How Did MAC Brave Lipstick Work For Me?

The MAC Brave Lipstick comes in a sleek black and silver bullet packaging which is the regular type of MAC packaging that is super sturdy and also travel friendly. The MAC Lipsticks has a weight to it so it is easy to figure out the fake ones from the real lipsticks. The cap clicks shut so it is easy to carry around in a purse without having to worry about it opening in the middle of the day. Like all the MAC Lipsticks this one also has the subtle vanilla fragrance to it which I really like. The MAC Brave is a beigy pink with slight mauve undertones and has a satin finish to it. I find this shade to be quite similar to the MAC Cosmo Lipstick. If you have either one of these you could give the other one a skip without having a second thought.

MAC Brave Review

The MAC Brave Lipstick has a really creamy and smooth texture, it glides onto the lips oh so effortlessly and goes on opaque in a single swipe which is amazing. The MAC Brave Lipstick lasts on me for around 3 to 4 hours with light snacking but it won’t last a full blown meal. It keeps the lips well hydrated and it wears off evenly and doesn’t stain the lips as it wears off. The MAC Brave Lipstick shade will be best suited for those with light to medium skin tones and will probably wash out medium plus to dark skin tones.

If you have already bought this shade but found it too pale for you, I would recommend using a lip liner like the MAC Soar or MAC Whirl to line the lips to get the best out of this lipstick. If are looking a shade similar to this, then you can try the MAC Twig Lipstick as it is tad darker. I personally love pairing the MAC Brave shade with dark smoky eyes and it will be perfect for any evening makeup but it also looks great with the no makeup makeup looks as it will be a perfect MLBB shade. I have a couple of drugstore dupes for the MAC Brave Lipstick which are the Maybelline Warm Me Up Lipstick and the L’Oreal Tender Berry. Overall, MAC Brave is a beautiful MLBB shade that will look amazing on a variety of different complexions.
