The Mac Lipstick Collection

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?

    The Total Opposite

  24. Roger Scruton, philosopher, points out that between 1750 and 1930 the aim of art or music was beauty. People saw beauty as valuable as truth and goodness. Then in the 20th century it stopped being important. Then many artists aimed to disturb, shock and to break moral taboos. The earliest of these was Marcel Duchamp e.g. his installation of a urinal. It was not beauty, but originality and irony and other intellectual ideas that they focused on. This is what won the prizes no matter the moral cost. lavender cbd bath bomb
