This was my very first MAC lipstick, and it's finally at the end of its life (after almost two years, and I NEVER keep a lipstick for that long). When I go to my MAC store next week, I'll definitely be picking up a second tube of this baby. There's just not enough to describe how much of a perfect YLBB it is for me and for so many other women out there. This is totally the epitome of that perfect light neutral pink. Not blue-toned, and certainly not a yellow-pink. Very creamy, and not drying. Feels comfortable on the lips, but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's moisturizing or anything like that. I haven't noticed it losing its shine on the lips after a certain amount of time, so that's another plus. Goes well with almost any other makeup: cool tones, or warm tones. So this is one of those 'no-brainer' lipsticks that you can just slap on when you're half-asleep, without an idea in the world of what your face is going to look like when you're done, and it just looks good.
Only downside is that it doesn't last more than an hour on me, but it's not a high maintenance color, so I can live with it. And it certainly doesn't stop me from giving it 5 lippies! I have heard that Maybelline's Born With It is a supposed dupe, and I may have to check that out, but that's not in any way going to stop me from picking this up again in the very near future! :)
I was dying to buy a lipstick for aaaaaages from MAC because of all the high reviews I had seen from youtubers. I decided on the Creme Cup shade in the 'Cremesheen' section. I absolutely ADORE the texture it first gives you. The colour almost matches my lip colour however, it gives my lips a boost of colour. This lipstick will not last you all day, probably less than an hour on my lips. I really recommend MAC lipsticks however and will definitely be purchasing another shade!
I absolutely loooove this color on me!! It goes so well with my skin color and it isnt drying on the lips. I love pink lipsticks and this one is just amazing. It's my go to whenever I'm unsure I know I can wear this and always look great!!
if you hate the dryness of frost formulas and love angel's shade then creme cup will work for you! i loved angel but couldnt stand how much it dried out my lips. creme cup on the other hand, is more creamy (as it has a cremesheen formula) and its not that drying. naturally you cant say its moisturising too but its "bearable" (though angel wasnt for me). of course if you apply a lip balm first and / or a lip gloss (or clear gloss) on top of creme cup it solves the problem (something that unfortunately didnt happen for me with angel).
I love this lipstick many people crave and talk about this stunning lipstick!! Its a lovely pale pink which can be an everyday wear.
Perfect light pink. This is not too blue toned, and not crazy obnoxious in your face pink. This is a perfect subtle pink lip. It's like the next step closer to pink after nude. Very very pretty.
After buying MAC's Crosswires I definitely had to buy another lipstick from the Cremesheen formula. I wasn't sure which one to buy since there are so so SO many pretty colors and I really couldn't decide! Then I started reading some reviews and found Creme Cup which I know is like reaaally popular amongst youtubers and in general. So I spent my nights reading reviews and watching videos.. I wasn't sure about the color since it's a pinkish/nude and I thought it wouldn't suit me at all but the swatches were so pretty so I had to get it.
And I must say... I'm really impressed! Usually I'm not someone who wears pinkish lipsticks but Creme Cup doesn't even look that pink if you try it on. It's prettier in real life then on pictures in my opinion. I also bought Hue and Ruby Woo and I definitely will repurchase this again if I run out. I highly recommend this and I believe it will suit any skin type! :)
I wish this would work for me, I see it on other people and it looks amazing. I lean more neutral than anything and I love nude lipsticks but this doesnt work. It washes me out.
I adore this colour...... I bought it because I was looking for a pale colour which can be worn daily with ease (I usually get drawn to darker colours). I have fair skin, and I have to say that this works best when I've either got a good bit of bronzer on, or some pink blush, for example 'Gentle'. This lipstick really brings out the pink in a blush, and is really nice when used with a beauty powder too for an overall lovely look :)
I have to be careful applying this as I have dry lips and it has a tendency to exaggerate the dryness. Just have to make sure I exfoliate and mosturise the lips before applying! :)
HG material for me! It's the perfect baby pink lipstick for my NC44 complexion. I can't believe it's taken me this long to buy it. Perfect for the spring and summer.
