Review: MAC Creme Cup Lipstick

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.
Continuing my MAC lipstick obsession with another pink shade added to my mini collection — MAC Creme Cup. This is a much raved about shade in the beauty world which intrigued me even more. From the swatches online, I didn’t think it would suit my NC30-35 skintone that well, fearing it might wash me out like other light pink colors I’ve tried. But the hoarder/curious cat in me still wanted to give it a try. Creme Cup is a light blue pink that I believe is very soft and wearable for most skintones (but not for all natural lip colors). It’s not too bright nor too flashy as Viva Glam Nicki, Snob or St. Germain which are all bright blue-toned pinks. It’s a subtle shade that is buildable as it isn’t overpoweringly opaque. I bought it thinking it would pull off a great pinky nude shade but when I wore it, I say I would classify it more as a pink than a nude. For the texture, I am not quite a fan of the cremesheen finish as I often have dry lips and it accentuates the dryness like no other! It sinks into the tiniest cracks and patchness of dryness so I make sure to scrub my lips first and put balm when using this. However, for those that don’t have this dryness problem, this is a creamy and moisturizing lipstick that has enough shine you can skip the lip gloss. Staying power is an hour or two at most. You need to bring this in your bag to reapply often. My next posts will probably all be lipstick-related as I have no time to photograph new products I snagged before giving birth. Baby Selene is waking up every hour or two and I’ve become a milk machine. I find it perfect to wear for an everyday look, although I can’t skip the concealer and a bit of powder to pull it off well. Otherwise, I would look too ashy. All in all, I like this lipstick a lot but I’m loving its other cousin – MAC Angel more. Next review will be on that plus a comparison!
BTW, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE WARM WELCOME & CONGRATULATIONS for baby Selene in the previous post. Much much appreciated though I can’t comment back on each reply as of
yet. Sending all the love back, ladies! ❤

    I love this baby pink cremesheen- the texture looks lovely and surprisingly it doesn’t wash you out at all! It is a beautiful for a pale lip look 🙂 Congratulations on baby Selene!

    Wonderful color! Looks great on you!

    Very soft and pretty shade for you! I agree that cremesheens accentuate dry patches though.

    I just stumbled across your blog and love your layout! You are fabulous and adorable and are most certainly a makeup guru! I know you may not have a ton of time now, as you are a new mommy (Selene is lovely!), but if you have time and feel so inclined, I am hosting a blogging contest through the month of February! Here are the rules:

    Congrats again!

    More of pink than nude which is how I like it. Wonder how this shade would look on me. xD

    I’ve tried both and I prefer the Angel lipstick. Hope you can also do a review about the Freckletone. 🙂

    Also, congratulations on the new baby!
