5 Mac neutral lipsticks you need in your life

DSC_4368It 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

DSC_4383Viva 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.


DSC_4395This 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.

Velvet Teddy

DSC_4404This 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

Creame cup

DSC_4407This 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.

DSC_4411Looking 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
