Mac Lipsticks: The Nudes

Over the past year there, especially with Kylie Jenner's influence there has been a real surge of the 90's nude lip and I think I have my bases covered. From pinks to browns, mattes to sheer I have found my six favourite Mac nudes. If you want to see other shades from Mac lipstick collection I did do a swatch post which I will link here, my collection has grown since that last post so not all my shades are featured but there are about 20 other shades to have a look at. 

From left to right is - Creme Cup, Mehr, Patisserie, Velvet Teddy, Kinda Sexy, Jubilee. 

Creme Cup - This is a Cremesheen finish and is an everyday pale pink that looks beautiful when paired with a grey smokey eye. The formula makes it super comfortable to wear and just looks effortless. 

Mehr - A matte shade that falls into the Kylie Jenner scale of colours, a deep neutral pink that on me is a my lips but better shade. 

Patisserie - A lustre that is fairly sheer but evens out the tone of my lips and to me is very similar to Kinda Sexy in terms of its shade, it seems to be the more glossy version so when paired together they look really pretty. 

Velvet Teddy - Probably the most popular Mac lipstick of 2014, this matte shade is a simple nude brown but it just makes the lips look bigger and really amps up an everyday makeup look. 

Kinda Sexy - Again another matte finish, this is a warmer toned brown and on me has a look of peach in it, I've been wearing this alot recently with a copper toned eye and the two just look lovely together. 

Jubilee - This was my most used lipstick in 2014 summer, it just goes with every makeup look so in the summer when I dont wear very much it just gives it a finishing touch. It's quite a mid/light brown/pink nude with a neutral undertone. 

So that is it for my favourite neutrals, I have a feeling that to some having all six may seem unnecessary but in my eyes they are all completely different...
