    MAC nude lipstick - NC20

    Hey!
    I am looking for a MAC nude lipstick.
    I am NC20 in studio fix foundation, and currently my hair is a mediumbrown color. I find that peachy colors look best on me for some reason..
    I am not looking for a completely nude lipstick, not one that makes me look dead and washed out :P Oh, and no mattes please, I like the look and feel of a lipgloss but its just not that longlasting :P

    So, if you guys know any lipsticks that might look good on me, let me know so I have something to try in the MAC store (I don't wanna look unprepared hehe :P)

    xx

    P.S. I have Florabundance lipglass, which is like a peachy nude color that I really like, if that helps :P

    I agree with Freckletone. Definitely check out Peachstock l/s*it's a pro color*. Maybe Blankety as well.

    Thanks everyone!
    I think I'm going to try Freckletone next time I'm at my local MAC counter.

    Peachstock looks pretty from the swatches I've seen, but I don't have a MAC Pro store near me (I live in the Netherlands and I think there is only 1 pro store here haha)

    I'm an NC25 and I just bought Shy Girl lipstick, it's a Cremesheen finish and I love it!! It's a gorgeous nude colour! I also hate that there's only one pro store in the Netherlands (I'm also from here)...

    I love Creme D'Nude. It's towards the peachy side, and I find it works perfect with everything.

    creme d'nude is my fave! you can add a little more color to it by using a lipgloss on top. i use turkish delight by nars, love that combo!

    Hi everyone!
    Thank you for the recommendations I tried Freckletone, but I thought it was a bit boring so I put a lipgloss on top but I was really looking for a lipstick that I could just throw on without a mirror.
    So, I ended up getting High Tea, its not a concealer nude shade (I tried those as well and made me look dead) but its not too much either

    I know this is old but I had this same problem and I changed my life what u need is a mixture of peach and pink and nude.. Try looking for one that describes itself as this but I use peach stock creme cup and creme dnude and depends on how light/dark I am I might need to throw in angel to not look concealery... For a true punch and for going out mix ravishing with all these or try illamasqua obey.. This is the most flattering... True nc 20's have a peaches and cream complexion not too yellow not too pink and that's why they r struggling with nc nw sometimes nc25 or even nc 15 I found lumi majique in w3 and nc 20 has nothing on it with peachy lipsticks for the most flattering natural nude look.. Hope this helps someone!!
