Best MAC nude lipstick

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
i really like nude lips bc my lips are naturally very red and i hate red lips. theres this girl i found that has the most perfect nude lips...she used to use foundation but now she uses a MAC nude lipstick...she wouldnt tell me what # color she uses and i looked on the site and there are wayyy too many to choose from. im not sure which one she uses but i have pictures, so maybe someone could match it for me that knows MAC well? here::

I love Honeylove and I am NC35 with medium pigmented lips.
But you should definitely try Blankety.

From the pics, I'd guess Fleshtone??

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

I like Myth and Blankety. Myth is much more skin-colored (I'm pale-ish), and Blankety has a pretty cool pink to it.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

I think Blankety and Honeylove would give too much color for lips like that. I think Fleshpot or Myth would be more similar.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

Hmm my best guess off the website would be Blankety. Fleshspot if you can get your hands on it. Blankety is an Amplified Creme so it'll give that coverage that's perfect for nude lips like she has. I have Underplay, it makes my lips a pinky nude (I'm N9 tho, I went to the MAC Store and she recommended it for me). Underplay looks darker on the website than what it really is tho. Maybe you can go to the counter like I did? If not, my vote is for Blankety....or Honey Love...haha now that I'm looking at the Mattes.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

is myth really like a concealer-y-foundation-like color? bc i was looking at these pictures of girls that are wearing it on their lips and it looks like it isnt. they say they're wearing lipglasses over it....but i dont think it could change the color THAT much...?


that is way too pinky for the color im looking for

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

I'm NC20 with really reddish/purple pigmented lips. I've found that cherish works wonders for a perfect nude lip, lining first and then using a clear gloss on top is my favorite!

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

i would have to guess either blankety, myth, or fleshpot. If you want a more natural and flesh kind of color, i would either go with fleshpot or myth. if you want something with a slight pink color, go with blankety. HTH!

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

Blankety! I love that lipstick sooo much! My lips are pretty pigmented and the Amplified Cream formula really covers up the natural color. You may want to swatch it at the MAC counter to make sure it's the nude color you want, because it will look different on different skin tones.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

I use underplay for my clients who want that nude look

The thing about Myth is that it really erases your lip color (at least, it does on me), so I can totally imagine it bringing out the true color of almost any lipglass. You can see in that first pic that the lipstick underneath the lipglass is about as light as her skintone.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

I have very pigmented lips and when I wear Myth, it looks like the picture. If I apply it from the tube, it completely erases any color on my lip.

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

Ooh, myth looks lovely on those swatches - might have to get me some of that

Re: Best MAC nude lipstick

The trick with Myth is to apply it very lightly because it's very chalky!

I have caramel-colored skin and my faves are Myth, Creme D' Nude, and Siss. In that order. I used to put Chai lipglass on top of the myth to slightly darken the color, but it has been discontinued.
