My MAC Lipstick Collection ♥

 It's safe to say that MAC are my favourite brand for lipsticks ever. I'm just so in love with their colour range, their different formulas and that gorgeous vanilla scent which they have. For me no brand, except Lime Crime, has a better pigmentation to their lipsticks and it's strange but when I'm wearing any MAC products I immediately feel better about myself and to me, that's the most important thing a makeup product can do for you - give you confidence and make you feel beautiful all at the same time. MAC lipsticks are on the pricier end of the scale at €19 a pop but to be honest, they are totally worth the money. I now have 18, having used up some and given some away but these will last me for ages and I love having different shades to choose from too, it's nice to be able to wear a different colour everyday.

I also love the fact that MAC have their 'Back to MAC' scheme which has allowed me to get free lipsticks from time to time. I actually have six product empties at the moment (I steal them from my mam when she's done with her products - sorry mam!) so I'm due a free lipstick. I think I'll be going for Saigon Summer or Coral Bliss as I'm loving orange/coral shades at the moment and they're so pretty for spring and summer. If anyone has a review on these colours please feel free to share the link below so I can have a read.

My collection can really be divided into three groups - pinks, purples and mid-tones.

 Pink is always my go to shade for lipstick. I think I have a good range of pinks from MAC and as you can see Snob is my favourite pink and was actually the first MAC lipstick shade I ever bought. The shades I used least are Viva Glam Gaga, Pink Pearl Pop and Rose Lily, I just don't think they suit me as they're so light but looking at the swatches above I think I'll have to give them another go because they look quite pretty swatched. Lickable is a great 'going out' shade as I like to call it and it has some shimmer to it. Bombshell is a shade I wear a lot during the day as it's not too n your face.

The purple end of my collection is another one which I think I have a good colour range of from the MAC collections. Rebel is my newest addition and I'm not quite sure if it suits me or not which is a shame as I think looks lovely on other blondes. Plumful is the shade I've be using a lot recently and I really love it, the Lustre formula is really moisturising on the lips and the colour just pops. As you can see Up the Amp is the shade I've used most out of the bunch and it's such a great colour for night time wear. One of my favourite MAC lipsticks ever is Twig as you may have seen it featured on the blog before. It's a shade I wouldn't have picked up myself but after my mam passed it onto me I fell in love with it.

 Looking at the mid-tones I have, a lot of them seem to have red and orange undertones - I must have a penchant for those colours! My favourite MAC lipstick is Sunny Seoul, such a gorgeous light coral shade which is perfect for spring and summer. I also love Crosswires which is a red/orange shade and is really pretty for wearing during the day. Fan Fare, Lovelorn and Fabby are all shades which I wear offhand for daytime. I'm not in love with any of them particularly but they're find for wearing daily. Ladybug is the only red lipstick I've ever liked on me as it's not too bright or stand-out and that suits me fine as I like to be quite demure - at times anyway!

You can read my reviews on some of the lipsticks above and other MAC products which I own here.

Do you own any of these MAC shades? Which is your favourite?

  5. Funny how I've tried SO many lipsticks in my day but I have yet to try a MAC lipstick. I'm really interested to see what their formula is like. I need to back-to-mac a bunch of items so I'll probably pick up an everyday neutral nudey-pink if that makes ANY sense :)

  6. I'm actually not familiar with this brand so I'm glad to learn about it. You do have quite a fun collection of colors. It's always nice to have plenty of colors to choose from depending on what mood we are in when getting ready for the day! Some days are just made for red!

  10. I currently don't own any Mac shades. These shades are simply beautiful. I really need to redo my make up supply and add some of these pretty colors into my daily routine. I am going to check out MAC some more!

  12. NOW THAT"S A lot of lipstick! I only have three lipstick to be honest. I seldom use lipstick but I always put on lip balm or lip shiner. These are great collection though, looks like fun to be able to match your lips with the color of clothes you wear..

  13. I lov the soft peaches and pink colors. They look like shades I would wear. It's good to feel confident in what you wear make-up and clothing wise.

  14. Hehehe absolutely loving the collection! I'm Mac lipstick obsessed as well! We probably have all the same lipsticks lol.... Totally worth every penny :)

  15. I will have to give MAC lipsticks a try! I do own a few lipsticks, but don't particularly like the smell or the way that they dry my lips. So I will have to go to the MAC counter a try a few of these colors out. I would love a pink and a red lipstick that I could wear everyday. Thanks for the swatches!

  16. Your collection is enormous, it's more colors than I could ever wear in a year! Maybe when my kids are grown a little more and I actually get to take time for myself I'll return to make-up (and check out MAC!)

  17. I don't have or own Mac Lipstick but I love the shades that you have. I don't wear lipsticks that often but I like to have a few just in case

  18. Mac is one of my favorite brands for eye makeup and foundation--never tried them for lipstick. Typically I only wear gloss since I am so busy (and my boys hate when I leave "kisses" on their faces). Will definitely check these out the next time I am on the hunt for makeup.

  20. I have not heard of Mac Lipstick before!! This looks like an amazing color collection of lipsticks.

  21. I love MAC lipsticks big time, I had my ruby woo for years until last year when I went on holiday and a family member literally begged and took my lipstick hostage. Since that I have not had a chance to buy a replacement and as you said they are pricey especially since I am cutting back on things. Love your collection, I think I will start mine after my holidays.

  22. This is an awesome collection of Mac lipsticks indeed and I would love to get a couple because I don't own any. I love the Heavenly and the Rebel colors. Thanks for sharing.

  23. I love MAC lipsticks and I am envious of your wonderful collection! I wish I had all the colors, but my wallet will protest. So I just keep about 3 colors. Love the rebel colors you showed! :)

  24. You're ready for any possible outfit you could wear. I can't believe how many lovely shades you own!

  25. I am so jealous of your collection. I want one like this one. I love the red colors.

  26. Actually, I've not yet tried Mac but I gotta tell ya...you're brave. I have like three different shades of brown/red and that's about as adventurous as I get with my lipstick

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think I have 11 (or 12) but we only have one crossover - Twig! Mine are all neutrals or peachy browny nudes. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to MAC, I only buy safe things I know I'll use!
