Autumnal Nude MAC Lipstick Picks

MAC Lipsticks

I have been wanting to do a post about my MAC Lipsticks for ages, but I couldn't decide which ones to feature - I have so many that I certainly couldn't feature them all! However, I decided as Autumn approached, I would do two MAC Lipstick posts: one with Autumn Nude lipstick picks and one with bolder lipstick picks! So, without further ado, here is a low-down on my favourite Autumn picks!

Syrup

Syrup was the second ever MAC Lipstick I bought. I purchased it in the MAC shop in Covent Garden during a school trip and I was never actually charged for it as for some reason, the money never went out of my bank account, so I always like to call this my first freebie. It's a lustre finish and it's the most gorgeous mauve pink. It's one of those lipsticks that you can just swipe on without even having to use a mirror and it ties together any look. I always reach for this, whatever season it is, but I particularly love it during the autumn because of it's purple undertones - it almost acts as a berry shade without being too in your face and that really appeals to me as someone who doesn't really like to wear the brightest of shades all the time. Syrup is creamy, sheer but buildable and perfect for this time of year.


Velvet Teddy

Everyone and their dog has this lipstick, or at least has heard of this lipstick. I unashamedly bought this just after Kylie Jenner announced that it was one of her favourites, sceptical of whether or not it would suit me. However, I think Velvet Teddy would honestly suit anyone. It's a perfect brown-orange nude that gives you that desired 90s glamour. The formula is matte but it's a really creamy matte that's exceptionally opaque and one swipe does enough to get you a really solid colour. It's really easy to wear and you obviously can - and should - wear this all year round but weirdly, this lipstick matches a scarf I have so perfectly, and that's why I see this as more of an Autumnal shade. 

Fleur De Force

I love this shade. Seriously. It's in my top 5 MAC Lipsticks of all time. When Fleur announced that she was creating her own MAC shade, I knew I'd love it as I buy so many lip colours based on her recommendations and I was not disappointed with this one. It's the most beautiful browny-pink nude and while it was released in Spring of this year, I knew I'd get the most wear out of it from September onwards and I was right. I've been wearing this nearly everyday since the weather started to get a little colder. It is quite similar to Velvet Teddy in colour, but it's slightly lighter and pinker and is a cremesheen finish, rather than a matte. I did a whole post on this lipstick when it first came out in April, which you can find here.

From L-R: Plumful, Fleur De Force, Syrup, Velvet Teddy
Plumful

I bought this lipstick after I heard Estee Lalonde talk about it constantly and honestly, it's the most perfect Autumn shade. It is called 'Plumful' but I would call it more of a raspberry shade. It's quite sheer upon first application which is why I added it into the 'Nude' Edit, rather than the brights one. However, as you can see from the swatch, it's very buildable if you want to go for a more intense look. I prefer this colour in it's balmy state; it adds a lovely pop of colour to a look without being too intense. I want to thank Estee for recommending this shade as I've used up one tube of it already and am now halfway through a second; I love it for this time of year.

There we have it. My autumnal nude lipstick picks. Stay tuned on my blog for more autumn lipstick picks, and maybe a eyeshadow one if you're lucky. What are some of your favourite autumn lipstick shades?

  1. The timing of this post is sassy as heck 😂 I love MAC's shade range, even though I can't use their stuff! I really wanted to get Nicki Minaj's new signature lipsticks 😩 I love a good purple-berry shade in the Autumn!

  6. I never seem to go to the Mac counter when it comes to shopping for make up. I only own one Mac lipstick which is in the shade Mehr which I totally love. I am someone who hasn't tried/purchased Velvet Teddy but I am a little more sold on the shade. Like you said everyone has it, so maybe it's time to see what the fuss is all about and why it's popular!

  19. Even the names makes me want to buy some now! ‘Velvet Teddy’ would be so good for this time of year & it’s probably my favourite shade 🙌🏽

  20. I bought a mac lipstick a couple of years back and it's a gorgeous colour but I never got along with it, it would be all patchy on my lips by the end of the day and felt too drying. I do just think it's my lips though because everyone else never complains about them.

    Great review and gorgeous photos!
