Show Me Your Nudes - MAC Nude Lipstick Collection

I was always scared of nude lipstick shades, I'd imagine concealer lips everytime a shade was mentioned. Little did I know that nude includes, neutrals, pinks and browns, meaning their is a shade for everyone.

As I am pale, I tend to lean towards warmer shades, which complement my skin. I also like pink nude shades for the spring. With my NW10 skintone, I stay away from true nudes, which look awful on me.

I thought I'd share my MAC nude lipstick collection in the hope it may inspire some pale ladies to pick up a new nude shade, don't be scared ladies!

Please Me
A perfect matte nude pink shade. It reminds me of the matte pinks in the 60s so I team this with smoky eyes and cat flick eyeliner to complete the 60s kitten look.

A lighter, perkier shade compared to Please Me. An excellent shade, which is comfortable on the lips due to it's Lustre finish.

Creme Cup
My first ever MAC lipstick, I picked it as it's super safe. I think this light pink nude shade would suit a number of skintones. An easy first lipstick for those who don't own a MAC lipstick.

Viva Glam 2
I would say this lipstick has the most brown pigment in it compared to the rest of my collection. Sometimes it is a little difficult for me to wear, as I have super pale skin. I reserve it for a lip plumping, ombre lip, using Viva Glam 2 as the base and outside darker edge. I then pop a more pinker hue in the middle to lighten the centre and make my lips look bigger.

My all time favourite nude shade, Patisserie is a perfect mix of a brown and pink nude. It's super comfortable on the lips as it has creamy formula. I've heard blogger, Vivianna Does Makeup talk about this a few times, if it's good enough for her, then it's good enough for me.

Velvet Teddy
I purchased this before the Kylie Jenner hype and wasn't impressed. It's a flat nude, which on my lip colour, tends to look overly brown. I do rescue this shade with a pink nude lipliner underneath to perk it up.

Which MAC nude shades do you love? Any recommendations on what to pick up?
