MAC | THE 90s SHADES10:00 AM
90s lip colours are absolutely everything to me at the moment. They’re all I wear. I’m all about the moody, grungy, earthy tones that were revived by the great Kylie Jenner, and I’ve truly started to embrace this style. My wardrobe consists of mainly blacks and greys, and I’ve built a bit of a MAC lipstick collection that compliments my dark colour scheme. Since I like to think I’m a bit of a grunge connoisseur, I wanted to share my top 90s shades with you!
Hello, MAC’s most famous shade ever. If you’ve not heard of Velvet Teddy, you’ve most likely been living under a rock. It’s the lightest of the bunch, but is still beautifully earthy and beigy on the lips. This is my everyday lip right now, and I just love the warmth it gives my makeup.
Faux is the pinkiest shade, but it’s still muted and mauvey and beautiful beyond belief. This was actually the first 90s shade I picked up (because when I went to buy Velvet Teddy, it was out of stock). Faux has a slight shimmer, but again, it’s wonderfully wearable and is a perfect everyday 90s nude.
I picked this baby up on my 21t birthday about a month ago, and it’s so pretty. It’s definitely darker than the previous two, but it’s much woodier and warmer, whilst still being earthy and flattering. The matte finish is like velvet, and I’ve bee rocking this for dinners, drinks and evenings out lately.
The lipstick version of MAC’s incredible lip pencil really rocked my world. It’s ten out of ten for pigmentation, comfort and longevity. The colour is so stunning; probably my favourite of the bunch. It’s darker again, and therefore I love it for evenings. The brownish, mauvey tones compliment my paler complexion, though I know it looks beyond beautiful on my darker skinned friends too.
Paramount is the most stunning 90s red lip, ever. You get that? EVER! This brick red shade with warm brown undertones screeeams 90s glam, and warms up my skintone perfectly whilst packing a dressed up, dolled up punch. This is my go-to red lip now, and again, the matte finish is flattering as anything and feels comfy on the lips.
I’ll definitely be doing some lip swatches in the future, simply because these shades are beautiful and I really want to show off how gorgeous these shades all are. My 90s picks are stunning, and they really are my favourites of my entire MAC collection. Which is your favourite? Are there any other 90s lipsticks I should try?
Lots of love,
