MAC Hug Me Lipstick

I am not a MAC addict and I think that their prices are quite steep without a PRO discount, but I like most of their products. I picked up MAC Hug Me (£15.50) when I got the Absolutely It Lip Pencil and they became my go to lip combo. Sooo gorgeous!

I am sure you've read about Hug Me plenty of times, because it is quite a popular shade, but I think that it deserves all the praise. It is a colour everyone can wear, a true 'my lips but better' shade with a lovely lustre finish. You can wear it sheer or build up the intensity for a more opaque effect. It is a pinky nude and the formula feels super hydrating and comfortable on the lips. You can actually see the moisture on the swatches. 

If you are looking for an 'everyday nude' that won't make you look weird (MAC Myth made me look like a ghost!), you will love Hug Me. It suits everyone.

Do you have Hug Me in your collection? What other pink toned nudes would you recommend?



  1. Looks stunning on you, I really like the colour xox

  2. This is a gorgeous colour! It might have to be my next MAC treat.

  3. a pink toned nude i absolutely love is COSMO which is an amplified creme finish, so it super creamy

    i actually bought it from duty free at the airport so it was only £12 ;)


  4. My favorite pinky nude is Too Faced Nude Beach, but Hug Me looks beautiful as well. I never knew Hug Me was a Lustre. Great post!

  7. Love the shade, but I couldn't pick out any nudes since they're currently sold out :D But I'm pretty happy with my new Amorous :)

  8. You should try MAC's Viva Glam II on top of your Absolutely It lipliner ! One of the girls working at MAC recommended it to me once, and it's quickly become one of my favourite lip combos. It gives off a perfect Plummy Kylie Jenner nude!

  9. This shade is beautiful :) I love these kind of colours recently.
    Definitley should try out this shade soon! I have been loving using Hue on my lips as it complements most of my everyday natural looks.

    Thank you for posting, Hope you have a nice day~ ♥

  10. Such a beautiful shade for everyday!


  11. This is so pretty and I've just gotten my first MAC lipstick and want just one more for now and this might be it. And also I have Please Me so Hug Me would be a great partner.

  12. Only today I bloggeed about my first mac lipstick, which I only bought on the weekend. This is really pretty, might have to invest!


  13. This shade is lovely. I have been adding so many MAC lipsticks to my collection recently x

  14. I absolutely love this colour! I'm more into brown-nudes though :)

  15. I love Mac lipsticks, but I'm still in search of my perfect nude. I do love Mac Mehr which is similar to this, but it's matte so not an every day one. I think I might pick this up as I wanted a sheeny version xx

  16. I agree their prices are a bit steep. That, along with their service is one of the main reasons I avoid MAC for the most part. Besides I'd rather spend my money at Sephora and get the points, lol. But I have to say if anything makes me want to spend money at MAC its their lipsticks. I only ever hear great things.

  18. Such a lovely shade! Love it!

  19. Oooh I love this! Reminds me of MAC's Syrup which is also a great everyday shade but I'm loving MAC'S Faux at the moment.

  20. Hug Me used to be one of my favourites from MAC years ago, but I have never repurchased it. I think I might soon though. x


  21. It's such a pretty shade. I find Patisserie the ultimate "my lips but better" shade, but this color is so so feminine!
