MAC Lipstick Collection


I don't think there's a beauty blogger out there who doesn't own, or at least lust over, a MAC lipstick. They're hugely popular amongst bloggers and beauty lovers a like and with their huge shade range, vanilla scent and choice of finishes it's not hard to see why. I got my first MAC lipstick a few months after I first started blogging and got completely hooked! I was so overwhelmed went I went to pick my first shade that I made a giant mental wishlist (Which I'm still trying to get through) and I knew I would need to go back to the counter very soon! Their shade range is just amazing. If you have a mental image of a shade you want and can't find it, try a MAC counter! Their range in finishes is also pretty great and I'm sure they have a lipstick to suit everyone! My favourite finishes from MAC has got to be there matte and amplified lipsticks. I love the look of matte lipsticks and I don't find their formulas too dry, at least nothing a little bit of balm won't sort out! 

MAC Lipsticks

MAC Lipsticks

MAC Lipsticks - Please Me, Pink Nouveau and Chatter Box

 (Top to bottom)
Please Me - Matte
Please me was the second MAC lipstick I bought and probably one of my most loved. It was bought on a whim and I sort of just grabbed, paid and ran because the counter was overwhelmingly full but I'm so glad I bought it. It's a dark, nude pink and really pretty. It's perfect for a natural look or smokey eye. It adds a bit of colour to the lips without being too 'out there'.
Pink Nouveau - Satin
Pink Nouveau is my only satin lipstick as I'm still a bit unsure whether I like the formula. It's kind of semi matte but sort of feels bit heavy. However, the colour is really pretty and that's what wins me over with this lipstick. It's a blue toned pink and a perfect everyday lipstick. It's great for adding a girlie pop of colour to the lips.
Chatter Box - Amplified
Chatter Box is very similar to Pink Nouveau but with a coral tone. It's really pretty and I love the amplified finish. I used to wear it pretty regularly but lately I've forgot about it and it's been pushed to the back of my drawer. I'll certainly be changing that soon!

MAC Lipsticks - Pleasure Bomb, Toying Around and Flat Out Fabulous

Pleasure Bomb - Matte
Pleasure Bomb was a limited edition lipstick from the RiRi collection, last year I think? I actually haven't worn this yet (!) but it's a really pretty cherry toned red. I think it's a really pretty shade for Winter so it should get some use soon!
Toying Around - Amplified
Another limited edition lipstick! Toying around is from the Fantasy Flowers collection that launched earlier in the year. I bought it as a present to myself for finishing uni and absolutely love it. It's had a lot of use throughout summer and although it's bright I don't think I can push it to the back of my drawer for Autumn and Winter. It's a pretty bright coral but it's really wearable.
Flat Out Fabulous - Matte
Last limited edition lipstick, I promise! Flat Out Fabulous is from the Retro Matte collection that launched last year. It's a beautiful deep pink toned purple, I love it! The Retro Mattes have a slightly harder feel than the normal mattes but they stay in place just as well and apply just as easy. This lipstick gets a lot of wear and I don't see that changing any time soon.

MAC Lipsticks - One Hold and Angel

On Hold - Cremesheen
On Hold was my first MAC lipstick and in all honesty I don't really like it any more. I'm not a huge fan of the cremesheen formulas as I find them too 'wet' and the colour doesn't really appeal to me any more. It's sort of a muted red with slight coral tones. I wear it every now and again but it's definately not a favourite.
Angel - Frost
Lastly is the all famous Angel, a pretty nude pink lipstick that is a perfect go to lipstick for those who don't like a bold lip. When applied it doesn't look like a frost at all and I was surprised that is was labelled as this at all. It's looks really pretty when used to pull together a natural or toned down look but is also perfect to pair with a smokey eye.

Do you own any MAC lipsticks?
