Mac Our Pick Lipstick



Photobucket


Next up in my lipstick series is Mac Our Pick. Now this has long since been discontinued, but I blinkin' well love this colour, so I will have to include it here. It is a a taupe with a grey undertone and was a limited edition from Macs satin range.


Now if I apply this directly from the tube it looks a bit wrong and way too unnatural and heavy, making me look almost dead in fact. Instead, I apply it from the tube lightly and work it into my lips with my finger so it ends up looking more like a stain. It ends up looking so beautiful, a perfect nude/taupe shade on my lips. I think it looks incredibly  understated and chic.


I really wish Mac would make this colour part of the permanent collection. I haven't found another shade out there that  comes close. Well not yet anyway.


Here I am wearing Mac Our Pick Lipstick paired with Mac Smoke & Diamonds and Satin Taupe eyeshadows, which I think work wonderfully together......

If anyone out there knows a dupe of this gorgeous shade, would you please spill the beans? I'm all ears!

  4. @Sophie, Yeah, Velvet Teddy does look similar but it appears to have more of a pink undertone, whereas Our Pink has a grey undertone. i may have to check velvet Teddy out now though as it does seem right up my street. x

    @C.A.R & Makijaz Szajnar.pl, Thank You x

  6. You do have beautiful coloring.
    I think Urban Decay pencil in Watermelon is close, no? It may be a bit less grey as well.

  8. By the way, I think you should do a Look Book of at least some of the different looks you've achieved.. really quite great and different than other blogs you see..
