2 MAC lipsticks for this autumn

Left- Brave. Right- Modesty 

I love lipsticks. MAC is my favourite brand to buy lipsticks from. First of all they smell bloody amazing! And secondly, the formula, packaging and colour range is great.

And now that autumn is here, I have stepped away from the baby pinks and coral lips and back towards the deeper nudes and mauve shades.

Brave and Modesty are hands down my favourite lipsticks. I am a huge fan of nude lips because it can go with any look, its just easy to wear and I think it really complements pale skin. And Im aware that they both look very similar in these photos but they are very different once you swatch them.

MAC Brave
Brave is quite a deep, beige-nude with a pink undertone but it goes on more brown than it shows in the tube. Its also a satin finish so its not completely matte which Im a fan of because my lips get dry very quickly. It is very flattering for very pale skin and also deeper and more tanned skin tones.

MAC Modesty
Unlike Brave, Modesty is a cremesheen formula and I think its perfect for the colder months because it had that extra little boost of hydration. For me, its a perfect "my lips but better" shade and I am all over that! Its a pretty muted pink with grey undertones and overall its very easy to wear. 

What are your 2 favourite lipsticks for autumn?



  1. These shades are really pretty! I'm loving the look of Modesty a bit more though. I'll be swatching it the next time I go into MAC :)

  2. Both of these look really pretty! I'm loving Viva Glam 2, Velvet Teddy and Honey Love at the moment but I want to get Modesty soon as its such a gorgeous color for the colder months!


    1. I havent tried any of those shades but velvet teddy is at the top of my wishlist.

  3. Such gorgeous shades of these lipsticks! I love Brave, it looks gorgeous and rich! x

  5. I picked up Brave back in March and it's been one of my staple colours ever since! I will give Modesty a swatch the next time I'm at the MAC store because it sounds lovely. Since you like Brave, you may also like Plumful as well. xx

    1. Ive never swatched Plumful but I definitely will next time Im at a MAC counter. x

  6. This is my first time seeing Modesty, very pretty shade and since I personally love cremesheen more than any other formula, I will probably pick this over Brave.

    1. I love Pure Zen as well and I think thats a cremesheen. I usually like those formulas over every other one too.

  7. I'm obsessed with Brave it's probably my favourite MAC lipstick I own - I'd love to try Modesty!
