MAC Crème Cup Creemsheen Lipstick

When I won a competition some time ago to win a MAC lipstick, I really didn't know what to choose or where to even start with the number of shades available, infact I found the whole task quite overwhelming.  But with some lovely tweets from some fellow bloggers I ended up choosing  Crème  Cup.

Crème Cup is described as being a nude pink shade which some might consider a little bit boring when you can choose amazing shades such as Heroine, Rebel and Dangerous, but for those of us who have yet to feel confident wearing these bold and bright colours, Crème cup is a perfect starting place and I feel a great introduction to the world of MAC - yes this is my first EVER MAC product.

Far from being boring, I was quite surprised upon the arrival of the lipstick at how lovely it looks, encased inside its bullet shaped case, it is everything bit as beautiful as I had been lead to believe it would be.  Application is really easy as it goes onto your lips effortlessly, my only issue is its longevity, it needs to be reapplied every 2-3 hours, which on the whole isn't too much of a problem, I was just expecting it to last longer.

Thankfully once you are wearing Crème Cup it doesn't highlight any of those pesky dry patches or imperfections on your lips which makes it the almost perfect daily wearing lipstick and it compliments every make-up option I choose to wear, whether from a natural look to the smokey eye effect, infact I am sure it would suit everybody it is that versatile.

Naturally having loved using Crème Cup, I'm now wanting to try quite a few other MAC shades such as Hue,Modesty and Fanfare to start with of course!

  8. I have never purchased anything from there either. Not because I don't like them, but the store is miles away from where I'd usually shop. So I just haven't been. The lipstick is a lovely colour though, I'm after something similar.

    I think you should really post some photos of yourself wearing it though!! We don't see enough of you on here :D xx

  16. I've never tried a MAC lipstick before but I'm getting more and more tempted every day! I spent a lot (too much) of my time thinking about what my first shade would be and Creme Cup is certainly one of the contenders.
