MAC Lipstick in Creme in Your Coffee – £15.50
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.
