Today I wanted to share with you my MAC Lipstick Collection. I love doing collection posts! Yes, they take a bit longer to do but there’s something so satisfying once it’s all pulled together! Anyway, if you saw my MAC Experience post you’ll know I picked up 2 more lipsticks and so I thought I would share my very modest but growing collection.
Let’s start off by showing you my natural lip colour. Whenever I’m looking online for swatches I always like to see what a persons natural lip colour is as that can affect how a lip colour looks.
This is one of those My Lips But Better shades that just makes you look a bit more polished and put together, without adding much in the way of colour. Perfect for day-to-day, Patisserie is a Lustre formula so it adds a touch of colour without being drying to the lips.Although this does have a small amount of fine glitter, you can’t really see it until it starts to wear off, which isn’t a problem for me.
This is a Cremesheen formula so it adds a sheer but buildable colour without being drying. Similar to Patisserie’s Lustre formula but with a little more oomph in the colour department. As the name would suggest, this is a coral shade with pink undertones. Unfortunately this does seem to emphasise any dry patches on my lips so it’s not one I reach for as often as some of my other lipsticks, but one I’ll probably get more use out of in the summer months.
This is one of those classic, mid-toned pink shades with a warm undertone which flatters my skin. It’s become my easy, everyday favourite to throw on when I don’t know what else to wear, and it seems to go with almost anything. Fanfare is another Cremesheen formula so it glides on smoothly whilst having just enough drag to let you know it’s gonna stay on for a while, and can be worn sheered out or built up to a more opaque colour.
This one is an Amplified formula, meaning super saturated colour for your lips. It’s not quite as glossy as the previous lipsticks, but lovely all the same. This intense, bright-but-somehow-deep pink is what I’ll wear to any weddings/christenings etc. Again, this applies smoothly, and after a while sets to a semi-matte finish.
Not gonna lie, I bought this one mostly for the packaging, which is absolutely gorgeous and I don’t regret it one bit! Mystical is the deepest shade in my MAC collection, and whaddya know, it’s another Cremesheen.. This is a deep rosy neutral shade that’s lovely for day-to-day wear at this time of year.
So that’s my little collection, what’s your favourite MAC lipstick? Do you have any that you would recommend to me? Let me know in the comments!
