MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in TAUPE


It feels like it's been forever since I last bought a MAC Cosmetics product so I decided I would re-start my lipstick collection, especially now that I've started to put together an impressive makeup storage space. There are so many shades that I wanted to buy, but in my opinion MAC lipsticks are a bit on the pricey end, so I managed to narrow down my selection to one lipstick; Taupe.

I've seen Taupe all over the internet in the past year, especially this season as It's a beautiful shade for most Fall Makeup Looks. I've had this shade on my lipstick wish-list for quite a while now too so I feel like I've made the right decision by choosing to purchase this one.

It's described as one of the perfect nudes by many other beauty girls but I think that obviously depends on your skin tone because on me it's not so much a nude but more of a berry taupe shade that adds definition to my lips whenever I wear it and compliments my colour so well as it's not too light and not too dark. I also found that this specific shade doesn't necessarily require a lip liner as it does perfectly fine on it's own, but it goes perfectly with MAC Cosmetics very own Nice & Spicy lip liner.

Although this lipstick is matte, it glides on smoothly and slightly dries to give a matte finish that lasts for hours and fades gracefully without any noticeable patches. The fact that MAC lipsticks don't dry out the lips is one of the many reasons why I continue to purchase from MAC cosmetics, because although they may seem pricey, the quality is amazing!

Pigmented muted reddish-taupe brown rich with intense color pay-off. No-shine, all matte finish.
