My Favourite Mac Nude Lipsticks

In the past few months I have become a huge mac lipstick fan and especially of their nude lipsticks. I very rarely wear anything other than nudes, unless I find my outfit better suits a plum or red in the Autumn & Winter seasons although nude shades pretty much go with anything and look very natural for day to day wear. MAC is the first place I call for lipsticks, and their selection of nude lipsticks is enough to make any make-up lover drool. So, today I'm going to share with you all my favourites. 

From left to right....

Velvet Teddy
This was my first ever mac lipstick and most definitely my favourite. Velvet Teddy is a matte formulae lipstick with a beigy-pink colour which can be a tad drying although I still continue to wear it because I love it so much. I wear this lipstick almost every other day because it is gorgeous! Definitely one that would work with all skin tones. 

I love this lipstick! It's a deeper pinky mauve with slight brown undertones.This is my Kylie lip. It's satin but not too shiny with just a nice sheen and If you want it matte you can just blot.  Its creamy formula makes it comfortable to wear (it doesn't even dry out my lips) and it smells amazing as all mac lipsticks do.

Honey Love
This is a matte lipstick with enough colour to keep it natural without making you look like your lips blend in with your face.  I can't imagine many skin tones that would suit this colour on its own because it's so pale. I'm convinced that Honey Love is one of those colours that is meant to be used either with a slightly darker liner or used with another matte lipstick to make ombre/3D fuller lips. 


I've never owned the lip liner but I gave into the whole Kylie Jenner craze and decided to buy this lipstick.  I absolutely love the colour and the formula isn't as drying. On my fair skin this is a dirty rose with a hint of brown which isn't something I would normally wear but I absolutely love it. This matte isn't hard to wear the way some mattes are either. 

This is my newest mac lipstick and whenever I want something on my lips that's as natural looking as possible but still gives a "finished" look to my overall make-up I reach for Modesty first thing. It's a beautiful muted neutral pink shade with just a hint of peachiness. I feel as though I can apply it without a mirror and not have to worry if the application is messy. 

What are your favourite nude lipsticks? Let me know. 


  1. Great pictures, and good description definatley persuaded me to try some of these, if you haven't you should try the viva glam 5 by mac

  2. This is great, thanks - I can never find the right nude lipstick, they're always too pale - I am now going to give Velvet Teddy and Modesty a go. I'm hopeless at finding the right colours so posts like this really help :)

    1. Im glad this post was useful for you. I find both Velvet Teddy and Modesty suit a variety of skin tones so hopefully you will love them as much as I do :)
