Mac Brave Lipstick

Mac BraveMac Brave swatchIt really didn’t take me long before I finally got my hands on the ever so popular Mac Brave. If you seen my last Mac lipstick post on Mac Mehr you may recall me lusting over this particular lipstick and of course by the time the post went live I had already purchased it. Typical. Now even if you don’t own Mac Brave you are probably aware of it through the hysteria that was created from the Kylie Jenner lip look. I know you are probably sighing at the mention of that again so forgetting the Kardashian connections, here is my latest Mac loving.

Now I mentioned Brave in my Mac Mehr post as they follow a very similar shading. Along with shades such as Twig and Faux these shades make up a range of similar 90s lip nude shades. Think mauve pink/brown colours that are the perfect my lips but better. Mac Brave takes more of a pink route similarly to Mehr but more muted. The soft pink shade is perfect for everyday wear and for something a little bolder it works perfectly paired with Mac Soar lipliner.

Mac Brave has a Satin finish which is probably my favourite finish of Mac lipstick. The formula is creamy to apply and feels comfortable (more so with lip balm underneath) but also has a demi-matte finish to it so feels a lot more long wearing.

I am super glad I picked this one up as I am loving it. It really is perfect for everyday wear and after picking it up in Duty Free it was pretty satisfying to save a few pounds!

Also, excitedly I wanted to let you all know that Styled by Lauren will be having a little makeover! Hopefully by the end of the week it will look a little different so I hope you like it but more on that later! Also, I now have a blog instagram account! Follow me @styledbylaurenblog!

  1. Definitely had my eye on Brave for a long time! I am a huge lover of Mehr, and my tube is actually almost finished *cries* so I’ve been debating between repurchasing Mehr or getting Brave instead (or maybe I need to get them both :p) My friend actually purchased Brave after we went shopping together because it looked amazing on her. It’s such a great shade!!!

  2. That’s such a pretty lip colour!
    Oh, I never actually knew that this one was linked with Kylie, I always thought it would’ve been a beig-y nude. ( Can you tell I distanced myself from that trend completely? haha 😀 )
    But it’s super pretty. I really might have a deeper look into it. 😀

    Lovely post!

    • Awesome! they are quite similar but Brave is slightly more muted! I like to think of Brave as the everyday one whereas Mehr is more of a night out kinda one as its a bit darker toned. I totally recommend both though they are so nice! No bother 🙂
