The MAC Nude Lip Edit | My Favourite Combinations


Although I posted my MAC Lipstick Collection a few weeks back, I thought I'd do a separate post to include my lip pencils and show you swatches of each individual shade, as well as how they look on the lips when worn together.

All my MAC Lip Pencils cost £12.50, and you can buy those here. All my Lipsticks cost £15.50 and you can buy them here.

Spice Lip Pencil

This is a gorgeous caramel-brown nude colour that goes with so many lipsticks I own. The formula is so lovely and creamy but it's waxy enough to do the job. I know a lot of people wear these lip pencils on their own but personally I find them just a tad too dry for that.

Whirl Lip Pencil

I find this a touch drier in texture than the other two. It's a really nice dark brown nude shade with slightly reddy tones.

Soar Lip Pencil

I think this would have to be my favourite lip pencil of the bunch! I would say it has the creamiest formula and it applies like a dream. I also love the dusky-pink shade because it works beautifully with more mauve-toned nude lip colours.

Jubilee Lustre Lipstick

This is quite a sheer 'my lips but better' shade that's more towards brown but definitely has some pinky tones too. Whilst I love it on its own, wearing Spice underneath makes it last longer and just gives that extra bit of pigmentation.

Taupe Matte Lipstick

This does for me what Velvet Teddy does for a lot of others; it's my perfect matte brown-nude lipstick. I'm not sure why it has such a misleading name as it's definitely a warm caramel tone. I love how creamy but long-lasting the formula is too. This again works beautifully with the Spice Lip Pencil for a warm brown nude lip.

Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick

On its own, this is a like, but not a love for me; I think I just suit slightly darker and warmer colours. However it's great when paired with a lip pencil. If I want to just take it a touch darker and a touch warmer then I'll layer it with Spice. If I want a proper dark brown nude 90s lip then I will layer it with Whirl.

Faux Satin Lipstick*

This is a really nice lighter pink-brown nude and the Satin finish means it’s pretty similar to a matte but it’s that bit more moisturising and has a slight sheen. It’s really similar in tone to Velvet Teddy and for the same reasons I do prefer this with a lip pencil of some sort. I really like to pair this with Soar in particular as it just deepens the colour a little bit and makes it more wearable for me.

Twig Satin Lipstick

This was one of my first ever MAC lipsticks and it’s still a favourite. Again, it has a Satin finish, but this is more of a mauve/dusky pink colour. Although Soar is more on the pink side of things, they still make a perfect pairing.

Mehr Matte Lipstick

This is sort of Soar in lipstick form. Although it’s similar in colour to Twig however it’s more of a deep pink in comparison to Twig’s mauve undertones. This is one of the nicest, creamiest matte lipsticks I own and this makes it so easy to wear when I want something between a neutral and a bright.

  10. Try Chicory Lip pencil if you love nude shades. I prefer wearing MAC lip pencils over lipsticks. I top em off, with clear gloss/chapstick to prevent drying.

  41. Amazing post! I own every one of these except for Jubilee and Faux :) Velvet Teddy is my perfect nude, but for something a bit more brown, I love Taupe. Spirit is also amazing, it's a tad darker that Velvet Teddy, so it might work for you :) xx
