Which brings me to the first of my favourites, Midimauve! Midimauve is a Lustre and also doesn’t stay on as long on your lips as some other formulas, however, I love the slight shimmer it brings to my lips and it’s really very moisturising! I picked this one up from a Mac store near our hotel in LA in January this year! I love it for occasions when I won’t be eating or anything that won’t allow it to stay on for awhile. I usually get about an hour and a half’s wear out of Midimauve.
My newest Favourite is dun dun dun… Velvet Teddy! I lusted after this one for awhile and couldn’t wait to get swatched… the only problem was, everywhere I went in Brisbane, Australia, where I live, was sold out! Eventually I picked this one up on my birthday in the city Myer with Rebel (More on her later…). Velvet Teddy is probably my Holy Grail of Day lipstick’s. It’s matte, so super long lasting, it’s a “my lips, but better” browny nude, and it’s also rumoured to be the Kylie Jenner shade.
Lucky last is Mehr, my long sought after pinky shade of lipstick. She’s a matte lipstick as well as I love wearing her when I feel a bit girly, as apposed to a big glam during the day. Easily my runner up HG daytime lipstick, I always get compliments when I wear her. After asking every Mac counter from New York City to Los Angeles, I finally found her… in Brisbane. Sold out everywhere, with counters only getting a shipment in once a fortnight of only a handful of lippies.
I hope this helped a little in determining the perfect daytime shade for you. Shades look so different on everyone! My sister saw “Mehr” on me recently and decided she loved it, however on her it looked very blah and not at all special. The make up assistant suggested a few similar colours until we settled on “Twig” which is the perfect Mehr for her! Likewise, a friend of mine recently wore a great nude which I could have sworn was Velvet Teddy, but was really Viva Glam II!
Keep an eye out for my night time picks!
