I bought a new MAC Lippie! Then again that's no surprise, I can't go any longer than a couple of weeks without splurging. It's a problem I need cured of...
The latest addition to my collection is Creme Cup. I thought that since the majority of my MACs were bright, bold reds that I should perhaps go for something a little more understated. Everybody in the beauty community rave about Creme Cup being that perfect 'pinky nude', so I just had to give in and surrender my money.
Creme Cup is a a light blue toned pink shade, that is of a cremesheen formulation. It is much more subtle and wearable than my Saint Germain. The colour can be as bright or as subtle as you want; the lipstick is very buildable. The cremesheen formula has a very nice creamy texture (as the name inplies), but I also find that the lipstick has a tenancy to seep into any cracks in my lips. It sits much better if I first scrub and balm my lips beforehand.
The only downside, and I'm being very picky to even mention this, is that it doesn't last very long on my lips. On a good day it can last up to roughly two and a half hours, which means it typically has to be shoved into my handbag when I'm out and about.
