MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC Lipsticks are just fabulous, but so expensive. For all you students I feel your pain for £15.50 for a lipstick especially as there are loads of dupes on the market. But there is something about MAC lipsticks, and slowly but surely I am collecting them up. I currently own seven, and I feel like their could be a few more after my trip to New York where they are at a much more affordable price.

Sorry this close up is slightly blurry, and also as much as these are as close as possible to the actual colours of the lipstick keep in mind that they are swatched on white paper. As I thought this would be better as of course they look slightly different on everyone lips.

MAC Creme D'Nude | Cremesheen finish, a very pale nude but because it isn't matte it doesn't give you the concealer lip look. This is such a nice everyday shade for anyone who loves nude lips, so wearable and not at all drying on your lips.

MAC Cherish | A nude with a slight orange tone to it, rather than pink as some nudes are. A satin finish isn't quite matte, but isn't shiny as such on the lips so is the best of both worlds making it a nearly matte lipstick which is really comfortable to wear. This is my first every MAC lipstick, and again an everyday nude.

MAC Velvet Teddy | This lipstick has had so much hype around it, I'm sure the majority of people own it because if you were going to go for a MAC lipstick this is what I would go for. Although I don't always like to give into hypes around beauty products, this one is amazing. For me this is the perfect nude and I love matte lipsticks, personally they are the ones for me with their long lasting qualities, and opaque colour pay off.

MAC Taupe | A darker version of Velvet Teddy, however I was recommended this when Velvet Teddy wasn't available and it is very similar. It is an ideal my lips but better colour for me because it is slightly darker than velvet teddy. However it is slightly, very slightly brown toned rather than pink so maybe a more obvious my lips but better. Again this has a matte finish.

MAC Whirl | The latest addition to my collection. Just released to follow on from the much loved lip liner, this is just an amazing colour- not helpful I know but I just love it and it may have over taken slightly from my Velvet Teddy. With the slightly pinker undertone to it, and matte finish this is my go to lip colour of choice.

MAC Diva | I just rave on and on about this lipstick, this is my favourite dark lipstick the purply red deep dark lipstick is just beautiful. I am a dark lip lover at heart, and although I rarely have the courage to wear this out during the day its a beautiful colour, especially for this time of year. Another matte finish, but I find this lipstick especially comfortable to wear for a matte lipstick and it really does stay put.

MAC Barbecue (LE) | This lipstick is unfortunately is limited edition, however a bright red this is a staple in any girls makeup collection. A true, bright, timeless red which will forever be on trend and the key to pulling together a look. I have gained a lot of use of this lipstick, with its matte finish making it ideal for any occasion.

So there you have it, my seven lovingly cared for lipsticks all chosen after a lot of thought. As you can tell nudes, and dark lips are kinda my thing. However any other suggestions would be welcomed.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick? If you could only have one lipstick what would it be?

  6. I love that there are so many choices for nude in MAC. I currently own only one lipstick from MAC, but the Velvet Teddy will soon be mine!

  7. I have 4, I used to have 5, but Cyber was just too dark for me, and suited a friend better! My favourite is Rebel, but in summer Morange is great and as Heroine was the last one on the rack, I had to snap it up. My current favourite has to be my Velvet Teddy, as it is so toned down compared to my usual shades. That said I always go back to Rebel, I have loved it for 3 or 4 years now and will need a new one soon enough! Love MAC lipsticks so much! :)

  8. Velvet Teddy is one to add to my wish list - you've got a great collection going on!

  13. I just can't escape from MAC Diva, it's been on my wishlist forever and I'm running out of reasons not to buy it!

  14. I'm still desperate to get my hands on Velvet Teddy! I didn't want to cave into the hype at first but it's just too pretty to resist! You have such a lovely collection :)

    My favourite and most daring Mac lipstick is probably Up the Amp! I don't wear it that often but it's such a pretty purple/pink shade :)

    Becki, xo
