MAC Creme Cup Lipstick

Mac Creme Cup Lipstick Review L'amour Josie
When it comes to lipstick, if I'm looking for an impressive shade range full of bold pinks, browns and reds, MAC is my go to brand. Creme Cup is a lipstick that has been on my radar for the last couple of years, but had never caught my attention enough for me to buy it until I recently swatched it in store. It's one of those "my lips but better" shades, which although not an immediate stand out, come autumn is a welcome relief after a few days of berry lips.

Creme Cup is the lipstick that I'd turn to if I wanted a polished, natural look; it's the perfect lipstick for day to day wear. It's a natural pink shade with blue undertones, which doesn't look too cool toned on my lips. I've surprised myself with how often I've been using Creme Cup. Although it doesn't look to be anything special in the bullet, I've been favouring this pink shade over my usual go-to nudes.

Creme Cup is formulated in MAC's Cremesheen finish, meaning that it's a lightweight, creamy lipstick which isn't overly pigmented. I like that this isn't a matte finish - it adds to the natural look - but I'm not overly impressed by the lasting power of Creme Cup. I have to reapply this lipstick throughout the day, but luckily given the shade, any fading isn't too obvious.

Creme Cup is a pretty pink lipstick which makes a nice alternative to the harsh nudes and red shades which tend to do the rounds in Autumn. I can see this being a lipstick which I'll wear right through until Spring, and I'm happy that I finally added it to my collection.

  22. I love the shade but I'm not sure if it would suit my skin colour. But it's more like a gloss with a bit of colour from your description? Might give it a go and see :)
