Mac Hue | Guest Post featuring Gemma from Miss Makeup Magpie

Hi beauties, I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend and have been enjoying the lovely sunshine, let's hope its the start of more good weather to come our way - Fingers crossed. Today I have somewhat of a different kind of post for you all, never been done here before on Miss Sunshine & Sparkle, but a post I'm sure you will all love reading, I certainly did. I would like to introduce to you all the beautiful Gemma who blogs over at Miss Makeup Magpie - I'm sure you all know her by now, but I would love it if you could take a peek at her blog as it truly is amazing, its one of my faves :) Gem has kindly agreed to do a special guest post on Miss Sunshine & Sparkle and talk to you beauties about her much loved Mac Lippie in Hue.... Enjoy beauty babes ;)

Hi my name is Gemma and I blog over at MissMakeupMagpie, I am so excited to be able to write a guest post for the Miss Sunshine & Sparkle, as I've been a huge fan and an avid reader for ages now. I hope you enjoy it, and make sure you check out the post Danielle kindly wrote for my blog too.
If you own an average sized lipstick collection, there's most definitely an easy to wear nude shade within it, that you can always rely on to give you that 'your lips but better' look that we all strive to achieve from time to time. My reliable go-to nude is MAC's Hue, which is one of MAC's most popular lipstick shades, and it's easy to see why. Hue is a Glaze finish lipstick which will impart your lips with a sheer wash of colour, without looking frosty. In the bullet, Hue looks like a rosy peach shade.. however on my lips, Hue doesn't appear to add any colour to my lips due to it being such a perfect match for my natural lip colour
MAC Hue came into my life thanks to the beautiful Ren, who writes one of my top five favourite beauty blogs; Beauty by Ren. You have to check out her blog, as it's just amazing and she is incredibly lovely. I got to choose any MAC lipstick I wanted, as well as some other gorgeous things, which you can see here
Hue is just my perfect nude lipstick, that goes with any makeup look I'm wearing without me rocking a concealer lip look. Unfortunately It isn't a long wearing lipstick, averaging at about 2 hours wear. However it's the kind of lipstick I can apply on the go without a mirror without looking like I've got the lips of a clown, making this the perfect handbag lipstick. I have read some reviews where people have described Hue as being quite drying on the lips, but I have to disagree as I've not experienced it to be at all drying. I would say that if you have a more pigmented natural lip colour, Hue might be a touch too pale for you, but it's so lovely for lighter skin tones  Hue just makes my makeup look slightly more polished and put together, and for that reason its a MAC lipstick collection staple that'd I'd always replace.

What's your favourite 'your lips but better' lipstick shade?
