Two of the lipsticks that really stood out for me were Creme In Your Coffee and Shy Girl. Both of these are Cremesheen and smell wonderful - there's a hint of sugar about them which you can't really taste but get a whiff of as you apply it. Which is always nice. They are very different and therefore are going to suit very different occasions.

Creme In Your Coffee is named quite strangely I think - its not a creamy coffee colour nor is it a pale lipstick: its a lovely dark reddy brown which emulates the colour of the natural lip but much darker. It does last well on because of how pigmented it is and you only need to reapply every few hours or so (obviously more if you are eating and drinking whilst wearing it.)

I use this lipstick most days now as it goes with most make-up looks that I wear day to day.
Comparing it with Creme In Your Coffee is like comparing day and night. Shy Girl suits its name perfectly - its very understated and looks effortless on. Creme In Your Coffee is much stronger and bolder.
Both of these lipsticks are well worth a buy. They retail at £15 each from MAC Cosmetics.
