'nude
Most people have heard of this shade, but I had to include it because its like the acceptable/lipstick version of 'foundation lips' (bringing back the '09 makeup disasters there) but i love it! This colour is a really light fleshy colour that is so versatile to any look you want to wear!
This lipstick is one of the 'Lustre' finishes meaning its more sheer than the other lipsticks but means you can build the colour to the intensity you want. The shade is a 'your lips but better' pinky nude with a gloss, making it really flattering. So gutted my went through the wash because I've had to de-pot it and apply it with a brush, but i was not ready to throw it away!
4. Shanghai Spice
Although a nude shade, this is much darker and more brown toned than the other, maybe a little orangey too! Also the name is perfect because it suits the shade to a tee!
5. Japanese Maple
This is my favourite ever MAC lipstick, I just find it the perfect shade! A little fleshy, but a little pinky and a little peachy all at the same time, what more can you ask for!?
