I’ve strategically put nude in inverted commas, by virtue of the fact that a couple of these shades don’t strictly fit into the nude spectrum but I still see them as such! I’m not a real MAC go-er but with such an overwhelmingly wide array of shades available, I thought it would be nice to do an edit, so as to keep things simple and paired down.
Although I love all of the shades featured,’jubilee’ is unsurpassed as a brown-based nude. While most of its browny-nude counterparts are matte, jubilee’s lustre finish imparts a beigy-pink sheen to the lips and pairs nicely with almost any makeup look.
Interestingly, while loved by many, the finished look of ‘velvet teddy’ is really dependent upon your skin tone. On myself, it is quite dark with an almost terracotta hue, but on my sister’s lips (who is a lot less fairer than I), it is a lot more pink-ish.
By way of the yellow-based pink undertones, ‘fanfare’ is a really brightening shade and the cremesheen finish makes for a really comfortable every day kinda lipstick.
If your preferences lie with milky bubblegum-pink shades, ‘please me’ is a really beautiful muted rosy-pink. It is however, matte, and so if you’re looking for something a little more moisturising, lovelorn’s cool, blue-based pink hue and lustre finish might just be the ticket.
Have you tried any of these? Do you have a favourite nude lip product from MAC? Jess x
