Sometimes all we want is a classic nude lip to go, and Taupe by MAC is just what we need! A perfect warm neutral brownish-nude shade that goes with every skin tone makes this shade not only a must-have in your vanity but also an everyday makeup essential. I had this lipstick on my list for quite sometime and I just had to pick it up! You know when you look at something at a store and you don’t try it on, because you just know it will suit you and it needs to be with you? It’s that kind of a product. Made for everyone!
Being highly pigmented, Taupe solves the problem of hiding dark lips (a common concern among people). If you’re worried that a nude shade might not be able to hide dark lips and hence might not suit you, then you should definitely switch to MAC. All of their lipsticks, including light nudes are highly pigmented and that’s where they get brownie points!
Here’s a swatch of the gorgeous shade –
Taupe is a super-matte shade, which makes it all the more amazing. I personally love matte lipsticks! Just one stroke on the lips and you are good to go. Besides, it requires almost zero touch-ups because it is super long lasting (a good 5-6 hours). However, if you want your lipstick to last longer than that, here is a quick tip :
Line your lips with a lip-liner first (of the shade of your lipstick/closest to it, of course!), and fill them in with the liner itself. Apply your lipstick over it and you’re good to go for the whole day! This also makes your lips look fuller, moreover, the liner makes your job easier (staying inside the line is not so bad!).
What I absolutely love about this shade is how versatile it is. Be it my everyday, or a night out, or any occasion for that matter, Taupe never fails! I never have to think twice before putting this lipstick on, it goes with everything I wear. I personally love wearing this shade with a classic smoky eye. I feel it just brings out the whole understated sultry-smoky look. Besides, it’s a hot trend!
