MAC Lipstick Collection with Swatches

Mac lipsticks are probably the most lusted after in the blogging world as there as so many different shades and finishes to choose from that your collection will just never be complete, no matter how many you add! My first ever Mac lipstick was Creme Cup, which is the culprit that kick-started my little addiction as I just fell in love with it. I love that all the lipsticks are divided into categories depending on the finish it has and that each lipstick has it own cute name. Plus the signature vanilla scent is so delicious and is one of the reasons that they are one of my favourite brands of lipstick to buy!

I thought it was about time I shared my little collection of Mac lipsticks as I love reading these kind of posts and I also now that I have ten I think it makes for more of a worthwhile post (I used to have 15 but sold Honeylove, Shy Girl, Blankety, Hue and Rebel purely as they didn't get enough love from me!) 

Nudes

L-R: Flair for Finery, Creme Cup, Pure Zen, Patisserie, Velvet Teddy

Flair for FineryLustre (Limited Edition)
This one was from the limited edition Divine Night Collection and I adore the gorgeous gold packaging! The shade is one of the palest that I own and it's a cool pink nude shade. On it's own it a little pale for me but I love using it over the top of slighter darker shades!

Creme CupCremesheen
As I said earlier, this was the first shade of lipstick I'd ever bought from Mac and I'm currently working my way through my second tube. I'd say it the perfect colour to choose if you're a Mac lipstick newbie! It's the prettiest baby pink nude that looks gorgeous with either natural makeup or a full on smokey eye. At the moment I'm loving wearing this over the top of Mac Dervish lip liner or Bobbi Brown Ballet Pink lip liner!

Pure ZenCremesheen
This one is also another one that I got through a whole tube of and I'm now on my second! It's a lovely peachy nude that has enough warmth to it that it doesn't wash me out. It's really similar to Shy Girl except a little less peach and more nude. Back in 2014, this was my go-to lip colour and I barely reached for anything else as I loved it so much, I don't reach for it as much but it's still a firm favourite!

PatisserieLustre
This one is the perfect 'your lips but better' shade. It's a pretty neutral nude pink colour which suits my natural lip shade almost exactly, so it's great for those natural but polished makeup days!

Velvet TeddyMatte
Probably the most coveted lip shade right now thanks to the queen of pouty lips, Kylie Jenner. This one is a lovely brown toned nude which just scream 90s supermodel! Pair it with Whirl lip liner and you really cannot go wrong.

Pinks

L-R: Lovelorn, Please Me, Dreaminess

Lovelorn, Lustre
This one is the second Mac lipstick I ever bought, (hence it's battered state). It's a beautiful pink that sits somewhere in between a neutral pink and a bright pink, it's perfect for adding a pop of pink to your makeup look without going overboard.

Please MeMatte
This is the most recent addition to my collection and I'm completely in love so far! It's a gorgeous muted Barbie pink type of shade and even though it's matte it feels lovely and comfortable to wear and is still super long lasting! 

DreaminessMineralize Rich
This one is part of the Mineralize Rich collection which is why the packaging is different, but don't fear, I do believe it is a permanent shade! It's a beautiful lilac toned baby pink shade which is kind of similar to Creme Cup but more pink and a bit cooler in tone. Think Mac Snob but much more wearable! (Full review here).

Corals/Reds
Mac lipstick collection, corals and reds, coral bliss, ruby woo
L-R: Coral Bliss, Ruby Woo

Coral BlissCremesheen
This is a shade I adore when it's summer time as it seems to make you look about 1000x more summery! It's a beautiful soft coral shade and as I'm not a huge lover of bright lipsticks, this one is perfect for me as it gives a pop of colour without being too much!

Ruby WooRetro Matte
Probably the most popular shade of red that Mac do but also the most drying! It's the perfect vivid, blue toned red (the type that will make your teeth look super white). I haven't used this one much yet as I just haven't found the right occasion to wear it, but I'm thinking it will look gorgeous around Christmas time!

    1. Thanks doll! Yeah I can't wear it on it's own as it's too pale for me too but look great in the centre of the lips over a darker lipstick to create the slight ombre effect! xo

  23. I love the look of Pure Zen! My favorite shade is probably Twig. I recently picked up Ruby Woo and am definitely excited to get more use out of it this Christmas.

    PS I definitely love that all your lipsticks are loved and used, some bloggers go about how they have their favorite shades/products that are virtually untouched haha.
