Review: MAC Creme in Your Coffee Lipstick

I have put off blogging this for so long! When I was away at Valentine's in Tunbridge Wells, I treated myself to a MAC lipstick. Everyone is so obsessed with Kylie Jenner lips at the moment, using MAC Velvet Teddy (see my fave babe Dizzy Brunette doing it!). However in MAC, I tried on Velvet Teddy and with my skin tone I looked really ill! The lady at MAC suggested I try Creme in your Coffee - a mid tone pink brown which is much more flattering for creating Kylie Jenner lips on pale, pink toned skin or blonde people.

The lipstick is a lovely dark nude colour and I think it's really flattering. I get lots of compliments about it because it's not a traditional red or nude, but flattering and wearable every day. It's a Cremesheen texture which I find quite drying so it can be hard to wear when my lips are dry as it highlights every little flake of dry skin. It definitely needs a scrub with a toothbrush first and a slick of balm. 

It's quite a sheer colour and can be built up quite dark, particularly if you use a dark nude lipliner to over-line your lips. I haven't used lipliner here to show you the true colour on me.
