If you’re looking for a new lipstick shade, you can pretty much guarantee that MAC will have a shade similar to what you’re looking for and their selection of nude lipsticks definitely stands out amongst other beauty brands.
MAC’s nude lipstick selection is varied, with different tones and colours, different textures and finishes. Basically, there’s going to be something that you’re looking for.
Globally, MAC sells one lipstick every second, and it’s easy to see why with their excellent, long-lasting formulas that are packed with pigment. And of course, the hundreds of shades available too.
Here we run through the stand out nude MAC lipsticks that you’ll find yourself reaching for day after day.
Whirl only launched in 2015 but managed to become the second-best-selling shade, behind Ruby Woo. The popular rosy-brown shade is a matte finish, and looks simply gorgeous on so many skin tones. The ultra flattering shade is definitely one to try if you’re in the market for a new nude lipstick.
Kylie Jenner is a huge fan of the lip liner version of this shade, and Caitlyn Jenner loves it too, she included it in her second MAC collection.
Blankety is a warm beige colour that has pink undertones with a pearl finish. It’s a gorgeous nude shade for those with fair to medium skin tones. This lip shade is part of the Amplified range which means you get a good colour payoff with just one swipe. It’s pigmented, and moisturising. It will last a while, and it won’t bleed or dry out the lips.
Creme in your Coffee
Creme in your Coffee is a must-have nude shade for those with olive and darker skin tones. The mid-tone pink brown is really warming to the skin tone. This is a Cremesheen lipstick so it packs a punch in the pigment department and feels comfortable to wear on the lips.
Lady be Good
MAC joined the matte liquid lipstick revolution with the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour range, and the Lady Be Good is a beautiful nude shade that has a warm peachy tone. The lip colour provides a splash of colour that lasts pretty much all day, even after food and drink, doesn’t dry out the lips and has a liquid suede finish.
Matte liquid lipsticks are definitely our favourite because they require little upkeep throughout the day, and of course, MAC has got it completely right with their line too.
Brave is a satin finish lipstick from MAC, which means its colour-rich has a soft-satin, semi-matte finish. The soft, rosy toned pink colour conditions the lips whilst you’re wearing it.
Honeylove is a gorgeous matte nude lip for those with olive and dark skin tones. It’s a luscious neutral tone that has just enough colour to stop from washing you out.
Velvet Teddy is another nude shade that became a HUGE must-have when Kylie Jenner labelled it as one of her go-to MAC lipsticks. It flew off the shelves and was pretty much impossible to get your hands on for a while.
The matte finish is easy to wear, and long lasting. It can be a little drying on the lips, so make sure you put on some lip balm before you apply this colour, and top it up through the day too.
Half n Half
Half n Half is a great nude lipstick for olive and dark skin tones, it’s a warm brown shade with a hint of pink. It’s a satin finish, so feels smooth and comfortable on the lips. The colour lasts well, but will need touch ups through the day, but the sweet vanilla scent means you’ll happily apply this pretty lipstick.
Creme Cup is another of MAC’s cult classic lipstick. The base shade is beige/pink, with just a hint of shimmer to brighten the lips. It’s one of those lipsticks you’ll always have in your collection because it works so well for plenty of different occasions.
Myth is a pale pink vanilla peach shade of lipstick. When you first use this lipstick you might not be the biggest fan of the shade, but it works great when worn with a nude lip liner underneath. It’s a great lipstick to have on hand to lighten any other lipstick colour too.
MAC Patisserie is another cult classic lip shade, simply because it’s lipstick that’s the colour of most lips. It’s ideal for a natural, subtle makeup look. Making your lips look like your lips, only better. It’s a neutral pink with a hint of brown and a slight pearlized finish – but not at all shimmery. Patisserie is the absolute perfect natural shade when you want to keep your makeup look simple and natural.
