MAC Myth Lipstick
MAC Myth Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Myth Lipstick

MAC Myth Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, flesh-toned slightly peach-pink tinged nude. Myth has a satin finish, which means it has a very creamy, opaque look with a low-level sheen and on shimmer. It gives my lips incredibly full coverage color, and the creaminess gives it a nice, defined look without the aid of a lip liner, too–always a nice bonus! It’s similar to Fleshpot, but it’s not quite as fleshy or as light.  It’s lighter and not as peachy as Peachstock, as well.  They’re in the same family, though!

Is this the right nude lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

MAC Honeyflower Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Honeyflower Lipstick

MAC Honeyflower Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a warmed-up, peachy brown with an almost gold sheen to it. Honeyflower has a lustre finish, so it has that slightly frosty, shimmery-sheen look to it. It is surprisingly pigmented–definitely one of the better lustre finishes I’ve tried–and goes on pretty opaque. I think this is a great shade for darker skin tones and warmer skin tones in particular.

MAC Creme d'Nude Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Creme d’Nude Lipstick

MAC Creme d’Nude Lipstick ($14.00) is a creamy, nearly opaque pink-toned fleshy nude. It’s warm enough to keep it from being too corpse-ish of a nude, and it’s definitely a popular favorite amongst Temptalia readers! (I wasn’t going to include it, because my store was out when I did my buying for Spring Season lipsticks, but due to the demand… I pestered my store until they found one for me!) It’s a cremesheen finish, so it has a creamier look without being too thick or having a lot of slip. Like most MAC lipsticks, it is vanilla-scented and wears for a few hours before fading.

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick ($14.00) is a creamy, full color coverage shade of pinked beige. It’s one of my favorite nude shades to pair with a smoky eye, because it has this natural pinkness to it that keeps it from making me look like I’m sporting corpse-lips (which aren’t usually so flattering on me). It has a very soft sheen, but there is no shimmer in it. I’d have to say that Velvet Teddy may be one of my favorite lipsticks from MAC (at least, from the permanent range)–the texture is just phenomenal.

If you could revamp MAC Lipstick, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?
