A couple of weeks ago I found myself wandering around the Mac makeup counter at the local mall and I decided to stop in and grab some advice. Before this I had never owned anything Mac before, but had heard a lot about their lipsticks.
(Spoiler alert: I LOVE lipstick! I hoard it and finding that perfect color for each situation is a quest for me.)
I’ve been looking for a while for that perfect neutral/mauve lip that I see on just about everyone nowadays, yet when I would purchase the colors they suggested, they just didn’t work. (Which isn’t on them, different colors work better on each one of us.) They’d be too light or too dark or I’d look positively dead when I applied them to myself. Fast forward to my stop at the Mac counter… the amazing gal there listened to what I was looking for and we experimented. I knew I wanted a matte like look, but not full on matte (bc it is so drying), and I wanted it to be a great mauve/nude color. It took about 4 colors before we found THE ONE. I tend to be pretty pale without my self tanner on and my lips can blend right on into my face. I need a little color, so a traditional nude lip just doesn’t work. In the end we found that the color “mehr” was the one for me. And I love it! It is amazing for everyday life, it stays on forever, and I don’t have to fuss with it.
Here’s my suggestion. If you are in the market for a lipcolor, I suggest going to the makeup counter and asking for help. They are there to help you! You don’t have to buy anything, though it is nice if they spend a lot of time with you, but in the end you get something that is customized to you. I do think that quality lipstick is worth the splurge, especially if you wear it daily.
And that’s it! My perfect neutral fall lipstick advice;)
Tell me, do you have a go to lipcolor?
