For my very first Mac lipstick, I was determined to find a “My Lips But Better” lipstick.  After doing lots of swatching, I finally decided on the Mac Patisserie!  When I first saw Lily Pebbles talking about the Patisserie on her {Lip Product Addict Tag} video back in May, I was intrigued by the brownish pink/nude color that looks perfect for my skin.  Then I saw Sarah from Sarah Loves Makeup mentioned it on her {So You Want to Buy Your First Mac Lipstick} post, I was convinced that I have to at least do a swatch at the store and try it out.  So I did.  And the rest is history.

The color of the lipstick is just so beautiful and looks so natural on my lips.  The brownish hue is perfect for people with darker color lips like me, the pink gives my lips a warm tone which makes them look healthy and lively, and the nude is a perfect mixer for combining the pink and brown, making the lipstick color look so natural when applied.  The slight shimmer makes my lips look fuller, and the formula is very creamy and doesn’t really dry my lips out.

I’m so excited to add it to my lipstick collection, and cannot wait to add this to my everyday look!  What’s your “my lips but better” lipstick?

    1. It took me a while too! I usually check out bloggers that have similar skin tone as me and see what they use, then do my own swatching at the store to test them out. Good luck!!
