Mac Lipsticks Collection


This has been a long awaited blog post and is well and truly one of my favourites to share with you all! Mac has been my all time favourite beauty company for lipsticks for so long as you would know if you read my recent blog post! and over time I have slowly but surely been collecting and building on my collection. Finally, I have a nice amount to do a collections post to share with you all.

Speed Dial is by far one of my most loved out of my Mac lipstick collection. It is a gorgeous rose pink and my go-to ‘my lips but better’ shade. It is incredibly pigmented and long lasting but may require a few touch ups every now and then. I love wearing this during the day with soft neutral eye shadows and bronzed skin. It is also a cremesheen lipstick so of course very moisturising and creamy. 

Next is a new addition to my collection, one which I have been eyeing up for so long! This is in the shade Saint Germain. All I think when looking at this is Barbie! It is the perfect cool toned Barbie pink you will ever come across. Super, super pigmented and the colour pay of is unreal. I love wearing this with an all black outfit or on a night out. While it’s not my typical everyday shade this lipstick does give you a pop of colour to any look and if you’re all for bold makeup could totally be worn throughout the day.

My number one lipstick out of my entire lipstick collection is in the shade Creme Cup! I wear this lipstick almost every single day, on-the-go or throughout the night. It is the perfect cool toned beige-pink nude, pigmented and moisturising. I wear this lipstick with any kind of outfit whether it be for a casual day at uni or a night out with friends. It is really versatile and goes perfectly with my fair skin shade as it doesn't wash me out at all. 

The very first Mac lipstick I ever owned I received from my best friend as a gift and it completely sparked my love for their lipsticks. This was in the shade Hue. Hue is a super sheer nude with a glaze finish. I would describe it as a really soft peachy nude, very natural as the finish is super sheer almost like a lip gloss. At first this shade was really hard to work with my skin tone but paired over a pinker lipstick or with tanned skin it really does look amazing. As its sheer it also isn't messy so it makes for a perfect ‘work’ shade or if you’re just going for something super chic and natural for on the go.

Speaking of firsts, my first ever limited edition Mac lipstick was in the shade Sweet and Sour, which now is part of their permanent collection something which slightly annoyed me as I’d purchased it mostly because it was a limited edition. This lipstick, came out in the ‘ All about orange’ collection and was the lightest from the range. Like hue, Sweet and sour is quite sheer and doesn't have long wearing colour but with touch ups can provide a really nice flush of colour. I deffinetly do not recommend this for fair skin shades, it washes me out completely and is really unflattering. But with tanned skin it looks really subtle and fresh on the lips. Deffinetly a shade for spring and summer time.

The darkest shade in my collection is in the colour Media. This is my favourite lipstick throughout Winter and Autumn and always a must have for nights out. Media is a really dark red-wine shade and like most Mac lipsticks super pigmented and long lasting which is great for nights when reapplying lipstick can become very annoying! This lipstick suits both fair and darker skin shades which is also a bonus.

My two Red Lipsticks are in the shades Mac Red and Ruby Woo. I find both shades to be very similar in colour only their finishes are super different! Ruby Woo is in a matte finish and can be very drying but for the colour payoff and longevity of the lipstick it is super worth it. Mac Red is very similar in colour but slightly cooler and is a satin finish so moisturising but not messy at all. Both are incredibly opaque blue toned reds that I find are perfect for fair skin. 

My final Mac lipstick shade is in the colour Vegas Volt which is a super bright coral. I look at this lipstick and all I can think of is summer, it is the perfect summery and vibrant shade. I love wearing this on nights out for a huge pop of colour. This shade like others is opaque with great colour pay off but isn’t as long lasting as i’d like and does require touch ups! Because it’s such a bright colour I deffinetly recommend bringing along some concealer as well when you go to reapply for a perfect crisp line.
