MAC Lipstick Collection


I could stand swatching MAC lipsticks all day long but I actually only own five! Most of the ones I own are from limited edition collections too. It must be the thrill of buying something before it sells out that makes me buy them!

L-R: Hue, Cut a Caper, Outrageously Fun, Viva Glam Nicki, Watch Me Simmer

Until recently, I was always a lipgloss girl but I've started to gain confidence in wearing lipstick on nights out. I love the bold look a lipstick can give as most lipglosses are quite sheer.


MAC Hue (Glaze finish)


MAC Cut a Caper (Lustre finish) - Limited Edition
MAC Outrageously Fun (Cremesheen finish) - Limited Edition

  
MAC Viva Glam Nicki (Satin finish) - Limited Edition

MAC Watch Me Simmer (Amplified finish) - Limited Edition



I love the way MAC have different finishes such as amplified, glaze, matte, etc so you can find a lipstick to suit your tastes. From my experience with the five lipsticks I own, I've found that glaze and lustre are quite sheer and glossy but buildable. Cremesheen seems to be a bit more pigmented than the previous types and it's even more glossy. The amplified and satin finishes are really pigmented and you get a very strong colour from one swipe of the lipstick. The satin finish seems to be the most drying and shows up any flaws in the lips. You can solve this with a lip scrub and lip balm beforehand though.


L-R: Hue, Cut a Caper, Outrageously Fun, Viva Glam Nicki, Watch Me Simmer



There are a few lipsticks from the permanent MAC range I have always fancied buying and I may treat myself next year. The shades I fancy most are Creme Cup and Morange. I also have my eye on a few of the lipsticks from the Strength collection coming soon.

Please let me know what your favourite MAC lipsticks are. I would love some recommendations :)

  2. I really like "Cut A Caper" on you, it's so natural and pretty! I'm looking for a nice natural looking lip colour at the minute. You're lucky, they all suit you and look lovely!

  3. "Outrageously Fun" is definitely a shade that would look so stupid on me sadly but it looks HOT on you! Wish i could pull off bold lipsticks, I have to stick to boring pale pinks :( boo!
