Mac Brave lipstick review

I bought this lipstick on a whim as I had some time to kill after work the other week before meeting someone so this shade caught my eye and before I knew it I had checked out. I seem to be doing pretty well with impulse make up items at the moment I have worn this most days for the past 3 weeks and boy bait another impulse purchase is a real favourite of mine now.

I am currently wearing this as my day time lipstick it is a gorgeous pinky nude with a strong brown tone which shows through really nicely on my lips. I feel it is probably one of those lipsticks that will look different on everyone, some might find the brown tone too much but on me it still looks fairly natural. It was a toss up between this one and creme in my coffee but that lipstick was way to dark and brown for my complexion, one thing I love about this lipstick is it can easily take you through to evening, it is that shade which is very versatile. One thing I will say is that due to it being a satin finish I find this lipstick very drying especially as it has been so cold recently. This is the only reservation I had about this lipstick as the satin finishes from Mac has to be one of my least favourite finishes as on me I find them drying. I also bought my first lip liner to go with it in morning coffee which I mainly wear in the evening, it is amazing how much it defines my lips and makes them look really sharp. I'm not a pro at lip liner but this one has converted me it makes such a difference you just have to be careful not to over do it as you could look a bit 90's haha!

Have you got brave? Does it look natural on you? Let me know your favourite mac lipsticks I am always interested :)
