My MAC Lipstick Collection



 Hello Lovelies! 

I hope you are all having a good week! I have wanted to do this post for quite a while now, but I always thought compared to other bloggers and youtubers my collection is slightly minimal. But I actually like my (ickle) collection and am really happy with the colours I have, so I thought why not! As you can see I have pretty basic colours and I don't have any of the crazier MAC colours and I'm sure a lot of you will think I have a boring collection but I decided to write about it anyway! So I'm sure most of you know I am a more neutral lip girl but I do like to brave a bold lip on a night out or on a special occasion, therefore it will come to no surprise to any of you that half of my collection are neutral shades. 

Hue
Without a doubt this is my favourite MAC lipstick of all time...maybe even my favourite lipstick out of all the brands of all time. This is my third tube of it! I think it is the most perfect nude lipstick, it is a pink toned nude so it doesn't give you that dreaded "dead-lip" look that so many of us try to avoid. It looks nice with a tan, without a tan. It's pretty much a good all year lip colour. The formula of this is a Glaze and I like that it isn't extremely opaque, you can build up the colour if you want. 

Creme Cup
I think that Creme Cup is Hue's mum. It's a slightly darker more opaque version. It's a slightly blue- under toned baby pink that I think would look good on any skintone. It is my go to everyday pink, you literally only need one layer of this on your lips and you're good to go. I think this is one of MAC's more popular shades and I can totally see why. As it's a CremeSheen formula it is also lovely and moisturising on the lips!

Shy Girl
This beaut was my first ever MAC lipstick would you believe. My lovely mum brought it back from New York for me and it was love at first sight. I wore it pretty much constantly for weeks after I bought it, but then moved on and went to other colours and forgot about it. Recently since the weather has been getting slightly better I have gravitated towards this again. It is a gorgeous peachy pink colour and I have been photographed wearing this and I just love the way it looks on me when I have a tan. Again another CremeSheen formula so lovely and moisturising too! 

Lady Danger 
Now we're on to the brighter colours. I got Lady Danger earlier this year by doing "Back to MAC". It was a lipstick I had seen over various blogs but never had the courage to buy it purely because I didn't think it would suit me, but since I could do the back to MAC I just decided to go for it and I can honestly say that I haven't regretted it one bit! I love this lipstick so so much! I have gotten so much use out of it since I've gotten it (which is unusual for me and a bright lipstick

Ruby Woo
I was after a classic red lipstick for so long and then I received this for Christmas this year and the hunt has stopped. I would normally tend to go for matte look lipsticks because you have the option of adding a gloss on top if you want to go for that look, so this was right up my street. Now when they say this lipstick is matte, they definitely mean it! Compared to Lady Danger which is another matte lipstick, it just feels completely different. It is a lot more drying so I would recommend a lip balm underneath but it is just the nicest red I've found so I am definitely willing to put up with the dryness for that!  

Girl About Town
And finally the most recent addition to my collection is the gorgeous Girl About Town. I won this in a Giveaway hosted by the gorgeous Vicky. Again it was one of those shades I had seen around for so long but never thought I would get away with it (I really need to start getting braver with my lip choices!) but again I am so glad I have this in my life now! It is a gorgeous cooler toned fuchsia pink that I honestly think would look gorgeous on any skin tone. It is an amplified finish so ladies beware! A little definitely goes along way with this one! 

So there you have it! My slightly basic MAC lipstick collection. I am really happy with all the colours that I do own and think I have good all rounders to cover me for all occasions but if you have any other recommendations for colours you think I'd like please let me know! I'd love to check them out!

  6. I think it is safe to say you have covered all corners in the lipstick category by MAC and they are all super duper perfect. I am going to try out Lady Danger in a week or two, it seems to look amazing on everyone so I am hoping I can pull it off - I love that it is a bright pink with a very orange undertone, so on trend.
