MAC Lipstick in 'Twig'Tuesday, 26 April 2016 19:22
Today's post is one I have been meaning to share for a long time now. Last year I decided to look for a 'nude' lipstick shade that would actually suit my skin tone as I had only ever tried shades that washed me out or aged me rapidly! I swatched so many different shades in the MAC store and decided on 'Twig', a brown toned pink nude.
I loved it instantly. It was just the right shade- not too dark and not too pale, the perfect 'my lips but better' shade (I know, I hate the phrase too but it's true!). I've worn this lipstick so much since I bought it as it makes a great everyday shade but can also be dressed up with a smoky eye look.
The finish is satin, which to me lies somewhere between a matte and a creamsheen. It doesn't apply with a glossy finish but isn't quite as drying as a matte finish can sometimes be. It wears really nicely too as a result- not at all patchy.
I love this shade and it has fast become a lipstick I reach for almost every day!
What do you think? What other shades would you recommend from the MAC collection?
