Hello my lovelies,
So I am a lover of lipstick, a true die hard fan. I cannot go outside the house with make up on and not apply lipstick. It makes my face and I LOVE wearing bright lips. Nudes are not really for me, I love trying new colours!
My first high end lipstick was MAC and I have never looked back. Of course I have other brands of lipsticks but they never seem to fail me. I remember my first time going into a MAC store and buying ‘Girl About Town’ and the love story began. I now have 15 of them and I’m always on the hunt to pick up new ones there are just so many colours to choose from!
Russian Red, Matte Finish
Who doesn’t love a classic red? Weirdly this is one of my least used lipsticks. I always think it’s good to have red lipsticks in your collection but I never am drawn to wearing them..
Girl About Town, Amplified
So I actually have two of these, my lovely friend Charlotte knew how much I loved this lipstick and picked me a second one up when she visited Las Vegas so I didn’t run out. This will always be one of my favorites, I think more so because it brings me back to walking into MAC for the first time and realising I was falling in love with make up. At the same time it is a beautiful bright pink shade.
Up the Amp, Amplified
So wow this is a bright purple, I don’t know why I picked this one up. I have worn it properly maybe once a few years ago. This summer I will whipping this out with no shame. I love a purple lip dark or light, who cares what other people think right?
So who doesn’t love this colour? The craze after Velvet Teddy and I love this so much. This is my favourite lipstick in my MAC collection at the moment. I am loving the dark nude lip and is perfect for day to day wear.
Velvet Teddy, Matte
So yes I own this, of course I do! It took me a long while to get my hands on it and I was happy at the time I got it but it’s too dull for me now. It’s never something I am drawn to any more. I am determined to get the bottom of this and finish it though. This would be my first ever lipstick I have finished and I personally think this would be an amazing achievement.
A nice pink shade and a shade I don’t hear much about. More recently it isn’t a shade I am drawn to but it doesn’t offend me. When I am not wearing a lot of makeup this is the sort of shade I go towards. Who doesn’t love pink?
Speed Dial, Cremesheen
Another pink shade, ok yes I love pink. This has blue undertones which is probably why I am drawn to it more than speed dial. I want to look like I have pearly white teeth and is exactly what this does. If I am undecided on what to wear I normally end up wearing this.
Steam Heat, Satin
So who doesn’t love limited edition packaging? I think this is what drew me to this lipstick. Again this isn’t a lipstick I wear an awful lot but it is a beautiful red shade. I think it’s because it’s a satin finish I’m not really drawn to it, not my most favourite finish from MAC I’m afraid..
So this is my summer lipstick of choice. I love wearing orange lipsticks in the summer and MAC have completely nailed it with this one. I have the lip liner to match and when the warmer months come in the UK this is what I’ll be wearing!
Antique Velvet, Matte
So I love this colour, in fact I am obsessed. This is the latest addition to my collection and I love it so much. It isn’t to everyone’s taste but I will rock it and I don’t care what anyone else thinks. Who doesn’t want a deep dark brown colour with a hint of purple?
I like this colour, it’s more of a pinky coral colour. I wear this again in the summer but it’s a colour I always forget I have. I’m not sure why its a forgettable shade in my collection and I’m hoping I will wear this more..
Lady Danger, Matte
This is another summer colour, a red/orange shade which I love. Another newish lipstick to my collection which I adore. Stupidly I brought this towards the end of summer so I haven’t had much wear out of this yet. Roll on the summer months!
Hot Tahiti, Glaze
I really don’t like this one much. First off I don’t like the glaze formula I’m so much more of a matte girl as you can tell. It’s just all a bit pointless. Annoyingly I really like the shade and my sister pulls it off so well but it just isn’t for me.
Last but not least it’s a purple. In fact one of my most favourite purples that I own. It’s everything I want in a colour. As it’s a satin I do always wear a lip liner underneath because I like the dark matte lip as apposed to a more sheer finish. Personal preference though of course.
So there is my lovely MAC lipstick collection that I am sure will be growing as time goes by. As you can tell I love the matte and amplified finishes. Let me know what your favourite ones are as I am always on the hunt to try new colours!
