My Perfect Nude Lipstick // MAC Brave

MAC Brave Lipstick


At this point you are all probably sick of me talking about ‘The Kylie Jenner Lip’ but I just can’t help it – it’s just too beautiful and I can’t stop sporting it on a daily basis. And trust me – no one is more surprised I got sucked into the hype then I am. I wasn’t very big on nude lips but with MAC Soar (here) added to my stash the obsession got real. Today’s gem though is a little bit different to miss Jenner’s typical matte brownish pout and it’s a lot more wearable, everyday option for anyone that fancies dipping their toe into the 90s nude lip pool. Brave (here) is a stunning pinky nude brown shade that compliments both lighter and deeper skin tones beautifully and has that ‘my lips but 10x better’ thing written all over. Its gorgeous rosy tint is something anyone could fall in love with and the easy to slap on, low-maintenance color will be sure to get you lots of compliments. It’s tried and tested. Plus, if you want something that will make you look more lively and put together forget about the old school ‘concealer nudes’ and go swatch Brave. Just go.

It’s safe to say that in less then two months Brave managed to bump off the top spot all my other MAC lippies and is now my absolute favorite. The oh-so-gorgeous shade is the main reason but the formula definitely helps too. Brave has a beautiful satin finish and just glides on like charm. It feels really hydrating and buttery and you can even skip the scrub if you’re in a rush. This beauty has medium coverage but could definitely be build up to a deeper shade. The longevity is my only bugbear as it stays put for only two hours but the no-mirror-required application makes everything less faffy and quicker. If you are after something longer lasting though you could always pop some lip liner underneath and my favorite combos involve MAC Soar (here) and Rimmel Eastend Snob (here). Both compliment Brave beautifully and make the lips look extra full and plump. Love.

Have you tried Brave before? Which is your favorite nude lipstick at the moment?

Lots of love,
Andrea

  1. I definitely still need to try this out! My current favorite nude from MAC is Shanghai Spice and for drugstore I have really been loving Milani's Color Statement lipstick in Teddy Bare =)

  10. I'm definitely going to add this to the top of my "MAC lipsticks to buy" list - it looks perfect! I adore the Soar lipliner and wear it almost every day, so this would be so great to pair with it!

  14. I've had this for years and I reckon I will repurchase and repurchase. It is honestly such a stunning nude. Although I like to think that it doesn't just completely blank out your lips like other nudes, it still adds a subtle pop of something! I lurve it! Xxx

  23. This is a gorgeous shade! I find some of my MAC lipsticks don't wear for very long, although with a liner they last much longer.
