I'm about to make a pretty big statement...I have a new absolute favourite lipstick. It's pretty on-trend at the moment, so maybe this won't last forever, but for the last few months I have been unable to put it down, I've literally worn it most days. Considering I used to be pretty big into red lips, this is a big deal that I'm getting so much wear out of a nude.

The shade is MAC Whirl. I wrote about MAC Velvet Teddy (blogpost here) a while back, as it was the first nude I'd found which I really felt suited me. I'd say the shade Whirl is a very similar brown nude, however, it is a shade darker. It has a matte finish which looks amazing and makes it super long-lasting. I find I hardly need to reapply this lipstick, even when I don't use a liner (as shown in these pictures).

I find this the perfect shade to throw on which just automatically makes you look more put together. This 90s brown lip is really on-trend, and this is the perfect lipstick for that look. I think the shade suits my skin tone and it works with pretty much any makeup look and outfit, and I'll be honest, I feel pretty badass when I wear it. All you really need is lipstick.

If you're looking for a brown-toned nude lipstick I'd recommend giving Whirl a whirl (ha). I'm wearing this lip so much right now!
