Like the perfect pair of skinny jeans, a flattering everyday-anywhere nude lipstick should be a staple in everyone’s makeup wardrobe. Whether you want to downplay you lip shape, love natural-looking makeup, or need a neutral counterpart to a bold eye effect, a nude lip look is something you can’t give a miss. Here are a few nice MAC nude shades that has clearly captured the interest of most stylistas!
1. MAC Hug me – MAC describes Hug Me as flesh pink. MAC Hug Me is a beige-peachy pink lustre finish lipstick. It has the perfect amount of neutral pink, warm caramel and beige-peach shade in it to look like a nude lipstick that still has character and looks soft and pretty. It’s the kind of color that looks nice on all skin tones. On warmer and medium skin tones it really is the perfect nude. Does not wash you out, just gives you that polished nude lip look. On lighter skin tones, it’s more of a soft neutral pink nude, but extremely pretty!
2. MAC Kinda Sexy – MAC Kinda Sexy lipstick is a beige pink matte finish lip color. It is best for those with light skin tones and a great color when paired with dark eye makeup. it’s a nude with the perfect mixture of orange, pink and brown tones. The formula is matte but actually it has a pleasant sheen to it and doesn’t look flat. The shade was opaque but very comfortable to wear and not drying at all. The colour was just right-not too pale and perfect for day or night.
3. MAC Cherish – Cherish is a rich, creamy beige nude. It has an unbelievably smooth and creamy feel with a light glossy shine. I love it, because it’s well-pigmented (goes for most MAC lipsticks I guess) and gives a nearly full coverage on my lips. Cherish is one of the nude lipsticks complementing a really dramatic, smoky eye makeup. It works well to complement the look without competing with it.
4. MAC Velvet Teddy – MAC Velvet Teddy is described as a deep-tone beige despite looking darker and more brown in tube. For those with more pigmented lips, they come out browner. For those with less pigmented lips, it will be more like a pinky beige. This one is for fair to fair-medium skintones. It will wash out tones darker than NC 40!
