20 thoughts on “Look Book – What would you pair MAC 3N Lipstick with?

  1. Shefali

    I pair it with everything! I haven’t found a look yet – daytime, evening, smokey, natural…that doesn’t work with this lipstick for me! One of the things that I love it with is Pearl Sunshine beauty powder (from Barbie Collection). The beauty powder makes the lipstick stand out nicely.

    Top 3n with :Ample pink” PLUSHglass…FOR the most polished look ever (lips to die for).
    As for the eyes go for a bold brown look: Cookies and cream
    Highlight: Modest tone or vanilla e/s
    Lid: all over-modest tone e/s
    middle- bronze e/s
    outer < – espreseso e/s

    blush: tenderling or for more pop coy girl

    I have NC 25 skin and brown eyes

      I like the bold brown approach, too!

      I go a bit reddish-brown, with Embark as the darkest color over my lid, gradually getting lighter as you go up, shading into Soft Brown and Brule for the highlight. Then, I blend a touch of A Little Folie on the center of lid and line with dark brown liner.

      For blush, yeah Tenderling is great, and for lipglass I like White Magic.

    • This is an awesome suggestion, Chicalola! Thanks!

    I love using 3N to set off a bright or colorful lid! Here it is topped with Saplicious lip gelee, with day-wearable light teals and blues on the lid:

    i love this color…i would do a justene jaro look with this one…!!! smokey eyes, fake lashes, pinkish iridescent powder on my cheeks, & a pink lipliner!

    I would smoke my eyes with blacktrack, and carbon. I would put pink swoon on my cheeks with a brush of belightful. Then I would line my lips with hover and blend it in with the 3N lipstick and the 2N lipgloss over it. HOTT!

    Mmm.. 3N lipstick with Moonbathe l/g for nude lips or 3N lipstick with Flashtronic l/g for darker lips. I love both and I can’t decide.

  7. Nic

    I like my N3 with a simple MAC Eye Colour Look for example Sunday Best on the lid and Star Violet in the crease or Next to Nothing and Satin Taupe.

  8. Stephanie

    I usually pair my 3N lipstick with Clinique’s Raspberry Lipgloss for the extra shine. For my cheeks, I use MAC’s Vervalicious Irridescent Powder.

  9. sophia

    I have 2N I think it makes me look too pale. Maybe I should get the 3N…

  10. Stephanie

    I’ll use 3N with gingerroot lipliner and nymphette.
