Put your hands up if you have ever tried M·A·C’s cult Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy? The creamy, suits-everyone-nude hue has garnered fans from all over the world and has been made famous by the likes of Kylie Jenner, thanks to its wearability and statement-making finish. However, if you’re looking for a new neutral to try, we’ve turned to our Global Senior Artist Carol Mackie to share three more neutral Lipstick shades she loves, and exactly why they deserve a spot in your makeup bag.
MATTE LIPSTICK IN HONEYLOVE: “Matte Lipstick in Honeylove is the perfect mid-tone beige nude with a hint of rose,” explains Mackie. “I love this Lipstick paired with a soft smoky eye or to be worn on its own for those I-look-like-I’ve-made-a-big-effort days when all you have done is just thrown on a Lipstick.”
LOVE ME LIPSTICK IN TRЀS BLASÉ: Tres Blasé is a light peachy beige shade that is so, so pretty and easy to wear, explains Mackie. “I love to pop this on my lips and tap a little onto my cheeks, too! It’s part of the Love Me Lipsticks range; the formulas are creamy and super silky in texture so they really feel like your lips are being conditioned and nourished, whilst imparting a strong pigment. It’s such a quick pick-me-up Lipstick that can instantly change the way you look and feel.”
MATTE LIPSTICK IN CHILI: “It pretty much says it all in its name but Matte Lipstick in Chili is a spicy, matte, warm orange-brown-red,” says Mackie. “Yes, it has all of those tones to it so it can be worn in so many ways; you can tap it on to the lips for a fun, party-ready hue, worn as a stain for a soft and romantic look, or as an opaque, full-coverage luxurious colour for a rich and sophisticated finish. You can literally be whoever you want to be with Chili; it’s definitely a favourite!”
