MAC Lipstick for wedding day? (or other brands)

Hey Ladies,

My MUA had put on MAC Viva Glam V on me for trials and that is my default, but I'm thinking I could go with something a little more colorful (probably in the pink family). I am fair skinned with medium brown hair, cool blonde highlights.  Eyes are going to be classic--mocha brown and white shimmer for the bottom, pink blush.  Eyes are green if that matters with lipstick.  I heard Angel is a popular Mac color but not sure if it would wash me out.  Please share what you are using or any suggestions you may have for me! Thanks so much!

  • I love viva glam v! Their new Archie line has a great peachy pink as well but i cant remember the name. You should totally go to a MAC store and play. They have SOOOO many options! Bobbi Brown has great lip colors, and so does Chanel. Smashbox also has great colors and a photofinish powder that can set the lipstick so it doesnt budge! (I work for Nordstrom in cosmetics... I get to experiment alot lol)

  • I used Mac Viva Glam V A52 color and I LOVED it. It's like a shimmer pinkish and it went perfect with my brown complexion. I had brown hair with copper highlights.
  • Well, I was matched up at a mac counter for royal azalea lipstick w/ st germain lipglass--pretty but a little too much now for wedding day.  Fun colors though and I will keep it for spring.  I contacted my MUA and one of her suggestions was Mac Fabby Lipstick.  Looks pretty--spunch of rosey pinkiness but not too over the top for wedding.  Now it's a matter of trying that out.  I read somewhere on the boards that Mac Dervish Lip Liner goes well with Mac Fabby Lipstick for weddings.  Any experience with Fabby ladies?
