Mac Lipstick Collection Swatches Review thegirlinspired Patisserie Coral Bliss Fanfare Chatterbox Mystical Alluring Aquatics

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.

Mac Lipstick Collection

Natural Lips

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.

Patisserie

Mac Lipstick Collection Swatches Review thegirlinspired Patisserie Coral Bliss Fanfare Chatterbox Mystical Alluring Aquatics
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.

Coral Bliss

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.

Fanfare

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.

Chatterbox

Mac Lipstick Collection Swatches Review thegirlinspired Patisserie Coral Bliss Fanfare Chatterbox Mystical Alluring Aquatics
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.

Mystical

Mac Lipstick Collection Swatches Review thegirlinspired Patisserie Coral Bliss Fanfare Chatterbox Mystical Alluring Aquatics

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!

New Things From MAC

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish MSF Soft & Gentle Cremesheen Lipstick Coral Bliss Fanfare Haul

It feels like it’s been ages since I bought anything from MAC but one of the Christmas presents from Ben was a MAC makeover and since you get to redeem the price of the makeover in products I picked up a couple of things.

I’ll be doing a separate post on my MAC experience as I thought it might be helpful for anyone that’s not had a makeup application done there before to read up on what to expect, but for today I thought I would just share what I picked up.

Coral Bliss & Fanfare Cremesheen Lipsticks

The MSF and coral lipstick were both products the makeup artist used on me and I really liked how they looked so I decided to pick those up. I’m in a bit of a lipstick kick at the moment (just bought 3 lipsticks from Revlon as they had a 3 for 2 deal on plus a free nail polish so I took advantage!) so wanted to get another lipstick. I always tend to get fairly neutral pink lipsticks so wanted to branch out and get something a little different. I was actually looking for Ravishing but they didn’t seem to have in and with indecision setting in I ended up reaching for the familiar pinks and picked up Fanfare.

The MSFs seem to have updated packaging with a magnetic closure which adds that luxurious feel. All 3 products are gorgeous and I’m very happy with them. I do have naturally quite dark lips so I’d like to get a nude lipliner to help the lipstick shades show up more true to colour, so if you’ve got any suggestions please let me know.

Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul & Swatches

Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul

I have another haul for you guys today. I know, I know, I seriously need to cut down on my spending. It all started with IMATS and it’s gone downhill from there (which is really bad considering I bought my first house just before IMATS!) I promise my spending habits will improve…. just as soon as I’ve checked out the new season clothes that stores all seem to be getting in right now… hey, a girls got to look good ya know!

 
Anyway, onto the haul. I did a video on this as well, so if you want to see that you can watch it here:
I rarely wear lipsticks, but I think part of the reason for that is because I don’t have a great deal to choose from, and I’m not entirely sure the shades I have in my collection suit me all that well. So I figured Boots was a good place to pick up some inexpensive lippies and here they are.

Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
Seventeen Supreme Shine in Barely Blush £4.99
 
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
This is a natural pink colour that is fast becoming an everyday favourite for me. The finish is more of a sheen than a shine but the pigmentation is decent – not totally opaque but the colour is buildable. It glides onto the lips very smoothly and feels really moisturising and lightweight. To be honest, it feels a lot like a lip balm which means it doesn’t dry your lips out and I really like that about it.
Seventeen Supreme Shine in Deep Secret £4.99
 
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
This is the same creamy formula as Barely Blush but the colour is a deeper, darker pinky-plum. Deep Secret is my vampiest lipstick so this will be lovely in the upcoming Autumn/Fall season and for nights out.
Seventeen Lasting Fix in Mulled Wine £4.29
 
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
 
Another creamy lipstick from Seventeen, although not quite as creamy as their Supreme Shine range. This is a deep muted red shade that leans more towards berry red than true red. When you want something a little more intense on your lips, Mulled Wine is an easier to wear daytime lipstick than the typical in-your-face red. Another great point to mention is that when this lipstick wears off it leaves behind a stain so you don’t have to worry about constantly reapplying this colour, and it doesn’t look dry either.
Rimmel Lasting Finish in Heartbreaker £4.99
 
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
 
Heartbreaker is a lovely berry pink shade, similar to Mulled Wine but with a definite pink tone. Again, this lipstick is creamy and non-drying, and will look beautiful in the colder months as an everyday colour.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 01 £5.49
 
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
 
From Rimmel’s Kate Moss range of lipsticks, this is a lovely bright red with a hint of pink running through it. It’s a blue toned red so it makes your teeth look whiter and it’s more of a matte/satin finish so it lasts a bit longer on the lips. The only problem is that it’s the most drying out of the ones I picked up, but that’s the only downside. It’s rather intense so I will be saving this one for special occasions and may have to pick up a red lip liner to go with it to give it real lasting power.
Mini Drugstore Lipstick Haul
 
I think Barely Blush is my favourite of the bunch and the one I’ll get the most wear out of, but I can’t wait for the colder months to really try out the darker shades.
