Mac Lipsticks: Brave and Faux


I am so happy at this moment, I can't even fully express what I feel right now. Yesterday I went to pick up my long-wanted package with 2 beautiful new Mac lipsticks. I've been wanting those lipsticks for a long long time, but since they're more than expensive enough to think twice about how to spend your budget wisely - I didn't think long when my new payment came in and ordered one. Well, two. Yolo. I suppose a girl can never have enough lipsticks.
It took a long time for me to finally pick the 2 colors I wanted - as Mac's assortment is literally endless. I made a selection of my 5 favourites which included Captive, Brave, Faux, Velvet Teddy and Retro - and brought it back to Brave and Faux only. 

Brave
 Brave
Brave is a very neutral colour with a pink satin finish. It looks a lot like my own lip colour but slightly darker. The colour seems to change by the colours you wear as well as it looks different in broad daylight compared to what it looks like in darker surroundings. Brave is perfect to use as an everyday-lipstick, and perfect as a beginner-lipstick for people who want to start using (Mac) lipstick but are not sure about where to start.

Faux

   Faux
Faux is best known as the Kylie Jenner lipstick, but that was not the main reason I chose to buy this one. Faux is in my opinion very similar to Brave, but slightly darker. First I thought this was more of a matte lipstick but it's suprisingly creamy with a healthy, glossy touch. The colour reminds me of the 90's where women wore a lot of beige and old-pink shades. I really find this a special colour and I love how it looks on my lips! 

Both lipsticks are really well pigmented and stayed on my lips for more than 3 hours! That's longer than all my other lipsticks do. And another thing that I noticed was that while I was drinking coffee and juice, the lipstick didn't leave much crap on my cup afterwards - which I find very good about it. 



What do you think of these lipsticks? Which MAC lipstick is your favourite?

  2. Those are both beautiful colours. I always end up picking out lipstick that is pretty close to my lip colour, but slightly darker. I'm pretty close to Brave. I want to branch out, but I'm rubbish at applying lipstick, so I'm also afraid to try it, for fear I'll end up looking like the Joker in The Dark Knight.

  3. I don't really wear lipstick - but I do know the feeling of being extra excited for something that seems so simple. I think treating ourself once in a while is necessary - if for anything, that feeling of excited ;-)
    The colors are beautiful
