It’s only fitting that a blog called hellolipstick features lipsticks. To make it easy on myself we’re going to feature one of my favorite lipsticks ever from MAC: Creme Cup!
This is my first lipstick from MAC, and I have to say it’s what got me into lipsticks to begin with. It’s a light blue pink, an accurate description here from the MAC website. It retails for $17.
Please note that I have a fair and cool-toned complexion. Lipstick with warmer undertones doesn’t look good on me, and as much as I want to I just can’t pull it off. My mistake getting into makeup was always lusting after what other girls had, even though their complexion was completely different than mine. Creme Cup on the other hand is also cool, which is why I finally managed to find a lipstick that worked for me.
For me this is the perfect everyday shade, but it might not work for you if you’re more tan than me. I’ve read a few reviews stating that this is the perfect shade for fair blonde gals, and I completely agree. I even purchased this for my sister, who is also fair and blond, as she kept borrowing mine all the time.
It has a cremesheen finish to it, which basically means it has a high-shine finish to it. It applies evenly and ain’t really a hassle: it’s one of those that you can apply without mirror, and it will still be spot on.
Hopefully you got a better idea on how this lipstick looks in real life! I’ll get better at taking swatch-on-my-lips photos; promise.
