MAC Hue Lipstick | Review

MAC Hue Lipstick
MAC Hue Lipstick
I own my fair share of MAC lipsticks(see my collection here). I own at least 8(so far!) but my most used and favourite of the bunch of them has to be the shade 'Hue'. 

MAC Hue is a true, soft pinky nude shade with a glaze finish. I was worried that maybe it wouldn't suit me or it'd wash me out so I had to do a lot of research before purchasing it as I unfortunately don't have a MAC counter within walking distance of where I live(boo!). I read tonnes of reviews and searched up swatches of it. It sounded almost good to be true. I went ahead and purchased it and luckily enough the risk paid off and I am totally and utterly in love with it.

It's my everyday, go to lipstick. It's a totally wearable shade and really goes well with my fair skin tone. Sorry to be a little 'cliche' but it's definitely one of those 'my lips but better' shades. As it has a glaze finish it doesn't have the same opacity as the other lipstick finishes. It's incredibly sheer and has a slight glossy effect so you need at least two swipes to make it look opaque. I'm surprised how pigmented it is for a sheer lipstick.

As much as I love the finish of the lipstick, it can really make any dryness on the lips look more noticeable so I really recommend you use a lip scrub and a lip balm before application. I always use a Carmex Lip Balm overnight to soothe and moisturise whenever I'm suffering from dry lips and apply my Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub before applying the lipstick.

MAC Hue doesn't have the best lasting power unfortunately due to the glaze finish but it's really no problem. It lasts maybe a good 2-3 hours before it needs to be reapplied and on the plus side, it doesn't settle into fine lines. It feels really lovely and moisturising on the lips too. 

Overall, MAC Hue is the most perfect everyday pinky nude shade that suits even the most palest of skin tones. It gives a pretty sheen to the lips and just looks so so beautiful. If you're pale or fair skinned like me then I highly recommend this lipstick. You will not regret it, I guarantee it. A MAC lipstick retails for £17.50(previously £15.50) which I do think may be seen as a little much to spend on a lipstick but I can justify it when other high end brands are £22 upwards.

Have you tried MAC Hue Lipstick?
