MAC Lipstick Collection

Hello there;

I love the brand MAC, is it no secret. When I was brain storming what posts to do next, I thought AH a MAC lipstick collection I must have about 5 now. When it came round to it and I had 7. I was a little surprised. When did I buy the other 2?! Anyhow. Let me introduce you to my little black bullets.

Mac Lipstick Collection
Literally the only downside to MAC lipsticks. No way to know who is who because they all look the same. Apart from the first one of the left. The little rebel in the group.

Mac Lipstick Collection

I have a mixture of the different finishes. Matte, Amplified, Frost and Lustre. I used to adore all the Matte finishes but I am slowly growing to prefer the Amplified finishes a much better pay off. 

They all of course have the same MAC lipstick smell. Oh the vanilla. I love it.

Mac Lipstick Collection
So hard to get all the writing to line up. I tried...
Viva La Glam VI - This is my only lustre in the group. When I got this I thought the colour pay off was very poor. Leaving only a slight tint on my lips but since using it more, I have grown to love this colour. Very wearable with most looks and I use this probably the most out of my collection.

Heroine - No idea why I brought this. But I did and I shall keep it forever and love all of its purpleness. Heroine has a matte finish to it, just in case you didn't know.

Russian Red - Ahhh good old fashion red. This is my now go to red if I am going out. It is a matte too but I do find the formulation on this is a tad more creamier than the other mattes in my collection.

Ruby Woo - Now when I say I have 7 in my collection, I actually have 8. But I have Ruby Woo twice. I love it that much. Well did. Russian Red killed my love for it a little. But I will use up both tubes, but it is the most gorgeous blue toned red I have ever seen. It is a little more drying that the other mattes in my collection but still totally workable.

Show Orchid - The new guy in my collection not even worn this yet. But I do think it looks like the most perfect pink ever. A very slight shimmer in it too. This is one of the very reasons why I am falling in love with the amplified finishes.

Girl About Town - I wore this to death when it was my birthday. Went so perfectly with my kimono. It is a touch darker than Show Orchid, which I think makes it a touch more wearable. 

Angel - The one MAC lipstick I wish I never brought. I looks like a gorgeous nude with a slight pink hint to it. But when I wear it, it completely washes me out :( Need to try and find a way to wear this. Any ideas?

Do you have any of these in your collection?

  4. Lovely collection! I have 4 Mac lipsticks altogether also in a variety of finishes and I too like the ones with better pigmentation such as the Amplified and Matte varieties. I think you have chosen a lovely variety of shades and I have to say that show orchid does look wonderful :)

  19. Angel looks like such a nice shade, it's a shame that it doesn't work for you. You could always wear it on top of a bolder colour to give your lips a sheer but not washed out look. Or use a red lip tint first such as Benetint and then apply the lipstick.

  28. I always end up with more mac lipsticks than I think I have, I can just never resist the temptation! Angel was the first mac lipstick I bought and I love it, although I do need to add lipgloss over the top to make it not wash me out x
