Natural Non-Shimmer Your-Lips-But-Better Lipsticks

September 16, 2009

I just purchased a new lipstick from MAC called High Def which I find to be a nice my-lips-but-better pinky brown shade. I normally don’t post much about MAC since there are so many other great resources out there, but had to rave about this one because even though MAC has a wide variety of natural pinky-brown lipsticks, I find a lot look odd on me because they turn too brown or look really dark on my lips even though swatched on my hand or in the tube it’s gorgeous. For example MAC Twig pulls an ugly brown on my lips while in the tube and swatched on my hand it looks so sophisticated and gorgeous!

I’ve pulled a few of my “non-shimmer your lips but better” lipsticks ranging from a nude-pink to pinky-browns and here they are:

1. Bobbi Brown Brownie Pink
2. MAC Velvet Teddy (matte)
3. MAC Half ‘n Half (amplified cream)
4. MAC High Def (amplified cream)
5. MAC Fanfare (cremesheen)
6. MAC Cosmo (amplified cream)
7. Laura Mercier Nude Lips
8. Laura Mercier Bare Lips
