MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup10:00 PM
“I should stop buying MAC lipsticks” said no girl ever, so naturally, when I was ambling through duty free (last year, late review!) I stopped to pick up one of these babies. I’m forever on the hunt for a not-too-subtle-but-not-too-vibrant pink lipstick, so when I asked the lovely lady on the MAC counter, she recommended Creme Cup over Please Me. I was immediately enamoured with the cool pink shade; it was love at first swatch!
It’s apparently a cremesheen, but I find it to be quite opaque and really hard-wearing. It’s creamy and smooth to apply, and doesn’t dry my lips out through the day. It’s one of the lip colours I chose over and over again when I had my pastel pink and purple hair, as I needed a lip colour that complimented the pale tones in my hair. It stays on like a dream and glides on evenly. It doesn’t need topping up for hours if I leave it alone, but after I’ve been eating or drinking, I do find I need to top it up a bit.
It's such a true pink shade; not too warm and not too cool. I find that I tend to gravitate towards peachy toned pinks, which really don't suit my skin tone, but this one is thankfully perfectly in the middle. I absolutely adore wearing this colour because I do get such a lot of compliments, and I think that this lipstick has made it into the Valentine's makeup shortlist because it's such a pretty, flirty pink!
I find this shade looks best with a subtle smokey brown eye and a winged liner, and although it doesn’t seem to stun other people with how bright a pink it is, I still feel like I don’t want to overload with the eye makeup and look OTT. This lippie is a dreamily creamy shade, and for the £15.50 price tag, I see why I can never leave a MAC counter alone! Creme Cup is a blogger favourite, and I’m no exception!
