Mac Lipstick Collection

Mac lipsticks. You've heard of them right? I'm sure every beauty lover has and most likely owns a Mac product themselves. Over the past few years I've took the plunge and bought a few of these lipstick bullets of greatness. My collection is forever growing and I'm always on the prowl for a new found love, Mac if you're reading this you're more than welcome to send me all of the lipsticks, no I'm joking (or am I?). 

I love reading others Mac collections to help me add to my never ending list of new makeup purchases so I thought it would be fitting to share my thoughts on the few lipsticks I own. To make it easier for you I've split them up into categories: nude/pink, red, purple, and finally limited edition. For all lipsticks I'll give you the name, finish following with a mini review so you know what to expect. 

Nude/Pink 

L-R: Creme Cup, Faux, Velvet Teddy

Creme Cup
This lipstick has a special place in my heart as it was my very first Mac lipstick, gosh the good old days. This lipstick is a cremesheen finish giving you a creamy and glossy finish. The shade is very pigmented and a perfect everyday colour. I love using this in the centre of my lips on top of a lip liner to give a fuller lip effect [see how I do this here]. If you're just starting out your Mac lipstick collection I think this is a great colour.

Faux
Unlike the Creme Cup, this lipstick has a satin finish. This is my favourite as it almost matte in texture but isn't as drying on the lips. If you're looking for a darker brown nude but you're not quite ready for the plunge this is a great colour as it still isn't as dramatic

Velvet Teddy
I'm yet to meet someone that doesn't like this shade. It has a matte finish so the colour lasts forever. It is a "deep tone beige" and gives of a 90s vibe which has been seen many celebs and beauty bloggers. This colour can be worn both day and night, it's definitely one of my favourites.

 Red

L-R: Chilli, Ruby-Woo

Chilli
This shade is also a matte and another favourite of mine. Unlike the other, this shade is more of a burnt red colour. Since it is so dark it's perfect for the colder seasons. This is an autumn must have shade.

Ruby-Woo
Ruby-Woo is a beauty cult classic and many beauty gurus rave about this shade. It is a matte finish which is what I always opt for when picking a bold red. I love this shade, it's classic, bright and very Marilyn Monroe  The colour lasts most of the day and you don't need to worry about it being too dry. But, bearing that in mind you want to make sure your lips are properly primed and smooth before applying this, just as you would with any matte colour for better application. 


Purple

Plumful

Plumful
This is my only purple shade from Mac and another one of my favourites. It has a lustre finish, meaning that it is pretty sheer but the colour is buildable. I love just tapping this colour on my lips to give me a wash of colour.


Limited Edition



L-R: Creme D'Nude, Tumble Dry

Creme D'Nude
Just like Creme Cup the finish of this lipstick is a cremesheen. The colour is very light, a bit too light for my skin tone giving off the whole concealer lip look. But if you like that look give it a go, it's not a look that looks good on me. I have found a use for this lipstick however. I typically apply it to the centre of my lips to make the look fuller as well as rocking a subtle ombre lip.

Tumble Dry
I had high hopes for this lipstick but it didn't really meet my expectations. It has a lustre finish so it is pretty sheer. I've yet to wear this colour out as I didn't find it every looked great but if you've found out how to make this work let me know in the comments below as the shade looks beautiful but it just doesn't seem to be working for me.

So, that's it, my Mac lipstick collection! Satin and matte are by far my favourite finishes as I prefer to add my own gloss if I want too and I prefer a lipstick that has far more lasting power because reapplying lipstick is the most annoy thing and something I forget to do 75% of the time. So guys I have a task for you. Please mention in the comments below what shade I should get next as I need to reach the DOUBLE DIGITS!

Thank you for reading guys, let me know your favourite Mac lipstick is, go on I dare you.

  7. Lovely shades! You've got a lipstick for every occasion here :-) I'm a sucker for nude/light pinky shades of lipstick but the red Chilli coloured one looks so so nice! Perfect for this time of year too, great post!

    1. Thank you very much. I'm exactly the same, nothing beats a good nude/light pink. Chilli is perfect for this time of year and it definitely makes a look I think.

  8. These look amazing! I'd like to try out a red so I'm torn between Ruby Woo (your swatch makes it look great!) and Russian Red. My favorite right now is probably Hue :)
