Mac Nude Lipstick Swatches: WOC Friendly

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I had a request to share my Mac nude lipstick collection. Below are the shades that I would consider nude on my NC50 complexion. I have a variation of skin-tone nudes, brownish nudes, as well as pinky nudes. Some, when worn have to be toned down with a liner, while others can be worn alone. 

Creme D' Nude, Fresh Brew, Half n Half, *Call My Bluff


High Tea, Velvet Teddy, Honey Flower, Viva Glam Gaga 2

*Lush Amber, Viva Glam V, Peachstock, *5N

Freckletone, *Empowered, Jubilee, Honeylove

 Shy Girl, *Brave New Bronze, *Spice, *Salute

 *Spice flower, *Marquise d', Fanfare, Lovelorn

Bare Again (SS), Can't Get Enough (SS), Till Tomorrow (PL), Hug Me




* means Limited Edition
SS means Sheen Supreme
PL means Pro Longwear

I also have Innocence Beware and a swatch can be found HERE. And lastly, one of my favorites, which I happen to be completely out of, Touch. It's an amazing brown nude for me. A staple! I will definitely pick up another one on my next Mac visit. 

All of the shades are great, but the ones I reach for the most are Half n Half, Bare Again, Lovelorn, Hug Me, Fresh Brew, Peachstock, Velvet Teddy, Creme d' Nude, and Touch.


What are your favorite Mac nude lipsticks?

@Your Cosmetic Ally, Joanne lol Fresh Brew was one of my first nudes by MAC! I was on my search to find "the one" and that's how I ended up with so many. I think Peachstock may just be it :)

Hi Helena thanks for such an awesome post, I'm also in search of my perfect nude lippie, I'm favoring Fresh Brew so far. I picked up Viva Glam V from a blog sale and I was wondering if you could recommend a lipliner(if you think it needs one)to go with Viva Glam V or is that one that can be worn alone.

@S. Wallace Fresh Brew is a fav of mine! Viva Glam V can totally be worn without a liner, in fact that's one of my put on and go shades. For the shades that I do pair with a liner I use Mac Cork more than anything. NYX Cocoa is another one I reach for and is really similar to Cork, but at a lesser price of course. They both seem to work well with my NC50 complexion. Hope that helps :)
