MAC Lipstick Collection
MAC lipsticks are my weakness. Every time I go into the shop I find another one that I want to buy and I keep a list of all the shades that I like so, if I don't purchase it straightaway, I can go back and buy it another time. Today I thought that I would share with you my collection of MAC lipsticks.
The first MAC lipstick I ever bought was Peach Blossom. This is a very pale pink, which I use if I want to wear a lipstick but I don't want too much colour. Peach Blossom is part of the cremesheen range so it has a glossy finish, however, I find that it doesn't last as long as their matte lipsticks.
Another one of MAC's lipsticks that I wear quite a lot is Patisserie. This is one of their lustre lipsticks - so it has a similar glossy finish to Peach Blossom. Patisserie is described by MAC as a 'sheer creamy neutral pink', so I also use this if I want to add a hint of colour but not too much colour.
One of my favourite lipsticks to wear in Autumn is Twig. This is a gorgeous pinky-brown shade and has a satin finish, so it's similar to a matte lipstick but slightly more moisturising. Twig lasts on my lips between 4-6 hours before it needs reapply. I usually pair Twig with MAC's Soar lip liner and you can read my full reviews of these products here and here.
Velvet Teddy is a lipstick that the majority of people own so when everyone was going crazy for this lipstick I had to jump on the bandwagon too! It's a light brown shade with a matte finish. Velvet Teddy lasts for around 6 hours without needing to be reapplied and it's great if you want to over-line your lips and make them look fuller.
Milan Mode is probably the brightest lipstick that I own! It's a bright pink shade with some sparkle in it, and I usually save this lipstick for Summer. This is part of the lustre range so it gives a glossy finish, however, I find that Milan Mode lasts longer than other lustre lipsticks I've tried and that's probably due to how bright the colour of it is.
For my birthday, my friends bought me Mocha. This is very similar in colour to Velvet Teddy, however, it's a slightly darker shade of brown. Mocha is a satin finish lipstick so it's more comfortable to wear than matte lipsticks and still lasts a long time. I pair Mocha with MAC's Nice 'n' Spicy lip liner and this combination works well together.
Finally, I bought MAC's Sin lipstick for Halloween. This is a deep blue red shade (so it was perfect for my Vampire look), and it matches perfectly with MAC's lip liner in the shade Dark Out. I loved wearing this for Halloween, however, it's a lot bolder than the lipsticks I usually wear so I haven't had another occasion where I can wear Sin yet. The matte finish is very long lasting, however, I did find it difficult to add another layer of this lipstick over the top of the previous layer once it had dried.
My MAC lipstick collection is still growing and I'm sure that in a few months I will be the proud owner of many more MAC lipsticks! What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
