MAC Lipsticks | Top 3 Nudes

From left to right - Please Me, Sandy B, Yash
Nude lipsticks are a fairly recent addition to my lipstick collection, until a few months ago I had never even tried a nude lipstick on, I always went for pink as my go to shade. I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to try out a nude shade as they are so popular. I finally decided to experiment with some nude shades in MAC and now I absolutely love them! I currently have three in my collection so I thought I would share these with you in a blog post.

Please Me – Technically Please Me isn’t a nude it's a pink, but as I normally go for brighter pink shades this definitely comes under the nude category for me. It is very subtle pink shade, described by MAC as a muted rosy tinted pink. It is a matte formula, which has quickly become my favourite type of lipstick from MAC. It is very creamy, long wearing and highly pigmented. Some may find the matte formula quite drying, it may be if you naturally have dry lips, but I don’t find this a problem and if it does feel slightly dry I just pop a coat of lip balm or lip gloss over the top. I like Please Me so much because it is the perfect toned down shade of pink that doesn’t clash if you are wearing different colour clothes, but still gives you a pop of colour which can be especially nice during the summer months.  I have written a full review of this lipstick here.
Sandy B – Sandy B is a pale peachy pink colour with a golden shimmer running through it and a frost finish. I have absolutely fallen in love with this shade and it is definitely a summer favourite of mine. The formula is very moisturising and it can be applied lightly for a subtle sheer more day time finish, or layered for more of a dramatic effect. I find when I build this colour up it is absolutely gorgeous and the golden shimmer makes it perfect for an evening look. The frost finish means it is not the most pigmented lipstick, which is why I prefer to layer it a couple times and it is not as long lasting as a matte formula. It is very creamy and moisturising so may be a good choice if you suffer with dry lips. When applied this lipstick gives such a lovely warmth and healthy glow to the lips –it really brightens the skin which is why I think it is the perfect summer shade. The peachy pink shade is natural and neutral enough to be classed a nude lipstick and it will go with almost anything. I have written a full review of Sandy B here.
Yash – This was a bit of an unplanned purchase, I originally went out to buy Honeylove as I had seen a lot of good reviews about it, but unfortunately it was sold out and the lady in MAC recommended I try Yash. It is a slightly darker nude than Honeylove so I wasn’t sure at first, but after trying it on I really liked it. I actually prefer it to Honeylove as it is a slightly orange tinted light brown nude which I have found is very flattering with a tan. It could possibly be too heavy for those of you with a fair complexion, but I have been continuing to wear it since my tan has faded and I still really like it, so it just depends what you feel suits you. Like Please Me, Yash is a matte formula so again could be drying on the lips. I don’t find it drying at all, it is very creamy and easy to apply. It lasts really well on the lips and doesn’t bleed at all which is my favourite thing about matte lipsticks. It has become my go to everyday shade for work as it goes with everything and is easy to apply in the morning and not worry about for a few hours.

Do you have any of these nudes? What are you favourite nude lipsticks?
