Ahhh… MAC lipsticks, the range of colours, the sleek black bullet packaging, that delicious vanilla scent and that buttery smooth application to your lips. There are so many things I love about MAC lipsticks which has resulted in my little collection. It may not be huge, but it is filled with a lot of makeup love and happiness. I currently own six MAC lipsticks, one LipGlass and one Cremesheen Glass. Unfortunately MAC is a bit more pricey than I would like here in NZ, however most of my MAC lipstick purchases have been from overseas.
After reading about Cassandra’s MAC lipstick collection, I was inspired to share my own.
From left to right – (please excuse their messy uneven tips, they are well loved and well used!)
♥ Heroine // a bright purple/violet. Heroine has a satin finish and is medium to dark (pretty dark on me). I usually reserve this shade for autumn and winter, it suits the darker seasons perfectly.
♥ Violetta // purple with a warm undertone, a slight shimmer and a frost finish. This is my newest lipstick to the collection, you can see it in my latest MAC haul here.
♥ Up the Amp // a pinky purple that goes opaque on the lips. This is my most worn lipstick ever (tied with one other). It’s such a nice shade, can be worn for an every day look or something a bit more out there.
♥ Viva Glam Nicki 2 // described as a pastel lavender pink with an amplified finish. It is super cool toned and although I wish I could wear it every day, it only works alongside certain looks. It is soo pretty though.
♥ Saint Germain // a blue based pale pink with an amplified creme finish. To me this is the perfect Barbie pink shade and is the first MAC lipstick shade I ever owned. This is my other most worn lipstick (tying with Up the Amp). I love it and I wear it so much.
♥ Girl About Town // another pink with blue undertones….I’m starting to see a theme here! This medium-dark fuchsia pink has become my version of the classic red lip. It also has an amplified creme finish.
I also own two MAC lip glasses. Anthurium from the Maleficent collection which is a clean bright red and Galaxy Rose which is a CremeSheen glass. I’m not a big red lip person, however whenever I feel the need for a bright red Anthurium is the first product I look for. Galaxy Rose is a raspberry pink which has a very glossy finish. I usually can’t stand gloss, however this shade is amazing and it isn’t sticky at all.
Next on my MAC lipstick wish list is a nude shade (maybe Creme De Nude or Velvet Teddy), Candy Yum Yum and Snob. What MAC lipstick are you dying to get your hands on? Is there any shades you love and want to recommend?
