My Mac Lipstick Collection


Thanks to all the makeup girls on Instagram, I am now officially hooked on Mac lipsticks. Normally when I wake up the first thing I do is make a coffee and scroll through my Instagram feed, this is when I browse my favourite 'Instagramers' such as 'Bellaobsession and 'maya mia'. These girls both have an amazing makeup collection and post daily posts photos of their makeup looks paired with their favourite Mac lipsticks. 

When it comes to lipsticks, Mac cosmetics really do make the best colours at a reasonable price. Every time I visit Mac, the lipstick display stand always draws me in and I leave with a hand painted full of lipstick swatches. 



Over time I come to learn what shades and finishes suit me, my favourites of the moment are 'Please me', 'Angel', 'Coral Bliss' and 'Creme cup'. I never used to be a lipstick 'kinda' girl I honestly could never be bothered! I tend to focus on my eyes with eye shadow and just stick with a Revlon Lip butter to give me some subtle colour. On my wedding day I wore 'Angel', It is one of the most beautiful 'your lips but better' colour. I recommend it to everyone with a fair to tan skin tone. I picked up 'Gel' on a whim, I wouldn't wear it now but I think it would make for a good editorial look. It has a very ethereal look to it when applied on the lips, It doesn't give much of a colour but has a beautiful Gold shimmer. 

I own some lipsticks in my collection that aren't really suitable for my skin tone, that's why I'd advise purchasing a light beige such as 'Myth' to mix with slightly darker shades to make them more wearable. I was given Mac's Viva Glam II, which is unfortunately a tad too dark but when mixed with Myth and topped with Revlon's Bellini Color burst lipgloss it creates a perfect custom nude lip. 


Every time I finish a Mac product I always remember to store it so that I'm able to build up a 'back to Mac' worthy collection. I ended up with eighteen Mac items ! I always feel so guilty when I back to Mac, after all nothing in life comes for free right? Anyway I so super excited to restock my lipstick collection and I knew this time I wanted to move away from my usual nude shades and go for something more bolder. If you're a fan of Nars matte lip pencil in Red square you will love 'lady danger'. It has a subtle Orange hue and a matte finish. Matte finishes on me seem to be the most flattering and long wearing, as I have smaller lips they make them a lot bolder and fuller. In terms of lipliner, I stocked up on my favourite NYX lipliners, they make the wider range of colours! You will be sure to find a colour to match your favourite Mac lipstick!

So i'd love to hear what your favourite Mac lipstick shade is? It may help me out on what shade to purchase next!
