MAC Lipstick Collection

One of my favourite posts to read has to be MAC lipstick collections. I just love finding out what other people own and discovering new shades that I want to add to my own little stash.  I own 8 lipsticks in total from MAC and I honestly love and wear every single one of them. I will warn you in advance that this post will be a little photo heavy and a couple of my lipsticks are slightly gross and melted. Oh well, shit happens.. (I'm looking at you cremesheen!) but here it is. 

 | Angel | Hue | Myth | Creme D'Nude | Impassioned | Girl About Town | Russian Red | Ruby Woo |

MAC ANGEL

I would describe this as the perfect baby pink which is often hard to come by. I find that some are too blue toned and in your face but this is beautiful and subtle. Famously loved by Kim Kardashian. This was also the first MAC lipstick I ever bought.


 MAC HUE

As you can see this one is slightly gross and battered. I honestly think it has to do with the glaze finish and the fact that it lives in my handbag which makes it prone to melting. This shade is literally the most perfect 'my lips but better' colour. I throw it on when I just want a sheer but pretty coverage. If you want the perfect nudey sheered out pink - look no further. 


MAC MYTH

This is the newest addition to my collection. I recently won a giveaway run by the gorgeous Megan from Thumbelina Lillie where I won a MAC lipstick of my choice! I chose Myth as I wanted another nude but something that wasn't too brown with slightly more pink/peach undertones. This has a satin finish so you can really achieve that 60s nude lip or equally you can sheer it down to a more natural finish by patting it out. No concealer lips here! Oh and make sure you check out Megan's blog, she is super lovely and her blog is definitely one of my favourites.


 MAC CREME D'NUDE

As you may have noticed from the swatches above, this isn't a million miles away from Myth in colour. That being said I find this much harder to work with. The consistency is really thick and can make you look like you have the dreaded 'concealer lips' if you're not careful. This is my other melted lipstick and again I think it's down to the finish. Definitely my least used MAC lipstick. 


MAC IMPASSIONED

Now onto the exciting shades I own. This is definitely the brightest colour in my MAC collection and my go to colour in the summer time. Impassioned is an amped up fuchsia - I would even go as far as saying it's verging on neon pink. All the same it's absolutely gorgeous, the pigmentation is incredible and it looks amazing with a tan. 




MAC GIRL ABOUT TOWN

Unfortunately the label at the bottom of this one has fell off but it is the infamous Girl About Town. I think out of all my brights this is my favourite. It really is the prettiest pinky purple in le world and apparently one of Chezza Coles favourites. If you don't own this I urge you to take a look or alternatively Revlon do a fab dupe called 'Fuschia'. 


MAC RUSSIAN RED

I think this should be a staple lipstick in every girls lipstick collection. Russian Red is a blue toned red which is medium to dark in shade. It's just so classic and beautiful and with the matte finish it lasts literally all night long. It's not one of MAC's bestsellers for no reason! With it being blue based it also makes your teeth look really really white!




MAC RUBY WOO

Ruby Woo is another blue based red but it's much more a classic red. I would even go as far as saying it's the perfect red lipstick. I think the shade is universally flattering and again it's super long lasting due to it's matte formula. I would definitely advise priming your lips when using any of the matte lipsticks from MAC as they will show up flaws but aside from that this really is the best classic red lipstick I own.

  21. I always go for bright lipsticks when I am in MAC but this might have just changed my mind, I love Angel!!! It looks adorable, i feel as if my collection might need to be toned down from Candy Yum Yum and various shades of bright pink! Great post!
