Lipstick really isn’t my thing. There’s just something about it that I can’t stand – lipstick stains on mugs, dry lips (I NEVER EVER buy or wear matte lipstick for this reason), the outline of colour you sometimes get around your lips. It all just makes me cringe inside. I prefer lipgloss, but if I have to wear lipstick, I go for nudes and pinks that look like nudes, so basically nudes haha. You will hardly ever catch me in red. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve worn red lippie or a bold colour.
But… I took the plunge one day and decided to see what Mac had for me. There is a store by my workplace so I popped in during my lunch break. After a little help from the assistant, I settled on Creme In Your Coffee, a beautiful mid-tone pink brown shade.
What I like the most about it is that it’s from the cremesheen range. It has a creamy formula that provides a semi-glossy finish (mimicking a lipgloss which I love haha). I’ve worn it a few times now and it’s not drying at all. It claims to provide instant and long-term hydration.
I tried it on when I wasn’t wearing any foundation, and it doesn’t suit me without it. I don’t know why I still bought it, but I guess I was only concerned with wearing it with make-up on.
I’m yet to enter the world of lip pencils and which ones match which lippie. It’s all a bit much for my head and I don’t have money or patience to be doing all this trial and error. I currently use just one and it’s actually an eyebrow pencil that I took from my mum’s cupboard years ago. That’s the great thing about make-up. It’s versatile. Anyway I’ll get there eventually.
What do you think of Creme In Your Coffee?
