It is about time I do a review on a few MAC lipstick colours that I used in 2016. I showed you 4 of my favorite colours in my previous post and I got completely drawn to MAC Taupe Lipstick in Matte finish and purchased the same colour three times in the past 2 years. I have to admit I can never have enough lipstick in my kit. I apply then reapply a couple of times daily at work.
This year, I used these 3 colours (left to right: Twig in Satin Finish, Mehr and Viva Glam I in Matte Finish)
From last year’s colours which were more brownish and peach, I would say the colours I picked this year were more pinkish and had more reddish tones.
I love Twig in Satin finish. As you can see, I used it the most. I will definitely purchase the same colour. I like that it didn’t leave my lips dry and the colour was safe to use day and night. Mehr washed me out a bit so it required me to work on my blush whenever I used it. Viva Glam I is my perfect red lipstick. It has the right amount of red with brown undertones which is great for most skin tones.
To show you the shades, I did a swatch below.
