Mac Lipstick Review: Creme in my Coffee

Is it just me or does Mac always get you to buy at least one thing from their collections? I mean they come out with one or sometimes two collections a month, and every time I have a mini heart attack. I keep telling myself I reallllly don’t need a need another lipstick. What kills me is when its limited edition; do I buy it because I can’t get it again? or what happens if you buy it, love it and can’t get it anymore?. At the end of the day I fall for it, and today my pocket is $16 lighter. I will say (pat myself on the back for this one), that instead of buying the lipstick while online I waited to go in store to try the swatch in person; just in case I didn’t like it. Today I decided to pick up: Creme in my Coffee. 

It’s a light pink creamsheen, which actually looks very similar to lipgloss. Here is the story about this lipstick (I believe every lipstick should have a story..fyi). I went into Mac a while ago trying to find a nice nude. I tried on velvet teddy, and a few others but everything was making me look pale; so I decided to go with Twig. It has a nice shimmer and it’s a pink tinted nude so I lost the -my lips look dry- factor. It’s pretty but it’s a little bit more pink than I bargained for; hence me finding crème in my coffee. I love that it looks just like my viva glam vi lipglass but because it’s a creamsheen it doenst have the stickiness that usually comes with liploss (winning!!)

Pro: The color is very build able. It’s great for a base or tone down some bright colors like velvet teddy, or snob etc.

Con: It wears off and by the end of the day it looks like I never had anything on. It’s already a sheer color so when you eat or whatever it washes off very easy. I may have to use a lip liner too lock in the color.

This was my first creamsheen and I love it! What’s your favorite Mac nude?
