I love pairing Myth with baby pink and pale peach lipgloss. It is a vanilla shade with a subtle peachy tone to it. I really can't wear it alone as its just too pale for my skintone but it's fabulous for canceling out my lips natural hue underneath lipgloss.
I avoided this lipstick forever since so many people said it gave them death lips, looks like a concealer, washed them out, etc. But I saw a You Tube video of a girl with a similar skin tone so I then ordered it off of Nordstrom's site. I'm happy to report that it does not make me look dead! I can't believe I've avoided this colour for so long. On me, it shows up as a pinky beige nude. Myth reminds me of a ligher version of peachstock. I'm not sure if I will repurchase since I reach for Peachstock more. As far as MAC lipsticks go, Peachstock is still number one for me. Its a very nice colour, but still is not perfect. So I took one lippie off.
I have medium to tan skin and black hair, so its extremely hard to find a good nude lipstick that doesn't make me look dead! But this one I really love. It has peachy undertones so it works with tan skin. I have read reviews saying its drying, but I haven't noticed it being dry at all, even with a lip liner underneath and no chapstick. The staying power isn't great though unfortunately. It does last about an hour so make sure you bring it with you when your going out. Other than that I really do love it! Perfect nude color!
This is my absolute favorite lipstick. It took the place of Fleshpot. I get compliments all the time from people wanting to know what I'm wearing. I wear it with a cheap Rimmell clover pink lip liner and clear gloss :)
This is my go to lipsticks!! It's actually one of the first lipsticks i bought from MAC. Its a really neutrally-peachy colour. For me though i have pigmented lips so it evens it out to a more very light pinkish colour, that is why i love it! I have to admit though I dont wear this lipstick in the summertime because my skin is darker obviously! But winter is soon approaching so im going to have to stock up on this lipstick ! Some people worry that it might give them that 'dead zombie' look, BUT if you pair it up with a nice colour lipgloss it would look fab :)
3 1/2 stars.
Was given this lipstick by a friend who shyly confessed, "I used to be really into this color when I wore platform flip flops and highlighted my hair." Ha!
Upon first application (swiped it on my lips sans liner, primer, or gloss, just to check it out), I decided to toss it into my professional kit for shoots where I needed to make a model look sick or dead. (Absolutely zero sarcasm intended. In fact, I might purchase another for that very use.) However, after playing around with it a bit, it's really grown on me!
Some reviewers have noted that with a truly great lipstick, you shouldn't HAVE to work with it to make it look good. And while I understand where they're coming from (every girl needs a few trusty shades she can throw on sans mirror on her way out the door without worrying about looking like she forgot to take off her Halloween zombie get-up), I don't have any issue working with products and finding ways to utilize them to their full potential. I mean, think about it - So many of us spend time exfoliating, prepping, lining, glossing. . . What's a couple of extra minutes to find what could potentially be an amazing look for you?
I've actually come up with one of my favorite new looks using this lipstick - I apply one light swipe (it's very concentrated, and foundation-y and thick if you over-apply), blot, and then mix in a teeny bit of berry stain. It produces a beautiful MLBB appearance that everyone compliments me on, takes literally five seconds longer than applying the lipstick on its own, and lasts all day. I also like mixing it with a dab of sparkly gloss, for a fun, nude shade that is a fantastic compliment to a dark smokey eye. (Perfect for the upcoming holiday party season.)
Bottom line: It's not for everyone (but what is?), and certainly NOT for the girl who likes to swipe on a lipstick and be done with it. But if you enjoy playing with unique shades and creating new looks, I would almost call this a must-have! continued >>
For Reference, I'm NC 25/30 with Yellow undertones.
I find that if I wear this lipstick alone w/o any lipgloss or any other lipstick color combination, it may come out looking a bit BLAH, similar to smearing some concealer on my lips.
BUT...I do like this color when I pair it with other shades that ae in the pinky coral or pink nude colors, and then I top it off with some MAC Big Baby Plushglass. The color is very clean and healhty pink lips. I love it.
The consistency of the Myth lipstick is smooth and it does last a while on my lips. The packaging is simple (black and silver) and compact. No frills.
I do recommend this lipstick. And for girls that can wear this alone, I am jealous..;)
I love this lipstick its soo pretty with my dark eye makeup. Im nc30 and it covers my lips well, comes on as a very very pale peach. The only thing I hate is that it doesnt last long at all. I maybe get 1 hour wear out of it. However if your into the natural look and hardly wear any other makeup you probably wouldnt like this as it doesnt look good with a naked face
I have literally used about 15 of these lipsticks!! I adore this colour, and buy a few at once so i don't run out! It is such a perfect shade for paler skin (I'm NW20) and I don't think there are any dupes for this out there. I like to apply mine over a pale pink lipliner to give it a pinkish colour. Soooo pretty, i also like to layer Florabundance lipglass over this, the perfect match in my opinion.
I went to MAC yesterday because I had some B2M's to turn in and since I'm always on the hunt for a nude lipstick I figured I'd give Myth a try. I had also heard rave reviews on Myth from several magazines. TBH, I'm not sure about this lipstick. I'm NC40 skintone and I find that it is very light on my lips. I will agree that if your looking for that "androgenous look" this is perfect. I did swatched this on the back of my hand at the store, and it looked like a very nude beige w/slight pink undertones so I thought this would be perfect. However when I wear it alone I get a concealer look. The color has alot of grey casts to it. I did apply it using MAC's Hodgepodge liner and topped it w/NARS Turrkish Delight and it was pretty. I'm kinda torn b/c on it's own I don't like it. When I add other colors and a liner to it it's good. A good lipstick IMO shouldn't need other adjustments. I also tried dabbing it on vs swiping it on and it was better. With Myth I find that I could easily achieve the same look by using concealer on my lips and adding a liner and gloss to it. As far as it being dry it is. I would recommend exfoliating your lips prior and also use chapstick before applying, because it will accentuate any dry spots/lines. I'm giving Myth 3 lippies b/c I've only tried it once and I feel as though I need to experiment w/different looks before I give up on it.
