So today is National Lipstick Day, and what a better way to celebrate than share my top 4 nude MAC lipsticks for brown skin with you!
MAC has always had an awesome range of lipsticks, but I’ve just recently noticed a few that have really been working with my skin tone. In this blog post, I’ll be letting you know how I feel about Toast & Butter, Velvet Teddy, Persistence and Whirl.
Toast & Butter is part of the Liptensity Lipstick collection which is a range of lipsticks with an enhanced amount of pigment for extreme colour intensity. Its a warm-cinnamon brown with a shiny-cream finish. If I’m feeling like a matte lip, I just dust a little translucent powder on top. This also lightens it a little.
Not only is the colour perfect but the formula is super hydrating (especially now that we’re in winter!)
Velvet Teddy is a contentious one! This lipstick was recommended to me as a nude lipstick for my skin tone by the sales assistant at the MAC counter. I feel that it’s a little too light for me as it pulls light pink. I can get away with this shade in winter (when my skin is a lil lighter), dabbed in the centre of a slightly darker lipstick or with a darker lipliner (chestnut by MAC is one I use often). I wanted to put this shade in here because it is a go-to recommendation – but there are others you should look at too! Keep scrollin’!
Persistence is a new find which I la-la-lave! It’s a warm-cinnamon matte brown and complements my skin tone well.
Whirl is a dusty-mauve nude for my skin tone and is perfect for winter! This is a bit more neutral than Persistence if you’re not into warm, bright lips.
