MAC lipstick collection posts are one of my favourites to read, I love seeing swatches and what shades everyone else has to help me decided which ones I want to pick up next. MAC lipsticks are definitely my favourite, they're such good quality and the colour range is amazing. Also, at £14 (when I bought my first ever one it was only £10, sigh) they're not completely unreasonable. Now that I've built up my collection I decided to do one myself. I've got 12 in total now, probably not as much as some Beauty Bloggers but I can see this number getting considerably larger because there's so many shades I still want (Shy Girl, Costa Chic, Ruby Woo etc). Here are the 12 shades I own so far...
Creme D'Nude: As you can tell by the name, this is a nude lipstick with a cremesheen finish. The MAC website describes it as a 'pale muted peach beige' which is pretty much spot on. I love wearing this when I've got super black smoky eyes on a night out to keep the rest of my face looking simple. One thing I'd say is that you have to be careful with this particular colour or it could look like you're wearing concealer on your lips - not a good look! I'm wearing it in this post here.
Angel: This is 100% my favourite nude MAC lipstick, I've been wearing this since I was about 16 and have kept repurchasing it. It's a pale, soft pink with a frost finish and apparently a favourite of Miss Kim K. Definitely a staple nude in my collection, see it in action here.
Snob: This is described as a 'light neutral pink' on the MAC website. I'd say its a light pink/purple, sort of a muted version of Saint Germain? It has a Satin finish and I love this for day time to add a subtle pop of colour to my makeup.
Pink Nouveau: This was in my March favourites post and I think it's just the perfect medium pink lipstick. It's a bright pink with blue undertones that makes me feel really girly every time I wear it. It has a satin finish and I love wearing it with a gloss over it for a night out.
Vegas Volt: At the moment this is my favourite Spring lipstick which might make an appearance in my April favourites. Described as a 'full power Coral' it has an amplified finish which means the colour pay-off is amazing. This is definitely one for Spring/Summer girls.
Impassioned: I remember when I first bought this lipstick I was obsessed with it. I wore it almost every day but it kind of got neglected over the Autumn/Winter months. An 'amped up Fuchsia' with an amplified finish, which is absolutely gorgeous for the warmer months. I can't wait to start wearing this again!
Lady Danger: 100% my favourite MAC lipstick, Lady Danger is a gorgeous orange/red with a matte finish. I know a lot of people are unsure about matte lipsticks but when it comes to MAC finishes, I'd say matte is my favourite (controversial?). This is one of the lipsticks from my collection that I wear the most and if I'm not sure how to do my makeup or want to get dressed up, I go straight for this shade. I think everyone should own Lady Danger.
Girl About Town: GAT is a bright blue Fuchsia pink with an amplified finish. A staple dark, girly pink that can finish off your makeup look for a special occasion. I think this is a colour that looks amazing on everyone but I've not worn it in a while. Doing this post has definitely reminded me of some of the gorgeous lipsticks I have in my collection.
Russian Red: Russian Red is my favourite blue toned red lipstick. It also has a matte finish which is why I think it's my favourite. It's such a classy colour and I always feel amazing when I wear it. I really want to try Ruby Woo which is slightly lighter but also has a matte finish. Does anyone own both and can tell me the difference? I wore this in this post here.
New York Apple: This is a 'muted red with pink shimmer' and has a frost finish. My sister brought me this back from her holiday last year and it's one I'd never usually pick up myself but I really love it. If you want a red lip but don't want to go too bold then this is perfect, I even wear this during the day.
Rebel: This was one of the first MAC lipsticks I bought when I decided to be more adventurous with my lipstick choices. It's a lovely pinkish-purple with a satin finish and I've worn it quite a lot since I got it. Again, I'll probably put this to the back of my collection and bring it back out again in the Autumn. I did a post on it here if you'd like to see it on.
Diva: I LOVE this lipstick and surprise, surprise it also has a matte finish. MAC describes is as an 'intense reddish-burgundy' and I had been looking for a colour like this for ages before I purchased it. During the Winter I wore this to death, it was the perfect statement lip for the festive season - see it in action here.
So that's my current MAC lipstick collection and I think I've got quite a wide range of colours. If you've done one of these posts please link it to me in the comments so I can add even more to my list! Hope you enjoyed this post and had a great weekend.
