Mac's 'Hue' Lipstick

For a little over a month now I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude colour that I could dress my lips in on a day-to-day basis, be it for work, leisure or maybe a perfect companion for a smokey-eye. After playing around with some drugstore dupes and trying to detect what formula I was after, as at this point I was still unsure if I was looking for a gloss, balm or stick, I eventually decided a lipstick would give me the boldest colour with the most easily-wearbale, natural finish and a long-lasting formula and where else is better to go for a lipstick with all these qualities then Mac? As soon as I started to indulge into the never ending selection of lipsticks Mac has to offer, already my mind was going tick, tick, tick when checking all the boxes on my mental 'what I'm looking for' list. I narrowed my choices down to a short list where Mac's Creme Cup and Shy Girl made an appearance but in the end I decided on none other then Mac's Hue

Hue is a pale, nudey pink with a creamy formula and features in the Mac Glaze Collection. As it does fit into the Glaze category this means you can be ensured that the lipsticks has an extra shiny finish and although the product can apply fairly sheer, the pigmentation is still incredible which one would expect seeing as it is a Mac product. Once applied, the colour last around four hours on the lips, an impeccable amount of time for such a light, pale colour. The formula is extra moisturising and the creamy consistency lasts well once on with minimal transfer. One of my favourite things about this product truly is the shade (sounds obvious I know) yet it's more about the subtle pink undertones that make it perfect for every skin colour. I was worried about purchasing such a nude shade as being someone with very pale skin I was cautious that the colours final result would end up washing me out but instead it emphasises any bronzed tones in the skin and really finishes my everyday look. Now I've had it in my collection, I definitely could never let it go. 

   All in all, this is definitely my new favourite nude lipstick and I really encourage 
you all to give it a go.
