MAC Cremeteam Cremesheen Lipsticks Lip Swatches


Cremesheen lipsticks from Cremeteam lip swatches! 🙂 I do feel Cremesheen lipsticks to be well-pigmented, but the texture can be a little drying for some. I definitely recommend layering your lips with some balm 10-15 minutes prior (then blotting it off) so your lips take the color better. Creme In Your Coffee surprised me with how pretty it was on (I thought it might be a little on the brown side for me), and Hang Up was ridiculously dark (which means who knows when I’ll wear it!). Lickable is definitely in-ya-face in its rich color, but I’m sure it’ll be a popular one! See the colors for yourself!

Hang Up is sooo dark! I don’t think I will wear, LOL.

OMG, Shanel, they are SO different, how can I say which is better?! I love me a coralish shade, so you know I love Crosswires… Creme In Your Coffee has color, but yet it’s totally everyday.

They’re both permanent, so you could get one and save the other for later… 🙂

yay! is all lip sticks permanent? that’s great, im gonna splurge more on the glosses then!
but yeah, i think im gonna get the crosswires first then the other one.
thnnnnks christine 🙂

Awesome! Now, I have seen some colors that most would never find wearable, and I have loved them… but I have to ask, how can one wear Lavender Whip and NOT look undead??

Actually, I thought the same thing until I tried it on (at the counter) last night. It was BEAUTIFUL on! I have very light skin, dark hair and blue eyes and it just made my eyes pop and really brightened up my face. The funny this is that, once it’s been on for a while, you don’t see your reflection and think “purple”. I just looked brighter and more fresh. I’ll be picking this one up when the weather warms up, in the spring.

I didn’t think Creme In Your Coffee would work on me at all! But I love it.

Wear it with pinks or berries — it’s one of those lipsticks that might be harder to pull off (though I think pale porcelain ladies will look fab in it), but it’s great for layering.

damn it… i am SO TORN between lavender whip and fashion mews. lavender whip= more opaque, fashion mews= paler and is in hello kitty packaging… damn it i’m so tooorn

I was not expecting to love this collection, for some reason I was expecting sheer washes of colour but I want them all! I’m definitely getting Hang Up & Spice is Nice. Lickable is a gorgeous colour but it looks pretty similar to Lustering so I don’t need it. I’ll still check it out to see how it compares though

I recently tried Hug Me (I know this post is quite old)..and I found it was quite brown on me as well. I ended up with a lipglass instead because all the “nudes” (kinda sexy, cherish, jubilee hug me) were coming up so brown and dark. Maybe because of redness in lips?? i have olive/neutral warm, light to medium skin.

Thanks, Kristie! It is quite different for me; I don’t think I have anything like it, because I just don’t buy browns really!

A recently purchased Creme Cup and the texture is much better than Angel.
When I swatched my Creme Cup on my lips I thought I wear last years N3. Just a little darker and pinish. And it is just in the middle of Angel and N3. I just love it.

Hi, Christine. Your application looks so nice and even here. What do you use underneath on your lips? Lip balm? Lip liner? Or are your lips just nicely defined naturally?

My lip line is not very clear, so I don’t think I could pull off bright lipstick without a liner or smth. For example, my MA didn’t let me buy Viva Glam I without buying a liner also. 🙂

Thanks, Myxa! LOL, I normally consider this sloppy application–mostly because I just go with it and I don’t worry about fixing it, since it’s mostly for swatch purposes.

Anyway, I usually wear lip balm before I apply lipsticks, then I blot it off by smooshing my lips against the back of my hand (otherwise it might interfere with the lipstick’s lasting power). My lips are relatively defined, so I don’t usually have to do much. My cupid’s bow could be more defined, so I might line or highlight that area with a shimmer product. 🙂

does anyone know how much these are? i bribed my fiance to go buy it for me since im sick, but i told him they are 14$. he’ll flip if they are much more.

I am irrevocably in love with Hang Up, oh yes. This is the epitome of deep, dramatic lip colour. I believe I will have to dig up some of my monies and go out and buy it! 😀

Yes, yes, I agree wholeheartedly–completely dramatic lip color! It is permanent, so you don’t have to rush TOO much 😉

I love creme in your coffe and spice is nice, and im thinking about Hang Up. Is it a berry or a plum or a red, or what? Can it be sheered out with another color or is it dark and vampy beyond all hope?

It’s a very dark berry-purple almost. It’s definitely not red. It is VERY pigmented. You could try using a lip brush or applying and then blotting to make it less vampy 🙂

I was on the Mac Pro site earlier and saw the Lipmix and thought it might be useful to lighten Hang Up. Could you do a look where you mix Demi-red Lipmix with Hang Up? I think people want a dark red from Hang Up but get a dark berry, and demi-red will make it redder.

i really like how CIYC looks on you! i might have to try that on next time i go to MAC =)
btw, what do u think looks better, shy girl or marquise d’ from BBR?
thanks a million christine!

Hmm, not really. Honeylove is more nude/beigey on me, I think… I can’t remember if I own it or if I only tried it in-store eons ago.

Rrrr :K I’m torn between Creme in Your Coffee and Shy Girl. It’s like; Slightly Pale or Slightly Dark? It’s so not fun because no matter which one I get, I will lie awake in bed night after night thinking; I should have got the other one. :/

Im very but would you say creme in your coffee is almost identical to cosmo…and which one do you recommend more? thank you! I am new to this site and love it!!!

OMG i love..
cream in your coffee
shy girl
spice is nice

thank you for the swatches.
i wasn’t sure to get any more lipsticks after the hello kitty collection but after looking at these swatches, i’m swayed :]
thank you!!

<3 Krissy

what are your favourite lipsticks Christine?

and OMG – can I take the lips too (think lips here :()
Your lips are lovely

thinking about lickable but I sow your raves about YSL new lippies too. which once do you love more?

I love Rouge Volupte way more. It has an AMAZING formula. A few people don’t like it because it’s so creamy, but I adore it.

i went a bit crazy with this collection!
i ended up with 3 lipsticks and 5 glosses! i might eventually go back for more lipsticks…but for now i’m cut off…

omg, likable is gorg! i really wanted that one, but i passed. it’s so bright. i’m sure i’ll end up getting it eventually, cuz i don’t think i can resist. LOL!

How do you think it compares in color to Girl About Town?

It is pretty bright, but it’s so pretty. It’s very similar, but it’s a little lighter and it has a different finish (gives you that sheen). It’s not quite as opaque either.

I went in for Lavender Whip because I was SO excited to finally see a lavender. To say the least I was really disappointed; it’s too pale for my taste. BUT i ended up buying Petite Indulgence Gloss and Lickable lipstick. They were so pretty together.

So I finally bought something other than red or brown….YAY! even though I’ll probably go back for Spice is nice

It’s too bad it didn’t work out for you! It is quite pale/cool, though!

At least you got something non-brown/red 😛 That is a step in the right direction!!

Hmm.. I purchased Shy Girl but I think I’m gonna go back to get Lickable and Creme in Your Coffee.. and maybe even Crosswires! lol.. I’ll do that after my Hello Kiity haul though.. I’m sure I’ll be broke after that collection lol.

I am thinking of getting more of this..I have creme in your coffee..I will go back for spice is nice and the texture and the pigmentation!!!

Ugh I hate you Christine…now I have to have Spice Is Nice =p.

I probably get that and Fashion Mews. I like that Fashion Mews is a more transparent. I am an NW45 will full lips, so I’m going to have a bit of trouble. But lavender (my favorite color) lipstick in Hello Kitty (loved all of the Sario characters) packaging really honors my childhood, ya know.

what is everyone stressing over lavender. It looks disgusting on all most everyone i’ve seen wear it sorry ladies:( Anyway what creamgloss would go best for crosswire, cream in your cofee and spice is nice anyone knows????
