I’m not gonna lie the 1st time I bought my MAC lipstick I was like, this is EXpansiiiiive, I won’t be buying any more MAC lipsticks. Are you crazy for £15.50….. No way 2 times Nandos will be worth it. But how wrong was I ? I got sucked into the good quality, opaque colour, long lasting power and cute smell which is vanlish and so MAC. And after a year or so I am sharing my MAC lipstick collection. I decided to cherry pick the colours I love and I couldn’t be more happier and satisfied with my picks. So let’s share, the swatches and my take on the colours and everything.
These top 3 are my kindish nude shades. CREME CUP is very pastel and blue toned lipstick, cremsheen formula which I like to pair with heavy duty smokey eyes. But I want pale lips but nothing browny which makes me look a little sick. So that’s that! Modesty is such a beautiful cremsheen formula. It’s a beautiful rosey-mauvy shade so much in. It looks very glossy. So your lips will look full, shiny and juicy. I love to wear it everyday with or without makeup. Mocha is a carmely,brown shade. Its satin finish which means it lasts longer than cremsheen formula. This colour is so rich and it’s great on the lips and it makes them look plump. I bought this lipstick purely when I found a girl on bus with NC30 complexion. It’s looked so blimey good on her more like peachy- nude and caramely than brown-brown.
So in the beginning I mentioned my first colour so it was CANDY YUM YUM a bright blue-toned pink (matte formula). Not a everyday wear but it made me fall in love with the pigmentation, lasting power and richness of this colour that I ended up buying a next craved colour which is next in the picture. It is FLAT OUT FABULOUS (purples-pink deep shade), retro matte formula. My swatch is bad. And the lipstick is smeared everywhere just because I used oil based makeup remover to remove my previous searches. This colour is so gorgeous and it’s looks great at weddings it’s looks great at parties and everyday too. It’s matte finish takes up glitters, liners, blue smokey eyes, golden eyes, green eyes. It’s goes with everything. You should Check it out ! It’s a retro matte formula and Lips look very velvety I don’t know how !!! But why not.
Coming on to the Reds on my cards. To be honest I’m the most shyest person to wear reds. I don’t know what it is, even the teenagers are rocking bright bold and reds and I’m like HOW. But a girl got to have reds in the collection. So D for danger is a matter formula and it’s a maroon shade it looks really lush and creamy on the lips I know because I have just filmed Aishwariya Rai inspired makeup look from her upcoming film Ae Dil hai Mushkil and I’ve got to admit it’s darn dupe of what she is wearing. Right and the middle colour Lady danger which is so bloody bold orangey-red shade looks quite muted here. But trust me it’s cappao in your face. RUBY WOO as, explained in my YouTube video it’s a blue toned red which means it has pink undertones. It looks just superb on any freaking person who has worn it . Trust me I have nearly asked 100 girls on YouTube and each time it turned out to be RUBY WOO. It has retro matte formula which means build up this colour and it will last you entire shift. Lips look very velvety I don’t know how !!! But why not.
L-R Chili, On Hold
Chili is a rustic brown shade, it has great pigment one wipe and strike a pose. It has matte formula which means it will last you longer. My advice is just to pair it right to justify the colour. Wear this lipstick with earthy tones makeup and dress into Browns, maroons reds and it will look so beautiful honestly. On Hold is a coral-pinkish lipstick with a a lot of gold sheen to it. It’s a cremsheen formula. So it looks very glossy on the lips. I can say it’s more like a kinder sister of Chili with more pink to it. It looks glorious on Mediterranean skin. I see you baby !!
Last but not the least my favourite Browns . Shall we dip into the 90’s …… Of course we must. Let’s start with WHIRL it’s a rosey-greyish brown colour with matte finish. I’ve never been a brown dooh-dooh lipstick fan so I just went easy and bought myself medium brown colour. To be honest I have worn it 2 times and I never felt it’s mine. I think it belongs to somebody else. Then I thought lets buy armed colour and I went in and bought SIN it was very intense plum colour for me but O-boy I feel powerful and fierce. It’s a matte formula and for deeper shades MAC should have offered retro-matte finish which means it will be transfer resistant but unfortunately if you touch your lips by mistake you will smear your really defined lips because its a matte formula. which is a shame but it doesn’t stop me wearing this lipstick. Absolutely lovely. Last but not least probably I have worn the most out of my entire collection it is ANTIQUE VELVET rich brown shade with matte formula. I created Kylie Jenner inspired makeup look using this lipstick and it was amazing. It’s extremely intense on the verge of looking black. Gets a lot of attention so if you are able to receive it. I dare you to try it !!!
