Nude Lips - Mac Creme Cup and Plink! Swatches and Review

Top - Plink!    Bottom Crème Cup
I have been on the hunt recently for the perfect nude lipstick. I have found the process quiet hard because there is one thing I dread and that is concealer lips!
I want a nude that looks pretty on the lips, nothing too pale and gives hint of colour to them as well as a soft sheen.
Whilst at the Mac counter I picked these two shades up, Crème Cup and Plink! They're both similar but I couldn't decide on which on to have so I got both! 
Top - Crème Cup   Bottom - Plink!

Top - Plink!   Bottom - Crème Cup

Plink! is a warm toned nude which is slightly pink. It contains a tiny aspect of shimmer that makes this Lustre almost a frost finish. The colour pay off is very subtle, just giving the lips a slight pinky sheen that tends to need reapplying often.
Crème Cup is a cremesheen and as the name suggests is very creaming and moisturising on the lips. The colour again is a pinky nude but this time I feel that it contains more cool/blue tones which transfers onto the lips to be quite pale. I find this finish to last a bit longer and only need reapplying very couple of hours of so.
Even thou I like both colours I still feel there is a better Nude out there for me. Which is your favourite Mac nude lipstick?  I would love to know.
Thank you for reading


  1. I have creme cup on my wishlist but now I think I like Plink instead ..... ahhhh decisions!

  2. I really really really love "Hue" by Mac! I think its a glaze finish but its such a lovely colour. Though I do really like the look of "plink".
