MAC - Honey Love Lipstick (Review) + OOTD

I've always been a bit put off wearing a nude lipstick, I guess I wasn't to keen on how 'pale' the face can look (I'm normally a bright pink lip sotra' girl) 

Another problem I had with a nude lippy is because I have a warmer skin tone I always felt a nude lipstick can make me look washed out. 

However, I had heard good things about MACs Honey Love lipstick

Here's a picture of me wearing the lipstick ... 

But how do we find the perfect nude shade?

1) A way to find a good shade is to swatch the lipstick on your wrist just under your palm, the shade should be 1-2 shades darker then the shade of your palm. 

2) Beige tones can tend to wash the skin tone a lot, try a peach or pink toned lipstick which can give a warmer and brighter hint of color. 

3) Don't have a nude lipstick yet? SIMPLE ... Just use a concealer which is also a few shades darker than your skin color, before applying it apply a lip balm to smooth out the lips as a concealer can sometimes be drying (MAC's prep + prime is a favorite of mine.) 


I did say in my previous post I would show you what I matched my beloved city bag with and here it is ... 

Please excuse the dirty mirror! 

My OOTD for my internship interview. New Look blazer, ASOS dress, New Look boots from ASOS, Zara office city bag with River Island watch. 


  1. I have Honey Love and it's a lovely nude. Slight pink tones to it make it so wearable. Cute outfit!

    1. I felt really weird wearing it at first! But i'm definitely starting to warm up to it :) And thanks!
