MAC Lipstick in Creme in Your Coffee // £14

A few weeks ago I treated myself to a couple of MAC things with some of my birthday money and this lipstick was one of the products I bought. I hadn't heard much about Creme in Your Coffee in the blogging world, but for some reason the colour caught my eye and I decided just to go ahead and buy it. I'm definitely glad I did, as I have ended up wearing it so much recently. It's the perfect daytime lipstick and it has become a staple in my makeup bag.

MAC describe Creme in Your Coffee as a "creamy mid-tone pink brown" and I think that's pretty much spot on. It looks like quite a deep browny shade in the bullet, but when applied it is more of a dark rosy pink colour. I imagine that on some people this could actually look like quite a dark shade, but on me it could almost be described as a deep nude. For me, this really is a "your lips but better" kind of lipstick! I love that it isn't too overpowering but it does give a definite, solid colour - which is perfect for daytime makeup.

As with all MAC lipsticks I've tried so far, I've found the formula easy to work with and relatively long-lasting. It's a Cremesheen lipstick so it has a really creamy formula (I'm the best at descriptions, eh?) with really pigmented colour and a slight shine. I didn't find the lipstick particularly moisturising, but then again it wasn't drying either so no complaints!

Overall, I really love Creme in Your Coffee and I think it's a MAC lipstick which deserves a lot more attention. As someone who doesn't really suit pale nude lipsticks, I will definitely be reaching for this slightly deeper shade whenever I need a neutral lipstick.

Have you tried Creme in Your Coffee?

  3. I've seen this pop up more & more on the blog-o-sphere; I'm so pleased its getting some recognition! Its been a favourite darker nude forever in my staple makeup bag alongside darker hues like Syrup & Jubilee - both of which you should try if you haven't already - they'd look beautiful on you!

  4. I actually have a very similar lipstick from another brand (think it might even be e.l.f!) and I totally love it as well! It's like wearing a lipstick without actually shwing you do, but still having the benefits of it (if that makes sence, haha!)

  22. This reminds me of fan fare alot! amazing how different it looks from bullet to lip! xx

  23. This is gorgeous! It looks so different on that it does in the bullet, totally wasn't expecting it to look how it did at all. Haven't tried this one, and am attempting (attempting!) a lipstick ban for 2013 - but I'm making a list of ones I want to investigate when the ban is over. (Yes, already, in January, a year away from it in theory being over :L!)

  24. This looks amazing, I would never normally go near a shade like this due to it's name and colour in the bullet. May have to bypass a MAC counter soon x

  25. It looks gorgeous on you! It's always nice to see post about a shade people don't talk so much :)x

  26. I think that might be my next Back 2 MAC lippy. It looks really easy to wear but pretty.

  28. The color looks so pretty on you, and I love the quirky name.

  29. It definitely caught my eye too, it looks gorgeous on you! I never got into Mac, I think it's because I had a bad moment with their compact foundation years ago. But I know everyone loves the lip sticks, so now after reading this I think why not, lip stick is not going to hurt. The name of the lip stick is cute :) xx
