When I first started blogging, I was obsessed with Mac. I think most people at the time were, but over time I’ve come to love other brands and I don’t support Mac anymore. You can read a bit about that in this post here. I thought I’d share whats left in my lipstick collection from Mac, I pretty much halved my stash of lipsticks not too long ago as I’d had some for quite some time. I used to collect Mac lipsticks, so a few of the shades here are limited edition and I haven’t actually worn them in a long time. But for those of you who still love a good Mac lippie, I hope you enjoy!
There something about the smell of Mac lipsticks that’ll always remind me of my early blogging days, a sweet vanilla scent that isn’t too strong or too weak! I also love the bullets, theyre so simple but very sturdy and get the job done. I have a few different kinds of lipstick here so some of the packaging is a little different, but I’ll run you through what I have.
From the regular collection (in order of swatches left to right):
Mehr – A Matte formula which is a pretty nude/brown shade. A bit drying, but you cant expect a matte lipstick to be overly moisturising. This looks great as a 90’s kind of vibe on the lips.
Plumful – Lustre finish which was actually my first Mac purchase ever. A pretty plum shade, thats more sheer and wearable than others. My favourite kind of lipstick colour.
Brave – Satin finish, pretty nude colour. The classic Kylie Jenner favourite. Kind of a my lips but better colour but a bit darker.
Crosswires – Cremesheen finish, a very pretty coral red. I love this colour in the summer time and its very comfortable on the lips.
Please Me – Matte finish, a pinky/rose kind of colour that is very pretty when you want some girly pink lips. Again, not a massive fan of the Mac matte formula but it doesn’t stop me wearing it.
Craving – Amplified creme finish, a dark plum that pulls kind of red on my pale complexion. The formula is very similar to the regular Cremesheen finish but the colour is a lot more intense.
Faux – Satin finish, which is probably my favourite finish of Mac lipstick. A true my lips but better colour that is a little paler than brave and a bit more easy wearing. Its kind of a mauve-pink that isn’t too intense.
The others (in order of swatches left to right):
Royal Ball (LE Cinderella Collection) – Frost finish, a very pale nude, which actually washes me out but I never actually wear this anyway. I mainly bought it for the packaging (crazy).
Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE) – Amplified finish, a super bright blue toned pink which stains my lips like no other every time I wear it. Its a very pretty colour though.
Riri Woo (LE) – Retro Matte, the most drying lipstick I own. Wore it a few times back in the day but it makes my lips look horrific due to the formula. Pretty rose gold packaging however.
Goodbye Kiss (LE, Holiday Collection) – Amplified finish, a pink/purple shade that is actually very pretty on the lips. I don’t reach for it a lot as it doesn’t actually seem to match anything else I wear on my face.
Out For Passion (Huggable Lip Colour) – A pretty coral colour, nice sheer moisturising finish. My favourite lipsticks from Mac, love the sleeker packaging too.
Commotion (Huggable Lip Colour) – Same formula as above but a dark plum colour which I adore in the winter months.
Clever (Patent Polish) – Brown nude, with a really nourishing, wearable formula. This is my go-to lipstick when I have a tan and just want something subtle.
Kittenish (Patent Polish) – Very similar to Clever, but much more pink. Again looks super pretty with a tan but I also love it when I’m pale too.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed seeing my collection and my mini thoughts on each shade!
