New MAC Lipstick and it's NOT Velvet Teddy

One more can't hurt? At least that's what I told myself when I found myself at the MAC counter swatching away. I actually went in with the intention of buying Velvet Teddy (yes, it's finally back in stock) but guess what, it didn't really suit me, but this one did... 

MAC Modesty Cremesheen Lipstick is my answer to the perfect 90s/Kylie Jenner lipstick. Described as a "muted neutral pink", it's a tawny/rosey/nude with a natural, creamy finish. Cremesheen's are without doubt my all time favourite lipsticks. They glide on easily straight from the bullet, don't dry or feather and have a lovely plumped up sheen for fuller looking lips. Especially this one, as soon as I tried it on it gave me full on pout and that's before I've even touched a lip liner! I'm wearing this one with L'Oreal Lip Liner Honey, but it apparently partners perfectly with MAC Lip Pencil Whirl. I'm surprised I've never picked this one up before but I do have a really annoying habit of being drawn to the ones I already have - tell me I'm not the only one? It's quite brown in the bullet but on my lips it comes out more rosey. Wear time is very good for a cremesheen too... if you apply it properly. Line the lips first, apply a generous layer, blot with tissue and apply another layer. I did this, ate a plum and the pout remained in tact.

As much as I clearly didn't need another lipstick, I don't regret picking this one up. It's a very versatile shade - great for day or night, super flattering and very plumping.

  1. Such a lovely colour. I'm not a fan of nude lips as I have quite dark skin colour and they just don't look very good on me but that is so lovely, I am very jealous!!

  2. That shade is stunning and looks great on you. I definitely have to add Modesty to my collection :)

  3. This shade is lovely. I have been so tempted with so many lipsticks from MAC, all mainly nudes or pinks. Great post x

  4. Wow this is such a gorgeous shade, and looks lovely on you! I’ve definitely added Modesty to my wishlist :)

  6. The shade looks gorgeous on you Claire!

  7. Modesty has been on my wishlist for a while, I recently picked up Blankety and I am obsessed! x

    1. That's so funny because once I ruled out Velvet Teddy, it was between Modesty and Blankety. I loved blankety but decided it was too nude - and I have way too many nudes already :)

      Great minds think alike :) x

  8. Velvet teddy doesn't suit me as well ( I was little gutted to be honest) but I this colour is amazing on you. I definitely have to check out next time I am at the mac counter.
