MAC Crème Cup Lipstick

 
 


I have wanted to try MAC lipstick for so long now… I must have read hundreds of blog posts and reviews raving about the brand and seen countless adverts for their amazing products, but due to not having a MAC counter in my home town and strangely not coming across one on my travels I was put off making an order without sampling the products first.

But I got lucky! On a recent trip to duty free my mum bought this lipstick and unfortunately for her she decided that she didn’t like the shade when she got home – so fortunately for me I ended up being the happy owner J

I am no longer a MAC virgin and now fully understand what all the hype is about! This is probably one of the best lipsticks I have tried. It’s everything I look for in a lipstick – moisturising, compact, long-wearing and it has just the right amount of pigmentation. I also love the sweet vanilla smell which adds a nice touch.
 
 

Crème Cup is a light, pinky-nude shade which reminds me of an old Rimmel lipstick I used to have called blush. I think the colour is best suited to a light-medium skin tone which is my colour, and looks great when worn with a hint of bronzer and a shimmery pink or peach blusher.

Now I have sampled the lipstick for myself I am keen to delve deeper in to the world of MAC and splash out on a few products and purchase some other lippie shades so that I can start my own mini collection :-)

Have you tried any MAC lipsticks or other products? What do you recommend?
