Everyone's chattering on about autumn lip colours at the minute (including me) but for me it really is all about the nudes, all the time. It may be a bit of a seasonally inappropriate post but who says you can't wear a nude lip year-round? Nudes were made to wear year-round. While I've showcased my MAC lipstick collection a couple of times before (here and here) I thought it time I paid homage to my absolute favourite type of lip colour, because no one does a nude lip like MAC.
At first I really didn't like Modesty, I thought it pulled too brown on me but I'm definitely coming round to it. It's a dark pinky-brown Cremesheen that's opaque in the way that Creme Cup is but perhaps a tad glossier and I think it pulls more pink or brown depending on the skintone. Now this is one that would be great for a nod to the whole 90s lip trend without looking legit 90s, because let's be honest no one needs a repeat of that.

Unlike all of the other straight up pinky/peachy nudes this one is a mauve-pink colour and is very cool-toned - totally perfect for my fair skin but maybe not one for people with warmer undertones. Sadly it was also limited edition and it took me ages to track it down until I eventually found it in a blog sale, hooray! I feel like I need a matching lip pencil to go with this so if you have any recommendations of pencils that are a bit more neutral or cool-toned than Spice, hit me up.
So err, can you tell I love me some pinks? If you think there's any I'm seriously missing from my collection then I'm sat with open arms for your suggestions (I've already used up Hue and Angel) although I've got a serious hankering for Pure Zen at the minute.
P.S. I hope you enjoy the kind of old-school arm swatches, I just figured what good is a picture of a bunch of lipsticks when you can barely tell the colour? It's all about the swatch.
