THOSE NUDES


From Right to Left: Fleshpot (satin), Myth (satin), Japenese Maple (cremesheen), Hue (glaze), Creme Cup (cremesheen), Myself (lustre)



If you're obsessed with nude lipsticks and you love MAC then this is the post for you! 

I ran to MAC this past weekend, because I had products to recycle. If you don't know about MAC's recycling program then you need to listen up! Any time you have 6 empties (or MAC products you don't like or use) you can take them Back To MAC for a free lipstick :). I've gotten most of my lipsticks this way. You can even de-pot MAC shadows and blushes and still return the containers. 

So on my most recent trip I picked up Fleshpot which is the lipstick I'm holding above. OMG! How did I not buy this color before?! I've heard many YouTubbers talk about Fleshpot, but I never picked one up. It's a very light nude, probably too light for darker skin tones, but it's right up my alley - I love a light nude! It's a satin so it's pretty matte...make sure to exfoliate & hydrate your lips before wearing.

The first picture above features all of the nude lipsticks in my collection. From left to right the colors go from darkest to lightest. I know it's hard to tell a huge variance, but if you are like me you understand every lipstick shade is vastly different haha! Names below are LEFT to RIGHT.
  1. Myself is the perfect color for fall - I actually haven't worn it all summer - I'm saving it for the first cool day of the season (which better be soon!)
  2. Creme Cup is pinker in tone and a beautiful color for various skin tones. A staple to any collection.
  3. Hue is my fav - see below.
  4. Japaneses Maple is almost identical to Myth, but it's a creemsheen so it's much less matte and honestly easier to wear.
  5. Myth is a cult favorite and more of an orangey nude (I know that isn't scientific).
  6. Fleshpot is my newest nude - see above. 

So which one is my all time favorite? That would be Hue
Hue is comparable to my favorite lipstick, Nude Vanille by Tom Ford, but a little less opaque and a little more on the pink side. I've actually gone through at least three. 

If I'm missing any cult favorites or you have a recommendation please let me know!
