Today’s post is a quick comparison between two of MAC’s most popular lipsticks — as I’m sure you could tell by the title! Crème Cup vs Angel!
COLOR: They are both light neutral pinks, but Crème Cup is slightly lighter and a smidgen more blue toned.
FINISH: Angel is a frost, although many bloggers dispute this fact. The more I wear Angel the more the frost becomes apparent. If you take a look in the swatch below you can see that it has a frosty sheen. Crème Cup is a Cremesheen and applies like butter. It is very smooth and creamy — for lack of a better word!
WEAR: Cremesheens tend to have pretty short wear times. Crème Cup typically lasts 2 hours while Angel can wear up to 4.
Unfortunately they both cling to any dryness that you may have on your lips, so proper exfoliation is key!

Overall I would have to say that I prefer Crème Cup, mainly because I enjoy the Cremesheen finish much more than Frosts!
Do you own Angel or Crème Cup? Which is your favorite?
