MAC Lipstick in Brave Review

Hi everyone,

Although I love the #bbloggers chats, they are absolutely terrible for my bank balance and just make my wish list longer and longer every time! A couple of weeks ago I was talking to some lovely bloggers about MAC lipsticks which led me onto their website and before long adding Brave to my basket.

I have had my eye on Brave for a long time now so I am happy that I eventually took the plunge about bought it. The shade is a nude pink with a hint of mauve to it and the kind of colour that I have wanted to add to my collection for quite a while. Brave has a satin finish so it is fairly matte but the added sheen means that it’s not as drying as a completely matte lipstick. It also has great staying power and lasts well through a long day at work where I only need to top it up after eating and having a drink at lunch.

This is a great every day lipstick and I love the creamy and easy to apply formula. The only slight downside for me is that I think it would suit my skin tone a bit better if it was slightly paler but over all a fab lipstick that I can see myself getting a lot of wear from.

Have you tried MAC lipstick in Brave? Which are your favourite MAC lipsticks?
Thanks for reading,

  1. Mac Brave is on my list to purchase but I have yet to take the plunge because there's no Mac store nearby where I live. It's a gorgeous shade and definitely one that would suit most skin tone.

  3. @Shireen L. Platt I really love this lipstick and have been wearing it so much since I bought it. If you can get your hands on it I would definitely recommend it :) xx

  4. @Rita Macedo I think it would suit quite a lot of skin tones. It might be worth testing it out at a MAC store before you buy to make sure you like it :) xx
