Swatches: Angel, Hue, Myth

Over the past few days I have been asked what my holy grail lipsticks are. The answer to that question would have to be the first 3 MAC lipstick shades that I have ever purchased - Hue, Angel, and Myth.

These shades are very popular and are permanent. I always get backups when I am running low and have been turning to these lipsticks for my everyday look.

Hopefully these swatches will help anyone who is looking to purchase these colors online and has no way to swatch them in person. I know how hard it could be to make a decision on the perfect shade to pick. I always search the net to find swatches of lippies or other products I want to get if I can't personally get my own swatch due to lack of time, or just the ease of purchasing online.

Look how strangely my lippies wear down. There is a chart that was created that claims to be able to name off personality traits of people depending on the way their lipsticks wear down. According to the chart my flat top lipstick wear down means I am conservative, value my morals, and am careful about appearance. I guess, it kind of sums me up. If you want to check out my post featuring the Lipstick Personality Chart - click here.

If you are looking for more swatches on this blog, you can find the swatch label in the categories section on my left hand sidebar. You can choose from lipsticks and lipglosses. I will be adding more cosmetic category swatches later on as well.

  8. I thought you might need a man's perspective and, lucky for you, I happen to be quite secure in my masculinity. "Hue" is definitely the best of the three. It's not too flamboyant, but you could still see it.

    "Hue" is kind of like, "you look good but it seems like you're not even trying... how is that fair?" You know what I mean, love?

  9. I love Angel and Myth! I don't have Hue yet though. I love Cremesheen l/s in Creme Cup too since it looks a lot like Angel to me.

  10. Oh mine wear down the same way. I thought it was just the way I applied it lol. How do your mac lipsticks look so creamy on? Do you put lip balm on right before? They are always so dry looking on me that I never even wear any of them

  11. Hey Kay I didn't put any lip balm on before this, but my lips had some on left over from the day. I used Palmer's Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick. I love that stuff and wear it everyday at night. I'll post about it later so you can see what Im talking about.

  12. Tiff - Yeah, Creme Cup is definitely like Angel. I also really love it! Its become an HG to me, but I dont want to wear it too much because I love it so much! hehe

  13. Katrina!

    The swatches look great!! Those colors look a lot more creamy and more moisturizing than revlon matte. Did you put gloss over it or no? Thanks!

  14. Thanks Sylvia! No I dont have any gloss on over them, those colors end up being very creamy cuz of the "finishes". Myth is not really that creamy, it comes on pretty thick, but rubbing your lips together kind of warms it up and makes it creamier.

  15. I love all of the swatches but my favourite is deffs hue.
    I love the look you have achieved because your lips don't look dry or heavy with the lipsticks on (if you know what i mean).
    I have never bought a proper lipstick before because i'm a gloss person and now i want to buy hue after looking long and hard. How do you achive the half lipstick/ half gloss look, i just love it :)
    Btw if you reply i'm called Becky xx
