I'm rather excited for this particular post, for those of you who follow me over on Instagram you know I recently uploaded a little poll asking which post you would like to see next the majority of you selected to see my Mac lipstick collection, for those of you who know me pretty well you know that I’m a huge fan of Mac lipsticks and I’ve begun to build a small collection of them so I’m going to give you a little look into my collection!
Dark Side (amplified)
First up we have non-other than my favourite shade from the range ‘dark side’ which is stunning deep Burgundy, I absolutely love this lipstick I find its the one that I get the most use of its really long lasting and its buildable too which is great if your in the mood for a bold look, the texture of the lipstick is really creamy which makes it comfortable to wear the finish once applied has a nice shine to it and it compliments my skin tone rather well.
This is a new purchase of mine it seems to be one of mac’s Most popular shades. It really is a neutral shade that can be worn during the day, if you have a light complexion it will really compliment your skin tone well. Its long lasting, once applied this lipstick is quite matte it can be a little bit on the dry side.
Is a dark vampy purple shade which I absolutely adore but the thing with this lipstick its harder to work with it feels quite sticky and you kind of have to drag it harder to apply it but I always like to put it out on the back of my hand before applying just to smooth it out a bit and make it that bit easier to apply. I would 100% advise purchasing a lip liner with this shade just to make it last longer and give it something to hold to.
I really particularly like this shade it's a deep red wine colour, it has a slight satin texture to it, it is really easy to apply as its quite creamy and smooth it can go a little patchy when applied but its totally buildable.
Is a cremesheen so it has a shine to it but it isn’t as long-lasting as the others that I mentioned above, the shade is a neutral coral beige which tends to suit all skin tones. Just like the shade velvet teddy, this lipstick makes a great everyday nude especially during the summer as it has a nice creamy shine to it.
Viva Glam Rihanna
This would be one of my unique shades (Vibrant Red) from my collection of lipsticks I would use this quite a lot it's actually quite messy because I used it so the photograph wouldn’t be the best. I must say this lipstick does have a lovely scent but a downfall is that it does smear quite easily I do find it just goes all over my face! You really don’t want to end up looking like the joker …
Now this shade you can either pull it off or its a total fail I think it really depends on what kind of makeup look your going if your going for a grunge look then I would suggest using this shade, the shade its self is a smokey greyish brown. I think this shade may be one of popular shades from Mac correct me if I’m wrong? But I’m pretty sure it is.
I bought this lipstick back in march I think it was? I was looking for a vibrant colour for the Summer I was just sick of sticking to my usual shades so I was looking for something a little bit different and I stumbled across this beautiful bright purple shaded lipstick and I had to have it, I really do like the shade of the lipstick, I would have been able to take a picture of it if my sister hadn’t of taken it with her to college! This is a great summer lipstick.
I know that Mac lipsticks are on the pricey side but growing up I've always wanted to try out their lipsticks and now I have a full-time job I’m able to do so! I don’t feel the need to justify myself when buying makeup and what not since I work quite had and I know there are alternative lipsticks that are dupes for some of these shades which I think I may write a post about! I purchased all my Mac lipsticks from Brown Thomas click Here to check out the range
