MAC is my favourite brand when it comes to lipsticks as they have a wide variety of shades in many different formulas. Currently, I have twenty-nine of these in my collection. Eek! Do I plan on stopping there? Hell to the no. Some of you will probably think that's a tad obsessive but everyone has something, or a few things in my case, that they cannot help but buy. For instance, guys usually have quite a collection of video games, trainers and comic books. I have a thing for lipsticks, lingerie, jewellery, evening-wear dresses and high-heels. What can I say, I just can't help myself.
In today's post I'll be sharing swatches and a brief description of five of my favourite, go-to MAC lipsticks. These are all part of MAC's core collection so are all readily available to purchase. Let's begin.
Colour: Vivid bright coral-red
Description: Although red isn't a shade I gravitate towards very often, it's a classic colour that every woman needs to have in her collection. The red MAC lipsticks I have are Lady Danger, Diva, Ruby Woo and Russian Red. Lady Danger is by far my favourite as it's bold, vibrant and head-turning. The only downside to this lipstick is that it tends to dry out my lips an hour to two after application.
Colour: Dirty blue pink
Description: Despite having this shade for the longest time, I never get bored of it so carry it around with me in my bag for those just in case I need to spruce myself up moments. I love it! It stays put on my lips for a good few hours and doesn't require for me to use a lip liner prior to applying it. I've actually written an in-depth review on this product so click here if you'd like to read it.
Colour: Muted mauve-pink
Description: Hands down, this is the perfect nude lipstick as it creates that your lips but better look without drying them out. It's super creamy, glides on effortlessly and lasts for a good few hours. I feel that this will also compliment all skin tones.
Colour: Deep-tone beige
Description: Word on the street was that this was the reason behind Kylie Jenner's all of a sudden big lips. Psh! Who was she trying to fool? Ha! In actual fact she fooled a lot of you as this then went on to completely sell out both in store and online for months. I waited a long time before playing up to the hype as I was a little worried that this shade was going to completely wash me out. Thankfully, it doesn't. It's a gorgeous light brown shade that stays put for absolutely ages.
Colour: Dirty rose
Description: This is a gorgeous medium-dark brown shade and is the most recent addition to my growing collection. Initially, this shade was only available in a lip pencil and was also part of the craze surrounding Kylie Jenner's lip transformation; Kylie mentioned this is one of her go-to lip products. Since then is has recently been introduced to MAC's core lipstick collection.
Do you own any of these shades? If so, what are you thoughts and if not, what's your favourite shade(s)? I'd love to know as I'm always looking to add to my collection. FYI, I'm currently lusting after Stone and Retro :)
