My MAC Lipstick Collection!
SomeoneLikeYou Tuesday, December 17, 2013
For quite some time I've been wanting to show you all my MAC collection of lipsticks with lip swatches! I started collecting them a year and a half ago and have become addicted ever since. I just find the quality of the lipsticks unlike any others I've tried, and feel as though they truly have unique and perfect colors that I'm searching for. My little collection is the perfect six shades that I feel are essential in my every day looks. Of course, I look forward to expanding to more 'fun' colors, but these right here I've carefully planned out and saved up for because I wanted to get a lot of use out of them. At $15 a pop, MACs aren't cheap, but they truly are worth the investment and I hope to help you perhaps find a new color you fancy, or answer questions you have about one.
Myth//Satin //Light neutral nude
A complete opaque nude for me that blots out all my lip color. The satin finish is really nice because it doesn't set into the lines of my lips like other nudes do. It does make me somewhat look dead, so I usually put a little, tiny bit of light pink gloss over it.
Please Me//Matte//Muted rosey-tinted pink
Thee holy grail of pinks for me. The matte finish is perfect for baby-doll esque lips and the light rosy tint looks beautiful on everyone. This is a must have for anyone--a perfect everyday pink!
Speed Dial//Creme Sheen//Light blue pink
A slightly more daring pink than Please Me. The creme sheen finish is pretty because it adds life to my lips and acts as a gloss.
Lady Danger//Matte//Vivid-bright coral red
I originally want a brighter, cherry red as an alternative to Russian Red, so I ordered Lady Danger. Although I do love it, it is very orangey which I don't care for as much and find it hard to pair with things. I think Ruby Woo is more of the cherry red I am searching for.
Russian Red//Matte//Intense blusish-red
If you're looking for the perfect red lipstick, this is it. It's deep and vampy with blue undertones and gives a beautiful retro look to your lips. The matte formula can be very drying though and tricky when applying, but I like it because it helps my red lips stay on all day. I put a new one on my Christmas list because mine is nearly gone (first lipstick I've ever used up).
Rebel//Satin//Midtonal cream plum
My most recent purchase. Looks quite scary in the tube, but goes on quite sheer onto the lips since it's a satin. At times can be a bit patchy, but a few coats takes care of that. Such a lovely, out of the ordinary shade I highly recommend for fall/winter.
