It is only a recent occurrence that I have gotten into the whole neutral lipstick thing, but it is easy to say that since I began last September with my Velvet Teddy purchase, the dalliance into something new has become a bit of an obsession! In my defence, I am on the hunt for the perfect neutral lipstick for my wedding day, so it would be rude not to try different shades out.
Never one to not share my new loves, I thought I would share with you, 5 of my favourite neutrals from Mac. When it comes to lipstick, Mac will always have a spot in my heart. When it comes to a lipstick finish, I firmly believe that Mac satin finish lipsticks are worth every single penny. All these lipsticks cost €19.50.
Have a peak at the lipsticks below and if you can think of the perfect bridal lipstick I should try, leave a comment down below.
Viva Glam II
Viva Glam II is a very recent purchase, but my god it is a real beauty. Literally from the minute I put this on my lips it was love at first sight. This is a beautiful nude mauve colour, with the tiniest hint of shimmer. Like most of the lipsticks I have included in this post, it is a satin finish, so lasts really well on the lips. If you’re looking for the perfect 90s retro lipstick, then this is it! I like to pair it up with NYX Peekaboo pink lipliner.
This is another one of those lipsticks that Kylie Jenner claims she used to give her the oversized lip look.Hmmmm. Brave is a soft, rosy pink toned lipstick, with a satin finish. I absolutely adore this lipstick. Right now this is top of my list of possible wedding lipsticks. I love to wear Mac Edge to edge lipliner all over the lid, with Brave on top.
This is hands down my most worn lipstick in the last 6 months. I love this lipstick! Velvet Teddy is described as a deep toned beige colour with a matte finish to it. Do not be put off by the matte finish, as this is extremely comfortable to wear, glides on easily and as it is a matte, it is very long lasting. There is a small bit of drying on the lips, but nothing that is uncomfortable and to be honest, it is worth it for the longevity that a matte lipstick gives. I love to wear this with Mac Spice lipliner You can read a full review here
This lipstick is a serious cult classic.This is a creme sheen lipstick that feels quite creamy on first impression. It is a blue toned pink nude colour, which makes it perfect for Irish skin. I have worn this so much the past month. This is the perfect lipstick for day time. I love to wear it with Rimmel Eastend snob lipliner all over the lid and creame cup on top.
Looking for more of a pink toned neutral, then Snob is the colour for you. This is a light neutral blue toned pink. I find that it is a little on the cool toned, so I don’t use it as a day to day lipstick, but more of a summer time pop of pink. It is a a satin finish and lasts for ages on the lips. Be warned,this can look a little Barbie pink at times, but I love it. I wear it with Rimmel East end snob to line the lips
