April is a month I’ve always enjoyed. Besides that fact that it is a goldmine of public holidays in South Africa, it’s all when the weather cools. BUT is still not freezing like June. And can you believe it is already April? Because I’m feeling like 2018 is just flying by. So, I thought I’d start a new series on the blog of my favorite lipstick of the month – what I’ve been wearing excessively. Because I’m unfortunately like that. When I love a colour, I might wear it everyday for a week and then only change it up. I’m starting the series with an all-year rounder but one I really enjoy in Autumn and Winter. Without further ado, introducing MAC Cremesheen Creme in Your Coffee.
The Cremesheen range from MAC Cosmetics is a creamy, balmy formula. They have a semi-glossy finish and have a medium buildable coverage. The MAC Cremesheen Creme in Your Coffee is a mid-tone pink brown. What I love about the shade is that it’s neutral, but still gives your lips that little bit of extra colour.
I love that this colour is fairly neutral and can be worn either day or night. I find it works fantastic for a casual day work look, but just as well in the evening with more dramatic eye makeup. AKA It’s pretty versatile. If you are planning to wear it from day into night, make sure to keep it with you. I say that because I feel this lipstick doesn’t have the best staying power (It’s not terrible, just not the best I’ve used)
Gloss or Matte?
It’s actually a bit of a mix between the two! I find this formula is a great balance between matte and gloss – it’s not either. It just gives them perfect amount of shine but doesn’t have a dry matte look at all. (I LOVE matte lipsticks but sometimes you want a little shine :)) The Cremesheen lipsticks are also very moisturising and keep your lips very hydrated throughout the day. This is especially nice in winter when your lips are feeling a bit dry and you’re going to be applying lip balms.
Something I’ve noticed about these creamy, buttery shades is that they transfers a lot to cups and bottles, so just watch out for that. It’s pretty easy to tell which mugs I have used around the house when I’m wearing this lipstick!
The MAC Cremesheen Creme in Your Coffee retails for R245 from MAC Cosmetics either instore or online. I also featured this product in last year’s September beauty favorites which you can read all about here if you’d like.
