Review | Mac Hue


While i was in duty free recently i was lucky enough to pop into Mac at 4am, its never too early for shopping! I have just finished my Shy girl lipstick which was such a nice peachy nude colour, however i wanted to try a new nude colour and had seen lots of posts about Hue which is described as a nude colour with hints of pink. I personally think £15 is extortionate for a lipstick but at £12.50 i couldn’t go wrong.

I have only ever had lipsticks from Macs cremesheen and matte collection so i was interested to see what their glaze finish was like. Firstly, the colour is beautiful when applied, it is a nude colour but with the softest hint of pale pink which stands out more than the Mac shy girl, I also prefer the pink hint to it. 

The glaze finish is described as having a very sheer colour and a glossy finish, well it is very moisturising and creamy to apply but I feel it doesn’t provide as much moisture as the crème sheen finishes do. As for the colour pay off I felt you needed to build the colour up a fair bit but when its applied I thought that the staying power of this lipstick was very good although the gloss does tend to fade after a couple of hours, which is expected from glaze finish lipsticks but its great for just that touch of colour. Overall, I am in love with the colour and I am so glad I picked it out!

For me Mac really can do no wrong with lipsticks and if I had the money I would try every colour there is! If you’re looking for a nude colour with an edge to it then this is your colour!

What do you think of this colour? What Mac lipsticks are your favourite?
