I can’t believe I haven’t posted and reviewed this lipstick sooner as it is one that I reach for quite regularly, and I have done for quite some time now. Brave is described by MAC Cosmetics as a ‘pink beige with white pearl’ and it is such a gorgeous lip shade that is ideal for everyday wear. I wear it religiously over MAC Cosmetic’s Soar lip pencil, it is such a match made in heaven let me tell you. Now although MAC mention ‘white pearl’ in the lipstick description, I wouldn’t let that put you off as it isn’t remotely frosty or metallic – it just adds a bit of depth and dimension to the colour to stop it from looking flat. In my opinion Brave is a medium cool pink with the slightest tinge of brown coming through and it will look fabulous against most skin tones. I’m not overly fond of the satin formula from MAC as it can be a little drying so I’d definitely recommend some decent prep with some lip scrub and a slick of lip balm. It is super pigmented, applies completely opaque in one foul swoop with a little sheen and it is a great neutral shade for every day wear. I found that Brave wore really well for around 3-4 hours so it has some decent staying power.
