mac creme d'nude

Thursday, September 12, 2013
I tweeted the other day that Mac lipsticks bring me a strange sense of satisfaction, and I couldn't have strung together a better sentence of how I feel. Because I'm only 15 and don't have lots of money rolling in at the end of the month, when I buy Mac products I feel happy and very satisfied. I walked into Mac knowing I wanted a nude lipstick, but had no idea where to start. When I walked in, lots of the sales assistants were waiting around and I wasn't asked for the help that I needed. When I asked the lady to get me this lipstick, she seemed very snobbish and stuck up, so my experience wasn't the best and I left feeling a little dis-heartened.

When I walked away from the counter, I somehow ended up with this lipstick in my hand. I physically can not go into a makeup store like Mac and not want to buy anything, so I picked this up. To be honest, I really dislike it. Because I am so pale, it looks too orangey-concealery and golden on my lips. I wish I'd have picked up Creme Cup which is more of a pinky nude rather than golden and beige.

One of the only things I like about this lipstick is the finish. This is a Cremesheen formula and it applies like a dream. It feels more like a lip butter than a lipstick and does not drag along this lip at all. I suppose this really was my fault essentially, because I spent £15 on something I don't like without doing my homework! I also love the smell of MAC lipsticks. They smell like vanilla and I love it when my makeup smells nice when I'm applying it!

I've found that when I wore this, it lasted 2-3 hours. The time that it lasts is good for a Cremesheen finish, so I don't usually mind reapplying it. Overall, I'm not really happy with my whole MAC experience, and wish I could swap for Creme Cup! Oh the downfalls of having pale skin. :(


  1. And this lipstick smells great! This is my absolut firs-and favourite lipstick. Great review I love it.

  2. What a pretty nude lipstick, I've always wanted a lipstick in a color like this!

  3. It's a shame it didn't work on your skintone /:
    I wish some ladies on the Mac counters were nicer cause I've heard so many complaints about them.
    Thankfully I never had a bad experience on the counter I go, they are super nice! xx

    1. I know :(
      For the majority of the time they're lovely but not today unfortunately! :( xx

  4. I've always found the girls in MAC to be so snobby! Glad it wasn't just me who felt like that. I can't go anywhere near a nude lipstick, to pale! x


    1. Glad it wasn't just me either! Me too - they definitely have to be more pinky than beige x

  5. I have the same pale skin problems with finding nude lipsticks, but this does look nice on you! xx

    1. It's horrible trying to find one! Especially when there are £15 a go :( I'm not keen :( xx
