Review: MAC 'Creme Cup' Cremesheen Lipstick

Finally, a new addition to my slowly-growing MAC lipstick collection! This is a shade that i've had my eye on for a while, after seeing it swatched on many different blog posts. For this reason, I won't bore you with an stupidly-long post!

Since I was given a makeover at my local Benefit counter where I was shown that smokey eyes can actually look good on someone with small eyes and lids, i've been desperate to find a perfect nude lip colour to compliment dramatic eye makeup without making it look too intense - and I think i've finally found it!

Creme Cup is part of the cremesheen lipstick range which boasts a creamy moisturing texture, keeping your lips soft during usage. The shade is described on the MAC website as "light blue pink", but I consider it a nude/pink making perfect for a natural daytime look or as I said above, to compliment dramatic eyes.

As this shade isn't a limited edition it comes in the iconic, sleek MAC lipstick tube and has a gorgeous vanilla scent that reminds me of an old fashioned sweet shop.

*With flash*

This is my perfect nude/pink lip colour, terrifically understated and complimentary to a effortless daytime look. It's such a sweet colour, which I feel would look great on anyone. I have a feeling this will be one of those fail-safe colours that you'll know will go with everything. Ever since purchasing,  this has been a permanant fixture in my handbag incase I forget to apply a colour or put a lipstick in my bag. I am completely in love with this shade, and it lasts hours before having to reapply! I would most definitely recommend this for a simple daytime lip colour.

You can purchase Creme Cup or any of the other MAC Cremesheen lipsticks for £14 from your local MAC counter or on their website here.
