My MAC Lipstick Collection... So Far

Monday, 7 September 2015
Hello lovelies!

Like pretty much everyone else in the world, I've got a real obsession with MAC lipsticks. The pigments are amazing, they last all day, and there are so. Many. Colours.

Every few months, my payday treat to myself is a new MAC lipstick (the idea is that I allow myself a little treat so that I don't go crazy on the spending... It doesn't always work that way for me.) While I'm counting down until my next payday and I'll soon be choosing my next shade, I thought I'd share with you the little collection that I've built so far.

Left to Right: Fanfare, LadyBug, Brave, Capricious, Costa Chic

Fanfare is a beautiful pink shade, which I tend to wear when I want a little pop of colour. The formula is really creamy with a gorgeous sheen, but not at all sticky and really wearable. It's such a lovely girly shade which you can all the time.

For anyone who's only just started wearing lipstick, trying to rock a red can be a little bit daunting. LadyBug is the perfect beginner's red lipstick. Its rich texture lets you build the colour up layer by layer, which means it is subtle enough to wear during the day but you can also use it for a bold night-time red.

Brave is my go-to shade. Subtle and flattering, Brave is a lipstick that every girl needs in her arsenal. I love it as a day-to-day lipstick to give a pretty, natural-looking finish.

Capricious is my all-time favourite Autumn lipstick. The pigment is perfect, just the right amount of purple without looking over-dramatic. I'm so excited to start wearing this colour more over the Autumn!

I was bought Costa Chic as a present, and I was pretty worried about where or not I'd pull off such a bright colour. But it's a fabulous shade, especially for summer and makes such a nice change from my usual soft pinks.

What's your favourite lipstick? Do you have any recommendations for my next purchase?

    1. Thank you love! I think I've done quite well by getting a few varied ones so far! :)
      I LOVE Russian Red, but I've heard it's very matte? I'm not sure if that texture would work for me, but I definitely need to give it a try! xo
