MAC Hip N Happy Lip Liner – the perfect base for pinks and nudes

mac hip n happy Lip liners are a really big thing at the moment, did you know you can even get lip liner tattooed on your lips?!? I prefer to go for something a lot less permanent, at the moment my absolute favourite is Hip N Happy from MAC. Hip N Happy is a cool toned, blue based pink shadow which comes in a pencil form that can be sharpened. ย The formula is creamy and super easy to use, however I do find it can drag just a tiny bit on my lips, but it’s not enough to worry me as it doesn’t actually pull.

I like this shade so much that I often chose to wear it alone. It lasts all day and is the perfect nude pink for my skin tone. It is also a shade which if you have naturally pinky lips you could use to have a go at the whole overdrawing trend without looking too ridiculous.

Hip n Happy goes perfectly under my most used pink lipsticks such as ‘Saint Germain’ by MAC, Lime Crimes ‘Great Pink Planet’ and ‘Lick the Icing’ by Australis. I also often wear it under my more nude shades just to brighten them up a bit. You can see in the swatches below it wears really nicely under ‘Tea Rose’ by E.L.F (which is my fav pinkish nude shade of all time and you need to try it asap) and also how it slightly brightens my Australis Velourlips in Pa-ree.

I tried to add in a shot of me wearing Hip n Happy on it’s own, but turns out that my i-phone quality Instagram snaps won’t cut it on a bigger screen. However click here to check out my Instagram and have a look. Do you have Hip N Happy or any other MAC lip liners? I’m thinking about investing in some more and would love some suggestions!
