MAC Naturally Lipsticks: Swatches & Review!

I'm back today with a couple more products to share from the new MAC Naturally collection. This release feature four neutral lipsticks, and two of them really jumped out at me (as much as a nude shade could). Beach Sand is a light, sandy brown that is like a more opaque version of the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee (one of my FAVORITE lip products recently). Pillow Talk is a medium rosy brown that is unlike anything I have in my collection.


These both have a cremesheen finish, which is one of my favorite finishes from MAC because it is very moisturizing. Because they are so creamy, they don't wear as long as something like a matte finish, but I don't mind reapplying every few hours. These are also very opaque.


And now for lip swatches! I love the way these look on! Very creamy.

Pillow Talk

Do you like wearing brown/nude lipsticks?

  4. I prefer nude tones with a hint of rosé, but you can totally wear browns :)

  5. I think I prefer pillow talk actually. Nudes tend to wash me out unless its a muted pink nude. lovely beach sand on you though!

  6. I hate the one in pillow talk. I love it. I was going to get beach sand but it did not look good on me. Looks good on you though.

  9. I've never worn brown lipsticks but I've done the nude lip before. I really like the Beach Sand. So pretty. Although I might branch out for the Pillow Talk too. Nothings wrong with experimenting. Although, all these new products my wallets not happy with me. Ha.

  11. I'm just wondering about a thing. Do you know how these compare to Dressmaker, Dressmaker and Made to Order from the Pret-a-Papier collection? From the pictures they remind me of those two.

  22. oooh are they similar to mac's creme de nude? I'm really looking forward to trying out some MAC neutral lipsticks :)Xxx

  23. Oh I really like these lipsticks! But I'm super fair (the lightest mac shades are too dark for me in the winter) and I have naturally quite pigmented lips so nude lipsticks usually look horrible on me. But I love it so much on other people... Wish I could pull it off myself! X

  30. Pillow talk looks very similar to revlon colorburst rosy nude, but I can't really tell for sure because of the lighting.
