MAC Mocha Lipstick

After featuring this shade in last week's 5 Minute Face post, I thought it'd be a good idea to take a slightly better look at - what I think - is quite a chameleon of a colour...


Mocha Satin Lipstick is described by MAC as a "peachy yellow brown", a description which is undoubtably hard to argue with. Whilst the strongest tones in this shade are dark, Mocha has the ability to pull slightly pinker in certain lights, a trait which makes it suitable for both cool and warm complexions.

Mocha swatched

Although stocked as a permanent shade, Mocha is currently available as part of the Surf Baby! range - embellished in bright white and yellow packaging. Whilst it might look fairly boring compared to the likes of Hibiscus or Bust Out!, as far as summer nudes go this really is a great candidate for flushed and natural looking lips.


Mocha applied to heavily pigmented lips (blotted)

When applied the colour transfers with a moderately opaque texture, making it the perfect density for those of you with more pigmented lips. Once blotted I find it turns an almost burnt shade of coral which is not only gorgeous but very, very wearable. Although after time I find the satin formula somewhat drying, it's nothing that a slick of lip balm can't medicine. If you're planning a trip down to your local MAC counter anytime soon then this is definitely worthy of a swatch or two...

Mocha Lipstick is available from MAC counters worldwide and maccosmetics.co.uk for £14

This was one of the first MAC lipsticks I ever purchased years and years ago. It is gorgeous! I think I'll have to repurchase. Looks fab on you!

That looks really nice on you. I was expecting it to look so much darker on.

that is, indeed, a GREAT nude! everytime i hear the word mocha as a name for a product, i always get taken aback by how wearable it actually is!

I find a lot of the MAC satin formula lipsticks drying too - which is a shame because without that niggle they would be perfect as the colour options are fab. Not sure this would work on me, probably a little too warm toned, but it's definitely interesting compared to the usual array of pinks/nudes.
