MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC Lipstick Collection
MAC Lipstick Collection
Being completely lipstick obsessed, with a collection of over 100 lipsticks(I think) it only felt right to kick my first post of 2015 off with a peek through my MAC lipstick collection. I currently have just 8 MAC lipsticks in my collection in different shades, formulas and finishes. My collection may be small at the moment but I guarantee that overtime it will expand, slowly but surely, especially now they're a purse snatching £15.50 per lipstick. Oh how I hate it when the prices go up. Nonetheless, it won't stop me purchasing more.

The majority of my collection are pinks, purely because it's my favourite colour but also because I think it's the one colour that I think suits me best out of them all.

Candy Yum Yum
 A striking bright pink which looks almost neon on the lips. It's the only MAC lipstick I own with a matte finish which I happen to love. It looks incredible when worn with a tan in the Summer but doesn't really suit me that much when I'm my ol' pale self. The pigmentation and longevity are incredible, it lasts on the lips for a good 4 hours at least before it needs a touch up but the downside is that it seems to bleed around the edges. Not pretty. 

Patisserie is one of the two nude shades that I own. Not my favourite out of them both but a pretty shade nonetheless. It's a pinky-beige shade with a lustre finish that looks almost like a gloss once applied as it leaves a beautiful sheen. It works seriously well with my pale skin as it looks incredibly natural.

Viva Glam Gaga
I bought this from a blogsale a few months ago and it also has a lustre finish. It's a lovely light, neutral pink which looks quite sheer and leaves a sheen on the lips like a gloss would do. 

Hue is another of my nude shades but my favourite and most used out of all of the lipsticks in my MAC collection. It's more of a pinky nude as opposed to a brown tinged nude which works well with my skin tone. Whenever I want to sport a nude lip this is the lipstick I go for. It's so natural, I'd even go as far to say the ol' blogger saying 'my lips but better'. But seriously, it's that good. 

Pink Nouveau
This is the very first MAC lipstick that I ever purchased and I still haven't finished using it yet. It's a stunning mid toned pink with a satin finish which again works well with my skin tone. It is incredibly pigmented and glides on smoothly. It also feels rather creamy, no dryness in sight.

Viva Glam Nicki
Viva Glam Nicki is another lipstick that I purchased from a blog sale a few months ago. I've not actually used this lipstick very much, maybe at least once. It's a rather intense and bright coral shade with a satin finish. It's definitely not the best shade for me to wear as it looked quite clown like against my skin tone, I imagine it would look better with a tan or on a darker skin tone.

Saint Germain
Yet another one of my favourite lipsticks out of my collection. Saint Germain is a beautiful, baby pink shade in the amplified creme finish which as you can imagine feels buttery on the lips. It's a 'barbie' kinda shade with blue undertones which surprisingly doesn't make me look washed out at all. 

Chatterbox is an appealing light pink-coral shade that leans more pink on me. This is my latest MAC lipstick purchase and I've only used it just the once since purchasing. It's verging on the bright side but not almost neon like Viva Glam Nicki or Candy Yum Yum. Chatterbox is also in the amplified creme finish which is another of my favourite finishes, alongside satin and matte.

And there we have it. No doubt I will be purchasing some more MAC lipsticks in the future and expanding my collection. MAC are by far my favourite high end brand for lipsticks. They are spot on with their shades, formulas and finishes, and oh my they are all heavenly scented with vanilla. You can purchase MAC Lipsticks here.

What have you got in your MAC Lipstick Collection? Have you tried any of the above shades?
