5 Must-Have MAC Berry Lipsticks

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series

A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Craving lipstick is a soft, muted pinked up raspberry with a creamy, opaque texture.

Captive lipstick is a muted, dirty plummy berry shade with a pink tone to it. Semi-sheer, so it’s not quite as bold as some of the other berry lipsticks.

New York Apple lipstick is a raspberryish red shade. It could easily be categorized as a red or a berry red, but I find it leans a bit berry for me.

Temptalia Asks You

Do you wear one lip product or do you prefer to mix multiple products? Why/why not?

Temptalia's Answer.

I rarely wear just one. I just find I like mixing and matching lipsticks and glosses together ;)

Shy Girl lipstick is a fleshy, brighter pink that’s more pink than nude. It works well with brighter, bolder eyes, as well as pink/purple looks.

Creme Cup lipstick is a dirty pink lipstick with a very creamy, opaque formula, making it great for more pigmented lips.

Angel lipstick is a sheer, glossy light to medium pink shade with mostly neutral undertones.

Snob lipstick is a slightly opaque, cool-toned pink. This is a great shade for cooler tone complexions.

Temptalia Asks You

Do you save photos/looks you find online for later? Why/why not?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have a few saved, but I usually don’t copy looks so I don’t have any real reason to save them. Occasionally an ad or avant garde look will capture my attention, though! ;)
