My Monthly Mac Lipstick: January

Carrying on the series I have created featuring a Mac lipstick for each month, here is my first monthly Mac lipstick for 2016. If you don’t follow the series then basically I have a huge list on my phone of all the Mac lipsticks I want to get and I use this little series to keep myself from splurging all my money on them all at once..

MODESTY is its name and it is the most beautiful, creamy, nudey-pinky shade you have ever seen. Although I am a huge fan of autumnal berry shades, the nudes for me always win. I have wanted this colour for the longest time but was waiting for the right moment to buy it. After only owning it for a short period of time, I have fallen hopelessly in love with it. I may even to go as far to say it is my favourite lipstick ever….

You-tuber, Dani Mansutti, actually used this lipstick in her most recent video, claiming it ‘The Best Lipstick of All Time’. Check it out here (jump to 4:08 to see the lipstick in all its glory):

The lipstick is part of the Cremesheen range which makes it none-drying on the lips, giving them a healthy ‘sheen’. This is my first purchase from the collection and i’m sure it won’t the last! I love the colour more than anything else though, however it is nice to switch up the texture when almost all my other lipsticks are matte!
I thoroughly recommend anyone to buy this lipstick if you are looking for an everyday lipstick because it really is perfect, it isn’t too bold or too subtle.

From the swatch you can tell it definitely has a sheen to it in the reflection of the flash of my camera, however it isn’t too glossy in the slightest. It looks even better on the lips, especially when paired with one of Mac’s lip pencils such as ‘Soar’ or ‘Dervish’.
So there you have it, my January lipstick!
