Clockwise from top: Brave, Creme Cup, Kinda Sexy, High Tea, Velvet Teddy

If there's one kind of post that I never get bored of reading, it's other peoples' MAC lipstick collections! I love nosing into what shades other bloggers own and adding new ones to my wish list, so I thought that I would do a post of my own.  I've split the post into two parts, this one is all about the nude shades I own and next week I'll be popping up one about the bright shades in the collection. 

First up is High Tea which is one of the Lustre shades and is the lightest and most sheer lipstick in the collection.  I wear this on an almost daily basis because it is subtle yet is a beautiful and warm sheer nude.  

This one is Creme Cup, which is a pinky nude with a far creamier finish then High Tea.  This is a shade that I love to wear during summer, as it is light and compliments a light, dewy base perfectly. 

Next up is Brave, which is a super flattering dusky pink nude.  It is one of the most wearable all-rounders which I wear both day to day and for evenings out.  

It wouldn't be a MAC collection without Velvet Teddy being in there!  I love this shade, I love doing the whole Kylie Jenner look with it and I love the warm dark nude tones. 

My latest addition is Kinda Sexy, which in the photos looks really similar to Velvet Teddy, however it is more orange toned and lighter.  I love the matte finish of it and the peachy colour compliments my skin tone better than a darker shade would. 

So there are the nude shades from my collection, I kept the writing to a minimum in the hope that the photos would of the talking! Do you have any of these shades?  What are your favourites?xx 



  1. I have only Brave from your selection of nudes but I absolutely love it, it's such a gorgeous flattering nude :) x

  5. Brave is one of my most recent purchases and I love wearing this in the day then switching to something a little brighter or darker for the night. These all look wonderful on you, especially Velvet Teddy. I just couldn't get it to work for me. x

  6. I have all the shades you mentioned but High tea and Creme cup. My favorite would be velvet teddy, I reach for that one the most.

  7. I like the look of Brave. My other favourite nude from MAC is Modesty. I tend to use nudes as a mixing colour though. x

  8. I only have Velvet Teddy from these but I love the look of Brave :) xx

  9. I love how Velvet Teddy looks on other people but it pulls almost straight up brown on me. Kinda sexy on the other hand, is one that I'm intrigued by and surprisingly, don't see that many people talking about it? (Or I could just be hanging out with the wrong crowd???? :P) xxx

  12. I love Brave and High Tea! I don't own many nudes, but I do have Cremecup but never wear it! I love dark bold lips, but love Nudes when I see them like this. Taupe is probably my closest to nude haha xx

  15. Velvet Teddy looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I only own one Mac lipstick and its creme cup, but I'm definitely going to be buying more as I get so much use out of it!
