Every now and again I like to go through my MAC lippy collection and admire the sheer beauty of them (I am a MAC lipstick enthusiast, in case you couldn’t tell!).
I started collecting them last year, when I was finally earning enough money to justify the thought of paying £14 for a lipstick. Back then I wasn’t that obsessed with makeup and stuck to high street brands. Now, I’m a high-end lover, with a passion for splashing out on a luxury lippy every now and again (every pay-day!).
When taking a peek at what colour I felt like wearing today, I thought it would be a nice idea to show you some of my faves that I wear more so than the others, so enough of me waffling and more of some full on lipstick loving action!
Creme Cup is the newest out of the collection but has to be my favourite yet. It’s a gorgeous, nudey pink that gives a gorgeous girly sheen to the lips. This is my every day lippy that’s perfect for work, as it isn’t too much. It goes with practically any look as well, especially a smokey eye! Creme Cup is a cremesheen finish, which means it has a much creamier consistency than the other MAC lipsticks. They are really comfortable to wear, but don’t tend to last as long on the lips due to the formula.
Speed Dial is another pink, but this time with a slightly deeper undertone. I love this for both day time and night-time and it’s a really versatile and easy to wear colour. Again, this is a cremesheen (my fave!).
Ahh, Ruby Woo. Who doesn’t love this one? It’s a gorgeous red with blue undertones, so perfect for those with cool toned. It’s a gorgeous, elegant red, that is actually very wearable seeing as it’s a red. This is a matte finish, so it is pretty drying. If you have very dry lips, you will need to lip balm them up beforehand. But, nevertheless, it’s a beauty.
Girl About Town
Girl About Town is a lovely fuchsia pink! Which I have snapped up as my night out lipstick. This lasts for absolute ages on the lips too, so even more so of a reason to wear on a night out. I lovee this one. It is an Amplified finish, another fave of mine, as the colours are extremely pigmented and the formula feels nice on the lips. Bonus!
And last but certainly not least, is Costa Chic. I am a sucker for anything coral coloured and this satisfies that need brilliantly. I love the 80’s feel about it, and it is the perfect summer shade. If you like bright, coral lipsticks, then you will like this! It is a frost finish, so not the boldest formula, but with this colour, you don’t need it anymore bold!
So, there’s a few of my favourite MAC lipsticks, what are yours?
