I AM SERENE L

|MAC| Brave

I am excited to share with you all the latest addition to my MAC lipstick collection, Brave – a lovely satin finish pink / nude lipstick shade!!!

The nature of the lipstick is perfect for everyday as it gives off a rosy / pink nude colour that is suitable for a number of natural makeup looks! I’d wear this alone for the day time and could also add a clear lipgloss on top for extra drama for a night time look ( the satin finish enables you to have a glossy lip without the lipgloss… which creates a perfect base to add more dimension with a lipgloss) or with a lip liner underneath to keep the lipstick last longer for up to 4-5 hours of staying time πŸ˜€

I was lucky to receive this lovely MAC Lipstick as part of a giveaway I won by the lovely Janine fromΒ A beautiful Whim BlogΒ & Victoria fromΒ Living Disrobed Blog!!! I will reveal a hold load of delights I received in my giveaway box, bit by bit on this blog …. below is a little sneak peak at the content in case you missed it on my Instagram &Β TwitterΒ Accounts!

I absolutely love the texture and the finish of this lipstick. It’s a lovely moisturising satin finish lipstick with a slight sheen that keeps your lips looking hydrated and fresh. I love the pink undertones in this nude lipstick that gives of a rosy tint on the lips, which is just perfect for an everyday sort of natural makeup look! < I’ve probably mentioned this point before, but believe me it’s the aspect of the lipstick that I love the most! It is a bit different to other nudes as it suits a wider variety of skin tones, unlike for instance Velvet Teddy which is not suited to my skin tone (unless I tan) !!! hahaha πŸ˜€

    I absolutely love this color. It kind of reminds me of the lippie stick from ColourPop in the shade Frida, but a bit more warm toned. These are my favorite kind of nude shades because they don’t wash me out!

    • Thanks so much Laurel πŸ™‚ this colour is just something else! I sawwww Frida on your blog πŸ˜€ … I really need Colorpop to come to the UK already 😒😒😒😒😒! I love these satin / Warm toned nudes too! As they suit a lot more skin tones πŸ’‹πŸ˜šπŸ™ŠπŸ’— xoxoxox

      • thebeautifiedblogger on said:

        You are so welcome! Seriously, these tones work best with my squinting too! I hope colourpop comes to the UK soon because I know you would be in love with all of the lip products! So affordable and great quality! I can always count on you to keep me in the know about MAC lippies!

      • Hehehe πŸ™‚ I’m already in love with the colorpop products I see on everyone’s blog! I really want them to come here :(! Heheheh you always keep me up to date on amazing nail brands! Xoxox

        I can’t wait to get my hands on some of essie’s fall 2015 shades!!!!

      • Neither can I :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Essie always delivers with amazing polishes ❀ xoxox

      • thebeautifiedblogger on said:

        For sure! I need Leggy Legend, Bell Bottom Blues, and Frock N Roll! I’m obsessed with the theme for the season, as well! They seriously made the best move when they hired Rebecca Minkoff as their global color designer! She’s my gurl!

      • I LOVE REBECCA MINKOFF πŸ˜€ …. I think we have been seperated at birth I always admire her bag collection! ❀ I want to buy hehehehe! OMG I'm going to check out your Essie polish selections…. I TRUST IN YOUR OPINION πŸ˜€ πŸ˜› xoxox

      • thebeautifiedblogger on said:

        I just love her bags and we were definitely separated at birth!!!!!!!! Hahaha!!!

      • I knew it πŸ˜€ xoxox

  2. This is the perfect colour πŸ™‚ Like you said, it;s super natural-looking, but still adds a cheeky pop of colour. That’s such a crazy cool giveaway to win- congrats πŸ™‚ Hope you have a lovely week

  16. Super beautiful shade πŸ™‚

  17. This is a really pretty shade for Summer, I always prefer lipstick with some shimmer/gloss in them! It’s a lot lighter than I thought it would be XX

    • Thanks lovely, yeah it’s so strange the colour appears darker than how it translates on! Thats why I think swatching on the lip is ideal before purchasing! :* I love satin types with a bit of shimmer too, they’re like a 2 in 1 lipstick πŸ™‚ xoxo

  18. The Brave color looks gorgeous on you! Wow!! I picked it because I thought it would be a besutiful every day color where Flst Out Fabulous is more bold. I don’t have Brave and now I see it and I want it even more!! I’m so glad you love your box! There’s nothing better than a smiling face! Hopefully some of the products are hard to get in London. Victoria and I are working on another great collab and I’ve got lots of stuff planned this year!! Hope you are having fun and I can’t wait to see some looks with your make up for ever palette!!

    • You couldn’t have chosen a colour that is so much better! I honestly love it & you’re right this is perfect for everyday πŸ™‚ I would have never gone for this colour before! …. It appears darker on the tube but translates so lovely and more rosy on the lips πŸ’• I can’t wait to see more collaborations between yourself and Victoria πŸ’‹ I can’t wait to use up all of the other makeup & create some fun makeup looks πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— xoxo

  26. I’ll probably end up with this shade at some point. I’ve wanted it for a while. But then kind of got turned off a little by the hype. But it is a must have shade, that can’t be denied. Another one that’s been on my list is Syrup which is more pink and a Lustre so also sheer. πŸ™‚

    • Hehehe, usually get turned off by Hyped over products! Honestly though, such a lovely shade to have in your lipstick collection! You should definitely go for it πŸ™‚ ohhh Syrup sounds amaaazing 😍 even the name sounds lovely! I’ll have to check out the colour πŸ™‚ thanks Kimmy! Xoxox

  27. Love this post, really cute color!

  28. You lucky girl to win the giveaway, looks at all the prizes! Brave has been on my radar for long time but I am super tan and I’m not sure if it’ll wash me out?

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Awww thanks so much Shireen. I think Brave will come up a bit more Rosier on your skin tone with some more hints of brown πŸ™‚ regardless I think it will look gorgeous on you! ❀ I don't think it will wash you out at all xoxoxo

  29. I’m loving this lipstick shade…it is beautiful!

    looking forward to reading your blog when I got back- it definitely didn’t
    disappoint! xx
