Lovely natural color I’m quite tanned skinned and it’s not too light or too dark (I’m quite hard to please with lipstick). Goes on well and stays on well the only thing I would say is that it’s a bit drying so I put lipsalve on over it.

I got this today on a Back 2 Mac. I’m NC15 with quite pigmented lips, meaning I can’t get away with the same kind of nude shades as other pale folks. I find pinks tend to wash me out so I have inevitably ended up with more brown based hues for my nude lippie shades.
I usually wear Velvet Teddy as my go to nude and had originally gone in to B2M with finding something a tad lighter as spring is (sort of!) here in London. I tried Honeylove, Yash, Half n Half and they frankly all looked awful on me - overly pale and chalky. Even the lovely SA helping me was shocked.
We tried out Spirit on a whim. Yes, it is a browner nude and definitely not lighter than my beloved Velvet Teddy - but it works. When I got home I dabbed a little Angel in the centre and it pinked up the middle a bit. (Don’t ask me WHY I’m earth I have Angel - frosted pinks are not for me, but sometimes helpful for layering). Tried it with Soar lip liner too - all worked!
As I said previously, it’s definitely not the paler nude I was hoping to find, but I do like it. I like the satin finish too. I love mattes but they can be hard work at times. This lipstick is creamy, pigmented, has decent longevity and has a nice even fade as wear time progresses. I quite like it slightly blotted down.
It’s one that can be swiped on for a quick ‘5 minutes and dash out the door’ look that can still look pulled together. I think it will look great with a bold eye for a night out. Between this, Mehr, Twig and Velvet Teddy, I doubt I will NEED to repurchase anytime soon but when I eventually use it up, I probably will grab another tube.

The. Perfect. Nude. Lipstick.

Well for my skintone anyway.

I love Velvet Teddy which is a stunning nude shade but this one is just slightly more well suited to my colouring and it looks fabulous. It is how it's described, a muted pinky-beige brown and it's a satin finish.

Like most MAC lipsticks it is very pigmented and lasts very well on the lips without drying or cracking. Love it.

A month ago I did a change of seasons haul. I composed a list of lipsticks to check out and headed to Nordstrom. I mainly was interested in Whirl, which I never considered before and was quite curious. Spirit was not on my list, but did catch my eye. I loved Whirl, but without even swiping Spirit I thought it was too close, so decided against it. That day I purchased 3 plus had a back Mac. I got Whirl, Taupe, Verve, and Photo. A few wks later I was checking out blushes, so figured why not at least try on Spirit.....Well, instant love at first site!!!! It's in the fam of Whirl,but lighter so very wearable for day, especially if you opt for a real casual look. The satin finish also gives it a whole different vibe. This has become a new fall favorite for day!! If it seems boring to you, just give it a try. It's very deceiving with it's low key WOW.....

I love MAC lipsticks. Long lasting, not too drying and great vanillaish smell. I reach for this almost everyday, this will be a perfect Fall color. I wanted an everyday nude for work the sales rep. recommended Spirit for me. This looks great with my dark hair and makes my blue eyes pop. It's brown with pink undertones I also bought Velvet Teddy and that one is lighter and has a more peach undertone.

This, to me, is what Velvet Teddy is to everyone else. It's a little darker than VT but they have a similar color. It is also less intense and less pink than Twig, which I thought at first to be my perfect mlbb. No, THIS is my PERFECT mlbb lipstick.

I am C3.5 NC35 with quite a lot of green undertones! Spirit looks like a pink brown on me :)

This was one of my first lipsticks to my MAC collection and I love it so much! It's my go-to during the Fall and Winter seasons. I am NC25-30 and it suites my fair skin. It has a beautiful taupe undertone and is so comfortable on the lips. It is also long-wearing.

Love this. MAC has so many shades that accomplish the Kylie Jenner lip look and this is one. It's got the brown, but is pinky and muted. It's so hard to choose which one is my favorite.

Spirit is my go to lipstick. If you are medium skinned with yellow undertones, I would definitely recommend this lipstick. It is described as a "muted pinky beige brown" which is what it is, although there is not much pink - it is more brown. To me, it is like the Kylie Jenner brown lip colour. When I first bought it I didn't really like it but have found myself reaching for it all the time. It is one of those stunning, effortless colours which can be worn daily or on a night out. I love how sophisticated this looks. Don't be put of by the brown - it is more of a muted beigey brown, honestly it is gorgeous. It's a satin finish so it is a semi- matte finish. A lot of people say that this particular finish is drying. I do not find this to be the case. It is comfortable, long wearing and fades nicely without gunking up in the corners of the mouth or leaving that dreaded white cast line. MAC lipsticks are not cheap but for the quality, the unique colour, the edible vanillary scent, the comfort and the long lastingness of this lipstick, I'm not complaining. I would definitely repurchase. Seriously guys, check spirit out. At first, even I was hesitant about this but decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad I did.
