If there's one thing I love beauty wise, it's a good lipstick. I have around 50 lipsticks (ridiculous, I know) which I have collected over the years, but my favourites have to be my Mac shades. Moisturising, pigmented, long lasting and with a colour/finish range that seems never-ending, Mac lipsticks are the crème de la crème. I have wanted to do this post for ages but it took quite a while to put together all the swatches and photos etc. I have 10 Mac lipsticks which some may think is a lot, and others may think it's not many at all. I also just want to quickly point out that I am not in any way trying to show off about how many lipsticks I own or which ones I have etc, I just thought it would be a fun post and besides, every blogger loves a good Mac post! Enjoy..!
Ruby Woo (matte): The cult classic & the perfect matte red. Looks gorgeous dressed up or worn casually to take attention away from tired eyes (always a plus).
Creme d'Nude (cremesheen): A gorgeous sheeny nude which is perfect with dark eyes and bronzed skin.
Show Orchid (Amplified): Possibly my favourite lipstick colour EVER. It is so unique and striking, despite it being very difficult to get hold of. Show Orchid is a blue toned pink which is (I would say) for dressing up only! Full review here.
Strength (Frost): A panic buy & a mistake buy. I bought this colour at the airport when I wanted a new lipstick for holiday and thought it was really unique. It's a bit of an odd browny shade and the frost finish definitely isn't one of my favourites.
Creme Cup (cremesheen): My favourite daytime lipstick. The cremesheen formula is my favourite as it is the most moisturising, and the colour is such a gorgeous light pinky/nude which I find suits me.
Lady Danger (matte): My first ever Mac Lipstick. It is an orangey bright red; brighter than Ruby Woo but not quite as bright as Morange.
Asian Flower (sheen supreme): I was a little surprised that I chose this colour as I wouldn't usually consider it, but I have so much love for a pastel purple lip, and this has such a gorgeous shiny finish and perfect pigmentation.
Girl about Town (Amplified): A less glitzy version of Show Orchid. I don't like it as much but it is still super pretty, bright and fun.
Myth (Satin): This is a less moisturising and slightly lighter version of Creme d'nude and is a pale nude which can look slightly unnatural. It can look great with a really dark smokey eye though.
Rebel (Satin): I did a full review of Rebel (see here) in which I proclaim my love for it. It is a really unique berry take on a gothic style lip and lasts impressively.
Do you have any of these lipsticks? What's your favourite Mac shade?
