Review: MAC Modesty Lipstick


Dear MAC,


It's no secret that I love you, but I feel that I neglect some of the best things you have to offer. Your permanent line. I flock to you for your limited editions, but forget the classics that made you YOU. I'm sorry. I'm trying to change my ways, one product at a time.


Love,
Bailey xoxo

It might be a touch dramatic, but it's true. I totally overlook MAC's permanent line. I know there are a ton of products that I want to try, I just get blinded by the limited editions. Don't judge, I bet most of you reading this do too. When I placed my last order (yes, of limited edition products...) I also picked up a permanent lipstick: Modesty.

Modesty is described as being a 'muted neutral pink' which is spot on. It is more pink than your average nude, making it super easy to wear. It is the perfect lipstick for a MLBB (my lips but better) look. Also, the creamsheen finish. I love creamsheens since they not only have a bit of shine to them, they aren't as drying as other formulas (I'm looking at you, satin.) The creamsheen formula makes this an excellent lipstick in terms of wearability. I find that it lasts quite well on me, about 4-5 hours without eating or drinking, less if I layer it with a gloss.

While I do love Modesty, I had to wonder how it differed from other nude hued lipsticks in my collection. I kept the comparison to just MAC, because I if I did all of my nudes we'd be here a while. As you can see, Modesty is more rose toned than A Perfect Day and Bare Again. At the same time it isn't as yellow toned as Peachstock, as it leans towards being a true nude.

Do you have a favourite nude MAC lipstick? Which shade is it?

  1. I've wanted to try Blankety as well.

    Don't you hate when things disappear? I lost Butter London (All Hail the Queen) and it's driving my crazy. I don't want to buy another one, because that will be when I find it.

  2. I have yet to try modesty! Now it's on my list. My favorite is Blankety but it's lost among my makeup stash. I swear I looked so many times but it's still MIA =(

    Oh, yes foundations... I have a few too many, so I'm totally in that boat!

  5. This isn't normally the type of color I go for, but it looks so beautiful on you! Next time I go to my MAC counter I'll have to swatch this.
